Benefits of Weight Training in Today’s Society Today’s society and possibly always people have had an obsession with body image. Ironically the American population is in an epidemic due to obesity rates and poor health related to diet and exercise. One simple solution to this problem along with proper diet and exercise is resistance or weight training. Not only is this an answer to our obesity problem, it also benefits our society in a voluminous number of ways. In an unfeasible attempt I will try to cover the extraordinary number of benefits of weight training within this paper.
Our genetic makeup affects an extensive range of chemical functions in our body and may affect your weight in various ways including your metabolism, hormones and body fat disposition. While there is widespread acceptance that hereditary factors might predispose to human obesity, it is frequently assumed that such factors would influence metabolic rate or the selective partitioning of excess calories into fat. However, it is notable that, thus far, all monogenic defects causing human obesity actually disrupt hypothalamic pathways and have a profound effect on satiety and food intake. To conclude, the evidence we have to date suggests that the major impact of genes on human obesity is just as likely (or perhaps more likely) to directly impact on hunger, satiety and food intake rather than metabolic rate or nutrient partitioning. At the risk of oversimplification, it seems that from an aetiological/genetic standpoint, human obesity appears less a metabolic than a neuro-behavioural disease.
What do most people imagine when they hear the word “obese”? Some may simply picture it as being chubby or fat. However, being obese actually means being so overweight that it can endanger one’s health. In fact, obesity was declared an epidemic for the past decade.

Velychko 1 How We Eat Overeating habits that people have can cause health problems. Obesity can be a medical or a psychological problem and it’s one of the major problems that people have. People can have these habits of overeating because of many reasons. Both readings, “The Wage of Sin” by Francine Prose and “In Gorging, Truth”, by Jason Fagone argue about reasons of overeating. People are obese because of society that surrounds them.
However, confronting obesity and lowering the rates now will be a more costly effective movement for the future. Nowadays obesity in the United States carries the hefty price tag of 147 billion dollars per year in direct medical costs, just over ten percent of all medical spending, experts report (Jamporis). The financial and health costs of obesity have only been rising over recent years, and there is no way they will begin decreasing if there is not any plan put into effect. The health risks are obviously a huge concern for the public health field, but the financial costs are even more concerning for the economy. With the United States in such a deep debt, costs derived from obesity are unnecessary and should not have to be dealt with.
Abstract Background: Obesity is a worldwide disease, affecting both developed and developing countries .Excessive weight loss following bariatric surgery may result in an excess of lax, overstretched skin mainly in the abdomen in the form of abdominal skin overhang causing physical discomfort and may negatively affect body image' perception and bio-psycho-social well-being of the patients. Objectives: The study was conducted to examine the effect of abdominoplasty following bariatric surgery on the bio-psycho-social well-being and satisfaction of the patients. Methods: Body image perception and patient satisfaction of a sample of 52 obese patients subjected to abdominoplasty following bariatric surgery (20 laparoscopic gastric plications and 32 laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) were measured by the Obesity Psychological State and Satisfaction Questionnaires. The mean age of participants was 39-year old (range 19-55 year). Results:
