Obesity is an issue affecting around one in four people in the UK. The Department of Health and the NHS have been warning about the negative impact obesity can have on a person’s health and wellbeing. The Department of Heath has also recently warned that obesity has overtaken smoking as the leading cause of some cancers, emphasising the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet coupled with an active lifestyle.
Being overweight can also have an impact on someone’s self-esteem and trigger a host of related health issues. Even so, it can be very difficult to lose weight with many people asking themselves ‘why is it hard to lose weight’. There are multiple factors which could make it harder for people to lose weight, but usually it is because changing habits is a very difficult task as well as resisting comfort eating.
