Why do I need to lose weight?

Losing weight is essential for your overall well-being. You feel better, have more confidence, and may even have more energy if you’re at a healthier weight. But the benefits of weight loss go much deeper. If you lose a moderate amount of weight, such as 5% of your body weight, your risk of the following health issues gradually decreases:

  • Stroke 
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes 
  • Kidney disease
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Certain types of cancer

Losing weight can help you lessen your risk of developing these and other serious health issues.

What causes obesity?

As you may know, having a sedentary lifestyle is known as the leading cause of weight gain. Obesity, however, is about more than a lack of exercise and poor food choices. In many cases, underlying health factors that might be out of your control could be contributing to your weight gain or making it difficult for you to lose weight.

For example, if you inherit certain genetics that impacts how your body stores fat and how it’s distributed, your risk of being obese is higher. Obesity is also positively correlated with:

  • Stress 
  • Lack of sleep
  • Hormonal fluctuations 
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Thyroid dysfunction 

 

Occasionally, prescription medications affect your metabolism and can lead to weight gain, too. Because of these underlying issues, obesity management isn’t something you should handle alone. 

  • Are you having difficulty performing work functions?
  • Are you avoiding social activities because of your weight?
  • Do you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more?
  • Do you continue to put on weight?
