How To Lose And Maintain Your Weight Successfully


 Are you satisfied with your current weight? If not, which measures have you taken to achieve a healthy weight? Obesity is a major cause of various health issues. Therefore, weight maintenance is an essential health aspect that every person should pay close attention to. I'm not talking about what I like to call the "Vanity Pounds", a 10-20 lb. discrepancy between what the charts say and your own weight. I'm talking about the unhealthy kind of weight that endangers organs, heart, ligaments and glucose levels.

Basically, for individuals struggling with obesity, a unique solution to achieve a permanent solution does not exist. Human bodies respond differently to various food and weight loss remedies. Hence, what works effectively in one person may not yield a similar result to another.

To discover a weight loss strategy that is likely to work effectively, you need patience, determination, and experiments based on different diets and food. The following are some of the ways you can apply and lose and maintain your weight successfully.

1.      Reduce Calories, Carbohydrates, and Fats

Obesity can cause serious health issues, both physically and mentally. At times, due to size changes, it can negatively influence your choice of fashion. Discounted clothing may be your only option since your previous clothes may no longer fit you. Your choice of diet can have a significant impact on your weight and physical appearance.

According to experts, when you cut calories, your weight may reduce in the first few weeks. Therefore, to achieve a constant weight loss, you should continue reducing calories. Calories also have different impacts on the body based on the type of food. 

Some people eat food as a way of relieving their stress. This may slow any weight loss plans. The role of the hormone insulin is also another essential process linked to the weight of an individual. Consumption of carbohydrates triggers the body to produce the hormone.

Insulin prevents fat cells from discharging fats to be burned as fuel by the body. The hormone also creates extra cells for storing fats that cannot be burned by the body. As a result, you will gain extra weight. Consequently, the body needs more fats to burn. Hence your eating habits increase automatically. 

Reducing the number of carbohydrates can help in breaking this cycle. The reduction of fats that you consume can also have a significant effect on your weight. Avoid diets that comprise a lot of fats. Try as much as possible to include fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet.

The Weight Loss Enigma - Permanently Lose Those 10 Elusive Pounds

 Do a bit of research online and you would definitely be forgiven for thinking that losing weight is an easy and simple process. More than that, there are a lot of guides online that suggest losing weight should be a rapid process, taking just a few weeks. However, this is a fallacy. The reality is that losing weight can take quite a long time and if you lose it too fast then it can have negative consequences. One possible side effect of losing weight too quickly is that you might find that you develop prominent stretch marks because you have transformed fat into muscle too quickly. Still, if losing weight is taking a lot longer than you expected, there are a few problems that you might need to address.

Your Metabolism

 First, you might find that the problem is you have a slow metabolism. A slow metabolism will mean that it takes significantly longer to lose weight or put on muscle than other people. The good news is that there are ways to speed up your metabolism. This can be as simple as drinking a nice cold glass of water in the morning to start the day. In addition, you could think about exploring additional help like NAD. According to a recent 2017 Harvard study, NAD provides the sustenance your body needs to boost your metabolism. 

 A little trick I personally use each day is to put 2 Tbsp. of Bragg’s Apple Cider “Miracle Cleanse” Vinegar into a 4 oz. glass of water, along with some lemon juice and a scoop of FiberWise fiber, with psyllium husk. I chug it down as quickly as possible.

1. Remember that slow and steady helps to win the race.
When you lose too quickly the body is tricked into thinking there is a crisis and will go into crisis mode until you start eating "normally", or at least how the body perceives is normal for you. The body will strive hard to get you back to that "normal" weight. Basically that is why it is so dang hard to keep the weight off once you get to your target weight.
