Reasons to Control your Weight, It´s Really Important
Why is it necessary to control your weight ?
Well, nowadays obesity is considered as a real public health problema because its presence may cause several diseases such as: atherosclerosis, dyslipidemia, heart attack, diabetes, etc. But it is also true that it affects people in another important level which is self-esteem. It is true, obesity takes from us precious moments that never come back.
Enjoy a great body and good health are gifts that only you can give to yourself and it takes a personal decision. I´m sure you watched “ The biggest Loser “ ? Remember Ali Vincent ? She made it, and so you can. Thank you Ali for being such an inspiration.
