Weight Management 

Here we look at the importance of a healthy diet and provide information and tips on how you can manage your weight.   

Why is being overweight bad for your health?

  

While most of us are aware that being overweight can affect our health, few realise that carrying excess weight can cause life-threatening diseases. The most significant health risk associated with being overweight is heart disease. That is why it is vital to maintain a healthy weight. Excess weight forces the heart to work harder to do simple tasks, such as climbing stairs. Lack of regular exercise will ‘aggravate’ weight problems, increase the risk of high blood pressure and stroke and considerably increase the risk of heart disease. Therefore, a healthy lifestyle is essential to improving general health and wellbeing.
