  • How to Lose Weight Effectively


    Putting it simply, you lose weight by consuming less energy each day than you burn-- simple mathematics. Some other factors are also involved in helping you lose weight, such as metabolism, hormones, your body type and lifestyle.

    Most experts stress that physical activity is as important as dieting when people want to lose weight and to keep it off.
    How to lose weight is one of the most commonly asked health queries typed in to an internet search engine.

    Common reasons for wanting to lose weight-People lose weight for many different reasons:


    There are literally thousands of different diet plans on the market which make amazing weight loss claims. Some of them are well thought out, safe and effective, while others are not. Most health care nutritionists, professionals and dietitians agree that a combination of a weight-reduction healthy diet with physical activity tends to have the best results, especially in the long term.
    Appearance-- they want to look fitter, more attractive, or healthier.
    Overall health-- they want to become healthier, live longer, and avoid developing diseases associated with obesity/overweight
    Comfort-- simply to be more comfortable in their bodies
    For a specific condition or illness-- obese people with sleep apnea who lose weight have less severe symptoms-- sometimes the sleep apnea goes away completely. Obese or overweight individuals with diabetes type 2 will usually have less severe symptoms if they can bring their weight down to healthy levels. One study found that overweight/obese males with diabetes type 2 who lost weight reported enhanced libidos.
    Fitness-- to become fitter, to have more energy and stamina
    Fashion-- to be able to wear a greater variety of clothing. To be able to fit into their existing clothes.
    Sports competitions-- a boxer, for example, may wish to lose weight so that he can remain within his weight category
    Employment-- fashion models who are overweight have much less work than thin ones. An obese firefighter may find it harder to run up stairs, climb up ropes, and generally do emergency fire work effectively.
    Confidence and body image-- some people lose weight so that they can become less self-conscious about their bodies
    Fertility-- obese women who are finding it hard to get pregnant sometimes are more likely to do so if they lose weight
    Preparing for a special event-- many people prefer to be thinner for an expected event, such as a wedding, or a vacation in the tropics where they are going to show lots of bare skin.

    Negative Energy Balance

    In order to lose weight you need to be exerting more energy than you are consuming, this is called a negative energy balance. If you are in a state of negative energy balance, your body will seek out stores of energy, such as fat or muscle to make up for the shortfall-- it will start using up your excess weight In extreme cases, however, when the individual has little fat, more muscle and lean tissue will be used up.
    Sports and weight
    Some sportsmen and sportswomen will try to lose weight even though doctors would say their bodyweight is ideal. In some cases it might be to get better speeds, or as mentioned above, to be within a weight classification for a competition.
