That added weight you carry puts a lot of stress and strain on your body. For example, just a few extra pounds adds to the wear and tear on your knees, which happens to bear the brunt of your excess weight. There is a misconception that one must lose a lot of weight before seeing any sort of benefit, but that is simply not true. Dropping as little as 5 to 10 pounds will garner several benefits. That is, it doesn’t take  a 50 pound weight loss to enjoy the benefits of a lower weight. So losing a little weight through laser fat removal treatment or body sculpting will benefit you in ways you cannot imagine.

At this very moment, there are well over 70 million Americans teetering on the brink of diabetes. Large-scale studies have shown again and again that obesity is a huge risk factor for this disease. Those who are obese and make no lifestyle changes have a 1 in 12 chance of developing diabetes. Those are some eye opening statistics. But those who lose even just a few pounds cut their chances of developing diabetes in half. Indeed a fine reason to lose 5 or 10 pounds.

Studies looking into the effects of excess weight discovered something rather alarming. It was found that fat cells, especially the ones in the abdominal region, produce a large number of substances that results in inflammation in blood vessels. This type of inflammation can result in clots that turn into heart attacks as well as strokes. These levels of inflammation decrease significantly when weight loss is achieved. Yet another very good reason to lose that added weight.
