Changing your Lifestyle
Dentist Muzzafar Hussain Zaman
Usually, talk of losing weight causes people to groan in despair. This may be because they themselves are overweight and don’t know how to do anything about it, or it may be due to the fact that they have had a number of unsuccessful weight loss attempts in the past, and the thought of another one isn’t a good prospect for them. However, the majority of people complicate weight loss, and by simplifying the way that they think about it, they could lose the weight that they need to.
It’s all about the numbers
To put it simply, if you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. You burn at least 1,000 calories per day simply by being alive, though this varies depending on your current weight and height, and every movement or action that you make on top of that will push that number even higher. By moving more to burn more calories, and cutting down on the amount of food that you eat, you will find that the numbers balance in your favour, and you begin to lose weight.
Slow and steady
There’s no need to go on a crash diet; studies show that the majority of people who lose weight quickly will regain it within twelve months, sometimes with more besides. Instead, try making small changes like hopping off the bus a stop early or taking the stairs instead of the lift when you go shopping. These will all burn more calories. You will also find that by slightly decreasing your portions at mealtimes, and replacing unhealthy snacks like chocolate with things that contain fewer calories, you can get the balance right.
Ultimately, this is what long term, successful weight loss is made from, and once you understand this you will find that you can lose weight much more effectively than you have ever done before.
