A Little Junk in Your Trunk?

A few extra pounds may be helpful IF you are physically active and eat a healthy diet. We all know that being obese increases risks of all kinds of health issues. But, a little extra padding can reduce the risk of breaking a bone during a fall; or allow for a reserve of stored energy if you get sick. According to a study from the National Cancer Institute, moderately overweight (10-15 pounds above ideal weight) people lived about 3 years longer than their normal weight peers.

The key to good health- for both overweight and slim people- is eating a healthy diet and being physically active. We’re never too far gone to embrace a healthier lifestyle. For more information schedule an appointment with your primary health care provider.
