Weight Loss

ScalesWeight Loss refers to someone losing body weight. In today's society the quest for weight loss is very much apparent with many of us looking to lose weight, striving to achieve the perfect figure.

Weight Loss can be achieved a number of ways. Many people choose to go on a calorie controlled diet, or alter their diet radically - restricting certain food types and groups. Dieting can lead to weight loss but maintenance of the weight loss is often harder to achieve.

Weight Loss through dieting alone can be dangerous if weight loss is sudden and essential vitamins and minerals are not gained from the restricted diet. There has been much criticism of weight loss induced by low carbohydrate diets and very sudden weight loss can force the body into starvation mode causing your body to adjust it's metabolic rate in response to the weight loss and to ensure that their is still enough energy to perform the body's vital functions.

Safe weight loss can be achieved through a combination of diet and exercise. The term diet here refers simply to the diet we eat - what we eat. In order to achieve safe weight loss we need to burn more calories than we consume. Therefore by increasing our activity and the level of exercise we perform will enable us to lose weight. Weight Loss can be accelerated further by slightly decreasing our portion sizes so that we are eating less than before.

Recommended safe weight loss is between 1-2 lbs a week, however if someone has more weight to lose, weight loss may be significantly higher than this initially.
