Chapter 1

What is Weight Loss?

 

Weight loss refers to a reduction of the total body mass characterized by a loss of skeletal muscle and body fats. This term comes in two types:

 

Intentional Weight Loss

– When a person intentionally reduces weight, they often plan a dietary or training program. These programs are designed to lose a certain amount of weight within a short period of time.

 

Unintentional Weight Loss

- Weight loss may be accidental if a person is suffering from any untreated health issues. The typical examples of these are diabetes, stress, anxiety and a lot more.

 

As experts claim, losing weight offers multiple benefits. Aside from a stunning appearance, you also have a chance to live for more years. Obese people often suffer from multiple diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and cancer.

 

Even if you opt to shed extra pounds instantly, it is still essential to avoid crash diets, fad diets, frequent fasting and other intense weight loss measures. These schemes can put you at risk for health problems.

 

Say for instance, people who use laxatives while dieting may develop dehydration, kidney problems, heart issues and intestinal damage. The best way to lose more weight is to make a diet that covers adequate healthy foods. This can help in maintaining body function while shedding pounds of weight. Before doing any activities or engaging with any programme, make sure that you consult with your nutritionist or doctor.

 

While making a weight loss plan, you should always include proper exercise. Aside from burning calories through intense physical activity, regular training develops a resting metabolism. Therefore, it can help the body to burn more calories while performing ordinary activities.

 

Benefits of Losing Weight

Losing weight isn’t always easy, and as a result, it can have a negative effect on your self-esteem. It is, however, important for you to maintain the normal weight for more than cosmetic reasons. You need to maintain the proper health for many health reasons. In a society like ours, where people put such an importance on the way we look, feeling unattractive can lead to serious depression. It can lead to serious emotional and mental problems in addition to the other health problems. While not all overweight people get depressed, some are, in fact, quite happy the way they are.

 

It can be difficult to determine how much weight you need to lose to be healthy. You should realize, however, that you don’t have to lose weight if you’re not actually overweight. More important than weight is the amount of fat content you have in your body and where that fat has accumulated. Sometimes, you have weight gain because you have started working out and developed muscles. Muscles are heavier than fat, so don’t be shocked if all that exercise has reduced inches but increased weight. If this is the case, there’s no problem at all and you don’t have to worry about losing that weight.

 

While being too worried about our weight can be a problem too, knowing you’re overweight and taking the steps to reduce that weight is important.

 

There are many benefits to losing weight. Here are a few of them:

 

1) Reduces your risk of long-term health problems that could shorten your life. These include health problems such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Usually, this is the main reason people find to lose weight.

 

2) Feeling better, healthier, and having more energy. You’ll be able to take the stairs, or walk from the far end of the parking lot without losing your breath.

 

3) Less pain in your joints. Problems such as osteoarthritis in your knees and pain and swelling in your ankles can greatly be reduced. Being overweight puts a strain on them that you will feel greatly reduced when you lose weight.

 

4) Many times when you lose weight, especially if you’re diabetic or have high blood pressure, your doctor will be able to take you off your medication. Not only will you be healthier and not taking so much medication, you’ll save a lot of money at the pharmacy counter.

 

5) You’ll feel better about yourself as you gradually join the people with smaller mid sections. Your self-esteem will increase. You’ll find yourself interacting with others in a whole new way.

 

6) When you are eating out with co-workers you won’t be overeating, so it could advance your career. Believe it or not, behaviour specialists have studied this, and they found that eating healthy gives you the impression of a person that is outcome driven. This is something supervisors look for. When they see it in you, they take a closer look at you as an employee. Don’t be surprised if you’re looked at for a promotion you never thought you’d get.
