Weight Management – 10 Facts to Lose weight

Weight Management – 10 Facts to Lose weight - IDEA clinics

IDEACLINICS has launched a professional evidence based multi disciplinary weight management service. Our team constitutes an experienced team of Endocrinologists, Physicians, Dietitians. Here are the weight management things to consider

1) Mindful eating:

Food is the source for energy, so avoid nutrient dense foods and do not overeat. Emotional eating or eating out of stress is another factor to be aware of.

2) Portion control:

Portion control is most important aspect of dieting. 75% of losing weight constitutes through diet and rest through exercise and other means, and over half of that diet consists of portion control.

3) Become active:

Physical activity is more with the daily habits and routines, whether taking steps instead of lifts, or walking /cycling to work etc. It is a gradual continuous process and can be started slowly and built up rather than hyped up and lose sight of real and achievable goals. There is no real need for fancy gym membership or  the pricey equipment,

4) Stay persistent:

Eat healthy, drink well and workout each day. Even if it is for 30 minutes just one should not give up. It’s not just hitting the gym for half a day but more persistent effort that fetches with desired results.

5) Add movement:

It’s not much about how and when to start, looking for a perfect training plan and a fancy diet regime, and these days with an album of motivational quotes on phones, these are not the prerequisites and it is really much simpler than that. In fact, there is no perfect diet or plan; each individual will have his or her own way of reaching there.  Small things go a long long way, one does not need to sprint and starve to hit the goal, all they need is a little bit of logic, a lot of consistency and a conscious effort to move. Finally, there is no perfect diet or plan – there is only what works for them.

6) No quick fix:

To achieve the goals one has to be REALISTIC, that they can accomplish, achieve and reach. Give the body time to transform, be patient with the progress and stay positive. Every little change can bring closer to the goal. Eat healthy, workout at least 4-5 times a week, incorporating different exercises so that the body keeps using different muscles groups to help burn calories, thus, increasing metabolism.

Starving the body may get the results in a short period of time, but it isn’t sustainable, losing 5kgs in 10 days, working out 3 hours a day, starving the body to get results in a short period of time, the results aren’t sustainable. When the body gives up, one get disheartened and begin to believe it is not possible to sustain and end up falling back on unhealthy habits. The process is long and hard, but the work one puts in will see results in the long run.

7) Long-term goals:

Whether you’re looking to shed fat, gain muscle or improve your overall fitness, Start off slow and build it up, see what works for you. Some people might feel personal training is for them while others enjoy group classes more.

8) Draw a plan:

Each day is an opportunity for self-improvement. One should have a solid plan to begin with and then only you will have a course to be able to stick to. Plan how many times a week you will work out, the approximate duration of the workout, an outline of your daily nutritional requirements to supplement that activity and bring you closer to your goals, etc. Basically, You need a plan.
