The real consequences of weight gain and obesity

All too often, Americans don't fully recognize the consequences of obesity or weight gain until it's too late.

Obesity and weight gain have been a growing problem in our society for decades, heavily influenced and impacted by Western culture and the Standard American Diet. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that more than one-third of all American adults are obese. That's 78.6 million adults at risk for a multitude of serious health complications and disease that accompany excess weight gain. Sadly however, far too many Americans don't have a full grasp on the sheer magnitude of weight-related consequences until it's too late.

But there's good news: The human body was created with God-given miraculous self-healing power. By trusting in the Lord, including following the biblical plant-based diet that He bestowed upon us, and seeking wisdom in how we eat, the body is truly capable of self-healing. The Lord is omnipresent and by trusting in Him and shunning evil, through His guidance, the body can be healed. As it was said in Proverbs 3:8, "This will bring healing to your body, and refreshment to your bones."

An increased risk
According to the CDC, in comparison to individuals of a normal, healthy weight, overweight Americans are at an increased risk of death from a variety of consequences. They also have a higher chance of having Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and coronary heart disease. These individuals are also more likely to develop certain cancers such as liver, kidney, endometrial, breast, colon and gallbladder. Even the quality of life for people living with excess weight can be negatively impacted. It's common for obese individuals to experience body pain and discomfort, sleep apnea and breathing complications, as well as mental illness such as depression and anxiety.

In today's society, the impact of the SAD diet begins from a young age and can have dangerous consequences in the long run.In today's society, the impact of the SAD diet begins from a young age and can have dangerous consequences in the long run.

Moreover, even average weight gain of just 10 to 20 pounds can heighten the risk of disease and death, especially for adults between the ages of 30 and 64 years old, according to "The Hallelujah Diet." Obesity is only just behind smoking as the second leading preventable cause of death in the country and it's easy to see how. As man has strayed farther and farther from the path of God, toward a lifestyle centered around fast food, take out, processed snacks and sugar-loaded sweets, he has lost the transformative and healing power of the natural, clean food diet based on Genesis 1:29.

Heart disease
Obesity is one of the leading risk factors for cardiovascular disease, a risk that continues to rise as an individual's body mass index does, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. One such complication is coronary heart disease, when plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries, causing them to narrow and potentially block the flow of oxygen-rich blood that needs to get to your heart. This can lead to chest pains, heart failure and even heart attack.

Similarly, when plaque builds up in your arteries it also has the potential to burst, noted the NHLBI. If an area of plaque bursts or ruptures and causes a blood clot close to the brain, it can result in a stroke. This risk is also heightened as one's body mass index rises.

When it comes to obesity and cancer, the bottom line according to "The Hallelujah Diet" is that the Western diet adopted by so many is deadly. That is because the most essential nutrients that strengthen the immune system are not a normal part of the SAD diet. Instead, 40 percent of the average Western diet is packed with animal products which lack flavonoids, antioxidants and phytochemicals - all of which protect the body and give the immune system the tools to fight heart disease and cancer.

"A raw diet promotes the body's miraculous self-healing powers."

For those combating cancer or disease, the Hallelujah Diet of 85 percent raw and 15 percent vegan cooked foods, along with juices and supplements is recommended to restore your health and boost your immune system. In fact, the team at Hallelujah Acres has spent more than two decades researching the best ways to strengthen the immune system. One of the most optimal ways is to consume the pure juice of young alfalfa and barley plants. Delivering truly powerful results, BarleyMax is one of the cornerstones of the cancer support system.

This supplement is one of the most nutritionally dense products as well as the highest quality living juice power available. For those living with these malicious cancers or heart disease, taking three servings throughout the day will get the immune system back on track to promote the body's self-healing mechanisms. It will increase energy and promote overall better health.
