Obesity has become a big problem these days. There are millions out there suffering from this problem. Now people are looking for the shortest way to lose weight. Many also have the tendency of targeting the impossible, such as losing 15 pounds in ten days and what not.
Other tend to go for special diets like high protein diet, fruit diet, low carb diet … if I go on, then this article will become the size of a novel.
If you are planning to go for any of those or just planning a crash diet, then for your information they are not just unhealthy, after a certain time, that special diet makes you gain weight rather than help you losing weight. And some of them have terrible side effects as well. Protein diets tend to stress the kidneys. On the other hand low cal diets starve the body. While you are on diet, it definitely makes you lose the extra pounds, but as soon as you give that up, you can certainly hear those lost extra pounds saying, “Honey, we are back.”
So how do you lose weight?
The answer is simple – exercises. Nothing can burn calories like a good workout. But exercise alone will not help. Instead of going for a crash diet, go for a healthy diet. Watch what you put in your mouth. Reduce the amount of fatty food in your meal and increase the amount of fruits and vegetables. This is the best and the most effective way of losing weight.
When you are hungry, do not go for a Big Mac, go for a fruit salad. This will meet your appetite and you will get nutrition. Always eat in proper quantity. Do not stuff yourself. Then no matter what you eat, you will certainly gain weight.
Setting target is very important. First decide how much you wish to lose and then work on that. Set the goal right. Do not aim to lose too much in short time. Patience is a virtue. Exercise diligently and you will get great results.
Last but not the least; do not try to lose weight if it is not necessary. Being a size zero is neither healthy nor attractive.
