7 will get you 58

According to this story in US News & World Report, a 7% reduction in body weight lowers your risk of diabetes by 58%. That’s a hell of a trade. The original source for that datum is here. Even when you factor in the 30 min/day of exercise that the NIH recommends, that’s still a pretty good deal. Compare the 58% reduction to the 31% reduction obtained by taking Glucophage, and it looks even better.
So, here it is. I currently weigh 195. That makes my target weight 181. I’ll keep you posted.
