When you noticed for the first time when you put on some weight, you just want to eat a whole lot less. It sounds simple though and reasonable as we all thought this one time or another. Eating food is what probably got us into this predicament in the first place. Nearly every diet or weight loss plan on the internet or in the magazines says pretty much the same thing: you need to eat less food than your used to and exercise regularly. Therefore, the answer to this age old problem is quite simple actually.
Guess what? by lowering your calories you’ll lose that weight, right? Not always says weight loss experts. Going back to the cavemen days, where they had to suffer long starvation periods in the winter, and they didn’t lose a lot of weight. This suggests that starving ourselves triggers a self defense mechanism by lowering the amount of energy being produced and thereby limiting the capacity for effort and our fat stays with us for protection to keep our bodies functioning during the fasting days. Overweight people eat far more fat than thin people do, who seem to prefer complex carbs that are easily broken down by the body.
The right way to reach ones weight loss goal is to work around this defense mechanism by eating smarter rather then eating much less. Overweight people and thin people do eat roughly the same number of calories every day because they share the same required amount of food. This is the biggest difference between the 2 groups and the best point to start when considering what and how to change in your eating patterns for the rest of your life. This is a lifestyle change!
Sound dieting or weight loss will always take time. Your extra weight was not put on your frame over night and will never melt away in a single day or even a week. Every year thousands of men and women are searching the Internet and reading books in the hopes of getting dieting tips and to find that weight loss pill that can make fat disappear or melt off in an instant. Well, maybe this is an exaggeration, but you get the picture don’t you? You have probably encountered by now a lot of advertisements promising such amazing results with the help of some quasi magic ingredient. Knowledge is power and forewarned is forearmed.
Truly the best way to lose weight for good is to avoid eating foods that are rich in fat and exercise on a regular interval 3 times a week with your doctor’s blessing of course. You must exercise when dieting or the weight is going to come back rest assured. You should maintain an active lifestyle and that will help keep the weight off you for good. For example, try taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walk your dog.
