When it comes to weight loss, many of us think that we must lose 50+ Lbs to have major benefits on our health. This is not true at all.
Losing 10 lbs can reduce heart attack risk by over 50%.
Losing 8 lbs can significantly decrease your risk of carcinogenic hormones
Losing 10 lbs reduces risk of type II diabetes by 60%
Losing just 10 lbs can cure sleep apnea
Erectile dysfunction is reported by 80% of overweight or obese men
Cutting just 100 calories a day could prevent or eliminate 71.2 million cases of obesity and save $58 billion annually in the United States
This is especially true when the quality of food and lifestyle choices is better. Just losing 10 lbs with medication or surgery does not give you the same advantage. In fact, when you engage in lifestyle behavior and commit it to a habit, this is when you have a complete long term result on both your weight loss and health.
Don’t ever underestimate the power of losing those first 10 lbs and committing this to a long term habit.
