More and More People Are Becoming Obese Due To A Bad Diet
There is a lot to justify the reason why today more than ever before the number of people classified as obese or overweight is rising by the minute. One is the consumption of less fiber, the increase in the number of fast food joints that serve ‘convenient’ saturated fat-rich foods, third is the consumption of refined sugar in drinks such as sodas as well as consumption of over-processed food stuffs. Genetics too have a role to play, and so is the aging process whereby as someone ages, the metabolism tends to slow down thus making it all the hard to expend calories at the rate in which they are consumed.
Be advised that the rate at which you lose weight is proportionate to how you gain it in the first place. Rapid weight loss is never recommended as it will leave you with flabby skin which will need surgical intervention to tuck the lose skin in or cut it off completely, a process that can be unsightly afterwards. Generally, healthy weight loss will be determined by your preexisting condition meaning your health, weight, age, lifestyle, calorie intake, gender, stress level, and fitness level.
A Good Diet and Regular Exercise Will Help You Lose Weight
Be advised that there is no overnight solution to weight loss, but good nutrition complemented by good exercise on a regular moderate manner will help lose weight in a gradual but safe way. By good nutrition here we mean a low calorie diet. Typically, you should consult a nutritionist or your doctor to determine your fitness level in order to recommend the best diet and exercise program. Such programs will not have any use of artificial supplements or expensive fitness equipment.
Exercise With Weight and Do Cardio When You Exercise
As for your exercise plan, it should have weight training and cardio exercise which help in burning excess calories and increasing the muscle to fat ratio which results in the increase of the body’s metabolism to aid in weight loss. As for the diet, it should be made up of all food groups, first being carbohydrates in form of minerals, vitamins, and fiber which you can get from rice, oats, potatoes, as well as cereals. Fruits and veggies too are a good source as they contain enzymes, micronutrients, and phytochemicals that are critical for a healthy diet.
Don’t Eat Less Eat Smart
Note that a good diet plan is supposed to make you reduce the amount of caloric intake in your body, hence does not mean that you should eat less. It means you should eat smart by selecting the foods that are less caloric in nature. In the course of your weight loss program, you should still have regular checkups with your doctor so that you can have your progress monitored professionally for effective and healthy weight loss.
