Just a little exposure to a crowd and one can see that there are quite a few people who are overweight. It is always tempting to eat a Chinese restaurant or grab a few items at a drive-in fast food store where the foods are greasy and oily and/or laden with monosodium glutamate (MSG) that makes you overeat. Lack of exercise is also a factor when talking about obesity or excessive weight.
Being overweight is always a problem regarding the control of your cravings. For, example, most people could not resist ice cream or sweets when they have the opportunity to buy and eat one. There is an abundancy of food in the United States and with the rise of McDonalds, KFC and other fast food stores the tendency to eat fatty and low nutritious foods is irresistible. These types of food make one a bit relaxed especially when one has too much stress in his system. And like it or not, one will likely eat pizza or ice cream rather than spinach when they feel stressed or down in the dumps. This tendency to take comfort in these kinds of foods will lead to overeating since these “comfort foods” really are good to the taste but are very much deficient in nutrients which the body seeks and needs. The result will be more food intake from “comfort foods” to get the nutrients the body needs to remain healthy and more food intake means more calories taken in. A sedentary person who often eats high calorie “comfort foods” will of course suffer weight problems such as obesity. The only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than what you take in. This is easier said than done and it takes intervention to be able to implement the task of reducing calorie intake whilst burning them at a faster rate.
This is where acupuncture West Orange becomes a great friend that you can rely on to help you overcome food cravings, motivate you to become active, help your body to absorb nutrients efficiently, remove stress which causes you to overeat, improve your bowel movements and to increase your metabolism to enable you to burn calories much faster. Acupuncture allows your body to produce endorphins that help you control your food cravings without making your body unhealthy. These are the same endorphins that are released whenever you eat “comfort foods.” With acupuncture you get so many benefits with just a few applications of needles to your body. There is no other treatment, conventional or otherwise that acts and treats you the way acupuncture does.
But acupuncture will only get you so far in your quest to realize your desired weight without you changing the lifestyle and diet that caused you to be overweight in the first place. Start being active and do some light exercises daily and eat highly nutritious food that make you satiated with just a few intakes.
