    Weight Maintenance of 7% After Losing More Than 10%

    This compares to 7 percent in people who lost more than 10 percent.

    Conclusion: Better to shoot for 10% or more weight loss

    “From this perspective, 10% or more weight loss can indeed be encouraged and favoured above lower weight loss goals,” the authors of the paper concluded.
