Obese People Can’t Help Eating As ‘There Is Too Much Temptation’


This statement is quite timely with the proposed government initiative that obese people will be given a voucher incentive for losing weight. With this in mind, is their ACTUALLY too much temptation? Probably, I see fast food chains popping up all over the place, alongside motorways, by gyms, everywhere! The irony is frightening. It’s a fact of life that people struggle to find time to prep food (quite often through their own fault) and therefore opt for convenience, and convenience is more often than not fast food. There is no question that temptation is high, however self- restraint is a skill that needs to be learnt, there are after all, ways and means to fill you up that won’t fill you full of calories. Whether we like it or not, two thirds of us are overweight and obese… so the minority that aren’t (according to NHS weight loss surgeon) should try to get behind those who are overweight. Whether we like that or not, obesity is as much our problem with the strain it places on the NHS, as it is theirs!
