Boring TV Shows Might Increase the Risk of Obesity

tedious

According to a new Swedish study, boring TV shows seem to increase the risk of obesity. In the study, a “boring” program (an art lecture on Swedish Television) led to more snacking than a fun program.

TheLocal: Tedious TV can lead to obesity: Swedish study

Personally, I think boring art shows on TV may be less of a problem in the long run, as they reduce the risk of getting stuck in front of the screen. Addictive TV shows that don’t contribute anything positive in your life are worse.

There are, of course, a couple of highly efficient solutions to the problem of snacking on candy in front of the TV:

  1. Don’t watch TV passively – do something else that you enjoy more. If you want to become really smart, watch TED.com instead.
  2. Avoid buying unhealthful snacks – so that you avoid being tempted.

Do you have any suggestions for what to eat while watching TV and what do you like most to watch when you watch TV?

Personally, I recommend nuts and True Detective. Continue Reading →

Number of Weight-Loss Surgeries Continues to Decline in Sweden!

midja

The trend of an increasing number of weight-loss surgeries in Sweden (where I live) has now definitely been broken. For the second year in a row, fewer and fewer people have undergone this type of surgery.

Those responsible for weight-loss surgeries want to make the claim that the decline in weight-loss surgeries is because other, more urgent, types of surgery are given higher priority. But perhaps the real reason is different?

Perhaps more and more people are beginning to question the health benefits of such mass and indiscriminate surgery. There is no disease where the surgeons operate. Healthy organs are cut out. Healthy stomachs and healthy intestines are surgically removed with disconcerting routine.

Solutions this extreme can’t be necessary for more than a small minority. There must be more natural solutions for most people.

Weight-loss surgery is the ultimate proof of how the health-care system has failed miserably to deal with the obesity problem – a panic button. It’s not a long-term solution and perhaps more and more are starting to understand this. If this is the case the decrease is good news! Continue Reading →
