5 Changes in Your Body After Losing 5 Pounds

5 Cambios en tu cuerpo al bajar 5 libras

If you are in your weight loss process and already lost 5 pounds, congratulations! You may think it’s not much, but those pounds do make a significant difference in your body. It's important to celebrate small victories and set realistic goals. For example, if you want to lose 50 pounds, set small goals until you reach your final goal. It is good to go from 5 to 5 pounds because you will see the changes gradually until you reach your ideal weight. Keep in mind that those 5 pounds mean a lot more than you think for your health. Here are 5 positive changes in your body after losing 5 pounds, which Dr. Juan highlights.

1. Fat cells shrink

Those 5 pounds lost begin to show on your stomach. You will also feel that your clothes are more comfortable and looser. This is because the fat cells are shrinking. We all need some body fat as it is an important component of cell membranes, stores energy and some vitamins, and produces different hormones that are necessary. However, if we have too much fat, it can cause numerous problems, including increasing the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer (1). So, by losing 5 pounds, you start to improve your overall health.

2. Lower blood sugar level

As you lose weight, insulin resistance decreases, allowing sugar to enter cells better and keep blood glucose levels in a healthy range (2). So those 5 pounds help improve blood pressure. Lowering blood sugar levels also reduces the risk of developing diabetes, which, according to studies, is related to obesity. We recommend using the Super Slim Café because, besides helping you lose weight, it is high in fiber, which helps improve blood sugar levels. 



3. Reduce joint pain

Being overweight adds a lot of tension and pressure on your joints, causing pain and discomfort. By losing weight, your knees start to feel better, and you ease up on your joints. Plus, by reducing fat tissue, you lessen the inflammatory compounds that can influence arthritis development (3). This means that the 5 pounds lost can help you move better.

4. Increase good cholesterol, lower triglycerides

Amazing news for any doctor! Having too much fat tissue adds more stress to your heart as it works harder to pump blood to your tissues and organs. Excess fat can increase inflammatory hormones in the body and raise cholesterol, triglycerides, and homocysteine levels, a risk factor for cardiovascular conditions (4). The 5 pounds you've already lost contribute to improving your heart and overall health.

5. Improve your mood and sleep better

You've probably noticed that you feel more energetic and sleep better. This is because studies show that obesity can cause sleep apnea. Losing weight improves sleep quality, which contributes to a better sense of overall well-being (5). In addition, studies also show that losing a few pounds helps improve your mood and reduces depression symptoms. When you exercise regularly, you help release endorphins, which make you feel better and happier. Also, when you feel and see the changes in your body, you boost your self-esteem. To improve your day, you can try our Will Pow(d)er which, in addition to supporting hydration, helps the proper function of the central nervous system because of its combination of magnesium and a mixture of herbs such as chamomile, basil, and passionflower, among others.




As you can see, there are many reasons to celebrate those 5 pounds in a big way! Gradually you will reach your goal. This is the first win of many, and it will motivate you to keep going for more because you are already seeing your hard work pay off. If you have not started your process with the Entalla system, today is a good day to do so and enjoy better health inside and out.

Let's be healthier together.
