More Weight Loss, Better Health Benefits

Losing more than a fifth of one’s body weight may significantly increase the chances of good metabolic health compared to losing just a little weight, researchers say. In the study, which used data from over 7,600 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, those who lost between five and ten percent of their weight were 22 percent less likely to have metabolic syndrome, which increases risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Participants who lost more than 20 percent lowered their risk by 53 percent.
