HEALTH RISKS OF BEING OVERWEIGHT
If you’re like most Americans today, you are struggling with at least a few extra pounds. Now if you are over 40, these pounds have probably accumulated primarily in your mid-section.
Spare-tire (Abdominal) fat distribution is more than an unsightly annoyance. Fat that accumulates in your belly is extremely dangerous! That’s because it promotes the release of proinflammatory “cytokines” that seem to be involved in just about every age-related degenerative disease.
Abdominal obesity is a hallmark characteristic of metabolic syndrome, also known as “syndrome X,’ or “pre-diabetes.” Metabolic syndrome is a constellation of insidious pathological processes that place you at significantly increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, high blood pressure, liver and gallbladder disease, sleep apnea, respiratory problems, osteoarthritis, gynecological problems and dementia.
One of the most frustrating problems middle-aged people encounter is an increase in belly fat that is resistant to most diet and exercise programs. Abdominal weight gain is not only cosmetically unsightly, but sets the stage for a host of degenerative diseases. In fact a new study showed that even in people who are not considered overweight, excess belly fat of as little as 2 inches increased the risk of death in men by 17% and women by 13%.
Studies from doctors for many years as well as testimonies have shown that HCG reduces abnormal fat all over the body, including abdominal fat. Not only will you feel better about yourself, but your health will improve so you can live an abundant life.*Much of the information in the first few paragraphs is taken from “Turn off Your Fat Switch” by Chris Lydon, MD.
