Lose weight and live longer!

According to a recent report from the U.S. Surgeon General, obese individuals have a 50 to 100 percent greater risk of premature death from all causes than individuals without excess weight. An estimated 300,000 deaths are attributed to obesity in the United States each year.

Controlling your weight may extend your life span. Several clinical studies have found that people who were lean lived significantly longer than those who were extremely overweight. This is no surprise, considering the effects that excess weight has on your risk of developing chronic disease.

It may be comforting to know that even small losses can result in great health rewards. If you are overweight, losing even 5 to 10 percent of that excess can dramatically improve your health—lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol level and blood sugar. Plus, you will have more energy and feel motivated to continue with your program. Discover how weight loss for women can put your health on the right track.
