How do I know if I need to lose weight?
More than two out of every three adults in the United States are overweight or obese, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. You may be among this group if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or more.
If you don’t have access to a scale, measuring your waist size is an excellent way to find out if you’re overweight or obese. Women with a waist size greater than 35 inches and men with a waist size greater than 40 inches are at higher risk of developing medical conditions related to obesity, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
What are the benefits of weight loss?
If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can offer numerous benefits, including more energy, enhanced appearance, and a greater sense of self-confidence. More importantly, it can save your life.
Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing the following health problems:
- Metabolic syndrome
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Sleep apnea
- Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
- Gallbladder diseases
- Kidney disease
- Certain cancers
Losing as little as 5-10% of your body weight lowers your chances of developing these potentially dangerous health conditions.
