The definition of STAMINA: “the ability to sustain prolonged physical or mental effort.”

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your stamina? I suppose for most people, including me, age plays a major role in your answer. Personally, I think back to when I was in my 20’s-30’s and had lots more stamina than I do now in my early 60’s. Aside from age, health contributes in a major way to a person’s sense of stamina.

There is no doubt whatsoever that weight control heightens a person’s stamina. There are several reasons for this: Weight control improves cardiopulmonary performance. When the mechanics of breathing become easier more prolonged physical effort is noticed. Additionally, weight control allows the weight-bearing joints (backs, hips, knees, ankles) to function easier resulting in prolonged physical effort.

Does weight control improve the ability to sustain higher mental efforts? Absolutely: Pretty much everyone that loses lots of weight notices much higher levels of energy and alertness. These most certainly translate into higher levels of stamina.

There is no turning back the chronological clock. However, there is the potential to turn back the number on the scale. Lose that weight!
