WOW! EVERY excess pound gained raises risk of death. Notice the emphasis on EVERY. It’s not 5 pounds or 20 pounds it is EVERY SINGLE POUND!!!! If you are overweight, what are you doing? Obesity is preventable with behavioral changes. “Yeah, right,” you say. You have been dieting and doing the yo-you thing most of your life. I did too. Most of my life I was obese. 15 years ago I weighed 110 pounds more than I do now. Thanks to weight loss hypnosis I lost weight and I have kept it off with self-hypnosis. Since 1997 I have been assisting clients with the Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss program to lose weight. Seattle and Bainbridge Island weight loss clients can visit me easily in the Medical Dental Building or at my office on Bainbridge. If you live too far away from Puget Sound, then together, you and I, can create a phone and Skype session that will support you with your weight loss.
Every Excess Pound Gained Raises Risk of Death
WebMD Health News, December 1, 2010: Your risk of death rises steadily with every overweight pound you gain. Even if you don’t smoke and are in otherwise good health, your risk of death goes up 31% with every 5-point increase in BMI.
Just being a little bit overweight increases death risk. Compared to those with a normal-range BMI of 22.5 to 24.9:
* A BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 increased death risk by 13%
* A BMI of 30.0 to 34.9 increased death risk by 44%
* A BMI of 35.0 to 39.9 increased death risk by 88%
* A BMI of 40.0 to 49.9 increased death risk by 251%
Those figures are for women who do not smoke and who have no underlying disease. The risks are similar for men. There were more than five times as many deaths among participants in the highest obesity categories than in previous studies, because severe obesity had become more common.
The findings appear in the December 2, 2010, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Are you overweight or obese? Life is too short and too precious to shorten it or even limit it with fat. You can lose weight.
