Benefits of Weight Loss
Love how you look after weight loss! Losing weight is not all about looking good or being sexier, even if that glance in the mirror gets you thinking about losing! The biggest benefits of weight loss go beyond physical appearances.
Benefits of weight loss: Avoid Type 2 Diabetes
Being obese puts a person at risk for type 2 diabetes, a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. Your pancreas cannot create the amount of insulin needed to work with your blood glucose level.
Maintain a healthier heart
You might experience health benefits from losing as few as 10 pounds. Even a small weight loss can help manage or prevent high blood pressure in many overweight people (those with a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or greater). Being overweight puts extra strain on your heart, increasing the risk for developing high blood pressure and damage to your blood vessels that can lead to serious health threats.
Improve your sleep, lose weight
Sleeping poorly or not enough slows your metabolism, leaving more un-expended energy to be stored as fat. Poor sleep can trigger the body to make more insulin and cortisol, which in turn prompts your body to store energy as fat. Poor sleep increases appetite by changing levels of hormones that regulate hunger and feelings of fullness. Be careful not to oversleep; too much sleep can throw your body’s bio clock completely off course. Seven to nine hours a night is critical stay in sync.
