Even modest weight loss can mean big benefits


A modest reduction of 5-10 percent of your body weight can result in health benefits, for example, reductions in blood cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. 1

For instance, if the weight of your body is 200 pounds 5 percent loss in weight amounts to 10lbs, which brings your weight to 190lbs. Although your weight might remain within that "overweight" or "obese" category, this small weight loss will reduce the risk of developing the chronic diseases that are associated with obesity.

If the overall target seems daunting, consider it as a process rather than a destination. You'll discover new food and exercise methods that can assist you in living an active and healthy lifestyle. These habits can assist you in maintaining your weight loss as time passes.

For instance for instance, the National Weight Control Registry observed that study participants who experienced substantial weight loss experienced improvements in their physical well-being, physical mobility, energy levels as well as general mood and confidence in their own abilities.
