Are you struggling with weight gain or resistant weight loss? You are not alone! It is estimated that up to 70% of Canadians are overweight or obese. A 2004 study called the Canadian Community Health Survey found that 29% of Canadians 18 years of age or older were obese and 41% more were overweight.
Healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Although I agree that thin does not mean healthy, the impact of unwanted weight is profound both physically and mentally. Physically, excess weight puts strain on our joints and can contribute to arthritis, and it can put strain on the circulatory system resulting in high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart disease.
