Weight Loss

Weight loss is a very common endeavour for many people, whether it is a quick week-long health kick or a long-term battle with trying to shed unwanted weight.

A lot of people struggle with weight loss and despite all their efforts, the mainstream’s dietary and nutritional guidelines keep many in the dark – and often have the opposite effect: losing the weight in the short-term but risking more serious long-term health risks.

Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a ‘diet’ or ‘programme’. It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits. There’s no denying that losing weight requires commitment, dedication and hard work. However it isn’t impossible. If you understand the correct ways of going about your new invigorated lifestyle it is definitely achievable.

Any amount of weight you lose, your body will thank you for it. For each pound lost you’re likely to see improvements in blood pressure and blood cholesterol. This is even more pertinent at greater weights, for example if you’re weight 200 pounds, just a 10 pound loss, despite still being in the overweight or obese range, can reduce your risk factors for chronic disease related to obesity such as diabetes, heart disease or cancer.

When it comes to the mainstream’s approach to weight loss, there are many unanswered questions and finding out what really goes on behind the scenes will shed light on why we’re not breaking the back of the global obesity and diabetes crisis. Why do low-fat weight loss products cause more harm than good in the long run? Is saturated fat really the enemy it is made out to be? Can artificial sweeteners actually increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes?

The Daily Health looks at why these guidelines are failing us. Fortunately, with the help of Mother Nature coupled with a healthy dose of common sense, you will be able to lose weight effectively and say goodbye to yo-yo dieting for good.
