11 reasons to motivate you to reach your ideal body weight

Sometimes we lack motivation to start a diet, and this is the most important thing for weight loss success! I found interesting to share these 11 reasons why ideal weight is important. I really hope they will motivate you! There are a million more reasons why but let’s start with those ;)

   1-  To prevent having cancer: At least 15 types of cancer are directly related to overweight, especially breast cancer. Research shows that overweight ladies have 35% greater chance to develop this type of cancer. Fat around the waist increases inflammation which makes it harder for the body’s immune system to respond to tumor cells attack.

    2-  To keep a good eye vision: Overweight people have more risk to develop diabetes type 2 and/or high blood pressure. These diseases with time damage the eyes and once this happens, there’s no way back to vision!

3-      To improve sexual life: overweight man has less testosterone, hormone related to sexual appetite. In addition, overweight man and woman have their cardiovascular system damaged which affects the blood circulation of all the body including the sexual organs.

4-      To maintain a healthy respiration: a heavy weight around the waist squeezes the respiration muscle impeding its normal contraction. When this happens, the lungs don’t get completely filled with air and this can even lead to infections like pneumonia.

5-      To have an envious skin: not damaged by the yoyo effect of weight loss/weight gain

6-      To be free of depression and low-self esteem: Obesity alters the levels of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin which are linked to well-being.

7-      To maintain a good memory: Studies show a relationship between weight gain and bad memory

8-      To sleep well: overweight also decreases sleep quality

9-      To avoid hernias and joint pain due to a heavy body

10-   To decrease the risk of intoxication: obesity can cause fat to fill the liver which will be harmed and will in turn leave place for toxins to invade the body

11-  To keep food taste: recent research show a relationship between a big tummy and less sensitivity for certain tastes like sweet. It’s as if overweight people compensate the lack of taste with a larger quantity of food ingested.

  1. Sài Gòn thành phố nhộn nhịp, cuộc sống diễn ra nhanh chóng một ngày trôi qua thật nhanh thế có khi nào bạn tự thưởng cho mình một không gian quán cafe yên tính tại nơi ồn ào tấp nập này chưa? Nếu bạn có ý định ấy thì chúng tôi khuyên bận không nên bỏ qua cafe đường tú xương chúng tôi chắc rằng đây sẽ là một trong những địa điểm giúp ạn thư giãn tuyệt vời nhất. Một ly cafe một cuốn tạp chí nge một bản nhạc hòa mình vào thiên nhiên là một trong những sự lựa chọn nhiều nhất của chúng ta. Cho nên để tìm được cafe dep saigon không mấy khó khăn. Nếu bạn có nhu cầu hãy ghé quá cafe casanova để thư giản, thưởng thức những ly cafe nhé!
