27 Side Effects of Losing Fat and its Life Changing Health Benefits
Below are 27 side effects of losing fat. They are Health Benefits (side effects) you get due to the changes that occur in your hormones and overall functioning. (not to mention feeling better, looking better, and getting to buy smaller clothes.)
1. Migraines are Reduced by 57%!
Less fat means less stress on your system. Stress equals muscle tension including the muscles in your scalp and head as well as the muscles of the blood vessels. Arteries are tubular muscles and when tense, restrict blood flow leading to hypoxia, less oxygen and can be a factor in migraines. By losing fat the right way you get healthier and everything else improves as well. Losing fat the wrong way may get you some benefits but it puts a strain on your body in many other ways, and doesn’t last.
2. Depression is reduced by 55%!
Hormones made by your fat contribute to sluggishness and tiredness which can lead to depression. When you are sluggish you don’t want to get out and go for a walk in the sun which is by far The Best Therapy for depression. It works even better than all the anti-depressant medications. Walking helps move toxins out of your body if you are drinking enough water to flush them out and not putting a whole lot back in. Fat cells are where your body stores toxins because it doesn’t want them in any organs or muscles to hinder proper functioning.
3. Sleep Apnea improves 74% – 98%!
Even with only 5% fat loss you can improve sleep apnea and each 5% more continues your improvement. Less bulk equal less pressure on your lungs and throat and less work for the diaphragm. That makes it easier to breathe when sleeping or awake. As belly fat reduces there is less pressure on the diaphragm and lungs as well as your heart too.
4. Asthma Reduced by 82%!
Excess fat interferes with your immune system making you more reactive to different allergens. Less fat makes it easier to breathe also lessening the effects of asthma reactions.
5. High Cholesterol Reduced by 63%!
With less fat your body can make less cholesterol. Cholesterol carries fat molecules around in the body. These are triglycerides known as LDL and HDL among others. The cholesterol doesn’t change but what it is carrying does. We call it bad when it’s carrying an LDL or good when it’s carrying an HDL. These Lipoproteins are part of the Triglycerides which are fat molecules. Less fat = less triglycerides = less cholesterol needed.
6. Pseudo-tumor Cerebri Reduced 96%!
Pseudo-tumor cerebri is a condition in which the pressure around your brain increases, causing headaches and vision problems. The name means “false brain tumor” because its symptoms are similar to those caused by brain tumors. It’s also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Reducing fat reduces pressures all over thus reducing high pressure around the brain.
7. 90% less Fatty Liver Disease!
Less fat means less strain on your liver. The liver tries to put excess toxins in fat cells but when there is just too much, the liver starts holding fat and it’s 181 different functions start to malfunction resulting in multiple symptoms
8. 82% less Cardiovascular Disease!
Less fat in the heart and arteries means better blood flow and thus more oxygen to the tissues for better functioning. Triglycerides are fats in the blood including LDL and HDL which are “lipo-” (fat) “proteins.” These fat proteins get carried around by an essential product of the body called cholesterol. The cholesterol isn’t bad it’s the LDL it’s carrying that’s bad when there is too much of it. The more triglycerides & LDL (fat) there is, the more cholesterol your body has to make to move it around.
9. 52% to 92% less Hypertension!
Less fat makes the blood flow easier. The heart and arteries don’t have to work as hard. They can relax more so resistance is reduced and hypertension is reduced.
10. 72-98% Less GERD!
(Gastro-Esophageal-Reflux-Disease or Heartburn or just Reflux)
Less fat means less pressure on your stomach. Too much pressure can push the top of the stomach up through the diaphragm. It then squeezes too low on the stomach pushing acid up the esophagus. Acid irritates the esophagus causing heartburn. This still happens even if you take antacids. The fluid pushed up just isn’t as irritating but the trade off is you can’t digest your food properly. This lead to a whole host of other problems but improper digestion leads to more fat storage!
11. 44-88% Less Urinary Incontinence!
Simple, less fat equals less pressure on the bladder and the muscles that control it.
Other factors can get involved too.
12. 97-100% Less PCOS!
This is where the hormones have more to do with it. Fat secretes estrogen compounds leading to “Estrogen Dominance Syndrome.” Too much estrogen leads to ovarian cysts. Progesterone helps but you really need to cut out the excess estrogen from the fat cells to make a significant difference.
13. Metabolic Syndrome Reduced 80%!
Metabolic syndrome is a group of five conditions that can lead to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and other health problems. Metabolic syndrome is diagnosed when someone has three or more of these risk factors: High blood glucose (sugar), Low levels of HDL (“good”) triglyceride in the blood, High triglycerides (fats in the blood including LDL), elevated blood pressure for your body type and size, and the biggest risk is excess fat weight around your waist! So of course if you lose fat around your waist, everything else gets better!
14. Type 2 Diabetes Reduced 83-100%!
Fits right in with Metabolic Syndrome and changes in hormones and metabolism. If you are eating right to lose fat, you’re eating right to “Cure” your Type 2 diabetes!
15. Type 1 Diabetics can Reduce Insulin use from 50-70%!
Better eating patterns that keep the fat off also help control glucose and insulin usage. More complex foods digest slower and less glucose is produced so less insulin is needed to get it into your cells.
16. Venous Stasis Reduced by 95%!
Venous stasis is a pooling of blood in the veins. It can cause ulcers where it happens which is usually in the legs. Less fat means better blood flow from less pressure on the veins… 95% better!
17. Degenerative Joint Disease 41-76% less! (Arthritis)
Less fat = less weight = less pressure on the joints = less compensation by the body by growing bone spurs (callouses) to strengthen the bones and joints to withstand the extra pressures. Less fat means more freedom of movement so more joint fluid is moved in and around the joints providing more cushioning and less DJD/Arthritis.
18. 77% Less Gout!
Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis like above that can affect anyone. It’s characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in one or more joints, most often in the big toe.
Foods and drinks that often trigger gout attacks include organ meats, game meats, some types of fish, fruit juice, sugary sodas and alcohol. On the other hand, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products may help prevent gout attacks by lowering uric acid levels.
Eating better thus reduces fat as well as many other things.
19. 5 Year Mortality Reduced by 89%!
Research shows you live longer with less fat. Which means you die sooner with more fat! Longevity research has shown that slightly underweight people tend to live longer than obese people. From the previous 18 items we’ve already mentioned it must be obvious why one would live longer if they were healthier because of less fat.
20. 95% Improved Quality of Life!
If you lose fat you will have fewer diseases and less stress on your body. You will live longer because you are healthier and your quality of life will be greatly improved. All of this is well researched and studied.
We know what works but getting people to do it is not as easy. There’s too much profit in the processed food industry and too much propaganda selling it.
21. Less Insomnia
This goes right along with less sleep apnea. Even with only 5% fat loss you can improve your sleep and each 5% more continues your improvement. Less bulky fat means less pressure on your lungs and throat and less work for the diaphragm so it’s easier to breathe all the time but especially when sleeping. As belly fat reduces there is less pressure on the diaphragm and lungs as well as your heart too.
22. 83% Less Foot Pains!
When you lose fat you lose weight so there is less pressure on your feet. It also means your arches don’t break down as fast so there’s less planter fasciitis.
It also give you more time to get your arches corrective arch supports or flexible orthotics. It’s important they are flexible and not rigid. Your foot is supposed to be able to move and bend and absorb the shocks of walking & running etc. Rigid orthotics may support only one of the three arches but they don’t allow for proper motion.
23. Glowing Skin!
Fewer bags under the eyes. Better skin tone. All from doing what it takes to lose fat…. eating better quality food that is nutrient dense with more nutrition for your skin and your whole body and all your organs.
24. Better Mood and Sense of Wellbeing!
