Joint Pain Relief
Living at a weight that is appropriate for your frame allows your joints to function properly. They aren’t strained under the additional weight and can move in fluid motions that don’t cause undue stress or wear and tear.
When you carry around more weight than your frame is intended to, it puts additional strain on your joints. Your joints, connective tissue, and cartilage are all designed to handle an appropriate amount of stress. Additional weight causes compression and accelerates the wearing of joints and the early onset of chronic pain and osteoarthritis.
Weight loss is usually attributed to an improved healthy diet and consistent exercise, both of which are incredible for your heart and cardiac health. Essential vitamins and nutrients as well as oxygenated blood are able to navigate your now, cleared up arteries with ease. This means your heart doesn’t have to work as hard to keep up with demand.
Being overweight is usually attributed to sedentary lifestyle choices and poor diet. Both of these put you at incredibly high risk for cardiac disease. Unhealthy foods usually cause plaque build up in your arteries as which puts additional stress on the heart and affects your circulatory system. Your heart needs to work that much harder to pump blood through your system.
Normal breathing and oxygenation is an incredible benefit attributed to weight loss. When you carry less weight across your chest, your chest is able to expand and retract with significantly less effort, making breathing seem effortless.
If obesity is allowed to progress to dangerous levels, it can actually influence your breathing capabilities. The additional weight can make breathing laborious and ‘heavy’. Paired with poor cardiac health, simple tasks will leave you out of breath as your body struggles to circulate the oxygenated blood necessary for proper function.
Patients in weight loss programs speak of the incredible boost in energy they feel as the weight starts to fall off. This is due to the compounding effect that weight loss has. Increased metabolic paired with relieving the burden on your internal systems leaves you feeling invigorated and with energy you haven’t experience in a long time!
Carrying around an additional 50-75lbs can be exhausting. Your body has to work exceptionally harder to move and allow circulation. The result is that you are left exhausted and don’t have the energy to perform daily tasks or engage in any physical activities. This can be very difficult to overcome as you attempt to lose weight.
Chronic Disease Prevention
Living at a healthy weight means that your body is able to function as intended. Your joints and internal systems aren’t being constantly burdened and are healthy. Losing weight removes additional stress from your body and enables it to fight off disease much more effectively
Being overweight or obese can put you at very high risk of developing a long list of dangerous chronic conditions. Conditions like diabetes, heart disease, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, as well as respiratory and circulatory conditions.
