Just A Few Extra Pounds Proven To Increase Early Death

Press release from: Punch Kettlebell Gym Dover

December 2010, Dover, DE Yahoo News reports one of the largest studies to look at health and weight finds that you don't have to be obese to raise your risk of premature death. Merely being overweight carries high risk, too
Obesity increases the risk of death from heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. But whether being merely overweight contributes to an early death as well has been uncertain and controversial.
Local fitness expert Chris Gray warns that just a few extra pounds will put you at risk for significant health issues including early death.
Countless people fall into this trap every year gaining a few extra pounds and feeling it is no big deal, promising themselves they will take off the extra weight in the months ahead. Before you know it another year has gone by and once again your New Year’s Resolution is to lose those extra pounds.
Unfortunately this pattern is a dangerous one and now studies have proven the risk. The truth is most people don’t stick to their resolutions for more than 30 days and ultimately do not take off those extra pounds.
Now, there's really a very large body of evidence which supports the finding that being even just slightly overweight is associated with an increased risk of death.
The latest research involving about 1.5 million people concluded that healthy adults who were overweight were 13 percent more likely to die during the time they were followed in the study than those whose weight was in an ideal range, and the morbidly obese were 2 1/2 times more likely to die prematurely.
The take home message here is that even being just slightly overweight will significantly increase your chances for health problems, disease, and even death. The best approach is a proactive approach; don’t wait like so many others do until you are significantly overweight to do something about it. By taking action early you will greatly increase your chances of weight loss success and significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to get back to your target weight.
