Weight Loss and CholesterolThe correlation between weight and cholesterol are imminent, as being overweight can lead to higher than normal cholesterol levels, which can lead to increased risk factors of other disorders including cardiovascular events, stroke and blood clots. Cholesterol is found within fat in the body and therefore decreasing the fat within the body can also decrease the levels of cholesterol that pose a threat to the body.
Adverse types of cholesterol can easily accumulate within the body when an individual is overweight – and therefore with weight loss a decrease in the ‘bad’ cholesterol levels that can leave an individual in better health can occur.
Weight loss is often a preferred method to lowering cholesterol as opposed to an individual resorting to medication which can help to regulate the cholesterol. These types of medications are often correlated with multiple adverse effects that can especially affect the liver as one of the main organs within the body.
