It's that time of year again, we're all settling down after the long holidays and thinking about getting a bit fitter, eating a bit healthier, living a bit better. But the reality is seldom as easy as we hope. It would all be fine if wasn't for temptation, right?
And there is more to weight loss than shedding a few kilos and fitting into our skinny jeans, it can have a significant impact on many aspects of our overall health and general well being. Here are our top six POSITIVE side effects to think about:
1. FAT LOSS
This may seem like an obvious one from an aesthetic point of view, but extra body fat places more stress on the heart and puts us at greater risk of health concerns such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart attack. Fat loss alleviates this strain on our bodies and quickly improves our well being.
2. REDUCED CHOLESTEROL
A lower cholesterol count minimises the chance of stroke, heart attack, and peripheral artery disease. Weight loss can achieve this without the need for medicine. Do we need to say more?
3. BALANCED SUGAR LEVELS
Maintaining normal blood sugar levels is a very important part of avoiding long-term health issues, managing our weight and just feeling good. Health problems related to blood sugar imbalances, such as diabetes, are a rapidly growing concern.
4. BALANCED HORMONES
Achieving hormone balance promotes increased energy levels, better sleep, and stabilised moods, as well as improvements in overall health by reducing risk of disease.
5. REDUCED INFLAMMATION AND PAIN
Even a modest weight loss can significantly impact joint and back pain and inflammation. It will also dramatically improve symptoms of arthritis, rheumatism, alleviate breathing issues and reduce dependency on medicine.
6. IMPROVED SLEEPING
Many reported sleep problems such as sleep apnea, daytime fatigue, insomnia, and restless or interrupted sleep are linked to excess belly fat and can be greatly improved with weight loss.
