Some practical and real life TIPS about weight loss by Lavleen (Dietician in Chandigarh) – MUST READ
Think fat loss, not weight loss. Weight loss is loss of muscle mass + loss of body water + loss of bone density + loss of weight of other body parts. Fat loss is fat loss and this is what you should be aiming for!
Safest way to lose weight is to eat healthy and exercise moderately.
Don’t diet, rather eat correct food! Other wise you will be stuck in the cycle of losing weight and re-gaining it. Make healthy eating your lifestyle.
Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going.
LOSE WEIGHT QUICK! Sounds good? Yes but its a fail. Don’t try to lose weight quickly. You will regain more than you were before. Safest weight loss is not more than 4 kgs a month.
Don’t go for any therapies – laser, lipolysis or anything that involves physical alteration to your body to lose weight. These are the worst and cost you a nightmare.
Walk daily. Just by walking daily for 45 minutes, a man can lose 3 kgs a month. For women, its a different story. Read here why?
Weight loss is not hard. Just get out of your bed, forget your smart phone or smart device for at least an hour a day, and go for a walk, job, cycling, climbing, skipping. If you are determined and set a goal, you will almost always achieve it.
Don’t just do a Google search for weight loss diet and start following it. Like every body is different, metabolic rates and digestive systems are different too! A diet chart is not same for every body. You may adversely affect your body and health instead of just losing weight. Consult a certified dietitian or a nutritionist who can offer you customized diet plans based on your body analysis and medical history.
