'The UK doctors have called for a team of specialists to help the country deal with the soaring obesity crisis costing the country£5 billion a year, an issue the government has failed to tackle. A report by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) says not enough is being done to tackle the obesity epidemic in the UK, which is costing £5 billion each year.

This figure is expected to rise alongside the number of obese Britons.Academic vice-president of the RCP Professor John Wass said, "Britain is getting bigger and whilst we try to prevent the increase in obesity, we must also prepare the NHS [National Health Service] for the influx of patients presenting with severe complex obesity."'

Very inspiring transformations to a healthy life!
It's funny, honest, emotional and should be shown in every school instead of "holy" lies and fairytales.

Obesity Relates to Socioeconomic Status.

People with a lower income will eat less healthy and
usually have no money to buy a membership for a sports club
for themselfs or their children.

So what would the solution be ?

Get rid of the filthy rich scum that assumes an air of utmost superiority,
washes the brains of the masses, sells them poison as food/drink
and creates fiat money on end.

Edinburgh seems to have a large Polish population all of a sudden, still speaking polski on the streets, and they all seem fit. The lower earners and especially professional benefit hunting locals seem to have eaten a lot of deep fried Mars bars though. meanwhile the upper middle class ride £2000 bikes up and down the cobbles...

I tend to agree with the following claims...
Can lack of sleep make you fat? A new paper which reviews the evidence from sleep restriction studies reveals that inadequate sleep is linked to obesity. The research, published in a special issue of the The American Journal of Human Biology, explores how lack of sleep can impact appetite regulation, impair glucose metabolism and increase blood pressure.

"Obesity develops when energy intake is greater than expenditure. Diet and physical activity play an important part in this, but an additional factor may be inadequate sleep," said Dr Kristen Knutson, from the University of Chicago. "A review of the evidence shows how short or poor quality sleep is linked to increased risk of obesity by de-regulating appetite, leading to increased energy consumption."

Dr Knutson accumulated evidence from experimental and observational studies of sleep. Observational studies revealed cross-sectional associations between getting fewer than six hours sleep and increased body mass index (BMI) or obesity.

The studies revealed how signals from the brain which control appetite regulation are impacted by experimental sleep restriction. Inadequate sleep impacts secretion of the signal hormones ghrelin, which increases appetite, and leptin, which indicates when the body is satiated. This can lead to increased food intake without the compensating energy expenditure.

"In the United States 18% of adults are estimated to get less than 6 hours of sleep, which equates to 53 million short sleepers who may be at risk of associated obesity," said Knutson. "Poor sleeping patterns are not random and it is important to consider the social, cultural and environmental factors which can cause inadequate sleep so at-risk groups can be identified."

The evidence suggests the association between inadequate sleep and higher BMI is stronger in children and adolescents. It also shows that sleep deficiency in lower socioeconomic groups may result in greater associated obesity risks.

AND...
The Relationship Between Obesity and Exposure to Light at Night: Cross-Sectional Analyses of Over 100,000 Women in the Breakthrough Generations Study

There has been a worldwide epidemic of obesity in recent decades. In animal studies, there is convincing evidence that light exposure causes weight gain, even when calorie intake and physical activity are held constant. Disruption of sleep and circadian rhythms by exposure to light at night (LAN) might be one mechanism contributing to the rise in obesity, but it has not been well-investigated in humans. Using multinomial logistic regression, we examined the association between exposure to LAN and obesity in questionnaire data from over 100,000 women in the Breakthrough Generations Study, a cohort study of women aged 16 years or older who were living in the United Kingdom and recruited during 2003–2012. The odds of obesity, measured using body mass index, waist:hip ratio, waist:height ratio, and waist circumference, increased with increasing levels of LAN exposure (P < 0.001), even after adjustment for potential confounders such as sleep duration, alcohol intake, physical activity, and current smoking. We found a significant association between LAN exposure and obesity which was not explained by potential confounders we could measure.

"Sleeping in a room with too much light has been linked to an increased risk of piling on the pounds"

The news comes from a study that assessed self-reported sleeping habits and body weight measurements in a group of women at a single point in time.

The researchers did find a significant link between light levels in women's rooms at night and their risk of being overweight and obese.

The researchers speculated that melatonin may play a role in underpinning this link. Melatonin is a hormone whose production is inhibited by exposure to light and is thought to play a role in metabolism.

Sleeping in a darkened room is recommended as it helps promote better and more refreshing sleep patterns.

The interesting one for me is not the lack of sleep thing, but that light levels in the sleeping area affect weight.

Personally ive found this to be true, all else being equal. I think its more difficult to sleep deeply, even if people arent so aware of it.. when there are increased light levels at night. It then throws the body off in ways that most people arent aware of.

The demands of modern society dont leave much room for catching up on sleep when falling behind either which is a seperate issue... but also leads to lardiness imo.

Has anyone besides me noticed the correlation between the increasing obesity problem and the anti-smoking campaign?

Google "does smoking reduce appetite"

:hmm:
Getting "the last word" is not the same thing as winning the argument. It may just mean that the other fellow has decided that your ignorance is to entrenched for you to learn.

Secret Eaters ... the show that brings on everyday people who believe they eat 2000 calories a day and lead a healthy lifestyle ... and wonder why they're putting on 2 stone a year.

... but are exposed as consuming 6000 calories a day through eating huge portions snacking on chocolate and cakes eating copious takeaways and drinking a pub dry on a weekly basis :hahano:
