Why Does Therapy Help You Lose Weight?
Nearly 70% of adults in America are considered overweight or obese. With the number of overweight individuals growing every year in this country, it is becoming more obvious that the traditional routes of weight-loss (diets, exercise, etc.) are not cutting it. But the issue with being overweight is not simply aesthetics in terms of body shape and size.
Being overweight is a serious health risk as it can lead to other medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, kidney disease, certain types of cancer, and many more. Not only does being overweight increase the risk for medical/physical problems, but also mental health problems. In general, people who are overweight tend to struggle with low self-esteem, increased anxiety, and depression.
Clearly, being overweight can significantly impact a person’s life, and seeking a non-traditional approach to weight loss might be the key to success.
