Study Reveals Who Benefits Most From Weight Loss Later In Life

A new analysis reveals there is no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss in older adults.

UPI reports black and white women benefit the most from late-in-life weight loss, as opposed to black and white men.

Also, women saw more improvement in their walking ability and balance after dropping the weight.

Older white adults lost 9% of their body weight after being placed on a calorie-restrictive diet, while black adults lost 6%.

However, researchers say black adults saw more improvement in their walking speeds after dieting.

The risk for physical disability is higher for older adults who are overweight and obese, particularly among women and black Americans.
