Dr. Becky’s Health Done Right plan teaches you how your weight plays a significant role in cancer, heart disease, and inflammation.
Excess weight can contribute to asthma and obstructive sleep apnea, both complicated diseases that can be difficult to manage. Our fat cells produce inflammatory cells that attack the lungs making breathing hard. Obstructive sleep apnea is a disorder in which breathing stops or pauses, periodically while one is sleeping. Excess weight blocks the airways during sleeping because the soft tissue of the throat and mouth are relaxed.
Gastrointestinal problems such as constipation, chronic stomachaches, bloating and gas, gallbladder disease, heartburn and fatty liver disease are more common with excess weight. The relationship between digestive problems and excess weight is important, because the food that causes weight gain may also make us feel sick.
Skin, Muscle and Bone Problems
Joint pain, arthritis, and chronic back pain are just a few of the conditions exacerbated by excess weight. Another issue related to muscle is urinary incontinence, or a leaking bladder, which is certainly no fun, and can limit a person’s daily routine.
Heart and Circulatory System Problems
This category will come as no surprise, there is a clear connection between obesity and your heart. Excess weight contributes to diseases including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, pulmonary embolism and stroke. If currently being treated by a physician for any of these conditions, losing just 5% of your body mass can make a substantial health improvement.
Brain and Memory Problems
Severe headaches, including migraine headaches, and Alzheimer’s disease, can be caused by excess weight.
Diabetes and Prediabetes
Carrying extra weight is often a pre-cursor for diabetes. Excess carbs and sugar, foods that increase weight gain, also contribute to the development of prediabetes. Prediabetes occurs when sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough for the diagnosis of diabetes. Prediabetics are at high risk of developing the full-blown condition.
The higher a person’s BMI, and the longer a person is overweight, the greater their risk of developing the following 13 cancers: post-menopausal breast, uterine (endometrial), ovarian, colorectal, gallbladder, kidney, esophageal, stomach, thyroid, pancreatic, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and meningioma (a type of brain tumor). A large study showed a 7 % increase in cancer risk for every decade of being obese or overweight.

The great news is that depending on the medical condition, just a 5 to 10 % weight loss will reduce or eliminate the risk or condition. In other words, small weight losses can result in significant health gains.
