We often hear about weight affecting our health. Being overweight puts us at a greater risk for serious and life-threatening conditions like heart disease, diabetes or stroke.   Being underweight means that we’re not getting the nutrients we need, which can cause respiratory and digestive problems, and osteoporosis.
