What if I just lose 5% of my weight?
If you are more than a few pounds overweight, losing weight can seem like a daunting task.
It’s important to realise that even a 5% weight loss will have a beneficial effect on your overall health.
5% or more is the magic number to get some of these health benefits:
- feeling better – both physically and mentally
- exercise is easier
- reduce risk of arthritis
- less joint pain
- lower risk of cancer
- reduce risk of type 2 diabetes
- improved asthma symptoms
- reduce blood pressure
- improvement in sleep apnoea symptoms
- possible improvements in fertility
Setting a target of 5% weight loss is a good place to start when you are really trying to improve your health. Once you’ve reached your 5% target you can set another goal, like another 5%. Use the health benefits as you experience them as your motivation to keep going.
