their blood stream as well as triglycerides (blood fat).

pumped to the heart. Sudden death can occur stemming from heart disease and stroke, with very little warning,
signs and symptoms.

having or developing heart disease or a stroke. Plus, your heart functions would also improve, as well as your
blood pressure, cholesterol level and a decreasing triglyceride count

result from having it. Being overweight can cause diabetes, type one and two.

sugar levels as well as the medication you may be currently taking. Increasing your daily physical activity can
help you to speed up your blood streams as well as losing those unnecessary pounds.

A number of cancers are directly linked to being overweight. The most common types of cancer that woman get is
associated with being overweight and includes cancer of the uterus, gallbladder, ovary, breast, and colon. This is

avoided as much as possible.
Weight loss reduces sleep apnea.
Or it could eliminate it all together. Sleep apnea is a condition wherein one could temporarily stop breathing
for a brief period and then would continue to snore heavily. Sleep Apnea could cause drowsiness and sleepiness
during the day because of being overweight, and could also result in heart failure. Slimming down and getting rid
of those excess pounds could help in eliminating this problem.
Weight loss reduces the pain of osteoarthritis.
Being overweight causes the joints of a person's knees, hips and lower back to exert double, if not triple
effort, to carry a person through out his or her waking and moving life. This could cause tension and stress on
these joints. Weight loss decreases the load these joints carry, thus decreasing, if not eliminating the pain of
one who has osteoarthritis.
