An effective weight loss program has never been so crucial. There are innumerable weight loss programs on offer, each with a different composition of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. So what is wholesome and effective is a difficult decision.
The stress on having a perfect shape has been pushed to the level of obsession for many and keeps others on the toes. Be it a strict diet plan which starves the body’s resources or a self-imposed strenuous exercise schedule, for many losing weight is the ultimate goal which has to be achieved through any means.
However, the results of such ill considered plans are loss of stamina, depletion of vital nutrients and a general risk to good health. That is why should consider not just a weight loss plan but a comprehensive lifestyle plan to suit your body’s requirements.
More than 50 million Americans are choosing one or the other weight loss program every year. The important question is how many of these will choose a plan that will do more good than bad to their bodies in the long run. In fact, seen against the background of general hysteria, the actual success rates are disappointingly low.
One of the prime reasons for this is the lack of patience and quick switching between many weight loss programs. You have to realize that you have not gained weight in a short period nor can you lose it in a few days without any negative effects. It takes time, effort and commitment lose weight the right way.
Low intake of calorie is as important as higher rate of calorie burning for effective weight loss. Compromising on any one of these can be perilous. Sudden and radical changes in your diet plans are not very effective in the long term too. As soon as you resort back to your regular diet, you will also start getting back to the shape that you had so painfully lost. In fact, these ‘crash’ stop working after a few rounds of weight loss and gain.
That is why ‘crash diets’ can be seen as a good beginning but if the effects have to be sustained over a period of time, it has to be followed by long term changes in diet and exercise plans. The ideal weight loss plan makes you lose about one pound per week. This is not just healthy but also sustainable.
Any program which claims to make you lose weight in effortless, quick and guaranteed manner is essentially a fraud. Even though science is improving at a fast pace and the history of humans holds many secrets, there are no magic pills either in the arena of science, history or alternate medicine, at least not yet. So if there is some claiming any of these ‘secrets’ walk away from the deception.
