Healthy Weight - Why Is It Important To Keep A Healthy Body Weight

so why is being at a healthy weight so important all right so I can cite a ton of statistics showing how being overweight put you to risk for all these different elements diabetes high blood pressure coronary artery disease heart attacks stroke and on and on but I'm going to make this video a bit different let's look at it from a logical perspective if we throw the statistics out when we weigh more our circulatory and respiratory systems have to work harder to deliver nutrients and oxygen to all parts of the body our digestive system also has to work much harder mainly because we're eating more than we need and why we're overweight if our body needs only 2,200 calories per day but we're shoving in 3,200 calories a day that's a thousand more calories per day that our digestive system must adjust and absorb so in a year at 365,000 extra calories our body is breaking down digesting absorbing and storing so let's say you're looking to buy a used car two identical car three years old car one has 32,000 miles on it our two has 88,000 miles less wear and tear and the engine is going to lean you to buying car one take the same perspective for your body being overweight also puts more stress on joints ligaments and tendons more stress on these makes them wear down faster and become more prone to breaking down and even tearing being overweight has a dramatic effect on our happiness being overweight can lead us to seek isolation and bring about poor decisions we're looking for something to make us feel good and who makes us feel good so we're overweight feeling bad eating more food to make us feel better and result is we gain even more weight feel even worse and make our health even worse it's a vicious cycle that many times invades our social lives as we don't want to eat around others and sometimes do whatever we can to avoid people or even being out in the public setting being underweight is also unhealthy people that are underweight are not getting enough nutrients in their body to allow it to function profit we can be immune system bones become fragile increases fatigue and decreases brain function and can also decrease self-esteem and lead people to seek isolation as you can see being in a healthy weight is crucial to physical and mental health there is a link to rush university meta centers healthy weight chart in the description box below maintaining a healthy weight can be difficult our exposure to food is constant it's no longer just nutrients that allow us to survive food has become something we look to for comfort and even as entertainment I mean look at all the food channels on TV and even here on YouTube if you want to improve your physical and mental health maintaining a healthy weight is crucial
