Weight Loss Tips


What is Weight Loss

In the context of medicine, health or physical fitness, weight loss is a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue and/or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon and other connective tissue. It can occur unintentionally due to an underlying disease or can arise from a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight or obese state.

Types of Weight Loss

Natural weight loss

Natural weight loss occurs when your body burns more energy than it is supplied with. What I mean by that is that food is the body’s energy source. That is what the purpose of food is basically. Energy is measured in calories so I’m not advocating a calorie counting diet for you when I use the word ‘calorie’. The body burns that energy with every movement. Reach up and scratch your nose and you have burned some energy. Our bodies’ burn energy even without movement. Our brains alone burn about 400 calories a day just thinking. We burn calories when we sleep

Unnatural weight loss

There have been a lot of well publicized weight loss pills and pill combinations in recent years. Many have been proven to be unsafe for extended use while other shave been proven to be down right deadly. When over weight patients ask their doctors for appetite suppressant pills, many times these doctors will quickly prescribe them and then fail to oversee their use or, even worse, they will fail to take their time to counsel their patients on the dangers of using these kinds of drugs.

Benefits of Weight Loss

Attention to diet in particular can be beneficial in reducing the impact of diabetes and other health risks of an overweight or obese individual.

Skipping meals:

Skipping meals can cause your body to go into a fat-storing starvation mode, making it harder to burn calories.


Got nuts with nuts. Eating a handful of nuts will help you stay full. Try soaking them in water for a different texture.

Don’t confuse thirst with hunger. Drink a glass of water when you feel hungry to see if that’s what you’re really craving.

Take Brisk:

Take a brisk walk before lunch or dinner. Not only will you get in some exercise, you’re less likely to choose something unhealthy after a little movement.

Salmon Fish:

Looking for the benefits of salmon but you don’t feel comfortable cooking fish? Try canned salmon as a simple and affordable alternative.

Boost metabolism :

Boost your metabolism with some green tea or chili peppers.

Muscle burns:

Muscle burns at least four times as many calories as fat does, so try twenty minutes of strength straining two to three times a week.

Eating liquid-based foods:

Eating liquid-based foods such as natural smoothies and low-sodium soup can help you cut back on calories yet feel full.
