NO THUMB RULE IN WEIGHT LOSS GAME!
We are living in a world where everything comes as a package. We want extra services, extra features, extra payment options and are willing to give extra time searching the best option. All because we want a complete package to make our money worth. And that’s exactly how our weight loss plan should be…a complete package…. Just one option, either diet or exercise is a bigger myth. And people who are obese or extremely overweight need to be extra careful with rigorous exercise regime as it may prove fatal. There are non-invasive and invasive weight loss procedures available but even they do not work in isolation. A perfect body shape is always a combination of healthy diet, healthy mind, exercise and healthy sleep with or without any non-invasive or invasive weight loss procedure that you might need depending on your body’s requirements.
I see many ‘myths and facts’ all over the internet which are all same but confusing. And with different types of diets, exercises, and procedures trending, we all should first remember three basic facts:
MYTH 1: EXERCISE IN ITSELF PRODUCES WEIGHT LOSS
Fact: Studies have shown that exercise alone might not be effective. It increases our metabolism but also increases our appetite. We might end up eating more to regain energy. Exercise is not necessary for weight loss but it is beneficial for our overall good health and longevity.
Tip: Mix exercise with a healthy diet.
MYTH 2: STRICT DIET PLANS PRODUCES LOSING WEIGHT
Fact: They often work if we strictly reduce what we eat or avoid some types of foods. They may not fulfill our body’s nutritional requirements and low-calorie diet (< 800) for a long time may lead to serious heart problems. Choose between Whole (brown rice, whole wheat bread, cereal & pasta) vs Refined grains. Eating whole grain may lower chances of developing some chronic diseases. Many processed low-fat or fat-free foods have just as many calories or even more as the full-fat versions of the same foods. They may contain added flour, salt, starch, or sugar to improve flavor and texture after fat is removed and add calories.
Tip: Follow a healthy eating plan that replaces less healthy options with a mix of fruits, veggies, whole grains, protein foods, and low-fat dairy and combine reduced calorie diet with physical activity.
MYTH 3: NON-INVASIVE WEIGHT LOSS PROCEDURES DOES NOT WORK
Fact: While it’s not a replacement for liposuction or exercise or healthy diet, it helps releasing unwanted fat in certain areas and that released fat is then used by our body in performing physical activities.
Tip: Combine non-invasive treatments with diet and exercise to achieve optimal results.
Weight loss isn’t a big deal as sustaining that reduced weight. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to prepare a combo. After all, we all want the best results.
