The 4 Myths About Weight Loss

Categories Healthy Food, LifestylePosted on

Beauty they say is in the eye of the beholder. The main crux will be what will be the yardstick to define something as beautiful (as regards your health and wellness) and has the entire opposite.

A big question I must say and it becomes me to answer.

Kindly hit the brakes and allow me a soft landing by enjoying this piece.

It is always an uphill task writing about sizes of humans because no one takes it likely when you touch their self-esteem at wrong spots which may deflate their ego.

We are all beautiful in our ways. The world is blessed with the short, tall, skinny, or plus size. No matter what dice life throws at you or what ever faculty you find yourself, remember you are your beautiful.

As long as it does not in any way affect your health status then rock your style with a bounce under your feet.

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is (Miracle define)… “Talk about the balance of how your size must align with your height”.

And just in case you want to compare with your medical dictionary definition: “Body mass index, or BMI, is a measure of body size. It combines a person’s weight with their height. The results of a BMI measurement can give an idea about whether a person has the correct weight for their height”.

If you fall into the class of unhealthy BMI ( >27kgm sq.), then it is advised you shed some weight. If you must do so, do it beautiful…

    The 4 Myths About Weight Loss

  • Detox tea helps to lose weight

 The whole idea of detox is actually very funny. The body has a well-developed system that has its own built-in mechanism to detoxify and remove waste and toxins.

The body’s main organs of detoxification are the kidney, skin, lungs and gut. Our body constantly filters out, breaks down and excretes toxins and waste products like alcohol, medications, products of digestion, dead cells, chemicals from pollution and bacteria.

  • You can lose 5kg in one week:

You didn’t gain that fat in one day, so it’s not healthy if you go so drastic in losing it. Ideally, you should lose 0.5kg – 1kg per week. You can achieve this by a reduction of 3,500 kilocalories per week from your diet.

  • Intermittent fasting:

When you fast, you tend to reduce rapidly due to the heavy restriction on the intake of energy (calories). But this weight loss is largely water and glycogen (body’s carbohydrate stores), rather than fat.

You tend to feel dizzy and fatigue during this fast, thereby leaving no energy for physical exercise.

  • Ketogenic diet:

By doing this, you by pass the normal metabolic pathway thereby neglecting the body’s normal sources of energy (carbohydrates) and breaking down fats which leads to build up ketones (ketosis).

The prolonged build-up of this ketones leads to ketoacidosis which causes serious havoc for your internal organs.

Ketogenesis is use on epileptic patients because they have more synaptic responses in their brains than normal humans.

These responses are triggered by glucose, which is removed totally from the diet. The patient is closely monitored by a medical team.

Extras…

*Your weight loss journey is not a death sentence, it rather should be enjoyed and should become a lifestyle.

*Weight loss regimes should not be rigid or full of restrictions.

*Take a new habit slowly, set goals for yourself.

* Get yourself a food diary and record your consumption and level of satiety per portion.

* Exercise is very important in weight loss regimens.
