Weight Loss

Losing just 5% of body weight (10# for a 200# person) can reverse insulin resistance and reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, prevent joint damage, and more. An extra 10 pounds of body weight can add 40 pounds of pressure to your knees and other lower body joints. Extra body fat can also cause inflammation and damage tissue around your joints. If you lose weight and keep it off, you’re much less likely to get arthritis later in life. Exercise and losing body fat can get your HDL cholesterol into the ideal range, above 60 mg/dl, which lowers your odds of having heart disease. The “best way” to lose weight is not the same for everyone; respond depends upon your stress levels, hormone balance, proper nutrition, your other health issues and medications you may be taking.
