Weight loss is one of the best ways to lower the risk of diabetes, and if you already have diabetes weight loss can reduce your blood glucose—also called blood sugar. Besides improving blood sugar control, modest weight loss of 5% to 10% can also decrease blood pressure, cholesterol, and reduce the risk of other chronic diseases related to diabetes.
Despite all the benefits mentioned above, for many, the overwhelming thoughts associated with weight loss are deprivation and hunger pangs. Feeling satiated or full is an important part of a successful weight loss plan. When insatiable hunger takes control, it’s easy to forget about good eating habits.
