Why choose weight loss? Why now? Body Hormone Balance Systems

Why weight loss? Why now? The first question one has to ask is why do you want to lose weight? For some it is a question of aesthetics – “feeling and looking good”. For others it’s a question of health. They are already beginning to suffer or are worried about what obesity will do for their health, including their risk of diabetes, heart attack and disability.
