First things first - Can weight/fat loss be justified?
In a society such as ours, weight loss and weight gain have gained as much importance as the global economic slowdown. But the press and media do not find it as importance and therefore such issues are relegated to the back seat. Only people who face these issues every moment of their lives know what it feels to be called fat and ugly. Therefore, the need for weight loss and fat loss can be justified.
How can a person be judged as obese?
A person with a body mass index (BMI) of over 30 is said to be obese. Obesity is a nothing but a chronic problem of excess body fat compared to other tissues and this leads to almost all the problems which are associated with obesity and excess weight. It is important to be aware of the harms of being overweight or obese and what are the conditions that cause weight.
For this one needs... An extensive body analysis. If you think that you are obese and are suffering from problems such as body pains, head aches, irregular sleep patterns inspite of being a teetotaller and a non-smoker, it is time you consulted your doctor. A health checkup from a certified professional is what you need.
And after that?
Brainstorming. You have to analyse your problems, you have to identify what is wrong in your:
*Eating habits - Are you having a lot of junk food? *Lifestyle - Do you go on daily walks? To the gym? How much exercise are you getting? Check out an interesting approach to exercising here
Answer these questions, yourself - no one else is going to do it for yourself. However, if you are unsure, you must take expert medical advise. Even the net will seem poor in front of a person you completely trust.
Effective weight loss programs need you to analyse certain facts about yourself. For instance, your dietary habits. Weight loss at a rapid rate may create physical problems so do not expect to lose thirty pounds every month because this is impractical and unhealthy. Losing weight easily means losing it slowly; a pound or two every week. This can easily be achieved by moderate dieting and routine exercises. Of course, the degree of one's problems is an important factor. Another important aspect which you should note is not to binge. If you cut down completely on a food item which you relish and enjoy, don't stop eating it completely. Chances are you will end up binging on. Eat small amounts after fixed intervals instead.
Be Emotional about weight loss
Being emotional about weight loss is the same as being emotional to any other problem. If you want to cry, cry with a friend or a relative, it will be magical. People under depression or who are unhappy tend to consume much than those who are happy. Therefore, lead a stress free lifestyle (which I know is easier said than done). Be committed about your weight loss campaign, no matter how deep the problem you can overcome it.
