“’Being overweight or obese is associated with an increased risk for the development of a multitude of diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and more,” says David Katz, MD, MPH, and Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center & of the Yale Preventive Medicine Center.

This is the start of disadvantages that overweight people face that pertain to health alone.

There are various other social and lifestyle factors that keep us competitive in our daily lives that are affected when one is overweight.


Here are a few of them.

Lack of Confidence

Overweight and obese people tend to lose their confidence being mocked at. Moreover, the mirror is the best tool for judging ourselves and over-weight people tend to lose all the confidence, first thing in the morning, while going to brush your teeth, unless you are the Queen of Rap music like Queen Latifah. Many celebrities endorse curves but encourage healthy and fit living. Stay fit ensures confidence.

Lack of Popularity

Whether, one is trying to gain the attention of people around them that includes peers or colleagues or simply competitors in any sphere in life, human nature tends to lend an ear faster to the person who appears healthier and leaner. True, all that glitters is not gold, but a person is not given the chance to proof oneself due to the lack fitness and the fact that the person is uninterested in self care.


Obese and overweight people are more prone to depression very easily. Sometimes the lack social attention and confidence leads people to permanent depression. But with options like a 45- minute workout at a boot camp in Sydney with a personal trainer could help people to gain that confidence back and fight depression.

Over-expenditure on Junk Food

When people have a smaller appetite, people tend to save money by not buying junk food to fill their mental appetite. Boot camp Coogee and Boot Camp in Sydney encourage a well-balanced diet that is not heavy on people’s pocket and also helps to retain Happiness after losing a good amount of weight.

Lack of Sexual Drive

There are numerous surveys and research conducted by various universities and institutions that emphasize on the fact that a person who is over-weight is trends to be dissatisfied with their sex lives. Working out and a healthier living ensures a better sex drive and a reason lesser for broken relationships.

So, when people are overweight or obese, too many aspects of their lives are affected leaving them low and not being able to perform their best. Taking aid of a social health gathering like the Boot Camp in Coogee or in Sydney will ensure that one is able to perform in every sphere in life.
