Weight Loss Health Benefits

The greater the weight loss, the greater the improvements in these risk factors.

Reduce your risk of cancer

Obesity is a risk factor for certain types of cancer, including endometrial, esophageal, pancreatic and breast cancer. There are a few reasons that carrying extra weight can increase your risk of cancer. One is that there is too much inflammation in the body. Another, the fat cells themselves stimulate hormones that may affect cancer cell growth. Losing weight helps reduce your risk, and regular exercise can also be beneficial in preventing cancer.

Ditch the diabetes

Carrying extra weight is also a risk factor for diabetes, so it makes sense that losing a little can help reduce your risk.In a study, obese individuals with type 2 diabetes who followed a calorie-restricted diet of 600 calories per day for eight weeks effectively reversed their diabetes, bringing their blood sugar into normal range.

Give your heart some help

Being overweight is a risk factor on its own for heart disease. But losing a little bit of weight can help your heart by decreasing other risk factors as well. Overweight and obese individuals with type 2 diabetes who lost about 5 to 10 percent of their weight improved their blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides.
