The Primal Blueprint is visited by most people who are trying to lose weight. Any advocate of a particular diet will essentially say the same thing if you ask them. Most individuals want to lose weight, fit into their clothes, and look good in their underwear. Interest in general fitness, health, and lifestyle tends to flow naturally from that. Arrive for the weight loss, stay for the eyewear that block blue light.

When weighed against other factors, weight loss is sometimes perceived as superficial. That is incorrect. It takes more than simply belt notches and satisfying mirror interactions to lose weight. It almost instantly improves health, happiness, and everyday functioning in quantifiable and, most crucially, concrete ways. It turns out that losing weight isn’t an easy feat.

Your joints no longer hurt as much

Although practically everyone has a joint that pops, creaks, hurts, or periodically flares up in agony, crippling osteoarthritis is a rather uncommon condition. Losing weight reduces the forces operating on your joints as you walk, with each pound you lose on your knee joint reducing the forces by a factor of four. However, this effect is slightly mitigated by increasing your walking speed. Losing weight reduces inflammation and increases activity in psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis patients, respectively. Having said that, losing weight may make joint hypermobility worse for those who have it.

Maybe you’re not quite that hungry.

This one is dependent upon how you go about losing weight. You may feel more hungry than you can handle if you’re starving yourself, imposing a low-fat, high-carb diet, or forcing yourself to cut calories in spite of your body’s constant need for additional food. On the other hand, you most likely won’t feel hungry if you follow a Primal diet, which emphasises nutrient density, lots of protein, lesser carbs, and greater fat. As a result of becoming fat-adapted, you’ll be able to go for hours without eating. You nibble on your fat tissue instead of whatever trash they put out in the office.

Your Sleep Improves

Whether it is by food and exercise combined or diet alone, losing weight—especially from the belly fat—seems to improve the quality of sleep. The best treatment (and preventive strategy) for sleep apnea is still losing weight, even minor weight loss can often completely cure the condition.

Exercise Seems Appealing Suddenly

The association between exercise and weight loss is really reversed, and that’s the real secret. Most individuals are shocked to learn that losing weight makes them want to move more, even while the correct types of exercise will undoubtedly increase the effectiveness of fat reduction and help you maintain lean mass while dieting. One explanation for this is because movement is less taxing on a lighter body. With those extra forty pounds off your shoulders, you can do more. You can run faster, leap farther, climb higher, trek for longer, and perform more pushups and pullups. Exerting yourself physically is more enjoyable and fulfilling when you are not carrying excess weight. Intrinsic incentive increases the likelihood of sticking to a fitness regimen, as we all know.

Your Groove Returns

Obesity and excess weight have a number of negative effects on libido. You become less confident. You no longer feel as appealing as you once did. Even logistical issues could arise. Additionally, being overweight or obese impairs the physiological mechanisms that facilitate sex. Testosterone falls, which has an impact on desire in both men and women. Reduced endothelial function makes it harder for some erogenous areas of the body to receive the blood flow they require. Your sex hormone levels return to normal as you begin to lose weight. Blood starts to flow again. Your desire reappears. Let’s be honest about this. When your body weight is healthier—not “skinny,” but healthy—you’ll feel more lustful and attract more of it.

You Have Clearer Thoughts

Adults who are obese and have minor cognitive impairment but reduce weight have improved cognitive performance. This might not always be the case. For example, college wrestlers who lose weight quickly experience (transient) cognitive impairments (memory and mood), and older persons who lose weight later in life are more likely to experience mild cognitive impairment; in that cohort, weight loss correlates with the development of Alzheimer’s disease. I believe that more lean mass is being lost than fat mass by these elderly people who are getting Alzheimer’s. Studies generally indicate that losing fat enhances mental health.

You’re More vigorous

All of a sudden, your body fat is becoming an almost limitless source of energy. Your energy is astonishingly steady when your insulin is under control and you are able to burn fat when needed. Burning fat for energy is what happens when you lose body fat, and it burns cleanly. The consistent flow of energy that comes with fat loss is significantly more satisfying than the fluctuations that come with receiving regular glucose infusions.

You Generate More Output

Research reveals—with some reservation—that losing weight increases worker productivity. This is partly a psychological issue. You feel and look better, and your general uplifted attitude carries over into increased self-assurance and productivity at work. It’s also physiological, though. You’re getting better sleep. You’re more energised. You have clearer thinking.

Your Medical Appointments Proceed More Easily

Extensive research indicates that reducing body weight enhances various indicators. Even while you might not notice an improvement in your blood pressure, reduced oxidation of your LDL cholesterol, decreased inflammation, or an abundance of HDL particles in your blood, lab testing and doctor visits will reveal improvements in your health markers.

One thing you may note about all these changes is that many of them are caused by weight reduction, and many of them also prolong it. You grow more muscle and lose more fat as a result of exercising more, which also makes it more enjoyable and less taxing on your joints. Your sex life improves when you lose weight, so you quit indulging in junk food to satiate your cravings and lose even more weight. Improved sleep leads to reduced cravings for junk food, more insulin sensitivity, and quicker recovery from workouts, all of which promote additional fat loss.

Loss of fat sets things in motion. After those initial pounds shed, everything starts to get better. All the other beneficial adjustments to your healthy lifestyle are simpler, more successful, and more long-lasting when you lose weight.
