Here Are 7 Surprising Health Benefits of Losing Weight

In your weight loss endeavor, you might need some motivation to continue on the right track. From providing you more energy to helping you have fewer aches (with improved immune system), losing those extra pounds has quite a few health benefits as well.

We at Blossom Hypnotherapy have outlined 7 of them to keep you motivated:

It Reduces Allergies and Asthma Symptoms

Weight loss and asthma might seem unrelated, but research has shown otherwise. It has been found that weight loss in obese asthmatics can lead to effective asthma control. It was also found that surgically-induced weight loss procedures can produce reduction in the severity of asthma.

Adrenal glands are responsible for managing asthma and allergies. Increased weight can put a tremendous amount of strain on these glands, aggravating asthma symptoms.

It Leads to Decreased Foot Pain

This one’s pretty obvious. Being obese will mean that your feet have to carry more weight, which can lead to quite a few foot problems. These problems include tendon inflammation, Osteoarthritis etc.

According to Everyday Health, people who lost an average of 90 pounds after having bariatric surgery complaint 83 percent less than those who had not.

It Can Enhance Your Mood

Obesity implies that your body is out of equilibrium. This can negatively affect your mood as well. One study published in ScienceDaily shows that when depressed people lost 8 percent of their weights, they experienced positive mood changes.

It Can Lead to Glowing Skin

This one’s related to a healthy diet. From skin elasticity to skin tone, good nutrition can cause positive effects on the skin.

Diets that are high in carbohydrates can lead to serious skin conditions, such as skin pallor and skin tags.

It Can Lead to Memory Improvement

Weight loss benefits extend to the mind as well. According to a research published in ScienceDaily, it was found that weight loss led to brain alterations and caused enhanced memory in older, overweight women.

It Helps You Get Better Sleep

The prospect of having a sound sleep can be a motivating factor for many. A publication by the Harvard Medical School emphasizes the importance of losing weight for a good, sound sleep. From symptoms of sleep apnea to daytime fatigue, the study mentioned showed quite a few sleep benefits in participants who lost weight.
