January is a good time to take stock of the changes you want to live a healthier life. Many people kickstart the new year by setting weight-loss goals to look and feel better. Smart weight loss occurs steadily by making little but realistic alterations to your diet (and waistline!). For example, adults who are between 19 and 64 can safely perform 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise.
Weight Loss Health Benefits
If you are overweight or obese, just losing a small amount of weight can still give you big benefits for your overall health. Even a 5 to 10 percent decrease in your weight can give you long-lasting health benefits! Losing weight can help you with the following:
-Lower risk of diabetes
-Reduce blood pressure levels
-Lessen cholesterol levels
-Lower risk for heart disease
-Lessen the risk of some kinds of cancers
-Lessen joint pain
-Lower risk of stroke
-Lessen back pain
-Reduce or improve osteoarthritis symptoms
-Reduce or improve sleep apnea symptoms
As you can see, that’s no small list of health benefits from weight loss! Of course, it can also improve your day-to-day lifestyle. You are more able to have an active social life from increased confidence and energy. Your stress levels go down, you sleep better, and even your sex life improves. Your mood also improves, thanks to your renewed vitality and a more positive body image.
