Risks associated with obesity


Today's world can rightly be called the best time the world has ever experienced in general. Comfort is at a high level and most of us do not have to struggle daily for survival as our ancestors had to do not long ago. In Western civilization, there is not only enough food, but also a large surplus. However, as is often the case with positives, there are also negatives. And not just any kind, but life-threatening.

As time went by, we gradually left the responsibility for what we consume to large corporations, which are not always interested in the good of the customer, but mainly in profit. Their business model is very simple: to sell as much as possible at the lowest possible cost. Nobody wants to lose their customer, so they try to think of a reason why the customer would buy their product again and again, preferably for life. Unfortunately, the main priority for most consumers when choosing their food or drink is taste.

 And that's why manufacturers are trying to develop cheap but above all the tastiest food at any price. And what are the main ingredients that affect the taste of food? After all, sugar, salt and fat! Don't be confused, salt in the form of sodium is a vital electrolyte, sugar turns into glucose in the body and is a source of energy for the whole organism, and fat helps in the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, K, is a building block of cell membranes and affects the hormonal balance in body.

Rather, it is about in what form and in what quantity we consume these nutrients. In most foods, we can easily find mainly trans fats and high fructose corn syrup, which in combination with a lack of exercise can cause extreme damage to our health.
They not only cause classic obesity, which occurs if we take in more energy during the day than we give out, but so-called hormonal obesity, which is much more dangerous.
One of the main causes is the development of metabolic syndrome.
It is a collective name for a group of disorders in the body that are a significant risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes or stroke.
We are talking about five disorders –
increased blood pressure,
high blood sugar
excessive body fat in the waist area,
increased levels of cholesterol and triacylglycerols in the blood.

How to fight metabolic syndrome?

Regular movement and quality sleep are the basis. Of course, overeating is also the main cause of obesity and metabolic syndrome. You should also avoid foods that contain a large amount of trans fat and high-fructose corn syrup.
Our fit4you products are designed to be free of any of these substances!
We have also developed a special fit4you Slim Coffee instant coffee, which is enriched with a number of beneficial substances, such as the plant extract Metabolaid, which helps reduce the symptoms of this serious disease.

From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you good health and a beautiful, fulfilling life
