Did you know? Shedding just 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can boost your mental health and lower the risk of getting heart disease and certain forms of cancer. Apart from helping you live a longer, healthier life, weight loss can also increase your mobility and improve your mood and overall self-image. If you thought that to experience health beneﬁts you must drop a huge amount of weight, you’re wrong. What is important is to create a realisIc plan for reducing weight gradually, something that is best achieved through small, measurable goals. This is how we help clients complete their diet and exercise program successfully.
The Beneﬁts of Weight Loss
LESS RISK OF HEART DISEASE
Heart disease is occasioned by excess fat which causes chemical changes in your blood. When fat cells become enlarged, which often happens with obesity, they produce hormones that cause chronic inﬂammation. This in turn leads to the body no longer using insulin eﬃciently, resulting in higher blood sugar levels, and vulnerability to heart disease.
LOWER RISK OF CANCER
Overweight or obese people who purposely lose weight undergo body changes that reduce their risk of getting cancer. These changes may, for example, lead to lower levels of hormones that are linked to cancer risks such as insulin, estrogens, and androgens.
HIGHER SEX DRIVE
Overweight or obese people are more likely to have lower libido compared to non-obese. The reason for this is that higher levels of body fat make testosterone less available in the body to sImulate sexual desire. Likewise, men who are obese are 2.5 times more prone to suﬀer from erectIle dysfunctIon compared to their non-obese counterparts.
People suﬀering from obesity have a higher chance of experiencing insomnia or troubled sleep compared to those without weight problems. That’s because obesity alters your body’s metabolism as well as sleep-wake cycles resulting in deterioration of sleep quality. Conversely, scientiﬁc studies show that overall weight loss, especially belly fat, can improve sleep quality by as much as 20 percent.
REDUCED MORTALITY AMONG PATIENTS WITH MENTAL ILLNESSES
80% of mentally ill people are obese and have a death rate 3 times that of the overall population. Weight-loss programs can help overweight and obese people suﬀering from mental illnesses like clinical depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, lose substanial weight and live longer healthier lives.
