I am shocked at the article I read this morning about how Doctors treat overweight women. This is why I want to help as many women get healthy! I am not saying you have to be as fit as an Olympic athlete, I am just saying that you should want to be HEALTHY!
It’s shocking, but it’s true: Being a woman who’s more than 20 pounds overweight may actually hike your risk of getting poor medical treatment. In fact, weighing too much can have surprising — and devastating — health repercussions beyond the usual diabetes and heart-health concerns you’ve heard about for years.

●Are at higher risk of being misdiagnosed or receiving inaccurate dosages of drugs
●Are less likely to find a fertility doctor who will help you get pregnant
●Are less likely to have cancer detected early and get effective treatment for it
