Your health is your most important asset

Whatever you are doing and however much money you have got the one thing that is important to us all is our health.

It really doesn’t matter what we look like when we are overweight and in fact you can look great on the outside but it is important to know what being overweight means for your health.

As a quick check if you measure your waist and it is more than half your height you are carrying too much weight. Obviously the bigger the diference the greater the risk.If you are 5ft 8 inches your waist should be no more than 34 inches.  So what are the facts

  • Did you know that 80% of people who have Type 2 Diabetes are overweight or obese
  • Did you know that 1 in 20 cancers are linked to being overweight or obese
  • Did you know that being overweight leads to high blood pressure and high cholesterol increasing your chances of stroke and heart disease

But by losing as little as 5-10% of your weight can reduce your risk

So start now and protect your future and for anyone wanting support and help at http://www.weight-away I offer personalised plans, recipes, support and coaching to help you get to a healthy weight.

So get out the tape measure and check your waist!
