Weight loss and cardiovascular risk factors.
Even very small amounts of weight loss — 3% — can improve triglycerides and glycemia. It takes 5% weight loss to show benefits in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and in HDL and LDL cholesterol levels. For all of these, additional weight loss brings more improvement.

Weight loss and diabetes

A close relationship exists between weight loss and insulin sensitivity. With just 5% weight loss, insulin sensitivity in the liver and adipose tissue is greatly improved but while muscle insulin sensitivity is improved at just 5% weight loss, it continues to improve with further weight loss. Indeed, weight loss has enormous benefits in improving glycemia in prediabetes and diabetes.

In patients with impaired glucose tolerance, weight loss of 10% can eliminate progression to type 2 diabetes. In patients with type 2 diabetes who still have beta-cell reserve, 15% weight loss can produce diabetes remission — normoglycemia without diabetes medications.
