I know how it feels to have registered in all the gyms in your neighborhood, tried all the diets you've read about, from Akins to South Beach, from curves to eat more weigh less and so on and still the numbers on the scale remain the same, the cloths are even tighter and your energy level is getting low. The problem is simply understanding the body which is unique and different from another.
Fat loss is not a one size fit all thing but a personalizing thing. I get so surprise when i see people doing same thing everyday at the gym, and some, as they are in a competition, i laugh when i see that because i have been there and done that. The only solution is to make the right choice from choosing a healthy eating plan, a method of inceasing physical activity or a technique to manage your crawys, you learn strategies that will help you plot a course and stay on it.
The very first thing you need to do is to get nutritional information under your belt, whether you want to lose 5 pounds or 50 pounds. It's easy to be led astray and extremely become disappointed by diets that make outrageous promises, that is why it is important to learn about the role of nutrients in food and how these nutrients are used in your body. Armed with this knowledge, you can resist the siren call of unhealthy diets and make an informed decision about a fat loss plan that is right for you.
The first nutritional information is to know your calories basics, the consumption rate and how many you expand. If the number of calories you eat and the number of calories you use each day
are approximately the same, your weight will not budge, it's only when you consume fewer calories than you use over a period of time that you will lose fat, and it's only when you eat more calories than you use that you will gain weight. So, what number of calories are we talking about ?, that is the equation: One pound of body weight is equal to 3,500 calories. This means that to lose one pound, you must create a 3500 calories shortage by eating fewer calories, burning more actively or a combination of both.
Despite claims from popular diet plans, calories wherever it comes from protein, fat or carbohydrates eaten that your body does not burn for energy are stored as body fat, no matter what kind of food package they come in. There are a few other factors in addition to calories that influence your weight. They are your age, your gender, your genetic blue print and most importantly your toxic level are all under control. The more toxic level that is under your control, the more toxic your body is, the more weight you intend to put on. So, focusing on your food intake, physical activity and your cleansing system are the areas in which you can have an impact.
Calories Counts: Here where the calories you eat come from are all one nutrients except alcohol, which provides empty calories
1 gram of protein provides 4 calories
1 gram of fat provides 4 calories
1 gram of carbohydrates provides 4 calories
1 gram of alcohol provides 7 calories
Gradual weight gain is caused, an average, by an excess of only about and getting more activity may be all it takes to manage your fat gains, losing 10 pounds a year can be as simple as eating 100 calories less each day for a year and also know that to cut calories, you do not need to eliminate food, just control portion sizes.
The queston now is, what is a portion? Some people seems to think that a portion is whatever they are served, but the answer is far more precise. For instance, 1/2 cup pasta, rice or potatoes is an ice cream scoop's worth. I cup dry cereal is a large handy and vegetable is your fist. Another thing is learn to divide your plate into a quarter, allocate one-quarter for learn proteins, one-half for vegetables or fruits and one quarter for carbohydrates. Also know that as we age, our metabolism slows down and we no longer need all the energy contained in starchy foods such as pasta, rice, potatoes and bread. Treat carbohydrates like a threat, especially at dinner time, basing your meals on vegetables and fruits instead. Also remember that you need to weight your own situation, your overall health, your current fat versus your optimum weight = your fitness level and your weight loss goals. Evaluating where you are now and where you want to be is the leg of your fat loss journey. You cant lose fat without you are careful to reduce your daily calories take so much that you jeopardize your health. Women should not take less than 1200 calories a day while men should not take no less than 1800 calories a day. It is hard to get all the vitamins and minerals you need every day when you reduce your intake blow to these amounts. A US Surgeon General's report as far as 1979 warned that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is dangerous and was related to the deaths of one and half million American that year (thats over 62%) A ground small people have changes their lifestyles and eating habits since then.
