1. Allowing weight loss. Many of us decide to eat healthy in order to lose weight so we can feel better about ourselves and go out and feel confident in our bodies! It gives a huge benefit toward mental health as it improves our quality of life. But it may also be to reduce health issues such as diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be managed by having a healthy diet and regular exercise. This also goes for chronic conditions for example if a person is struggling with obesity, they are at a heightened risk of developing
- Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)
- Cancer (obesity is the second most leading factor for cancers despite it not being spoken a lot about)
- Poor bone density which accounts for arthritis to develop and overall, it prevents the individual from having efficient mobility.
Combatting obesity can also help getting a better night’s sleep as well again contributing to a better mental state.
