Usually, when some people hear the word “you need to burn some fat”, a number of reasons why they should do that pop up in our mind.
They could think about doing it so that they can look slick, more beautiful or handsome and reduce the risk of Heart diseases.
They may also think about burning body fat because they are tired of the insecurities, jokes, lectures and shaming about being fat.
But I say to you, forget all of these reasons for a second. Forget the whys and all the issues that come with Fat.
Because here are 5 important reasons why you need to burn some Fat. Minus all these other reasons.
1.Reduce The Risk Of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that causes the sufferer to lose Cartilage and it gradually destroys the joint bones.
Normally, arthritis is a disease of old people, but Fat people are also likely to suffer from it.
But the case in fat people is that your joints hurt, so you move less. And moving less means your joints don’t get loaded.
Less joint loading means muscle weakness. Muscle weakness means force doesn’t get cushioned correctly.
Less cushion means the condition worsens. And more osteoarthritis means more pain.
2.Prevent Sleep Apnea
A fat person is at the risk of having Sleep Apnea.
Sleep Apnea is a condition where the upper airway collapses during sleep, thereby cutting off the oxygen tunnel and the person can no longer breathe properly.
The person struggles to breathe, and they stop breathing over and over again as they sleep.
3. So That You Can Taste Better
Fat alters your taste perceptions. This makes you taste most foods differently and taste some foods better than others.
You can also taste food that is high in Sugar and Fat better than vegetables and foods lacking those substances, So you crave more fatty and sugary foods.
Less fat means that you can taste and eat healthier foods.
4. To Reduce The Risk Of Infections
Losing fat means that you can have a healthier, stronger and robust immune system.
But an excessive amount of fat causes a weak immune system. This means that you are predisposed to tons of infections like Gum, Nose and Sinus, Stomach and Herpes infection (mouth sores).
5. To Be Able To Survive Surgery And Child Birth
Fat people have more sickness and injuries that require surgery. But they are also more likely to have complications during and after an operation.
They are harder to intubate, have a high risk of Incisional Hernia Post-Laprascopy (popping open again).
The operation time is longer for them and they can also develop Catheter site infection.
Also, 50 percent of Obese pregnant women must undergo Caesarean sections, compared to only about 20 percent of the general population.
Even if they do give birth vaginally, obese women may need to have more instruments and medical procedures involved.
And after surgery, mothers with obesity may end up with more surgical site infection.
