Weight management is a critical component to your anti aging strategy. Why? Because fat effects your health!
In 1960 45% of adults were overweight. In the 70’s that increased to 48% but by the late 1980’s 56% of the adult population was overweight. Unfortunately, the trend continues. Over the last 10 years the corn belt of the Midwest has been replaced by the elastic belt of our expanding waistlines. According to the National Center for Health Statistics:

All of the primary causes of death and disability are found in the above list. Currently, the health care costs for being overweight and obese have now overtaken the health care costs for smoking.
Diet, Weight Loss, & Weight Management
Many people equate weight management with diet and weight loss. Although there is a relationship between them they are not the same.
People use so called “Diets” and “Weight Loss Programs” to help control their weight. For 90% of the people, the typical result is that they loose weight and then gain it all back plus some more. Then they repeat the cycle. This slowly erodes their overall health and wellness.
Most “Diets” and “Weight Loss Programs” are restrictive in nature. You will never live your life long term in a restrictive program! That’s why you can’t continue them so you revert back to your old eating habits which created the weight problem in the first place. In the process most people loose muscle mass which lowers their metabolism. When they return to their normal eating patterns, they add back the weight they lost. Unfortunately, more of that weight is made up of fat.
Weight management is exactly what it says: learning how to manage your weight so that it stays within a narrow range. It is based upon making healthy food choices that will properly nourish your body. It is making healthy decision on what to eat and when to eat them so that your body can maintain a stable weight.
