Dover Weight loss Expert on the benefits of losing weight

As summer approaches (and boy is the summer weather approaching quickly), weight loss is on a lot of people’s minds. They want to look good and feel good so they can be active and look good while lounging in bliss on the beach.


Even if that isn’t your goal, everyone can benefit from changing their lifestyles to become more healthy! In Delaware alone, 63.4% of Delawareans are overweight, and 30.7% are obese. This can cause a slew of different medical problems that simply adopting a healthy lifestyle can get rid of.


Some of those medical problems include: diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, stress, and depression. Even just changing your diet and adding in exercise can greatly reduce any of these issues!


Regular exercise and healthy nutrition can do so many things, including reducing your risk of heart disease by 40%, stroke by 27%, diabetes by 50%, high blood pressure by 50%, breast cancer by 50%, and colon cancer by 60%.


That’s a whole lot of benefits for some small changes!


A lot of people think that the only way to be healthy is to exercise, but that’s actually not true. Our new partner Balanced Habits says that weightloss is actually 80% nutrition; and they should know because they’ve helped over 125,000 individuals meet their goals and lead healthier lives through nutrition based programming.


Have you ever heard the saying that you can out exercise a bad diet? Well it’s completely true, because even if you’re burning 500 calories (and that’s if you’re getting in a REALLY good workout) eating one slice of cake or one cheeseburger can easily fill that gap. Add that on to a 2,000 calorie diet and overtime that can surmount to a substantial amount of weight gain.


So how do you eat healthy?


One meal at a time.


Make some swaps, but don’t try to cut everything “bad” from your diet because you won’t be able to keep it up!
