LOSING WEIGHT and keeping it off

Building exercise into your daily routine can be the key to a slimmer, healthier you

Losing any excess pounds will help to control your diabetes and improve your health. It doesn’t need to be a huge amount: losing 5–10% of your weight (that’s 5–10kg if you’re 100kg or about 11–22lb if you’re 15st) reduces your risk of heart disease and stroke by lowering your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels
