Managing a healthy weight becomes increasingly difficult the older we get. The combination of declining hormone levels and declining levels of physical activity leads to an inevitable increase in our body fat and a corresponding decrease in our muscle mass as we age, unless we undertake a serious plan to stay ahead of the problem.

It is common to see notable improvements in most of these measurements over time with weight loss. Even modest losses in body fat can result in significant improvements in blood cholesterol, C-Reactive Protein (CRP), blood pressure, blood sugar, and liver function tests if abnormalities were present initially. Many problems with sleep, including obstructive sleep apnea, problems with arthritis, especially knee pain, and problems with elevated blood sugar and insulin resistance improve greatly through a program of healthy weight loss.
