Gaining Perspective On Losing Weight

A Little Weight Loss May Ease Sleep Apnea

Pavement Runner (@PavementRunner) February 20, 2014 Sometimes it is hard for us to expand the lens through which we see. And so this morning, with the exchange with PavementRunner in the back of my head, I stepped on the scale. Instead of my heart sinking seeing only .8 lb lost, I took a breath and reminded myself that the woman who started this weight loss journey 80 pounds heavier should be PUMPED she is only about 15 pounds garcinia cambogia away from her goal. An ugly run is better than no run, PavementRunner said.

Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women Because of Course They Do

YES. All of the weight loss. According to an article from CNN via upwave (a website I originally spelled as “upgrave,” which wouldn’t be a website about health but a place for people to purchase high-class graves), men absolutely have an easier time losing weight than women. At least, they do at first: It’s easier for men to drop pounds quickly, but “Over the long-term, the playing field is more equal,” explained dietician David Grotto.

“Our approach to treating obstructive sleep apnea is always to address any weight issues. We have many examples of when patients lose weight their snoring and apnea reduces significantly,” Liberatore said. “A proactive approach is even better. Telling and showing patients how weight gain — even modest amounts — can and will lead to sleep apnea is a powerful message.” Although the new study showed a connection between weight loss and improved sleep apnea symptoms, it did not prove a cause-and-effect link.
