Weight – It’s A Balancing Act To Lighten Up

Making a commitment to maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things you can do for your health and well-being.

Being a healthy weight has important benefits, not only on how you feel, but also for lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes, sleeping problems, joint pain and a range of other conditions.

When our weight changes it generally comes down to two factors – how much we eat and drink (energy in), and how active we are (energy out). It’s all about achieving a balance: If we don’t use up all the energy we consume, the excess will be stored as body fat, and over time our body weight will increase.

‘Apple-shaped’ bodies carry more weight around their middle and are a greater health risk than ‘pear-shaped’ bodies where weight is carried more around the hips and thighs. When estrogen levels drop during menopause, women are more likely to develop more fat around the abdomen.

We know that people come in all shapes and sizes so what might be a healthy weight for one person isn’t necessarily healthy for another. At Healthy Life we believe that an individual approach is better for the long term.

So if you are looking for a healthy weight for a helathy life and want balanced advice that’s tailor-made just for you, then it’s time to LIGHTEN UP™.
