Over the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity. Being obese or overweight comes with a large number of inherent physiological and emotional issues, so it’s no wonder that people are desperate to lose weight:
The most critical reason for losing weight is improved health. Being overweight is associated with heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer. The World Health Organization notes that being overweight is the fifth leading cause of global death. Losing weight decreases the risk of many of these health consequences and can actually reverse some conditions, including type 2 diabetes.
Fatigue and sluggishness that comes with being overweight can also contribute to depressive symptoms.
Improved mood is another important reason for losing weight. The insecurities associated with being discriminated against foster depression and low self-esteem. There is also some evidence that mood disorders and obesity are actually linked and that depression and bipolar disease may be a precursor to obesity.
