MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS IN MACON
Obesity is a metabolic disorder that is genetically inherited. Obesity is manifest with two prominent features that distinguish those who are prone toward obesity from those who are not prone to obesity. The features are stress eating and food addiction. A tendency toward excessive eating during periods of stress is typical for those who have the genetic predisposition toward obesity. It is common for those who are stress eaters to recognize that they are eating when they are not hungry. Additionally, those who struggle with obesity have an element of food addiction. Food addiction results in indulging with comfort foods that satisfy an impulse again which is driven both by stress and pure addiction to certain foods.
