Losing weight in a world of confectionery chocolates and (somehow) 500 calories salads is not an easy course to take. But in the western worlds, where the belts are getting ever tighter there are ever more advanced ways at tackling the problem of being overweight.
Most people find a ‘thing’ which they acclaim to helping them lose weight, whether it’s yoga, jogging, diets or even diet pills. Although it’s definitely true that all of these activities all help to an extent in losing them person weight, it’s more a culmination of different things that makes the significant difference.
In reality all the person needs to do is to lose more calories than he’s gaining from his diet. Most people tend to go about this exactly the wrong way when losing weight and think that if their body is burning of on average 2000 calories a day; all they have to do is starve them for a week. This may seem like a good plan to start with, but as soon as the body starts to receive the ‘feeling’ of hunger, it goes into a biological power saving mode. This means that whereas before when it felt like it was well fed it was running on a thousand calories a day but now it runs on just 1000 calories.
This means that unless the person is starving themselves ridiculously (i.e. less than 1000 calories) they’re unlikely to lose a significant amount of weight. So the best thing to do is maintain your metabolism (and hence keeping the body burning 2000 calories per day), while still losing a moderate but not too great an excess. Usually all it takes is a switch from a chocolate bar to foodstuffs such as protein diet bars. This is because that kind of soya-based product keeps the body ‘feeling’ fuller for longer, hence maintaining metabolism. It also doesn’t give you a sugar rush followed by a sugar low which is what tends to happen with most snack foods.
