Why being a healthy weight is important

The problem with being overweight is not about how you look. Carrying excess weight increases the risk of many diseases… chronic ones and worse, potentially lethal diseases. These include: cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and ostheo-arthritis. Generally, the more body fat you have, the higher the risk to your health.

A common problem is carrying excess weight in your middle. Fortunately the right weight can be achieved through healthy eating and regular exercise. Plus there are plenty of health and wellness products on the market for all kinds of health goals: losing weight, building muscle, feeling more energetic, etc.

QNET has recently introduced their weight management range called InShape, comprising a toning belt, toning gel, energy jelly, and meal shakes. I’m always skeptical of products that claim to burn fat when you hardly break a sweat, but the InShape toning belt (for your abs) claims to have a unique 3-in-1 feature using:

1) Electrical Muscular Stimulation technology that delivers electronic impulses to stimulate your nerves and contract your muscles, the same way as if you were doing crunches.

2) Far Infrared Radiation to raise your body temperature.

3) Vibrating massages to force muscles to contract and relax.

The InShape toning belt works with the toning gel. Nutrition-wise, the energy jelly is meant to give you an energy boost, whilst the meal shakes work as meal replacement drinks and come in two flavours: chocolate and vegetable soup. A main course and dessert, anyone?
