Why? Weight can affect your periods and ovulation—so if you’re not at a healthy weight range your fertility can suffer.
People with a healthy weight people have a lower risk of disease and thus, live longer. And it can be significantly longer. The estimate lifespan of an obese person (that’s anyone with a BMI of 40-45) is up to 10 years shorter than that of a normal-weight person.
People with a high body mass index are more likely to show signs of early plaque buildup in their arteries when compared to normal-weight people.
Fat, and particularly belly fat can interfere with lung function making it harder for them to expand. And since breathing issues can lead to nighttime problems like sleep apnea, being overweight can takes a significant toll on your sleep which in turn can have significant health complications if loss of sleep become chronic.
Being overweight in itself can be a physiological barrier to exercise. Getting you weight down can start a chain reaction of positive feelings and positive health actions, including better eating and exercise. Conversely, gaining weight can trigger the same reaction, only in the other direction.
Even minor weight loss for people who are overweight is associated with delaying or preventing Type 2 Diabetes
