The Obesity Sentence

The Obesity Sentence
According to researchers in Canada, if you’re obese, you may be giving yourself a devastating life-shortening sentence. Here’s why.
 
A new study in The Lancet found that very obese men ages 20-39 die eight years earlier than their healthy peers and lose around 16 years of good quality day-to-day living! That makes their RealAge about 11 years older. Very obese women, on the other hand, lose up to 7.6 years! Those extra pounds lead to heart disease and type two diabetes -- and all its complications. The study also reveals that folks who are obese (instead of morbidly obese) face starling life-shortening sentences -- up to six years of life evaporates!
 
Never has it been clearer that arresting and banning the Five Food Felons (grains that aren’t 100% whole, added sugars and syrups, and trans and sat fats), getting daily physical activity, and managing stress will make your RealAge younger. You can cooperate with healthy lifestyle choices and get your do-over to live a younger and healthier life!
