Two great sources about lifestyle and obesity

Recently I have come across a very interesting study about so-called lifestyle intervention and how it affects the body from an endocrinical perspective, Progesterone Receptors and Proliferation of the Endometrium in Obese Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome—A Lifestyle Intervention Study (2016), a study compiled by a team of Swedish-based researchers.

This article is technical and hinges on very field-specific terms. Since I don’t study medicine and only have a very basic understanding of endocrinolgy as a personal trainer and general audodidact, I find it a bit hard to summarize the objective, method, conclusion and discussion in this piece. For the layman, though, it appears as if lifestyle intervention, which leads to weight loss, can have very positive effects for health and well-being of women.

Secondly, I have been informed about a terrific list of statistics over obesity rates, a topic which has been addressed several times on these pages. Make sure to check out Renewbariatrics for adequate data on obesity around the world.
