Why Does It Matter?

separator Many overweight people are often teased as children (and sometimes even as adults) and plagued by self-doubt as long as they remain overweight. They frequently go on weird diets and have little long-term success. The outward problems of being considered a "fat" person are very real and can cause a great deal of mental anguish. But while many of us think of being obese or overweight as a kind of image problem, it goes even deeper.

Being overweight puts you at risk for such serous conditions as

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

The more overweight you are, the higher the risk.
