Importance of maintaining a healthy weight without weight loss
In the modern world today, the average person buys 4 times the amount of food necessary for living a nutritionally fulfilled life, this not only results in lots of waste, but also overconsumption of carbohydrates and processed sugars. Obesity has over the year become a wide spread morbidity that leads to aggravated forms of comorbidities down the way.
What causes people to become overweight
Gaining weight is a slow process that happens through years of mostly conscious unhealthy life choices. Food is becoming less and less organic, treated with preservatives, genetically modifying foods to reduce costs and improve yield, but all these come at the cost of potentially making consumers more prone to disease. Weight gain happens when a person consumes more calories than they burn, the excess being stored as fat.
Why some people struggle losing weight
There could be a multitude of factors involved making weight loss more difficult such as:
- Thyroid deficiency
- Slow metabolism
- Digestive complications
- Sleep apnea
- Alcohol consumption
What are real ways of cutting down weight
In simple words, the equation for fat loss in calories in versus calories out all relative to your basal metabolic rate.
We do have a BMI calculator incorporated in our software, which can be used in the “Demographics” section, when introducing data about a patient.
Being in a caloric deficit is the only real way to lose weight, there are multiple ways of inducing a deficit. Supplementation can also help with fat mobilization and increasing metabolism, most effective being:
- CLA (reduces appetite)
- Chromium Picolinate
Conclusively paying attention to what you eat is very important because of how easily one can get used to bad eating habits. Obesity is the number of comorbidity responsible for deaths in first world countries.
