Excess weight is caused by taking in more calories than are used up in physical activity and daily life - which can be very harmful to your health.
Being overweight or obese puts you at a higher risk for health problems such as:
- heart disease
- high blood pressure
- sleep apnea
- diabetes and more.
Even taking off a few pounds can provide you with cardiovascular benefits. When your weight is in a healthy range:
- Your body more effectively circulates blood
- Your fluid levels are more easily managed
- You are less likely to develop diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and other health problems.
