Bodyweight has become one of the most common problems in modern society. It is not only important for our physical appearance, being overweight carries a lot of health issues.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), we have an obesity pandemic on our hands since its prevalence nearly tripled since 1975. Their data shows that 1 out of 3 adults in the world carry excess weight, with 13% being obese, while 39% are considered overweight.
How Excess Weight Affects Health
Raised body mass index (BMI) increases the risk of many conditions, such as:
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Musculoskeletal disorders
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of annual deaths in the world. And the higher the BMI, the higher the risk of developing a cardiovascular condition.
Obesity in children is particularly dangerous as it can lead to breathing problems, increased risk of fractures, insulin resistance, and early signs of cardiovascular diseases such as higher blood pressure. It can also increase the chances of developing a disability in adulthood and experience premature death.
So excess weight is not something that should be ignored.
How Can I Reduce My Weight?
Experts are unanimous on this; the single best thing you can do to reduce your weight is to adopt a healthier diet and become active.
Weight gain is most commonly the result of excess intake of calories. That means that you are consuming more energy than you are burning.
Consuming a healthier diet will reduce caloric intake. Look to cut out refined sugars and saturated fats, and avoid junk food at all costs.
The second part of the puzzle is increasing the amount of energy you burn. You can do this by being more active. You don’t have to go to the gym every day and have intensive training sessions, just walk a bit more every day. As little as 30 minutes of walking can make a significant difference.
Even that can be too much for some people since they don’t have enough time and energy on their hands.
So, is there any other way to lose weight?
