How to lose inches by losing your weight
A study of women who lost an average of 0.4 inches (0.6 cm) of their height has revealed some startling findings.
In their research, published in the journal Obesity, researchers found that women who gained weight had an increased risk of developing a range of metabolic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, and high blood pressure.
The study also found that men who gained 5.5 or more pounds (3.8 kg) of body weight also had an elevated risk of these disorders, which can lead to complications including heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The authors of the study said that the findings suggest that a healthy weight is not merely a marker of health but a “tool for weight management”.
“Our study found that if a person is able to lose a significant amount of weight, they have a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and hypertension,” said lead author Sarah Levenson from the University of York.
In a related study, a research team at the University College London also found a link between obesity and metabolic disease. “
The findings also suggest that losing weight may also have benefits for metabolic health, such as reducing the risk of obesity-related cancers.”
In a related study, a research team at the University College London also found a link between obesity and metabolic disease.
The researchers found people who gained more than 20 pounds (9.2 kg) were about three times more likely to develop type 2 diabetus, a condition that can lead not only to diabetes, but also to heart disease, stroke, and even premature death.
They also found people with obesity were twice as likely to die from diabetes and three times as likely as non-obese people to die of heart disease.
Researchers believe that the increased risk for diabetes in people who have an obesity problem is likely to be due to changes in the brain, according to the study.
Researchers at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) are now looking at how weight loss and exercise may be combined to address the growing epidemic of obesity.
The research team said the combination of weight loss, exercise and lifestyle changes could potentially be used to help those who suffer from metabolic diseases.
“We found that exercise and weight loss combined were the best way to help people who were obese lose weight,” Dr James Kupfers from the NIH said.
“That’s because exercise, combined with a healthy diet, and good exercise habits, may help people to lose weight and lose weight safely and without the risk for cardiovascular disease.”
