What are the benefits of losing weight?

In America, there are more overweight or obese people than people with a healthy body weight, which is defined as falling into the normal range on the body mass index (BMI) scale (18.5-24.9). 

People with a BMI between 25-29.9 are considered overweight. People with a BMI of 30 or higher are considered obese, while those with a BMI of 40 or higher are considered morbidly obese. 

Whether you’re overweight, obese, or morbidly obese, you risk developing serious health complications, including metabolic syndrome, stroke, hypertension, sleep apnea, diabetes, coronary artery disease, GI disorders, gynecological and fertility issues, most kinds of cancer, arthritis, and mental health disorders. 

The good news is that losing any amount of weight brings significant health benefits. With sustained weight loss, you can stop or reverse many of these conditions. 

In fact, research studies indicate that for overweight or obese individuals, losing as little as 5-10% of your weight can lead to:

Dr. Guerre and our team at Genesis Weight Loss and Wellness Centers can give you personalized information about the health benefits you can expect by losing weight based on your current health. 

For example, some patients can expect to stop taking some of their medications after losing weight.
