Thanks to stars like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce, having curves has definitely become more desirable.
But allowing your curves to get out of hand, is just plain risky.
Obesity is defined as a condition in which you have too much body fat. And guess what – being just 20% overweight, places you in this category.
Obesity increases your risk of:
1. Heart disease
3. Metabolic syndrome
4. Type 2 diabetes
5. Insulin resistance
6. High blood pressure
7. Breathing problems
9. Gallbladder disease
10. Certain cancers.
You don’t need any more reasons to lose weight and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. It’s the smartest investment you can make, particularly as far as disease prevention is concerned.
