Weight Loss Q & A

What are the Health Risks of Being Overweight?

Extra weight makes your heart work harder, wears out your bones and muscles, and increases the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Most overweight people don’t sleep well due to general aches or because they develop sleep apnea.
Being overweight increases your risk for serious health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some types of cancer. The bottom line is that being overweight puts your health at risk.
