Most people, at one time, or another, decide,
they, either need to, or want to, lose weight. Sometimes, this is, for vanity reasons, such
as looking better in certain clothing, bathing suit, etc. Other times, it’s for health – related reasons,
because, excessive weight, has often been indicator, as a significant factor, in a variety
of ailments and diseases, such as heart issues, type – two diabetes, knee and back problems,
etc. As in many things, in life, there is no, one
– size – fits – all, approach, to losing weight. One must begin, by setting a goal for this,
to occur, both in terms of number of pounds, and a realistic time period, to achieve it. It is often wise, to combine, eating changes,
with using a diet plan, which you feel, you will be ready, willing, and able, to stick
– to. With that in mind, this article will attempt
to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 4 possible approaches, for losing
unwanted pounds, and/ or, inches. 1. Exercise/ diet – and – exercise: Before beginning
any plan or program, have a discussion, with your health care professional/ practitioner! If you are given clearance, begin the commitment
to a well – planned, exercise program/ plan! When the right type of exercise is combined
with a well – considered, diet, you maximize your potential, to lose weight! 2. Low calories/ low – fat: The original plan,
of eating less fatty foods, and consuming fewer calories, works, when one is willing
to remain consistent, and committed, to remaining on it. However, for some, it is difficult and challenging
to maintain the patience, and discipline, to do so, and, when they don’t, quickly, see
their desired results, they cheat! This approach works, but, only, when one is
willing to eat the types, and quantities of foods, and abide by the necessary restrictions/
limitations! 3. Prepared food programs: Many, who have tried
to lose weight, on several occasions, with their desired degree of success, turn to one
of the better known, prepared food programs, such as Weight Watchers, and Nutri System. The former uses a combination of prepared
foods, a point system, and meetings, aimed at motivating individuals, to continue forward,
despite obstacles. 4. Low Carbohydrate/ Keto: In the 1970’s, Dr.
Robert Atkins introduced, to the American public, the concept of reducing one’s carbohydrate
intake, for effective weight loss. Since his death, there have been many adaptations,
to this approach, and one of the most popular, is referred to, as Keto. Many studies have demonstrated, when one uses
this approach, and understands/ commits, to it, it is extremely successful, both in the
shorter – term, as long as the longer – one! Many approaches and plans work, so, one should
determine, which one, he is willing to follow, and commit to, and stick, to it! Help yourself, is you want to be, happy, and
healthier! Over weight is a major cause of concern now. Many University studies pointed out some tips
to intake calorie as required per norms. There is no thumb rule for weight loss because
each person has different metabolic rate. It depends on life-style of each a person. However, some common practices can reduce
your weight to normal level.Here are the key points for your urgent attention. 1. Part your meal in three or more feed in a
full-day cycle. Some people start crash diet but dilatation
suggest to eat meal four times per day. Ensure that your metabolic rate matches with
your calorie intake. 2. Change your eating habit, chew food for a
longer time, ensure food with enter into your stomach which can help you to increase your
digesting system. 3. Drink Plenty of Water
Like food, water is essential for our body. Normally, 2 to 2.5 liters of water per day
are advisable. It will not only improve your skin color but
also help you to improve diet systems. Our body needs water to keep up blood volume
and keep our body cells healthy by providing oxygen and nutrients. It also controls our body temperature. Eat Fiber Foods Eat food, which has more fiber. Banana, Orange, Apples are the most suitable
fruits to keep you healthy. You need eating more food like fruits and
vegetable, whole-grain bread, brown rice and beans, etc.
4. Follow the WHO guide of a complete food, which
includes all types of vitamins, necessary minerals, fat and protein. Food is more essential but normally all the
people not follow a complete food menu. So, it is essential to have a mix of food
only! 5. Eat fruits, which contain high fibers. 6. Drink 8 glasses of water in a day. Yes, it is more essential for every human
being to drink water as per minimum requirement, for the body. 7. Exercise regularly for 10-20 minutes as suggested
by your physician or dietitian. Quick Weight loss is appealing to people at
large. Avoid skimmed milk, butter and ghee, which
are “high rich” in fat.Furthermore, check your “BMI index” to stay fit. Lets, we get inspired by reading famous quotes
from leading dietitian and nutritionist. “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince,
and dinner like a poor.” The Amish consider worrying a sin! Makes sense to me, since worry, and fear as
its evil twin, can only cause trouble and definitely weight gain. You probably know by now that when you are
super stressed out, your cortisol levels hit the roof. Then, you want to eat more of the kinds of
food that generally cause weight gain-carbs and sugars. After eating all those carbs and sugars, how
do you feel? Relaxed at first, but over the next few minutes
(not just guessing here-I know from personal experience-you likely feel more stressed,
right? Guilt is a kicker and I would say that definitely
fits In with worry and fear as cortisol instigator. So, how do you keep yourself from worry and
fear? It’s nearly impossible not to react with worry
or fear at times, but you can try several things that may help you:
1. Herbs and other supplements. For example, Holy Basil (or Tulsi Tea) really
helps calm my nervous system. It’s supposed to be especially good for those
of us who have abandonment issues like adoption (I was seven years old when adopted, so had
lots of issues from before that time). Some supplements, like B-12 vitamins and some
amino acids, like tryptophan, may work well for you. Be sure to check with your doctor, chiropractor,
or other health practitioner. 2. Keeping the body aligned with good chiropractic
or osteopathic care makes a world of difference! I had a friend who told me she knew when her
atlas vertebrae was “out,” since that’s when she felt sick to her stomach and so depressed
that she wanted to kill herself! She would never have done that, but it gave
her a clue. Then, after her adjustment, she was her normal,
happy self again! 3. Most Important: Remember you have a choice! Immediately shift to gratitude. Quickly think of the things that are going
Right in Your Life! For example, my car needed an expensive repair. I started to worry and feel stressed until
I realized that life had already given me a great solution. I had a speaking gig that would cover the
expense! Yes, I had earmarked that money to pay some
debt, but I could always do that later. The thing that was going Right in My Life
was that I had a solution before I even had the problem. It’s been proven that most of the things we
worry about never even occur! So relax and enjoy the ride.
