There are different reasons that contribute to this but one of the biggest reasons is because you are carrying less weight around. If you were to take a backpack and fill it with a few pounds of rocks and go walking or hiking it wouldn’t take long to start feeling tired and sluggish, but if you were to take the backpack off you would soon find yourself feeling lighter and moving around easier. This is close to the same feeling you get going from 220 pounds to 200 pounds.
Now if you’re losing weight then generally you would be engaged in some type of exercise whether that be just jogging for 30-40 minutes every other day or doing some form of high intensity training. Whichever one you are doing you will find yourself feeling better and have more energy after the exercise because of an increase in your metabolism and endorphins. Endorphins are a chemical produced by the body to help elevate your mood and because it helps elevate your mood it makes you feel more energetic after a workout.
Weight loss has proven to be good for your energy levels and overall health. When you lose weight, you put less stress on your joints, bones, and muscles and as a result it becomes easier to move around and do daily activities. Weight loss combined with exercise and a healthy diet can make a big difference in how you feel each day, and give you the energy you need.
