When you have tried every diet in the world and have been trying to lose weight for months to no avail, it’s easy to just give up and tell yourself that perhaps it’s too late to lose those extra pounds. Well, you should know that’s not true!
A recent study in the U.K. showed that even if you have been overweight throughout your adulthood, that does not necessarily mean you’ll develop heart disease or diabetes later in life. What you need to do, however, is work on achieving a healthier weight by the time you reach 50.
In a study conducted among middle-aged men with health records from age 21, those who were overweight at 21 years old had about 6% higher chance of developing Type-2 diabetes. However, that percentage rose to 21% for those who were still overweight at the age of 50. Astoundingly, those who had normal weights when they were younger and gained weight by middle age increased their risk of getting diabetes by about three times.
What does that mean? It means that the effects of a high BMI (Body Mass Index) when you are younger is potentially reversible. But that does not mean you should put off your plan to lose weight and continue carrying around those extra pounds. Not only does an unhealthy weight come with negative health effects, but losing weight also gets more and more difficult as you grow older.
Studies show that there are certain diseases that are particularly associated with obesity. Extra pounds in both men and women put one at a higher risk for heart disease, although the added risk for men is strikingly higher. Obese men are three times more likely to die from heart disease compared to those who have normal weight.
Aside from the health risks, obesity also affects one’s quality of life, especially as the person grows older. Simple activities like walking or even getting out of a chair prove to be more difficult for obese people.
So while it is never too late to lose weight, it’s never too early to start either!
