Compared to overweight and obese individuals, people with ideal weight and healthier lifestyles usually are more productive and self-assured. However, it isn’t all appearance and physique – an unhealthy weight and lifestyle is a problem that goes beyond skin deep. Being overweight isn’t just a big blow to your self-confidence; it increases your risk for disease and illness, too. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention stresses that obesity and overweight increases the possibility of an individual to suffer from different types of health conditions like heart diseases, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. The aforementioned illnesses are the leading causes of preventable death worldwide for years now. Heart-diseases and other metabolic disorders can easily be prevented with proper weight management which is crucial for a healthier, disease-free you!
