Weight loss

The weight-loss equation is basically eating and drinking slightly less energy than the energy you spend doing your daily activities. The body stores any excess energy to fat, so if you increase your energy expenditure your body will burn existing body fat instead of storing it. This can be done by either switching to a well balanced low-calorie diet and regular exercise.

Changes that you can do to your diet include:

• cutting down on sugar and carbs

• eating more fruits and vegetables

• avoiding foods rich in trans and saturated fats

• avoiding unhealthy takeaways and fast food

These changes are going to be hard at first, especially if you already are into the habit of eating unhealthy foods. The change in diet does not have to be drastic; you can slowly incorporate these changes as long as you keep your focus and you don’t give up just because you find it too hard. The diet doesn’t have to be perfect; it’s more important to eat healthy most of the time and to keep it that way. If your body isn’t used to exercise, you can start off with doing light exercises everyday. These include walking around your suburb or even gardening. Eventually, you may want to increase the duration and intensity of these activities. You don’t have to go to the gym and lift weights just to do it. Running and walking up the steps are already considered vigorous exercises. Find activities that you enjoy doing and try to find a way to make these activities physically more challenging each day.

The benefits of weight loss, balanced diet and regular exercise are undeniable

Being overweight greatly increases the risk of getting heart problems, indigestion, diabetes, sleep problems and even some forms of cancer. Even a small weight loss (around 5%) reduces the risk of getting these diseases. Eating a well balanced diet provides the body with essential nutrients that gives you better immunity against diseases, as well as gives you a better sense of wellbeing. Regular exercise boosts your energy levels, improves your mood, and strengthens your bones and muscles making you less prone to injury. All of this is normally easier said than done though.
