Losing extra weight can enhance your appearance and self-esteem, and it can even bolster your health from head to toe. In fact, if you lose 5-10% of your extra weight, you’ll have:
Losing weight can lower your cholesterol by an average of five points*, and it also brings on a significant drop in triglycerides. Both of these factors combine to lower your risk of heart disease and other serious consequences of high cholesterol.
For many people, losing weight also lowers blood pressure by an average of 5 mmHg or more*. This could be enough to get you out of hypertension (high blood pressure). In addition, lowering your blood pressure reduces your risk of heart attack and other serious consequences.
People who have diabetes have consistently high blood sugar, and those at risk of diabetes typically have mildly elevated blood sugar (prediabetes). Losing extra weight may reduce your blood sugar level almost as effectively as oral diabetes medications that are made for that specific purpose.
You may also benefit from improved sleep quality, more energy, and even a decreased risk of some types of cancer when you lose weight. Many people also report an improvement in their mental health following medical weight loss.
