I think for the worst thing about excess weight is becoming pre-diabetic, and realizing all the complications weight does to oneself. High Triglycerides( fat in the blood) Possible srtoke or heart attack, vision complications, kidney and liver complications, gum disease and a host of other problems. I have changed my life for good and will lose weight...I'm down 46lbs in 8 months. Even though I am pre-diabetic I live and eat like I have diabetes.
Wish I knew more about how foods can heal at an earlier age.
