Losing Weight May Add Years to Your Life
New studies confirm that obesity is on the rise, bringing with it a greater risk of diabetes and a lower life expectancy.
Overweight linked with premature death
In January 2003, the Journal of the American Medical Association featured a study that found that
obesity appears to lessen life expectancy, especially among young adults. The researchers compared
Body-Mass Index (BMI) to longevity and found a correlation between premature death and higher BMIs.
For example, a 20-year-old white male, 5’10” weighing 288 pounds with a BMI of greater than 40 was
estimated to lose 13 years of his life as a result of obesity. While this study referenced extreme levels of
obesity, there are still millions of overweight Americans with a life expectancy rate that is three to five years
less than their healthy-weight counterparts.
