Did you know that more and more of us are getting obsessed with our weights, in the twenty first century? That is because the demands of society and the dictates of fashion have deemed it necessary for us to be as thin as telegraph poles in order to be considered attractive.
This sort of obsession has appeared only in the twentieth century, after the First World War, when there was a dearth of food to eat, and half of the world was starving. It was then that the androgynous look was born, especially in matters of fashion, and people who were totally skeletal in form and figure were considered to be cool, hep, and “with it.”
Time has gone by, the food availability situation has changed but still the notion that you need to be thin and slim with zero fat is still persisting in the mind, heart, body and soul of nearly everybody out there, who wants to be considered attractive, good-looking and desirable.
Let me give you an example. Pick up any stupid soppy romantic fiction novel out there. Look at the hero. He is musclebound with zero fat. Look at the heroine – she is slim, thin, and possibly bony. Fiction writers want us to believe that these are the only sort of people, who can be attractive to each other, and this is the subconscious notion being fed in, into us, through the media, the books we read, and any other publications out there.
This book is going to tell you all about weight watching, getting obsessed about your weight, weight charts, and everything else you need to know all about proper weight.
We know that being overweight is bad for health, because that can lead to plenty of diseases, especially cardiac problems. On the other hand, starvation is also going to lead to even more diseases, because you are now going to be suffering from malnutrition. So this book is going to tell you how to get rid of that weight watching obsession and stop being a weighing scales addict.
Uncontrolled eating habits during childhood itself can lead to weight problems as an adult.
