The ‘Big 3’ benefits of losing weight

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Dropping just a few pounds improves everything from sleep to sex

What springs to mind when you hear the words “Big 3?” NBA fans might think of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish. Car buffs could point to Ford, GMC and Chrysler, while millions of Canadian cellphone subscribers might shudder and say Bell, Rogers, and Telus.

But there’s another Big 3 that, unlike your wireless provider, may actually reduce your monthly bills. Which awesome Big 3 is this?

It’s the Big 3 Benefits of Losing Weight:

  1. You’ll feel better.

    Is any benefit better than this? Dropping just a few pounds can reduce joint pain, improve the quality of your sleep, and chase away fatigue and grogginess. Oh, and speaking of feeling better…

  2. Your sex life will improve.

    Your sex drive is affected by high blood pressure and other conditions that you’re likely to have if you’re overweight. Additionally, erectile dysfunction can be a problem for obese and overweight men. Plus, the people you have sex with will be all over a fitter, firmer partner. Need we say more?

  3. You’ll live longer.

    You’re feeling great, you’re getting some, so why not stick around to enjoy it? Dropping pounds lowers the risk of life-shortening conditions such as heart attacks and sleep apnea, a sleeping condition in which your breathing starts and stops but seems to you like heavy snoring.

If you’re thinking about fitting easy exercise into your day, we’ve got your back.
