Obesity is increasingly becoming the bane of urbane lifestyles today. Health companies and fitness regimes are vying with each other to formulate efficient and quick mechanisms of losing weight.
Controlled low carbohydrate diets, adequate exercise routines, walking for diet exercise fitness, and a lifestyle aimed primarily for health and wellness, are some of the essential ways followed in order to achieve remarkable results in weight loss.
What comes to mind first when one thinks of losing weight is a healthy diet plan. Having said that, it is also a fact that there is no single “healthy diet”. A diet can be considered healthy as long as we do not engage in diet starvation, eat a variety of foods, and get all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrition that we need.
A weight loss diet too should not deprive of high calorie food excessively but instead allow all types of food occasionally and in moderation. In fact, one of the reasons that adults experience weight problems and ill-health, is because they followed drastic or unhealthy weight loss diets during their teenage years.
Weight reduction largely depends on the gap between the amount of calories consumed in a day and the amount burned. If we consume the same amount of calories that we burn, you stay the same weight and vice-versa.
The second step towards weight loss is hence to increase body metabolism to burn what we consume. It would help if one made the conscious effort of embracing an active lifestyle and rely on simple techniques like tapping feet, stretching frequently, changing positions, indulging in active hobbies like gardening, taking stairs instead of elevators, so on and so forth.
The effect of consistent walking on a daily basis too cannot be emphasized enough. It is a known and much recommended method for controlling and then maintaining body weight. Walking at a moderate pace for 30-60 minutes burns stored fat and can build muscle to speed up our metabolism.
An appropriate speed, the duration and frequency of walking influences the effectiveness of the activity in losing weight more efficiently. According to some, Treadmill walkers burn more calories than those using other exercise machines because treadmill walking is so natural.
Buying a home treadmill is hence yet another convenient way to burn calories whenever we want.
While diet and metabolic activity are essential factors governing body weight, it is equally important to manage stress well since it is a well-researched fact that depression affects our appetite and varies the intake of the quality and quantity of nutrients ingested thereby influencing our weight.
Diet Pills like Adipex etc are the last option to go for if you are in a hunt for fast as well as effectual weight loss. They might be hazardous because they are not a natural solution.
Finally, maintaining weight is just as important as losing weight. The challenge is essentially to stick to a healthy diet and disciplined lifestyle and thereby reap the benefits of an optimum body weight for several years to come.
