Published: 2 years ago
Obesity has been a one of the major health problems according to the Center of Disease Control, and more than 40% of the US population are obese. The said health problem has been linked to a lot of serious health issues such as diabetes, heart diseases, stroke, and many more. However, there are lots of reasons why a person wants to lose weight. It can be the medical and lifestyle benefits, the improvement of quality of relationship, or the build-up of self-confidence.
Let’s tackle the benefits of losing weight under three categories.
The first category is health benefits. You do not need to lose a significant amount of weight just to achieve these health benefits. As a matter of fact, some studies show that even a modest 5- 10% of your total body weight will produce the following health benefits.
- Improved cholesterol and sugar levels
- Decreased risk for diabetes, stroke, heart diseases, and certain cancers Lowered blood pressure
- Reduced back pain
- Decreased joint pain
- Decreased risk or improvement in osteoarthritis and sleep apnea.
Aside from the medical or health benefits, you may also experience an improved lifestyle thru weight loss. These lifestyle benefits are the following:
- Improved energy, vitality, mood and body image Decreased stress
- Better sleep
- More active social life
- Greater confidence
Interestingly, there are also little-known or unexpected benefits of losing weight.
Moreover, you will also have an improved memory. According to the study of Pettersson (2013), overweight women have improved memory after losing weight by dieting because the brain becomes more active while storing new memories and therefore needs fewer brain resources to recollect stored information.
With all the aforementioned benefits of weight loss, are you ready to take a step in improving your life or you are not convinced yet?
