The start of a new year provides the opportunity for change and setting new goals. The most common resolutions made on January 1st are losing weight, eating better and committing to an exercise routine. This isn’t surprising considering most people tend to indulge during the latter part of the year. However, 2020 has been a challenging year. Since many of us were told to work from home preparing healthy lunches and visiting the local gym are out of the question, causing that number on the scale to steadily climb.
Multiple organizations such as Obesity Canada, the Canadian Medical Association and the World Health organization consider obesity to be a chronic disease[i]. A diagnosis of obesity takes into account your health history, calculated body mass index and waist circumference measurement. Being overweight is not just about the numbers though. The risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and certain types of cancers increase in overweight individuals[ii]. So working towards that six pack shouldn’t be the reason why you may want to shed a few pounds in 2021. Managing your weight is important for your overall health. Achieving a healthy weight not only lowers the risk of developing other conditions but also improves mental well-being. In other words, managing your weight is simply one of the best ways to achieve overall health.
