Deciding to lose weight, we often act imprudently, and this leads to the exact opposite result – the weight grows. What are we doing wrong? We got on the scales and finally decided: it’s time to diet. Fortunately, there are hundreds of them now, so there is plenty to choose from. However, the practice of many nutritionists, to whom people come after unsuccessful attempts at losing weight, shows: most uncomfortable options tend to choose the majority of us. Such diets can be “hungry”, with a sharply reduced calorie intake. Or may consist of products that a person can not tolerate. Or assume the strictest counting of calories, points, numbers, as a result of which a simple lunch turns into a difficult task, like filling an annual report. One way or another, they are capable of significantly complicating life and bring a lot of torment, both physical and mental.
Oddly enough, this has its own logic. Wanting to lose weight, dream to change, but to do it without straining at all is strange. No matter how a person is imbued with the idea of losing weight, he cannot bear discomfort for a long time, so the enthusiasm of the first days is quickly replaced by the feeling that deprivation is unbearable. So it ends with a breakdown, overeating and the return of some kilograms. If the diet at the same time was low-calorie, most likely, you will gain more than it was before. After all, the body perceives malnutrition as a threat to life and begins to adapt, slowing down the metabolism. When returning to a comfortable diet, the exchange does not activate immediately, continues to work in a sluggish mode, putting energy back into reserve.
What should I do?
Extreme diets are not the most effective, but nutrition systems that you can stick to all your life without experiencing negative emotions.
Your actions WORK-OUT
Of course, you know: to lose weight, you need not only eat less, but move more. No problem – a subscription to the fitness club has been bought and you have been spending evenings there every day for a couple of weeks without a single day off. It’s hard for you, because you are not used to such activity. But the goal justifies all costs.
And here is the result!
The most unpleasant outcome of such zeal may be injury. Intense training affects the joints of even a slender person. With an excess of kilograms, excessive load on the musculoskeletal system is destructive. Especially since people are not always doing the exercises correctly through unaccustomed use. Excessive zeal in the gym and on the heart negatively affects.
The second option – aversion to fitness. If the activity itself is not very pleasant, it is not enough for losing weight for a long time, and after a week or two of non-vigorous training, you throw them so that you will never return to them. Period.
And finally, the third option is success: the kilograms go away and the person acquires the desired figure. The only problem is that after this many people stop classes. And the body is not able to maintain the achieved weight even with restrictions in the diet and under certain intensity.
HOW should I do?
Restrict workouts 2-3 times a week, and on other days just to keep household activity: take half-hour walks, do household chores, if possible, walk a few floors of stairs. This will reduce the risk of injury and psychological fatigue from classes.
In this case, choose a workout in the fitness club should be based on their interests. Shock step aerobics may help burn more calories than measured yoga, but if you don’t like to walk on the platform, you will not attend classes for a long time.
Also, you should consult ,before starting workouts, with your doctor (especially if you have pronounced excess weight). Assessing the resources of your body, you will be able to recommend an adequate load. Gradually, it can be increased without exposing the body to unnecessary risk.
