(NaturalNews) In a study published in The Lancet: Diabetes and Endocrinology, findings suggest that "losing weight at any age can result in long-term cardiovascular health benefits, and support public health strategies and lifestyle modifications that help individuals who are overweight or obese to lose weight at all ages." (1)

This study reinforces that shedding extra pounds is linked to improved health, and that, cliche as it may sound, it's never too late to start.

In the study, led by a team of British researchers, men and women's weight changes and cardiovascular health were monitored over the course of 60 years, starting from their birth in 1946 (2). The study noted that the longer a person was overweight in adulthood, the more their chances of having cardiovascular health problems like increased blood pressure and diabetes rose later in life. However, it also showed that individuals who lost weight, even if they regained it and lost it again, were able to lessen those risks.

Just a 10-pound weight loss can improve heart, overall health

In fact, Dr. Oz explains that losing just 10 pounds contributes to better health. As an example, his site explains that the average American woman has a body mass index (BMI) of 28, rendering here nearly obese (3). A weight loss of merely 10 pounds can protect the kidneys, reduce the risk of heart attacks, improve sleep, diminish joint pain and even help prevent the onset of dementia (3).

Establishing an exercise plan is beneficial when trying to lose weight, as are eating healthy foods such as oatmeal, apples and cauliflower (4). Cauliflower, for example, contains high levels of vitamin C, which has been shown to burn more fat during exercise. Apples are ideal for weight loss since they have a high water content and contain insoluble fiber, both of which play a role in keeping cravings at bay. As for oatmeal, studies from the University of California, Berkeley, have shown that those eating it for breakfast had a lower BMI than those who ate other foods to start their day (4).

As always, choose fresh, organic options.
