3 Reasons Why the Right Diet Can Save You Money on Healthcare

Do You Need Another Reason To Do The HCG Diet? Well It Just Might Save You More Than A Few Bucks On Healthcare! Check out this guest post written by Amelia Wood:

If you are struggling with your weight and having trouble losing the pounds, sometimes all it takes is a simple reminder about the importance of maintaining a healthy weight.

Most people look to diets for a quick fix in order to look better in clothes, feel more positive about their appearance or prepare for a big event. But, the real reason to go on a diet (and see it through!) is to reach a point of balance and good health. Not only will great health help you stay positive, it will also, believe it or not, help you save money on healthcare.

If you need any extra motivation to lose weight now, check out these simple reasons why losing weight can help you save: 

1. Avoid medical bills due to weight issues.

When you gain weight, you can definitely feel a difference. Your body becomes more sluggish, you don’t feel as happy, it’s more difficult to do daily activities, and you may even feel depressed. And, while an extra twenty pounds or so may not seem like enough to cause major disruptions to your health, that extra weight really can have a huge effect on your body as a whole. It also impacts your wallet in the form of medical costs. Not being in the best shape can cause greater risk of injury and greater risk of diseases associated with high weight, such as diabetes. Also, because your body has to work extra hard to maintain its own daily functions, it is also much easier to contract common diseases and can take much longer to completely heal. All of these factors combined can often lead to an increase in medical costs.

2. Reduce insurance premiums.

Not only will losing weight help you reduce your out-of-pocket medical bills, it will also reduce your insurance costs. When you enroll in an insurance policy, two of the questions asked will we your weight and height. When you provide your answers, your insurance company will calculate your BMI, or body mass index. This is the estimated proportion of normal ranges of weight compared to height. If you are way above or below a normal BMI, you will almost definitely be charged higher premiums by your insurance company, because there is a higher risk of medical issues in the future. According to eHealth , a recent study done on insurance premiums found that people with below average BMI scores paid around $169/month, people with normal weight paid $164/month, and people who were overweight paid $201/month. This is a 22.6% increase in premium costs if you are overweight, which can really add up.

3. Fortify long-term health.

The added pressures exerted on the body as a result of being overweight may not show their effects today or tomorrow, but ten to twenty years down the line, some real problems could occur. If you are overweight and don’t make the effort to lose the extra weight, you could come across problems that will affect both your health and your pocketbook. For example, many overweight people do has issues with the thyroid and diabetes, bone density loss and arthritis. Every little thing becomes a bit more difficult with age, and being overweight only adds to the stress on your body. While you will never know for sure, neglecting to lose weight can definitely lead to negative health consequences and higher medical costs in the long-term.

The only trouble is not everyone knows how Apple Days are supposed to be done. So today I thought we answer some of the more common questions that people ask about doing an HCG Diet Apple Day.
