The rise in the number of fast foods joints
that have a lot of saturated fat in the meals,
the use of a lot of refined sugar
in sodas and other processed foods
and eating food with less fiber
have all contributed to the fact that
there are more people than before
who are classified as either overweight or are obese.

A lot of other factors cause this to happen
such as genetics, overeating and as people age;
the metabolism slows down
making it harder than before to burn the food
that was just consumed.

The rate that a person loses weight
is commensurate to how it is gained.
Rapid weight is not good advisable
since it leaves the person with lose skin
and the only way to get rid of that would require surgery.

Weight loss depends on the condition
of the person which includes weight,
health, calorie-intake, age,
gender, lifestyle, stress level and routine.

Being overweight does not necessarily make a person unhealthy.
It just makes the person a bit unfashionable.
Studies have shown that
people who are a bit overweight
live longer than those who have normal weight.

There is no quick or overnight solution for quick weight loss.

Nutritionists and other health experts
will say that a person’s weight
with proper exercise
can actually help lose a certain number of pounds per week.
The best way to do this is with a low calorie diet and an exercise plan.

The first thing a person needs to do
is to choose a diet program
designed by a dietitian or another health professional.
The patient has to be evaluated before any program can be made.

The program usually consists of an eating plan
and an exercise program
that does not require the use of supplements
or one to purchase any expensive fitness equipment.

The best exercise plan should have cardiovascular
and weight training exercises.
This helps burn calories
and increase the muscle to fat ratio
that will increase ones metabolism and lose weight.

A good diet should have food from all the food groups.

This is made up by 2 things. The first is carbohydrates.
The food that a person consumes
should have vitamins, minerals and fiber.

A lot of this can come from oats, rice, potatoes and cereals.
The best still come from vegetables and fruits
since these have phytochemicals,
enzymes and micronutrients
that are essential for a healthy diet.

The second is fat
which can come from mono and poly saturated food sources
rather than animal fats.
Since fat contains more than double the number of calories in food,
this should be taken in small quantities to lose weight.

All diet plans are designed
to make the person induce reduced amount of calories into the body.
This does not mean that the person has to eat less.

It just means that one has to eat smart
by choosing the foods that have less calories.
This makes it possible for someone
to lose weight without the need to eat less.

During the course of the program,
the person should still consult with the doctor
and other health experts to monitor ones progress.
There will be times that it is essential
to modify the diet plan to further lose weight.

It is up to the person already
to stick to the program to see that it works.
