Losing 5% to 10% of your body weight will lower your cholesterol, blood pressure, and decrease your chances of developing weight-related illnesses such as diabetes II. Yet there are many other less obvious benefits to losing weight than that of an improved body image. Once you develop a personalized weight loss plan and stick to it, there’s no doubt you’ll experience unanticipated quality of life improvements coming at you from left field.
You’ll Start by Saving Money
Once you modify your dietary lifestyle, as opposed to adhering to another fad diet, you’ll realize that although the weight loss may occur at a less rapid rate, you’re less likely to regain that weight. You’ll go out to eat less, make food from scratch, and eliminate complex carbs and processed foods. Eating at home and stocking your fridge with staples as opposed to prepackaged foods is going to save you a lot of money. Once the weight is off, go in for a physical and pass off your panels to your insurance companies. Your insurance rates will go down, not only on your life insurance but your health insurance as well. Suddenly you’re saving even more money. Sleep better at night knowing not only are you are in good health but your bank account is in better health as well.
Losing Weight: More Restful Sleep
Once you start losing weight you’ll notice your sleeping habits will improve. If you think you’re sleeping better because your bank account is in better standing, think again. It’s statistically proven that those who are overweight have a higher likelihood of developing sleep apnea and being predisposed to snoring. Additionally, an unhealthy diet that is rich in complex carbs and sugars is more likely to dehydrate you or stir up digestive issues which are likely to interrupt your sleep throughout the night.
Your Mood And Sex Life Will Improve
You’re saving money and getting a good night’s sleep. That’d put anyone in a better mood. But recent studies have revealed that not only does losing weight reduce levels of stress and anxiety, but improves a person’s overall mental health. Depression recedes, instances of social anxiety taper off, and mood and mental clarity not only improve but remain stable. Your skin and hair become healthier after you lose weight and your sense of body image improve. You’ll have more energy, confidence, and your hormones will be more balanced than before. That all adds up to an overall improvement to your sex life, in not only in your experience but also in your performance. The health benefits of a healthy sex life improve your immune system, heart health, and mood.
Whatever method you choose to lose weight, get ready for a change of lifestyle more far-reaching than you can anticipate. Your quality of life will change so dramatically, you’ll be counting every calorie with every blessing.
