Stowelink founder and CEO Ogweno Stephen joined the global world obesity community during the 2020 global ECO ICO conference. As an advocate for people living with obesity and as a champion for better nutrition and health lifestyle, he shared his story with the world emphasizing on putting patients first when addressing obesity.
Here are a few tips from a lifetime of living with and successfully beating obesity that are key in beating obesity and living health lives besides being with obesity:
How do we beat obesity?
Admit you’ve got a problem and get help. Women tend to talk about their feelings and seek help. Men? You need to man up and tell your partner you want to make a change, or find a mate that can become your partner in health and fitness. It’s all part of the process.
2. Stop waiting
Doctors receive little to no training on nutrition and fitness – they dish out pills, not healthy diet plans. Major pharmaceutical companies love this. Stop waiting for the cure … we all know what preventative measures we can take in the gym and kitchen. They are the only cures we’ve got.
3. Build strength
A man (and woman) should have a certain level of strength. Build some strength with push-ups. All of us should able to do 20 push-ups, because more muscle means less fat.
4. Get cardio fit
Run, because you shouldn’t struggle to reach the top of the stairs. If there’s trouble, we should all be able to run for safety, and for weight loss. Running still works.
5. Invest in your health
Organic meats, leafy greens and fresh fruits may be a bit more pricey, but we must think of food as an investment in health and preventing sickness. Same goes for an investment in fitness.
Most importantly when addressing obesity in people always remember they are people first and obesity is just a condition. Its not them and they can beat it and live healthy and ultimately productive lives despite living with obesity.
