Can You Save Money if You Lose Weight?
There are plenty of health incentives to losing weight... reduced risk of heart disease and other deadly conditions, more energy, better sleep, just to name a few.

But what if you could reap financial incentives for shedding extra pounds?

If you have 30 or more pounds to lose, there are financial benefits for which you may be eligible.

Before you jump into a diet and exercise regimen, however, you need to consider safety. For instance, if you are overweight or obese, certain exercises may be dangerous for you to perform right off the bat. Slow and steady is the way to start, until you develop more athleticism and endurance.

Special guest and sports cardiologist, John Higgins, MD, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss the safest ways to exercise if you have more than 30 pounds to lose, as well as the incredible financial incentives waiting for you.
