Currently in Australia, it is estimated that 54% of adults are overweight or obese: that is certainly not a statistic that we should be proud of!
If you are currently in the overweight / obese category, you may think the whole process of losing weight is just ‘too hard’ and are a little daunted by the enormity of committing to a weight loss programme.
The good news is that losing as little as 5kg can make a HUGE difference to your health. For example, if you are overweight, the risk of heart disease is lowered with every kilogram that you lose. Losing just 5kg can actually lower your risk of heart disease by up to as 25%.
It’s not just risk of heart disease that can be lowered by weight loss: the incidence of developing diabetes is also lowered and damage to joints by arthritis. It is estimated that if you are overweight and lose just 5kg, that there is between 13-30kg less pressure on the knee joint with every step that you take! Of course, the nearer you are to your ‘ideal’ weight, the less likely it is that osteoarthritis will develop in the first place.
