Third Of UK ‘Misjudge’ Health When It Comes To Weight

Tags : 

Are you looking for weight loss advice from the best private doctor Hertfordshire has to offer? Well seeking help is the first step to a new, healthier you, but unfortunately there are a growing number of people who are misjudging their own weight and the effects it is having on their bodies.

The Aviva Health Check report has uncovered that 36 per cent of British people consider themselves to be healthy, when actually they’re medically considered obese – a figure that has risen by four per cent in the last year.

These people, who consider themselves healthy, are ignoring the life-threatening risks of type II diabetes and heart disease that comes with being overweight and obese.

The report also found that only eight per cent of the obese have sought help from their doctor to try and lose weight – this may be something to do with a staggering figure of 51 per cent of people considered overweight that have no interest in losing weight at all.

To battle the bulge, you need to focus on two key areas – exercise and diet. The NHS believes people should be doing 150 minutes of aerobic exercise a week in order to lose weight, however 17 per cent say they never exercise at all.

When it comes to diet, the number of people eating the unhealthiest snacks has fallen, however, many still fail to eat healthily.

This is where the doctors at the Thornhill Clinic can help – with our weight loss DNA testing, we can provide a comprehensive diet plan that’s adapted to your actual genetic make-up, boosting the efficiency of dieting in weight loss.
