The Benefits of Losing Weight

The Benefits of Losing Weight

Keep Heart Disease at Bay​

Maintaining a healthy weight helps your health enormously. By being in a healthy weight range you reduce your risk of developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. All of which can contribute towards heart disease.

Even if you already have one of the aforementioned conditions, keeping yourself at a healthy weight will help stave off the effects. Your heart works tirelessly around the clock to keep you going. So why not do your bit to make things a little easier for it?

Increase Your Confidence​

Chances are if you think you’re carrying too much weight, you’ll worry others will judge you. It’s no surprise that being overweight can make you self-conscious.

Do you avoid certain things because you’re worried about how you’ll look? If you feel like hiding away because of your weight, think of how much freer you’d feel without that burden.

Why miss out on things you want to do? It might be hard work at first, but after a while, you’ll have a spring in your step.

Go Easier on your Joints​

The heavier you are, the more stress you put on your joints. Due to changes in connective tissue and cartilage, your joints weaken as you age anyway. If you’re overweight, you’ll only add to their degradation.

By keeping yourself in a healthy weight range, you’ll keep your joints in better condition for longer. Research suggests that losing weight could actually help stop the development of arthritis.
So why not lose a little now, to make sure you can move more easily in later life?

You’ll Live Longer​

You might have guessed this, but losing weight can increase your lifespan. Being more resistant to heart disease, arthritis and other risks that come with age you’ll add years.

According to a study funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research, obesity can reduce life expectancy by 8 years. In addition to that it may reduce the number of years of ‘healthy life’ by up to 19 years.

So if you’re obese, you could stand to live almost a quarter of your life in poor quality. If you put in some hard work now, you’ll reap the rewards later on.

Improve Your Immune System​

Your immune system is made up of many parts that work constantly to protect you from illness. Because so many different things are involved in keeping your immune system running properly it can be a bit of a delicate balance.

Obesity can easily tip this balance. Scientists have found that excess fat in the body leads to the production of pro-inflammatory immune cells. This type of immune cell actually acts to make diseases worse.

By losing weight, you’ll limit the production of these cells and restore order to your immune system. So you’ll feel better in general and recover from illness more quickly.

Wear Whatever you Want!​

If you’re going to live longer and feel better, you’ll have more opportunity to strut your stuff. And if you lose weight, not only will you feel confident enough to wear what you want, but you’ll fit in whatever you want, too.
