Thinking About the Hidden Cost of Obesity

This is an area where obese individuals feel a bit of an economic shock (or maybe, a lot) more than those with a healthier body.

  • Occupational Problems - Well, recruiters always list qualifications or experience as a prerequisite, but only someone who is actually rejected for being overweight can tell you how it hurts. They may not tell you that weight loss is a problem but studies, and personal experience stories, show that weight gain can be a hindrance in getting a new job.

  • Increased Medical Expenses - Obesity brings many medical problems such as hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and more. Along with medical fees and expenses related to medicine, there are diagnostic tests, hospital visits, and more that all save you money. Also, obesity can cause you to see a few different doctors — an orthopedic surgeon for a joint problem, a cardiologist for a heart problem, a gastroenterologist for a digestive problem — in addition to your dietitian.

    Chances are, the criminal has no medical insurance. Why should others be punished so harshly?

  • Fitness Equipment / Gym Fees - It's not that the guys get a better discount on this, but you have to agree that they have a choice. Who doesn't like to run for half an hour at a neighborhood park every morning instead of buying a big treadmill? But obesity is sometimes a shame for working in public. In addition, buying fitness equipment gives you the flexibility to exercise when you want to — whether it's snow outside or the sun has decided to teach us some lessons because it's not good for nature. Membership in the gym, fitness club, can also be stressful in your pocket.

  • Difficult Food Choices - The more limited you are in your diet, the more expensive it may be. Fresh fruit juices are higher than cola and healthy sandwiches that pack good nutrients may be more expensive than those filled with cheese. Diet foods, diet cola, and so on. Unhealthy foods will be cheaper and easier to obtain than healthy ones and if you need to invest in everything that states 'DIET,' I'm sure your pocket is a burden. And if you're stuck on diet pills, ingredients, or ingredients, your budget may be difficult to control.

  • Increased Personal Spending - Moderate obesity may not affect your personal budget too much, but as you go beyond that category, you will find your jeans, jackets and clothing choices become smaller and your bills bigger.

The annual cost of obese individuals is about $ 1500 higher than their counterparts whose main reason behind these expenses is prescription drugs, according to a report published in the online edition of Health Affairs.

The cost of obesity may be too much for some pockets to endure, but there are ways you can avoid this extra expense - just start living healthy!
