Everyone tends to gravitate toward weight loss for one reason: losing those extra pounds. But what if dropping weight could mean more than just buying a new wardrobe, not having to loosen or take out those pants or seeing a number on the scale that is more to your liking.
Sure, weight loss and exercise go hand in hand and by staying diligent with the latter, you'll achieve the former. Weight loss feels good, mostly because you equate it to being able to feel better about how you fit into your clothes and how you look, quite frankly, in the mirror.
But those who have lost weight realize that the pounds shed isn't the only benefit to the endeavor that is joining a gym, starting to take classes, walking around the neighborhood or simply starting a DVD at home.
Extra weight is a killer for those who suffer from a variety of ailments, and allergies rank at the top of that list. Additional weight leads to obesity and being overweight, which is directly related to anything from increased risk of heart disease or cancer to the always and ever present diabetes or other afflictions of that ilk, including digestive problems.
Being overweight is tough on your adrenal glands and that will spur your allergies to go haywire, so exercise can help curb those symptoms.
