Setting out on a weight loss journey looks easy. Getting results from it, however, isn’t that easy. I have seen a lot of people nagging, because of getting no benefit out of their efforts. Very soon, their diet and workout plans turn into a never-ending complaint: “Weight loss diets and plans don’t really work for me.”
Most individuals complain about their look; some don’t even like seeing their picture or themselves in the mirror. Reason being is that they couldn’t meet their expected goal and there is no or negligible change in their shape and weight.
As evidenced by behavioral studies in medical science, your lifestyle has an unswerving linkage with your shape, size, and weight.
If losing weight isn’t easy, then how do some people lose it very easily?
Basically, there are two types of obese people – first, those who lose weight and burn fat pretty easily. Second, those who get disheartened and disappointed easily and put an end to their get-fit journey seeing that their efforts aren’t redeeming.
The first type can lose weight without putting in much effort. They would just control their portion size and do a few minutes’ exercise every day for a few weeks, and boom. They will get slimmer and sexier simply by doing nothing.
On the other hand, the second type even after giving enormous tries can’t find a way to get in shape. In the beginning, they do see some weight loss. But the diet, supplement, and exercise they follow aren’t practical and helpful in the long run. Most of the efforts deem to be going in the wrong direction and prove insufficient.
It’s all in your genetics!
Pieces of evidence and studies also certify that the success in getting rid of excess body fat and weight is significantly influenced by your genes.
If you belong to the type two category, the most important thing you need to understand here is that you are genetically unique. You should realize how your body reacts to certain foods, drugs, supplements, nutrients, and exercises is unique in its own way. So, if a diet and workout plan has made an individual achieve his or her weight loss goals, then it makes perfect sense that those food and workout options may not work for you.
The study of genetics allows us to find out the right food, nutrients, and practices that have the potential to support our fitness goals. Real Lab, one of the brands owned by Infinity Health Group, of which Slimming Studios is also a part, offers genetic testing to help your physician or nutritionist plan out the most suitable fitness and wellness plan for you.
The genetic testing may unearth some serious genetic mutations, which could be a reason why your weight loss efforts did not work.
Therefore, I always advise people to go for nutrigenetic testing before following a weight loss diet. This will help ensure that the diet/supplement your doctor is considering suggesting will assuredly bring you some positive results.
If you are about to get set on your weight loss journey, it would be ideal to identify and treat any genetic disorders that could be keeping you away from reaching your fitness goals. Most people who are in the type two category suffer from autoimmune disorders, knowingly or unknowingly. These conditions will not let you lose weight easily. Rather, it will translate into many other complications. You first need to fix the root of the problem, then proceed with weight loss efforts.
Special Tips for Type-2 Obese/Overweight Individuals
If you belong to the “it’s difficult to lose weight” group, and if intense dieting and working out have never worked for you, then apart from considering genetic testing you can try these tips–
- Grain-free, crab-free (low-carb), sugar-free, and low-calorie diet can be great for weight loss.Two best examples of such natural diets are: Paleo Diet and Mediterranean Diet. Following any of these diets alongside a suitable exercise plan can show up extraordinary weight loss results.
- Increase your nutrients’ intake, if you are trying to lower your food intakes. Nutrition that we get from our food has a big part to play in our body’s fat burning process. It’s because of the low supply of nutrients that you feel down and dizzy.
- Also, proper nutrition keeps you active and most importantly, motivated in your weight loss journey.
- Get enough sleep; if possible, 8 to 9 hours in a 24-hour cycle.
- Walk at least 10000 steps every day; it would be better to walk even more.
- Pick foods grown naturally.
- Include raw, half-cooked, unprocessed food items in your meals.
