How Being Overweight Can Affect Your Love Life

Recently, actor Chris Pratt confessed that when he was overweight he had a lot of problems. When you look at Pratt, who is married to the beautiful actress Ana Faris, it’s hard to believe that he could have any problems at all. He was in one of the top movies around, Guardians of the Galaxy; he is married to a beautiful actress; and in 2014 he was on the cover of the “GQ Men of the Year” magazine. It seems that the fit and ripped actor has it all going on.

But this wasn’t always the case. He recently gave interviews stating that when he was 80 pounds overweight he told the UK magazine Men’s Health that he was “impotent, fatigued, emotionally depressed.” Chris Pratt is only 35 years old but being overweight can affect men of all ages. When you look at Pratt know he is far from being referred to as “Fat Pratt.”

Pratt was overweight for several years and finally had enough. He began eating a Paleo type diet and exercising and lost 80 pounds. When he was toting around that extra weight he admits to having a low sex drive. He just really lost interest in having sex and actually lost his initiative in other areas as well.

He had money, fame, and a hot wife and he let himself go. But he also decided to do something about it and the results are remarkable.

Don’t waste any more time being overweight, it’s never going to end up well. First of all, it just makes you feel uncomfortable. Your clothing doesn’t look good on you anymore. And these are just the less serious reasons. The longer you are overweight and the older you get, the more your health is compromised. You will be facing the prospects of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and a low sex drive. Just look at that list! The problem could be solved by just losing weight and the alternative is to swallow a mouthful of pills everyday to combat the negative health effects of your weight problem.  Yes – it could be that simple.

You will feel entirely better by just losing 10 percent of your body weight, so if you are weighing in at 220 pounds, a weight loss of 22 pounds will start making you feel better right away. You can stave off diabetes, your blood pressure should normalize, and if you are eating better your cholesterol will show it.  Having erectile dysfunction is different from having a low sex drive but losing weight is definitely a step in the right direction.

Young men think that they are invincible but more and more are being surprised to find they are facing heart problems at a young age. Having a heart attack in your early 40s in not unusual anymore. Isn’t it time you did yourself a favor and get yourself in the best shape you can?
