Health Conditions Linked to Being Overweight

Weight loss programs are not always just so you can look good. Science points to many health conditions that come as a result of obesity or being overweight.  A tremendous amount of people are facing real health challenges because of the way food causes them to continue to gain weight.

It’s a documented fact that the food industry uses research and science to understand the chemistry of how food impacts the brain as well as your taste receptors. They know exactly what makes you crave and get addicted to various tastes and foods and then they use that against you and before you know it, what seemed like a great enjoyable food becomes your enemy.

The food you love literally does things to your body that can lead to a long list of very serious health challenges. So the goal of losing weight really no longer is about just looking and feeling better. It becomes about life and death.

Here’s a list of serious challenges to be aware of if you’re carrying more weight than you know you should. This list is according to WebMD.com.

Health Conditions Linked to Being Overweight

Fatty Liver Disease

When fat builds up in your liver, it may make scar tissue (a condition known as cirrhosis) that can eventually shut your liver down completely. Symptoms may not appear until the damage is done. Doctors don’t know exactly what causes fatty liver disease, but you’re more likely to have problems when you’re overweight, especially in middle age.

Trouble Breathing

Your larger body may prevent your lungs from expanding fully, and your breathing muscles may not work as well, so you can’t take enough air in. Inflammation linked to belly fat may also affect your lungs. You could get winded quickly while doing simple activities like climbing stairs. Extra weight can make asthma symptoms and COPD worse.


More weight puts more strain on your joints and on the cartilage that protects the ends of your bones, causing pain and stiffness. More body fat may also trigger more inflammation. Just 5% less body weight will take the pressure off of your hips, lower back, and knees. (That’s dropping from 200 pounds to 190.) Exercise is one of the best things you can do for arthritis. Talk to your doctor about what kind and how much is right for you.

High Cholesterol

While your genes have some influence, what you eat and how much you exercise also play a role. Unhealthy foods can raise your weight and your “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Foods with soluble fiber — like oats and other whole grains, beans, apples, grapes, strawberries, eggplant, and okra — will help get your cholesterol down as well as fill you up so you eat fewer calories.

If you’re suffering from any of the above conditions then likely this is not the first time you’re looking into trying to get control of your weight.

Weight loss is a goal of so many people and if you’re like most folks then it has been difficult to lose weight and keep it off for a variety of reasons.

Truth be told, the cards are honestly stacked against you.

Why do we say that?

Because of all of the propaganda about weight loss and because of all of the celebrity-endorsed systems that make things look easy and make it seem like you’ll get fast results, but in the back of your mind you know if it’s too good to be true then it just can’t be true – right?

The other thing going against you is convenience. Unfortunately, it’s convenient to find and eat foods that are designed to do one thing.

And that is to get you hooked! Yes, addicted. And don’t think for one second that the food industry doesn’t spend a fortune thinking of new and innovative ways to get you hooked on even more foods even if they know that the end result will lead you to be overweight and facing a large list of medical challenges.

So, what’s the solution?

First off, congratulations on looking for a solution. That means you’re one of the smart people who realize that in order to get something different, then you’re going to have to do something different.

Taking a pill or getting a shot is only going to last as long as the shot lasts or until the pill wears off. Plus, the substance that is in the pill or the shot is often even more harmful than you carrying a few extra pounds.

It never makes sense to take two steps backward and then one step forward and call that progress. And that’s exactly what the take a ‘magic pill’ or get this ‘one-shot’ and then starve method is doing.

We have a better option for you and the weight not only comes off; it comes off for good.

Best of all, it’s not a magic pill, and it’s not a magic shot. It’s not even magic at all. It’s all based on science.
