Over the past 50 years we have been driven to lose weight. This is mostly due to the media promoting the ‘body beautiful’, while trying to sell clothes and beauty products etc. Plus we have the image of our favorite films stars to try and live up to.
Despite this obsession however, there are very good reasons to lose weight. An overweight body puts strain on our organs and wears the body out earlier than necessary
Plus, weight loss helps us feel better about ourselves, raising our self esteem, and increases our energy levels.
Living in our modern world, obesity is on the increase due to overeating, reduced activity levels – especially with our children, so now is the best time to start making that effort to increase our life spans and lead a fuller, healthier life.
