Weight Loss & Your Lungs

from Betty Kamen, PhD, and Dr. Michael Rosenbaum, MD

Weight reduction can improve lung function and exercise capacity in overweight women.

Overweight women often limit their exercise or activity level because they experience shortness of breath, so they have difficulty losing weight. But even moderate weight loss results in easier breathing and increased exercise capacity. Of course, the more weight lost, the better the improvements in lung function.

Many overweight people are diagnosed with asthma due to their asthma-like symptoms of reduced lung function, wheezing, and shortness of breath, when, in actuality, their symptoms are caused by pressure on the respiratory system due to excess weight. But increased lung function usually occurs with weight loss due to stress reduction on the respiratory system.

Obesity has a significant impact on nearly every system in the body, leading to such conditions as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and respiratory complications.

[Reports have been pouring in about the success of the California Calcium Countdown plan. Medical journal studies (referenced in the book) support the claims for calcium helping weight reduction. In fact, it may be the only current book on dieting that has so much medical validation.]
