Weight Loss Q & A

How does being overweight threaten my health?

  • Fatty liver disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Sleep apnea
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Osteoarthritis 

In addition, excess weight puts you at risk for and can exacerbate depression and anxiety. People with obesity are 55% more likely to develop depression than people who aren’t obese.

What lifestyle choices can I make to lose weight?

To start losing weight, you can make a variety of changes today. These include:

  • Increasing your activity levels to at least 30 minutes a day
  • Eating fiber-rich foods (like vegetables, beans, and whole grains)
  • Avoiding added sugars (found in candy, soft drinks, and baked goods)
  • Eating healthy fats (like avocado, olive oil, and nuts)
  • Eating at the dinner table instead of in front of the TV
  • Cooking at home instead of eating out
  • Eating protein in the morning

By starting with changes like these, you can align yourself to be on track for good health, which is the ultimate goal. Enduring changes take time, but if you persist, you’ll find that in the long run, your weight loss is more lasting and significant than if you participate in a fad diet.
