The Healthy Pastor: When “Middleweight” is a Bad Word

51vgqldEQML“I can’t overstate the importance of losing excess belly fat. Not only is it one of the single best indicators for almost every serious health condition imaginable, but being overly heavy around the middle also greatly impacts your quality of life. Belly weight zaps your energy and makes it hard to participate fully in what’s going on around you. Men, excess belly weight is also tied directly to lower testosterone. Plus, it’s the primary cause of sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders.

While is has become a common look, extra weight around your middle is not inevitable. You can turn the tide; you can get this number down. As you do, your life will improve exponentially.”

– Nelson Searcy, Steve Reynolds & Jennifer Dykes Henson
