Jenny Craig Weight Loss Health Benefits

Everyone makes the decision to lose weight for their own reasons. Some Jenny Craig clients say they were finding it difficult to buy clothes in their size or that they had an upcoming event they wanted to look good for.

Extensive studies have revealed that visceral fat, that is fat on your belly which also surrounds your organs, is linked to serious health issues such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.

You may have already suffered a health scare, or perhaps your doctor has said you need to lose weight as a preventative measure. Regardless, there are many more significant weight loss health benefits to be realised when you join Jenny Craig.

What are the health benefits of weight loss?

When we talk about weight loss health benefits, we often think just of our physical body. Certainly, the health benefits of weight loss to your body are extensive and highly important. It is not just the organs like your heart, lungs, skin, liver, pancreas and others that are compromised, but also your joints, bones, ligaments and cartilage are all put under additional strain when you carry excess weight, contributing to diseases such as osteoarthritis and spine degeneration. Your knees, ankles, hips and your back are all placed under great strain by extra weight.

Evidence shows that being overweight can affect fertility and that being overweight during pregnancy can increase the rates of miscarriage, difficult labours and carry greater risk to the mother and her baby.

The Jenny Craig weight loss program provides education, strategic direction, and dedicated support enabling you to get into the right frame of mind to lose the weight and keep it off for life.

What are the mental health benefits of weight loss?

The mental health benefits of weight loss are a highly important component in your weight loss journey.

When you are overweight exercise is harder. It’s a little bit of chicken and the egg – if you exercise more you will lose more weight, but the excess weight may make you feel lethargic, depressed, and unmotivated to exercise. People who are overweight or obese have been shown to suffer from depression, anxiety, insecurity and a lack of self-confidence.

But studies indicate that fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression are experienced by people who have a regular exercise regime. Exercise is considered to be a highly effective way to improve your mood and your mental health. It can help relieve stress, depression, anxiety and insomnia.

The Jenny Craig weight loss program provides education, strategic direction, and dedicated support enabling you to get into the right frame of mind to lose the weight and keep it off for life.

The provision of a dedicated Jenny Craig Consultant to provide you with support adds accountability to your weight loss program, meaning you are more likely to push yourself a little harder with respect to diet and exercise to meet your goals, resulting in a fitter body and mind.

How can you lose weight in a healthy way?

When you are losing weight through increased activity and exercise combined with a weight loss meal plan, you are not only shedding kilograms but also improving your muscle tone, strengthening your joints and improving your mental health.

The Jenny Craig Accredited Practising Dietitians and Nutritionists have developed menus which are high in essential nutrients. A balanced diet full of vitamins and minerals helps your body to burn calories while regulating your appetite and your stress hormones such as cortisol. A good healthy diet helps improve your digestion while decreasing inflammation.

By learning how to control your portion sizes and make good food choices when it comes to nutrition you will experience weight loss health benefits as you lose weight gradually and consistently, while retraining your brain into a healthy and sustainable way of eating for life.

How much weight should you lose to experience health benefits?

The amount of weight you need to lose to experience health benefits is dependent on your body and your current state of health, but even a small amount of weight loss such as five per cent of your total weight will bring some health benefits.

A small amount of weight loss can provide health benefits such as lower cholesterol levels, decreased blood pressure, lower risk of cardiovascular disease and can also decrease your risk of contracting certain types of cancer.

If your weight is impacting on your joints you will benefit from losing enough weight to take the stress off your skeletal system.

The Jenny Craig weight loss health benefits include increased physical and mental health and wellbeing. As you build a stronger, fitter and healthier mind and body you will celebrate reaching your weight loss milestones and eventually your lifetime sustainable goal weight.
