Looking for the Key to Losing Weight?
With the constant barrage of fads diets trying to sell people easy fixes to a healthier self, it can be easy to be overwhelmed by the options. Diet pills, extreme diets, pre-packaged meals, tracking options with calorie and activity counters as well as gym memberships full of gimmicks fill your senses at every opportunity. While all of this information can be overwhelming, it is important to note that at the root of all these messages is consumer marketing. The key to maintaining a healthy weight isn't about a quick fix. It's about eating the right foods to keep the body in balance and reap the rewards of a long and comfortable life.
Achieving a Healthy Transformation
Achieving a healthy weight level involves maintaining a body fat percentage that are based on your age, height, and build. A common sense approach can offer major benefits beyond just looking your best with healthy improvements, such as a lowered risk of stroke and heart disease. Being overweight puts a strain on the heart that can cause a host of problems while putting immense strain on the body's resources. This can lead to an increased risk of hypertension, vascular problems and more serious diseases. Joints and muscles also feel the stress of the added weight as the effort needed for movement increases.
Eating real food and simple exercise (walking or treading water in the pool) are all that is needed to help most people lose weight safely — and even losing as little as ten pounds can dramatically decrease your risk of chronic disease and the physical strains placed on your body. Health results can be improved by even a small amount of weight loss. Best of all, losing those extra pounds can increases your energy levels, letting you become even more active for an even better overall quality of life. With easier movement and more energy comes better heart health, less risk of disease, and the confidence to keep unwanted pounds off.
Consult a Weight Loss Professional
To safely lose weight, it is best to consult a professional who can help you establish a menu plan that matches your nutritional needs. Age or other health issues may make some types of exercise preferable – low impact swimming for those with joint problems, for example. As always, medical conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes may also play a role in determining your dietary and exercise needs. Overall, the best approach to shedding pounds is one that includes professional weight loss supervision and ends with a celebration of your success.
