Ten Percent

When you’re overweight or obese, getting down to a healthy size can feel extremely daunting.
Instead of setting your sights on a major weight loss goal, focus on something more realistic, like losing 10 percent of your body weight.
New research suggests that dropping as little as 10 percent of your weight can reduce your risk of developing diabetes by 58 percent.
 Even better: The benefits remained for a decade, whether or not dieters gained back their weight.
To lose weight, the study’s participants tracked everything they ate, emptied their houses of unhealthy food, and worked exercise into their routines.
