Obesity shortens life expectancy by 10-15 years

The quality of life and its duration also decrease by 10-15 years with improper diet and a sedentary lifestyle, the expert states.

“Obese men are more dependent on sugar than women. Remember that sugar accelerates aging, including skin aging. Moreover, sweet food increases the risk of developing breast cancer,” warned Mikhail Ginzburg, MD.

He advises putting less sugar in tea and coffee and replacing some of the drinks with milk, kefir, or fermented baked milk. We should also give up different desserts. “Reduce your intake of red meat. It is desirable to replace it with fish or white poultry meat. Add vegetables, fruits, berries and nuts to your diet. Eat more such fibrous foods as buckwheat, oatmeal and coarse bread. White bread should be excluded,” says the nutritionist.

In addition, a good active regime is very important; sports, regular walks in the fresh air and adequate sleep improve metabolism and lead to weight loss.
