Medical experts agree that excess weight can take a heavy toll on the body and mind. Obesity can affect nearly every aspect of a person’s health, from respiratory and reproductive functions to mood and memory. Carrying extra pounds exerts mechanical stress on the body and results in complex changes to the endocrine system and metabolism. There is no question that obesity can decrease both length and quality of life and contribute to a number of serious health issues.
