THE BENEFITS OF LOSING WEIGHT
Here’s how losing weight can change your life
When you lose weight, you start to minimise your risk of major health problems. According to cardiologist Dr Muhammad Chevaan Hendrickse, being active and keeping within the normal weight range may reduce future risk of cancer, stroke, diabetes, coronary artery disease, chronic kidney disease and other problems. “Patients with a BMI over 40, may have their life expectancy reduced by up to 10 years,” he said.
