Rock The Fat Away: Fight Overweight and Obesity

You have seen its TVC and the message clearly stated that overweight and obesity are two of the leading risk of global deaths. We, Filipinos considered eating as one of the best past time (hobby) specially during our free time. How many Filipinos are overweight and suffering from high risk diseases?

 Here's an information from Food and Nutrition Research Institute:

  • 25% Filipino adults are overweight
  • 6% are Obese
  • in 2015, we will see about 24% are overweight are men and 44% are more overweight females
  • High risk diseases: respiratory and heart problems, liver and gallbladder diseases, type 2 diabetes, and cancer
How we can protect ourselves from being overweight and obese? As we would like to improve our health, we should shed those excess fats and start a better you!

Rock The Fat Away campaign helped me a lot to understand how unsafe to use some other weightloss products available over the counter. We should be aware that we should take care of our body through regular exercise, healthy diet and taking care of ourselves.
