SHAPE UP THE RIGHT WAY

Nothing tastes as good as being thin. For some people losing weight can be very difficult. Some of us have to work harder to lose weight. A number of factors can make weight loss difficult for some people. Adding to the difficulty is the abundance of fad diets that tempt and confuse us, and ultimately fail.
Metabolic Slowdown: your metabolism naturally begins to slow down at around forty years. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends. It has been estimated that, you will need to consume approximately one hundred fewer calories per day after forty years to avoid weight gain. As we pass forty we begin losing muscle mass, so losing muscle also means burning fewer calories.
Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork.
Lots of people can’t lose weight even when they think they are eating healthy because they simply don’t realize how much food they eat. Portion control is very important to weight loss success. Giving in to cravings, denying yourself meals, eating the wrong types of foods, eating when you’re happy or sad or depressed, stressed or lonely are all bad habits that people pick up. It’s difficult to break bad habits. If you want to lose weight, be committed to the cause.
Rich, fatty foods are like destiny:  they too shape our ends. We need a healthy and balanced diet. If you feel you cannot have a healthy diet because you do not know what a healthy balanced diet is, it will be best to consult a nutritionist. Eat food in balanced proportions: 40% Carbohydrates, 30% Fat, 30% Protein. Eat foods as close to nature as possible: vegetables, grains, and fruits are best. You must drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water per day. Toxins and residues are easily removed from our metabolism if we drink sufficient water. Our diet should not become an obsession. Eat slowly, when you eat slower, enjoyment will last longer, be more satisfying, and it feels like you’re eating more while actually you are eating less. Chew your food slowly and thoroughly (between 20 & 30 times), you should chew so well that it should feel as if you are drinking your food. Chewing satisfies your appetite, improves your digestion, and discourages your body from storing fat.
It is both genetic and environmental why some people are overweight and obese. There can be emotional reasons that we don’t want to lose the weight although it only hits a few of us, and isn’t always the reason. Get to know your body’s new biological rhythms — and adjust to them.
If your job involves sitting, it is not going to help you burn calories. Even if you have a job that involves being on your feet all day, it won’t help very much if it does not include aerobic activity that increases heart and lung activity. If you don’t work out consistently, it’s tough to lose weight. Set up a reasonable workout schedule that you can follow.
Many people have undiagnosed medical conditions like diabetes, insulin resistance, thyroid problems, or metabolic disorders that can make it difficult for them to lose weight. Your doctor will be the best person to guide you through this. You can also go to an alternate therapist to help you with your illness and thereby your weight issue.
People who sleep less than six hours a night experience an increase in their body mass index more than those who sleep seven to eight hours.
Stress leads to weight gain. Find ways to combat stress. Yoga, meditation, music and dance help reduce stress.
Your body is a temple, not a drive-through. Weight loss is a constant battle. It is not easy to lose weight and maintain the lower weight, but it is possible. Keeping track of what you eat, your exercise regimen, getting a support network of friends and family involved, and tackling your mental and emotional issues can lead to better success.
