Should Weight Loss Be Slow Or Fast?


Many people who want to lose weight are tempted to follow a fad diet. These diets promise quick weight loss. However, rapid weight loss is unhealthy. To achieve a quick result, it is necessary to follow a diet low in calories and certainly exclude many foods that will provide essential nutrients to maintain your health.

A Healthy Weight Loss Is Not Just About The Number On The Scale

Healthy weight loss is the maintenance of health and in truth a lifestyle change. The weight loss process should be seen not as a decline in “kilos” or pounds, but a decrease in body fat, with keeping or slightly increasing your muscle mass, as this is the key to keeping weight off in the long term.

A healthy weight loss should be in the range of 0.5 to 1 kg per or 1 to 2 pounds per week. Use of the Body Mass Index BMI will help you to monitor your weight loss. Measuring areas such as the waist and hip circumferences will help you evaluate the amount of fat lost, as they are the most common sites of fat accumulation.

The Loss Of Pounds Does Not Always Mean Loss Of Fat

When you follow a very low calorie diet, weight is down, but not fat. There will be a loss of muscle mass and water and to a lesser extent, of fat. To achieve the decrease of stored fat, it is necessary to perform a modest reduction in calories, for example, about 500-800 calories per day, in relation to your current intake. This may be easily achieved if you swap foods that are high in fat, sugar, sodium and calories for those that are healthier.

Another Important Point Is Eating A Larger Number Of Smaller Meals

Eating 4-6 smaller meals (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner) will keep your metabolism active. Plus this concept is the key behind a weight loss concept and backed by science; blood sugar stabilization! Have not heard that one have you?

Fad diets that involve simply changing your diet for a few weeks and those that are restrictive, do not allow you the re-education of eating habits. They produce a large decrease in basal metabolism (amount of calories needed to maintain vital functions), leading to increasingly restrict the food intake to obtain a positive result. On the other hand, if fatty foods are incorporated in small amounts, for example, in a meal outside home, this cannot be metabolized properly and is deposited as fat.
