Reduce Belly Fat in 2017!

Weight Loss Percentage


Improving your health

What weight loss percentage is enough to start improving your health?

Everyone needs encouragement when they start a new diet to lose weight and get rid of that dangerous belly fat (abdominal adipose cells).

One way to appreciate your own dieting efforts is to learn the health benefits from losing those first few pounds.

More than 5% weight loss

The health benefits shown when people lose more than 5% of excess fat include:

  • up to 41% reduction in the size of abdominal adipose cells

  • significant improvements in appetite chemicals like leptin

  • significant improvements in insulin and glucose metabolism (Varady, Degree of weight loss required to improve adipokine concentrations and decrease fat cell size in severely obese women, Metabolism, August 2009).

A 5% reduction for a 200 pound person is only 10 pounds.

More than 15% weight loss

Another study found significant improvements in health-related quality of life measurements with a 5% loss, but the greatest improvement in quality of life showed among those who lost more than 15% of their starting weight (Wu, What extent of weight loss can benefit the health-related quality of life in motivated obese Chinese? Asia Pacific Journal Of Clinical Nutrition, 2009).

A 15% reduction for a 200 pound person is only 30 pounds.

Losing belly fat fast

So when you start to lose those first few pounds, not only is your stomach shrinking, but you are also reducing the size of those fatty cells hanging around your waistline.

And when you stick with your program and continue losing, it only gets better as you improve your overall quality of health.
