What is weight loss anyway?
I am writing this article due to a common mistake. Most people are not familiar with the definition of weight loss. They don’t know why they want to lose weight. Some people have serious health problems, but for most people losing weight is a matter of fashion and beauty. I know you have your own reasons for losing weight, but make sure your reason is clear enough to give you a clear path.
9 out of 10 girls try to lose weight every day. Women are always depressed about their weight gain. For teens, weight loss is an everyday fad, not a health concern. So what is weight loss? Is it a matter of fashion or health?
I know you have been trying to lose weight for some time. His doctor recommended that he go on a diet to lose a few kilos. How can you know if you are overweight or not?
Last week a client asked me this question:
“I have a BMI of 24. I’m happy and healthy. Do you think I should lose weight?”
This question got me thinking. If someone is living a healthy life, there is no need to lose weight. In scientific terms, when your doctor invites you to lose weight, he wants you to avoid these diseases:
- heart attacks
- Increased cholesterol levels
- high blood pressure
If you can maintain your health despite your weight gain; no need to worry about extra pounds.
However, this is not the case. Most people want to lose weight because they want to look smart and attractive. They don’t have any problems with their health, but they don’t feel beautiful.
To live a healthy life, our body stores fat for the reproductive system, to protect nerves and tissues, and for energy storage. This is good. However, excessive fat storage affects your health and body shape.
BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement that gives results based on your height and weight. However, the BMI does not tell us about pregnancy, bodybuilding and many other factors. There are many tests including fat analysis, metabolism checker, etc. These tests determine whether or not you are overweight.
If you are an overweight person and have excess fats it can cause health risks.
At this point the term weight loss comes into play. Studies new and old have shown us that taking in more calories and burning fewer calories is the most common reason for weight gain. The increased amounts of calories are stored in the thighs and hips and cause weight gain. This is the most well-known definition of “weight gain.”
The term obesity means that your weight is greater than the ideal body weight for a certain height. Millions of Americans are overweight or obese. To solve their obesity, the term weight loss has been introduced. Losing extra pounds is known as losing body weight. However, this can be done in a million ways:
- working out
- Chinese traditions such as acupuncture and other healing terminologies.
- Join the gym/slimming center
- Combination of diet and exercise.
As you can see, long-term weight loss includes all of these factors. To lose weight effectively, all these factors must be combined and act accordingly. But before you take action, you need to know what weight loss means to you. This is important. If you want to live a healthy life, you should never opt for strict diet plans. In most cases, people want to look smart and that is why they use schemes like lose weight in 24 hours etc. Whichever path you choose will largely depend on your reason for losing weight.
