Honest Answers About Weight Loss

People who need to lose weight are finding that they receive a lot of mixed messages about what the best way to do that might be. They are told to move more and to eat less, but they aren’t really told what that will get them, which one is more important, and whether there are other factors at work. Because of that they start eating better and getting some exercise but they still don’t lose weight, so they get frustrated and give up before they ever really get started.

First of all, you have to remember that it took time to put the weight on, so it’s going to take time to get the weight off, as well. Also, you need to remember that there are some medical conditions, such as a sluggish thyroid, that can keep you from losing weight. If you don’t know whether you have any of these conditions, you might not be able to lose weight the way you would like and you’ll just get upset and angry.

Avoid that and have a check-up. You’ll know whether there are any problems and you can address them with the right kind of diet and exercise.

    what nutritional advise would you give to the muslims in the world who are fasting at this period of the year?I have noticed with quiet a few of them as to how,as soon as the fast opens,they consume high sugar-content food.Could this be detrimental for their health as they have not eaten throughout the day?Thank you

    As a former horseracing jockey I never struggled with my weight by applying the following balanced food intake formula;

    15% fats, 35% sugars, 50% proteins.

    If your physical activity is low, don’t exceed 1200 calories a day, it it is high you can go up till 2200 calories a day always implementing the above formula.

    Overweight will melt away week after week.

    I don’t eat the best but I do stick to the math. I know that one pound is equal to about 3500 calories so I just add the calories I eat and subtract calories I exercise off and try to make sure I am balanced or a little in deficit! It works for me.
