What happens if you lose weight?


One huge study of obese adults with a mean age of 50 found that a weight loss of 2kg in those with BMI over 25 was associated with improved memory and attention (Sabia et al., 2019).

So many other health problems are linked to obesity including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Do you know your BMI- if not, ask your GP to check your weight on your next visit. If your numbers are high, ask your GP for advice on how to make some lifestyle changes.
