Simple diet mistakes can derail your best efforts to get back into your favourite pair of jeans. While mindless snacking can pad your waistline, thoughtful snacking may just do the opposite. Drinking little water is the simplest diet blunder to fix. Weighing yourself daily is a recipe for frustration that does not aim at yielding useful information, instead setting a long-term trend to lose weight is much more advisable.
Spend time on different physical activities to find what you love, and stick to it to, while making it a part of your daily routine. This is because unhealthy diet and physical inactivity are the main risk factors for the major non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes. Just brisk walking for twenty minutes a day can have major benefits.
Also, a good aerobic exercise with cardiovascular benefit is to climb ten flights of stairs once a day increasing by one flight per week to achieve the goal.
Losing weight once it has been gained can be difficult, but is worth trying for because of its many health benefits and hence the best approach is prevention, which is by adopting a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet plus exercise.
Often extra weight and obesity are the results of an overall energy imbalance due to eating too much calories and getting too little physical activity. Calories are what you eat which are composed of three main nutrients – carbohydrates, proteins and fats, all of which are necessary in your daily meals.
The bottom line is that if you start exercising to lose weight, you won’t succeed with a fix set of mentality that you can eat anything and burn the excess calories later. One will have better results if they choose a healthy diet of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, proteins, and healthy fats while following an exercise regime as well. And by chance even if someone succeeds in losing weight by opting for just either of the one, chances are that the results are temporary and the person will soon gain weight again, especially if they stop exercising or dieting.
When you don’t diet, you put the entire burden of weight loss on your diet. However, if you become active and sweat it out you can eat more things you like and still lose weight. The key is in finding an exercise that you enjoy. Hence, the best way forward is to supplement your exercising regime with a healthy diet.
