How To Have Weight Loss Success

Considering weight gain is usually caused by the simple activity of eating too much you would think that weight loss would be just as straightforward. Unfortunately it takes far less effort to pile on the pounds than it does to melt them away. If eating was just about hunger, weight loss would not even be an issue, often we eat for emotional reasons and favour high calorie foods as opposed to less fattening alternatives.

As soon as we decide we are going to go on a diet we feel deprived and have to fight cravings for food even if we don’t feel hungry. It takes a great deal of willpower and determination to achieve the weight loss we desire. Once we do reach our goal we have to try to maintain the weight and that can be even harder than the weight loss itself. Being the correct weight is just as important for your health as it is for your appearance.

Why Weight Loss Is Important

Apart from how we look, whether we are overweight or not is determined by our BMI measurement. BMI or Body Mass Index is measured by using information about height and weight, if your BMI is between 18.5- 24.5 then you are a healthy weight any measurement above that then you are overweight. You are considered obese if your BMI is 30 and above.

There are many health implications caused by being overweight and these include:-

Type 2 diabetes - which can actually be controlled and eradicated by a healthy diet. Coronary heart disease. Breast cancer and bowel cancer. Stroke. High blood pressure. Gallbladder disease and gallstones. Osteoarthritis. Gout. Sleep Apnea. Depression. Low self esteem.

Even just losing 5% of your body weight can start showing benefits to your health.

How To Lose Weight

If we had a magic formula for losing weight we would be too busy on our luxury yacht to write this article. Losing weight is not a quick process and diets like the cabbage soup diet or maple syrup diet will only help weight loss for a short time until you are reaching out for the biscuit tin.

Count calories if you aim for 1500 calories a day to start off with you will start losing weight. Avoid sugary drinks and food. Drink water half an hour before eating - sometimes you can think you are hungry when you actually thirsty. Eat food with a high GI because they take longer to release energy. Avoid processed foods and go for fresh and homemade meals. Eat slowly because your stomach takes time to acknowledge that you have eaten. Restrict portion sizes - smaller plates can help with this. Sleep well.

Weight Loss Supplements

If you want to increase the rate of weight loss you can use tablets that prevent 30% of fat consumed from being absorbed by the body. The excess fat is expelled by the body and can be quite unpleasant so it would actually be a good incentive not to eat a high fat diet.

If you would like information regarding weight loss tablets please visit our weight loss section for more details and the option of a consultation with our doctor if you are interesting in using them to help you lose weight.
