Why Lose Weight?

1) Heart Carrying around excess weight can actually be bad for your heart health. Not only does it place strain on the heart, it also adds to your cholesterol and messes with your blood pressure, leading to a less-than-desirable situation. 2) Joints Your joints are the part of the body that help you to move around, walk, lift items—really anything that requires you to bend part of your body. The more weight you have, the heavier the pressure is on your joints, which can cause them to wear down over time. 3) Brain Believe it or not, being overweight can actually lead to brain-performance-related issues later in life. Obese people are actually 260% more likely to develop dementia, so head to the gym, and work out your body—it may just keep your brain sharp as well.]]>
