Describing body composition and the risks associated with excess body fat, I have learned that people that are obese have an overall mortality rate twice that of people who is non-obese. Mostly, they are more than three times as likely to develop diabetes. Obesity is associated with unhealthy cholesterol levels and impaired heart function. This is estimated that if all Americans had a healthy body composition, the incidence of coronary heart disease would drop by 25%. There are many other health risks associated with obesity includes hypertension, different types of cancer, impaired immune function, gallbladder problems, kidney diseases, and bone and joint disorders. My current eating habits are getting better as far as having to make big changes. In the morning I will have a bowl of cereal that has a lot of fiber or I will eat a bagel with light cream cheese. Lunch and dinner I will make sure that I watch my calories and eat a great portion of vegetables, and drink plenty of water. On the weekends I have a good breakfast with turkey bacon, eggs, toast and some milk or orange juice. I eat a great amount of fruits and vegetables, and also I get in as much protein as possible with different types of meats. Lately, peanuts and peanut butter has been a good source of protein for me. I tend to eat many fruits and vegetables in my daily eating habits and this helps dramatically with my diet and eating fruits and vegetables makes you feel very healthy and energetic.
