🏃♀ TAKE CARE OF YOUR KNEES 🏃♂
When it comes to arthritis knee pain 😞, losing weight can really pay off 💪 🙏
In fact, losing 10 pounds can take tens of millions of pounds of pressure off the knees every year 🛳 🚤
Why is this important?
Less pressure on a knee joint means less friction potentially damaging to the cartilage, i.e. between the bones of the knee joint 😉
Experts estimate that for every pound you weigh, your knees feel the force of 3 pounds of pressure as you take a step 🥵
1 lb of body weight = 3 lb of pressure on one knee / step
10 lbs too much = 30 lbs of knee pressure / extra step!
For an average of 5,000 steps / day, this makes:
5,000 steps X 30 lbs of pressure = 150,000 lbs of pressure on the knees per day too much 😰😱
Hum … for 365 days, that’s 54M pounds of excess pressure 🥵
In short, losing 10 pounds can make a difference of almost 54 million pounds of pressure on your knees each year … 👍😚
With what we now know about effective rapid weight loss techniques, I urge you to reach your healthy weight … You will kill more than 2 birds with 1 stone, guaranteed 😊
Bonne santé 😊
