In paragraph nine “Don’t Eat the Flan”, Critser mentioned that “Telling people to not eat too much food is counterproductive. Worse, it leads to ‘stigmatization’, which can lead to eating disorders, low self-esteem, and bad body image. Though the consequences of being overweight, numerous and well documented, are dangerous, little if any evidence supports the notion that it is dangerous to stigmatize unhealthy behavior.” In the physical, being overweight will cause many kinds of disease, such as endocrine disorders, diabetes, and heart disease. While along a search says that the top three causes of death in the United State are currently cerebrovascular disease, cancer, and heart disease; obesity seems push us closer to death. It is dangerous, even people have been helped out of the obesity; the obesity will leave traces on their body.
Unit 4222-366 (DEM 302) Outcome 1 1. Describe how cognitive, functional and emotional changes associated with dementia can affect eating, drinking and nutrition. Firstly I will look at cognitive in reference to eating, drinking and nutrition. Some people with dementia can suffer from clinical depression and this would be a cognitive change, as an affect of depression the appetite of an individual will be affected and this may lead to someone having a small or no appetite and under eating this may lead to malnutrition and dehydration, or someone having an increase appetite which will cause over eating and may lead to someone gaining weight or becoming obese which carries many health conditions.

Too much fat in a person’s diet can also cause disease when over consumed. Too many carbohydrates can lead to obesity and an increase in calories. Just as much as too many macronutrients is not good for a person too little has its effects too. If a person continually eats too little protein he or she can become susceptible to disease, it can cause a person to develop anemia, dry skin can develop and in women their bones can become brittle.
