Are you happy with you figure now? If yes, then I can congratulate you and refer you to a minority of those, who are not concerned with their weight. But actually you should go on with your diet even if you are absolutely satisfied with your shaped figure. If you have excess pounds, you will need to shed them for health-related reasons irrespective how you feel about your body. You need to consider weight loss for numerous reasons, and here in this article we are going to discuss these reasons.
Being fat, first of all poses a high risk to your body as it can result in many various diseases. More likely, the greatest medical risk that you will be subjected to is cardiovascular disease and this can end up with a heart attack. If you have a cardiovascular disease your heart has to work harder to push blood around your body so your heart gets stressed and exhausted. When you are obese, you have a much wider system of blood vessels. They are getting stretched out and this in its turn raises peripheral resistance. Also, obese people have high level of cholesterol which is left on the inside walls of your arteries, again raising peripheral resistance. As a result of all that is that you heart has to work harder.
With cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure the risk of having a stroke is increased. If you have had a stroke, it means that a part of your brain does not get enough oxygen. With a high level of cholesterol you are posed at a high risk for stroke because of fatty deposits on the walls of your arteries. Basically, a part of this plaque can be broken and if it is lodged in a brain artery, it will cause a stroke. If it is set in a secondary artery, heart attack will be as a result.
If you want to prevent this, you should consider weight loss for yourself.
If a woman wants to get pregnant, then being fat can cause some problems. Overweight women have a changed hormone balance. This hormone imbalance in some cases, can serve to obstruct the ability to ovulate and carry a child in the end. If you become pregnant, obesity can cause miscarriage, pregnancy induced hypertension, gestational diabetes and a whole list of other bad consequences.
Apart from the health-related risks involved, your every day life can be influenced by being overweight. It will be difficult for you to find clothes that are suitable for you, or if you managed to find the right clothes for you, it will be expensive. First of all, the clothing producer will need to use more material and time. In addition shopping looking for clothes, you can face other difficulties. Many public transportation and airlines are not very comfortable for overweight people. So, to make a conclusion, even if you are happy with your current weight, a healthy weight loss diet is a reasonable and healthy option for you.
