If you have been drawn to healthy eating for weight loss reasons, then you should congratulate yourself. People who are overweight rarely understand the severity of their condition.

Being overweight generally means that you are starving for nutrition. You are eating the wrong foods to nurture and nourish your body, so it keeps you hungry in the hope of eventually getting nourishing food.

Apart from the lack of nutrition which can contribute to a multitude of illnesses, you are also putting a great strain on your body. Your heart has to work much harder as do your liver and kidneys. Exercise becomes much more difficult, compounding the problem even further.

But let’s look at what the typical results of being over weight in the long term are.

Type 2 diabetes is common. In fact, 80% of type 2 diabetics are over weight. A complication with diabetes is gangrene.

Diabetics have a much greater chance of getting heart disease, such as sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, congestive heart failure, angina, and abnormal heart rhythm.

Blood pressure is a natural consequence of carrying too much weight, as the heart must work harder to get all the blood around the whole body.

The natural and healthy functioning of cholesterol is put out of balance, resulting in higher test readings.

All these problems are categorised under the heading of a ‘metabolic syndrome’, which just means that you have a weight problem with all the related illnesses discussed above.

A recent study has discovered that there is a greater than 80% chance of getting Parkinson’s disease in diabetics.

An interesting discovery is that the majority of women with polycystic ovaries are over weight. Obesity also has an impact on the sexual dysfunction and infertility in men.

There is also a link with your thyroid, which is responsible for your metabolism.

Need I go on?

The thing is, if you practice healthy eating for weight loss, you can also prevent or resolve serious illnesses. As long as you eat the right foods. And for that, you’ve come to the right place.
