📜 History of National Obesity Awareness Week

Obesity is a severe problem not only in the United Kingdom but across the world. We aren’t moving as much as we once did. We make matters worse by eating fast food or takeout. Furthermore, we expose our dogs to unhealthy lifestyles. Obesity affects more than 75% of pets in the United Kingdom.

Obesity costs you, both physically and metaphorically. Often, the harm done to one’s health and well-being is irreversible. Obesity-related diseases such as heart disease and diabetes cost taxpayers a staggering £6 billion per year. Compared to that, the amount spent on the courts, fire departments, and police is a lot higher.

In the United Kingdom, National Obesity Awareness Week urges individuals to “turn obesity around.” It’s Obesity Awareness Week, a time to raise awareness about the dangers of obesity in people’s lives and in society as a whole. The authorities give tools and advice on how individuals might change their ways of living. Small improvements, such as making healthier meals, exercising more frequently, and getting enough sleep each night, can lead to big changes. Unplugging from electronics is also really beneficial. Instead of vegetating in front of a screen, spend time outside. Also, remember to turn off any electrical gadgets before going to bed.
