Gluttony Kills!

J.K. Arcayna

 

What is gluttony? Do you know what gluttony means? It is really hard to define gluttony. Right! It is so broad. If you are thinking very cleverly about this word, and there are many persons who see that, they may think you’re crazy or find you immensely funny. In fact, you only just are bullying yourself at that manner.

Gluttony may be something new to you; something that you haven’t known or heard before. I know that, if you, the reader will think of this at first, questions like these could be easily answered. I would rather believe that some of the facts about gluttony will never be easily understood at all.

It is a strange thing how little in general people know about gluttony. Every object that comes out to our imaginations raises many different views, opinions, and passions according to their circumstances of departure. We are challenging distinct ideas about gluttony. But, what do we mean by gluttony? It is very difficult to define. A little logic is required to disturb that definition.

Defining gluttony is a very huge matter. Like a gulf, there are means that it weakens oneself to talk with an hour or more than days fasting what would you like to do. It is a kind of game that will challenge and enhance your vocabulary. A game that you can’t beat; however, the sooner you sit up straight in your seat, the sooner you will stop banging your head. Moreover, to those who already know what gluttony is, the definition is easily narrowed, and it is easily expanded to others. On the other hand, this is no merely an individual matters. Each of us has our own daily habit. It seems that we do it as our daily living. Just like eating foods, drinking water, walking along the street, smiling, and etc., but because we are discussing about gluttony, well, I will share to you then facts about it.

Too much eating and drinking will kill you; others say that, and definitely not me. Although you eat every day, you still think that you are not yet full and you eat every hour for yourself. Eating too much is not good to our health. It may cause stomach ache. One example of this situation is obesity. Obesity is the result of too much eating. Obesity is one of the major aspects in public health that is concerned on facing developed and developing countries in the whole world. Obesity is not only found in our country but to the whole world too.

Each of us might be like this. It doesn’t matter if we are fat or obese. Being obese is good but there is an opposition which states that it can reduce individual life by being 5 to 20 years.

I think, that means rising many cases about obesity, and will have devastating effects on the quality of life and life expectancy in the long run. Others say that obesity is not problems to particular groups in the society since each of our social demographic division are affected too.

There are lots of factors that could lead to obesity. It might be a result from interaction of different factors which can be related to genetics, cultures, physical activities, emotions, genders, age, diet, and medical problems too.

In terms of emotion, well, this kind of factors makes people eat more and become obese. There are a lot of significant memories that are attached to food even after weight loss.

In psychological research, some psychologists are reasoning why each of us, despite understanding the grave consequences that accompany obesity, continue to overindulge while engaging in less physical exercise. In this regard, researchers like me believe that psychological aspects of obesity also related to brain disorder. Well, in fact, most people are not able to escape the cycles to go back over eating again.

Yeah, very dramatic indeed. But it depends as to how one controls himself/herself in eating such. It's a matter of choice for me as to whether you'll eat a lot or you'll eat less. Because i know there's a consequence in it.
It really takes a lifestyle change to keep it off (if somebody wants it to).
