Reduction of excess body fat plays an important role in maintaining good health and fighting disease. Excess body fat leads to major physical threats like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. You take more energy to breathe because your heart has to work hard to pump blood to the lungs and also to the excess fat throughout the body. This can cause your heart to become enlarged and also result in high blood pressure and abnormal heartbeats.
Excess body fat also can have high cholesterol levels and it will lead to narrowing of the arteries. When blood vessels are blocked the most important organs like the brain, heart and kidneys wll not get a proper blood circulation. This poses several health risks like heart attack, kidney failure, and stroke.
So, reducing body fat reduces the risk of disease.
Big time!!!! Not only does it reduce disease, it also aids in healing. Fat people, do not heal as well as their counterparts. It takes a lot more time, because adipose tissue is highly vascular. Dissecting and cauterizing through layers and layers of fat; well it's gross, smells horribly, and is difficult to keep clean. Obese patient's are more prone to have higher surgical site infections because of it.
The title of your question and then your answer doesn't really match as your post doesn't actually say how to get rid of body fat?
You raise some excellent points so I hope you don't mind me finishing off your post with a couple of quick tips from a registered personal trainer from Adelaide, Australia.
Depending on your level of fitness and experience with exercise, this will determine the level of intensity at which you can perform any exercise, whether that be cardio, bodyweight or weight training and these form the basis of pretty much any exercise program.
Some tips for weight loss:
- Eat nutrient rich food
- Removed as much processed food and drink from your diet as possible
- Get more movement in your lifestyle through exercise, walking, sport, etc.
- Turn off your TV
- Control portion sizes
- Avoid meal replacements, suppplements, fads, gimmicks, weight loss pills and drinks - Don't waste your time or money.
Hope these help.
