LOSE WEIGHT SAFELY!
Turkey is getting less health conscious and obesity rates are rising each year. Reasons such as lack of exercise, malnutrition, smoking and alcohol consumption cause increase in obesity and methods to lose weight may result in death. The experts are strongly warning against ‘so called’ weight loss pills and methods.
Dr. Funda İfakat Tengiz, Lecturer at IUE Vocational School of Health Services, Paramedic Program, stated that obesity became a major issue in Turkey and worldwide, and that it was a social, cultural, and economic problem in addition to being a major health concern. Tengiz warned individuals to stay away from so called shock diets, 3-5 day cures, healing waters, slimming tights, belts, shoes, etc. that claim to help people lose weight.
“Don’t Jeopardize Your Health”
Turkish Statistical Institute’s 2014 data revealed that the percentage of obese individuals was 19.9%, said Dr. Tengiz and she stated the following:
“These ‘so called pills’ are great threat to human health, they even result in death. People should definitely stay away from using these substances which we don’t know anything about, where and how they are produced, their active ingredient, etc. Treating obesity requires a change in life style. People should consult doctors and dieticians for professional advice. Also maintaining an active life style with the help of a sports trainer is important. We need to adopt a life style based on regular activity and healthy eating habits. We need to learn to change our habits to fight against obesity. Turkish Statistical Institute’s data showed that, as examined by sex, females were obese with 24.5% and males with 15.3%. Women had higher obesity rates compared to men.”
