Why Get Healthy?
If you’ve been thinking, “Why bother losing weight and getting fit; who really cares what I look like in a swimsuit,” then consider the many other benefits that come along with weight loss and better overall nutrition:
- More Energy – Eating empty carbohydrates, such as refined sugar, causes your blood sugar to fluctuate, resulting in periods of fatigue and mood swings throughout the day. Choosing fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and lean protein will improve your mood and give you steady energy all day long.
- Better Sleep – Studies have shown that people who lose at least 5% of their body weight in a six-month period are able to sleep longer, and they experience fewer symptoms of sleep apnea. Better sleep also helps your body burn fat more efficiently, so getting enough sleep means it will be easier to keep those extra pounds off.
- Less Joint Pain – Being overweight puts a lot of pressure on your joints. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), each pound above a healthy weight also increases the risk of osteoarthritis by 10-15% in women and 5-10% in men.
- More Brain Power – Diet rich in cholesterol and saturated fat are linked to a greater risk of high cholesterol and Alzheimer’s disease, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. Adding more dark-skinned fruits and vegetables to your diet may help protect your brain cells (and help you shed excess pounds).
