5. Weight loss will make you smarter!

Slimmer body, smarter brain? Very probable! A fairly recent piece of research found some indications that weight problems – including underweight, overweight, and obesity – in midlife increase the risk of dementia in one’s later years. In another study, researchers concluded weight loss can have positive effects on brain health and may play a role in the prevention of cognitive degeneration and age-related dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. Source.

6. Your skin and hair will improve

Most people who lose weight in a healthy way, such as those recommended by our dietitian in Hernando County, say that their complexion cleared up and their hair began looking healthier after dropping weight.

You are what you eat, right? Healthy eating is not only about quality over quantity, it is about feeling better, being more physically active and living longer. A healthy diet will boost your immune system, improve metabolism and decrease inflammation in the body. Weight loss is a natural side effect of a healthy lifestyle and should not be the goal itself!

7. Trimming down may decrease the risk of cancer

A 2016 study summarizing worldwide estimates of the proportion of different cancers attributable to overweight/obesity compared to other cancers found that the United States had the highest proportions of cancer attributable to overweight/obesity for colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, and postmenopausal breast cancer, compared to other countries.

Fat tissue produces excess amounts of estrogen, high levels of which have been associated with increased risks of breast, endometrial, ovarian, and some other cancers.

Moreover, obese people often have increased blood levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). (This condition, known as hyperinsulinemia or insulin resistance, precedes the development of type 2 diabetes.) High levels of insulin and IGF-1 may promote the development of colon, kidney, prostate, and endometrial cancers. Source.

8. Your perspiration will decrease

Obese individuals tend to sweat more than their slimmer counterparts. The culprit here is the fat which insulates the body and raises core temperature. Excessive sweating is also more common in people who are out of shape.

People who have lost weight say that carrying extra weight is like wearing a weighted vest in a steam room.

Excessive sweating can be a warning sign of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection, so it is good to consult with a physician before deciding what the proper diet and nutrition plan should be. Good news! We have a physician on site!
