People who are so overweight, that they are considered to be obese, often find the simplest of daily tasks a challenge to complete; being morbidly obese often results in mental and physical health issues. Statistics show that even though more than 34% of Americans are obese, the average American citizen continues to exist on a diet of high-calorie, high-cholesterol, super-sized meals from a combination of fast food outlets.
The majority of people who battle with obesity have been overweight for most of their lives. They tend to have physical ailments, such as heart disease, hip, and knee problems, as well as battling with mental health issues such as low self-esteem, depression, and are generally unhappy with themselves. As a result, they end up introverted, staying at home, and hiding away from life, instead of being well-adjusted, confident and independent, out-going people.
