Weight loss is an intentional effort of an individual to actually spend more energy than he/she intakes. Reasons may vary but essentially there are three most important ones:
- To improve overall fitness
- To improve health
- And finally to look better
But from a doctor`s point of view there are a lot more things to look out for when being obese:
- Heart diseases
- High blood pressure
- Bone diseases
Losing weight mechanics
As i`ve said before you lose weight when the body uses more energy then you consume. At that point your body will use it`s reserves – fat, and consequentially lead to losing weight.
But don’t think that just overweight people turn to weight loss guides and methods. Often, people with normal weight look for a new ways to shed some pounds in order to improve their athletic performance. But not just that, some people are obsessed with their weight, and even thou they look perfect they always need to “lose 3 more pounds”, i`m sure you got least one friend thinking like that. And this in fact can be dangerous, because if they go too far they might fall into the underweight category, and be in a risk of various infections, osteoporosis, and troubles regulating body temperatures along with normal bodily functions.
Weight loss programs
You probably noticed by now, internet is not lacking of diet plans and weight loss methods. And just because there are so many of them, you can`t really pinpoint the right ones, the most effective one and that is why people usually lose faith and actually give up. But if you just put in a little bit of effort and research you can find those hidden gems and marbles and get the results you want.
Be careful, when doing your research, always use common sense. You will find products and methods that seem ridiculous and you might even think they can hurt your body. So you must learn never to trust “experts” unconditionally, especially internet “gurus”, always leave place for doubt- it will serve you well.
Rapid weight loss?
If you are like me then I know you are pretty much the most impatient person in the world, when I work or do something I want to see the results now, see the fruits of my labor. So sometimes, I admit it, I take short cuts. I`m sure that thought crosses your mind each and every day- “I am working my ass off my I don’t see any changes… I think I will buy…”, and that is where things go wrong. You lose faith and you turn to medicine, hoping for some miracle pill that will melt away all your fat, while sitting on your sofa.
Sorry to ruin your illusions but that will never happen. You need to work and WORK HARD to get the end results you want. Anyone who tells you differently is probably lying to you.
