I am so excited kids are supporting Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. It is great to see teenagers stand up and say “enough is enough!” when it comes to the processed foods that is being served in school cafeterias across the country. For over 10 years in my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss offices of  Slender For Life™ I have talked at length about the preventable and unnecessary epidemic of childhood obesity. With hypnosis for weight loss, you can change your behavior and lose weight. Being overweight or obese increases your chance of a stroke. Is the convenience of processed food really worth the increased risk of a stroke?

Being Overweight Ups Stroke Risk
In a Monday, April 5, 2010, Reuters Health article, Excess weight increases stroke risk, a new study including nearly 2.3 million people confirms. And the heavier a person is, the greater their risk.

“Being obese (but indeed even just overweight) puts an individual at significantly higher risk of ischemic stroke, with a serious possibility of permanent disability and reduced life expectancy,” Dr. Pasquale Strazzullo of Frederico II University of Naples Medical School in Naples, Italy, one of the study’s authors, told Reuters Health.

People who were overweight were 22 percent more likely to suffer an ischemic stroke than normal weight people, while the risk for obese people was 64 percent higher, the researchers found. Hemorrhagic stroke risk wasn’t higher for overweight people, but it was 24 percent higher for obese people. Read Being Overweight Ups Stroke Risk.

The risks of obesity are real and we must stop the epidemic of childhood obesity. My book, Becoming Slender For Life and its hypnosis CD set support you in your journey losing weight and keeping it off.

Urge Congress to Support the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010 and help fight childhood obesity. You can now watch the previous episodes of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on Hulu.
