Weight

If you are overweight, you may feel tired, lacking in energy or experience breathing problems. You may have difficulty sleeping or get complaints from your partner that you snore. Perhaps you sweat a lot compared with other people or experience back and joint pains which can affect your mobility?

Being overweight also leads to diabetes, heart disease and cancer, and people dying needlessly from avoidable diseases.
