The Overweight Body: How Excess Fat Effects Your Organs

The Overweight Body: How Excess Fat Effects Your Organs

One of the greatest dangers of being overweight and carrying so much excess body fat is that this fat can start to influence the way in which all your organs function.

While you may be strictly focused on how badly you think that excess body fat makes you look, never discount the importance of the role it will play on your overall body functioning.

Let’s have a closer look at some of the main issues associated with excess fat and your organs.

Reproductive System

The first group of organs that will be impacted by excess body fat is the reproductive system.  Males who are overweight may not have properly functioning reproductive organs and may in fact become infertile.

If a male is very overweight and the couple is having trouble conceiving, this definitely should be looked into as this could be the primary reason why.

For females, having too much excess body fat can also pose a problem. Typically the major issues lie in too little body fat for women, which causes menstruation to stop, but too much body fat in some extreme cases can do so as well.

The Digestive System

The second group of organs that will be impacted by excess weight is your digestive system.  When so much body fat has accumulated the liver and pancreas will not function as effectively, and if there is constantly a high intake of glucose rich foods coming into the body which is what’s contributing to the weight gain in the first place, the pancreas may start to become very overworked as it puts insulin production into overdrive and this could set you up for long-term health problems such as the development of diabetes.

Maintaining a healthier diet with all the vital nutrients the body needs along with sufficient dietary fibre will help to keep the digestive system organs in proper working order.

Cardiovascular System

Finally, the last group of organs that will really be impacted by excess body fat is your cardiovascular system organs.

The blood vessels may start to experience an increase in plaque build-up as high cholesterol levels start taking place in the body and the heart is going to have to work harder and harder to transport all that additional body weight around.

This can eventually place a great deal of strain on this system and lead to heart disease or even heart attack.

Working to maintain a healthier body weight is important for good cardiovascular function and often this is one of the biggest benefits you see upon losing excess weight – your heart condition improves.

So there you have just a few of the different organ systems that will be impacted when you begin to grow overweight.

Being overweight is much more than just about looks. If you’re not careful there could be some serious health problems that you put yourself up to experience in the long run if you don’t take steps to get the weight problem under control.

To achieve better dietary success this time around, eat a diet that’s rich in lean proteins, high in fruits and vegetables, and that contains moderate amounts of healthy fats such as nuts, nut butters, fatty fish, and olive oil.
