Have you given up the battle of the bulge? Do you feel it’s not even worth trying any more? Good news! Losing a measly 10 pounds can have profound effects on your health, sex life and even your pocket book.
Here’s a look at how you can gain a lot by losing just 10:
1. Improved Intimacy with Your Spouse
Losing just 10 lbs. can improve the desire & intimacy of your marriage, which is directly impacted by high blood pressure and diabetes. For men, it can help with erectile dysfunction, a problem that affects four out of five men who are overweight.
2. Lower Cholesterol
LDL, the bad cholesterol, is affected by carrying too much weight. Losing just 10 lbs. can lower it by more than 10%.
3. Lower Blood Pressure
When you drop just 10 lbs., you can reduce your blood pressure, which in turn protects your heart and kidneys and lessens your chance of a stroke or heart attack.
4. Reduced Chance of a Heart Attack
You automatically reduce your chances up to an astounding 50% of suffering a heart attack when you lose even 10 lbs.
5. Reduced Chance of Developing Dementia
Losing 10 lbs. cuts back on belly fat, one of the sources of chemicals implicated in dementia. It also reduces the chance of a stroke, another cause of dementia, by reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, each of which are also tied to Alzheimer’s disease.
6. Lower Chance of Sleep Apnea
Obesity is one of the prime causes of sleep apnea, which in turn is tied to a host of other health problems. Losing 10 lbs. can help you get a good night’s sleep and avoid this problem.
7. Less Joint Pain
A single pound of extra weight adds three times that much pressure on your joints. Ouch! Losing a mere 10 lbs. can ease the pressure and reduce your odds of developing osteoarthritis by as much as 50%.
8. Lower Chance of Cancer
With each extra pound, your risk of cancer increases. Likewise, when you lose the weight, your chance of developing an array of cancers goes down.
9. Lower Chance of Diabetes
You body becomes less sensitive to insulin the more weight you carry, leading directly to diabetes. Losing just 10 lbs. can lower your chances up to 60%.
10. Reduced Medication Dosage
Losing 10 lbs. is often enough to improve your health to the point that your doctor can reduce your prescription, saving you money.
11. Cushion Your Wallet
If you slash just 100 calories each day—think 18 Cheez-Its–from your diet, you save an average of $175.20 a year.
BONUS: You’ll Feel better!
Weight loss, even 10 lbs., lets your liver recover from the effects of the fat that can clog it. The result is better health and more energy.
