Why Dieting Fails & Lifestyle Changes Win?

Why Dieting Fails & Lifestyle Changes Win?

Dieting has become synonymous with weight loss. Many people believe that giving up on the tasty and lip-smacking cuisines and delicacies can help them to get back in shape. From living on fruits and vegetables to almost starving themselves, people try different forms of dieting to lose weight. Most people start dieting with a bang but lose their focus and determination in between. In this regard lifestyle habits surely earn brownie points. More and more people are implementing healthy lifestyle practices in their lives. These changes have made their lives a lot easier. What is more, it also takes care of their body weight

As per a survey, many people quit dieting within a week. People often starve themselves in the name of dieting. Needless to say, they not only fail to lose weight but also end up with numerous side effects and health complications. Dieting is all about eating the right kind of foods in appropriate quantities as per your body requirements. There are many reasons why dieting often fails.

  1. Starting with a diet plan without consulting a specialist in itself is a wrong approach. Every person has different body structure and requirements. What works for one person may fail for another.
  2. Many people with strict dieting often experience diet withdrawal symptoms. They get mood swings, suffer from skin problems, digestive problems, feel weak and dizzy. In some, there may be a brain fog. Under extreme conditions, people have no other options but to give up dieting.
  3. Dieting can be a struggle for people whose life revolved around food binging. Having to give up on their favorite foods is no joke. The cravings can drive them crazy. Add to that, social functions, peer pressure, birthday parties, and weddings. The only outcome possible is dieting long gone down the drain.

While dieting can end on a disastrous note for most people, healthy lifestyle practices gives you a lot of reasons to cheer about. Healthy changes in lifestyle habits have helped many people to stay fit and healthy, and most importantly, maintain a desirable body weight.

  1. Making changes in lifestyle habits is no Herculean task. Many people have benefited immensely by making small yet effective lifestyle changes.The lifestyle habits like meditation or swimming are neither drastic or harsh. In fact, these are known to be great mood enhancers and stress busters.
  2. Everyone knows the health benefits of sleeping. From stress to weight problems, it takes care of everything. A sound sleep and proper rest are lifestyle practices that most people will love to follow.
  3. Healthy lifestyle practices can be fun and yet rewarding. It comes with negligible or no side effects.
  4. Unlike dieting, the lifestyle habits are not only healthy but also easy on the body. They are here to stay not for days or weeks, but for as long as you live.

Gymming & Exercise - Why It's A False Promise In Case Of Weight Loss?

Gymming & Exercise - Why It's A False Promise In Case Of Weight Loss?

If only losing weight was as easy as gaining it, people would have been a lot happier in their lives. Maintaining a healthy body weight has become very important. In addition to the physical discomfort, being obese or overweight can invite innumerable health complications. From diabetes to cardiac problems, menstrual problems to reproductive disorders, the list is endless. Unhealthy lifestyle habits and practices make things even worse. As per a survey, obesity is on a mercurial rise, wreaking havoc like never before. The condition is particularly affecting children and teenagers. It can often be really painful to see them suffer so much because of obesity.

Since time immemorial, we were made to believe that physical activities such as exercise and gymming play a pivotal role, assisting millions of people to lose weight effectively. Nobody ever felt the need to challenge the credibility of this fact. We were too happy to follow the belief blindly. The hardcore fitness freaks swear by the health benefits of exercises and gymming. Now here comes a shocker, recent studies suggest that exercise or gymming does little to help you shed the extra pounds. Yes, you heard it right! Research in the UK and USA have come up with this shocking fact that is sure to break many hearts.

There is no denying the fact that exercise and gymming is a healthy practice. People with cardiac problems, dementia, anxiety, to name a few, definitely benefit from exercises. It has made pregnancy a lot easier for many pregnant women. However, when it comes to weight loss, the contribution is almost negligible. Many people have the misconception that obesity is mainly due to lack of physical activity and exercise. If that was the case then physically fit people would never put on any weight, which is not always the case. Obesity can be an indication and an outcome of some serious health complications, such as PCOS (PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome), hypothyroidism, cushing's syndrome, to name a few. In such cases, exercise may help to lose some weight, but only when supplemented along with proper medications and treatment.

Many health and fitness institutes and organizations guarantee 100% success and fruitful results for people dealing with obesity. It would be extremely foolish on your part to buy their words without getting yourself medically examined. A timely diagnosis and treatment will automatically be helpful to deal with the situation better. Gymming or exercise helps to lose weight when amalgamated with a proper diet and healthy lifestyle practices. A strong determination and willpower are equally important for weight loss.

Losing weight may be difficult, but not impossible. Have patience, lead a healthy life, eat a healthy and balanced diet. Exercise, but do not depend on it to work miracles for you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Intermittent Fasting The Best Tool To Fight Obesity And Diabetes!

Intermittent Fasting The Best Tool To Fight Obesity And Diabetes!

In the earlier days, the food was not as readily available as it is today. For that reason, our ancestors probably did not eat every day. This has made the idea of intermittent fasting popular as a way of losing excess weight and reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes. Intermittent fasting involves eating a regular diet for five days of a week and lowering your calorific intake to 25% of your usual intake for the remaining two days.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of this diet.

  1. Weight lossBy fasting intermittently, you are not starving your body but increasing your metabolism rates. This is because when your calorific intake reduces, so does the body’s insulin levels. At the same time, the growth hormone levels may increase. Simultaneously, norepinephrine is sent to the fat cells by the nervous system to break down fat cells into fatty acids that can be used to release energy. As a result of these changes, the rate at which fat burns increases considerably. Thus, while no muscle weight is lost, there could be significant weight loss due to the loss of fat.
  2. Reduced triglyceride and cholesterol levels: When you are forced to lower your calorific intake without compromising on nutrition for your body, your diet will include more fresh fruits and vegetables instead of refined carbs and processed foods. These foods have a low-fat value and bad cholesterol value. However, they do contain good cholesterol that helps remove bad cholesterol from the body and reduce triglyceride levels.
  3. Lower blood pressure: Your diet plays an important role in controlling hypertension. Fasting for one or two days a week can cleanse your system and be very beneficial in lowering blood pressure levels. This is because it increases resistance to oxidative stress and helps reduce inflammation. Lowering of blood pressure levels is also one of the effects of weight loss. Thus, intermittent fasting helps lower blood pressure both directly and indirectly.
  4. Reduced risk of diabetes: Lowering a number of calories being consumed can reduce insulin resistance and in turn lower blood sugar levels. This can protect a person against type 2 diabetes and reduce their risk of suffering from this condition. It also protects a person against kidney damage. However, this effect of intermittent fasting is seen more in men than in women.
  5. Improved brain functioning: Intermittent fasting can also benefit the brain. While it reduces oxidative stress and inflammation, it can promote the growth of new nerve cells that boost brain functioning. In addition, it increases the level of hormones such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (32, 34, 35) that helps prevent depression and other issues.

There are many other variations of intermittent fasting. It is firmly rooted in our Indian tradition too. Eating once a day on certain days of month or week, doing navratri fast etc are some forms of intermittent fasting. There are many scientific protocols developed in recent years to this effectively and result oriented manner. World over intermittent fasting is used by health practitioners to reverse diseases and restore health. All the best!

Stress And Sleep - The Hidden Factors Behind Weight Gain!

Stress And Sleep -  The Hidden Factors Behind Weight Gain!

If you are sticking to your diet chart and slogging hard at the gym, yet the body refuses to shed any weight, it is time to rethink about the whole schedule. A microscopic vision on diet and exercise may not always be the right way to go in the endeavor of losing weight. There are factors such as sleep deprivation and high amount of stress that could over-write other factors and play a crucial hand in increasing weight. Here is a brief idea on tackling issues like these:

Sleep is a crucial factor: If you are finding it difficult to avoid the mid-afternoon slump just after lunch and there is a craving for sweet at the same time, do not curse yourself. It is very natural. The combination of carbs and sleep deprivation can be a deadly combination. A Harvard study conducted in the year 2004 found that men of the average age of 22 with a normal Body Mass Index (BMI), suffering from sleep deprivation tend to face appetite and hunger issues. Another eye-opener from the same study was that the appetite of these lot is always directed to dense energy foods and high carbohydrate foods. The hunger often hits in the afternoon.

While this is a relatively new area of research, it is pretty evident that hormonal intervention is a key component of weight gain. Less than adequate sleep means a decrease in leptin and an increase in ghrelin hormone. The first hormone increases hunger and the second hormone increase appetite. Other studies conducted by the Stanford University and the University of Wisconsin found that people who had less than 7.7 hours of sleep have a higher body mass index compared to their counterparts. Simply put, if the body does not rest sufficiently, it draws its energy from food. This results in weight gain.

Stress is bad news: The late-night sleeping woes are largely blamed upon stress and rightly so. Stress can have a profound impact on the body. It changes the body hormone and invites several unwanted diseases. Cortisol is the hormone that helps an individual to manage stress by providing extra energy. As it turns out, people suffering a high amount of stress daily fails to utilize the high amount of energy that cortisol produces. The excess cortisol released through hormones such as the serotonin and insulin can slow down the metabolic function of the body, imbalance the blood sugar level, increases cravings and hunger. Extra cortisol can notch up the belly and the waist by a few inches resulting in cardiovascular diseases for many. New research has reported that people who can handle stress better, has a 60 percent lesser risk of cardiovascular diseases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

You just need to lose 4 to 5 kg of weight. Eliminate all sugar and sweet food from your diet and eat salad with lunch and dinner. This is best for refucing belly fat. If you are already doing this than a metabolic and hormonal assessment will help to decide what kind of detail diet plan has to be created for you.

Hi lybrate-user, it is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Continue to avoid all junk food and all kind of sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Don't eat multiple times. Eat only 2 or 3 times a day. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibers, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back within no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health. Running 10 km per day is wonderful. You are on right track. Do that at least 4 times per week. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some lifestyle medicine expert who can help you in this over extended period of time my best wishes to you.

Hello lybrate-user, based on your medical problems and weight gain in central part of your body, I suspect that your obesity is driven by hormones rather than excessive calorie consumption. Your diet style should be according to the root cause of obesity. Merely walking and eating low fat, low calorie food is therefore not very effective. Proper diagnosis and customised approach involving nutritional changes, graded exercise, meditation for stress management and sleep improvement is needed. This is called lifestyle medicine. Best wishes.

Recently I have realized that I am becoming more anxious about things, thinking too much about things and not feeling like doing social interactions at my new job which I joined in December last year. I sometimes feel I am not able to motivate myself to excel. I know what is to be done but do not have the motivation energy to achieve the goal. I do not like my present condition specially the dirty chaotic environment which India is providing. I dream of settling in a quite calm place like ooty or dharamshala. I am at 104 kgs weight but other checks are normal. Can my excess weight is strongly related to these feelings?

You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8 minute workout. Pick one which you like and can do.

Hi lybrate-user, any exercise which makes you jump will not allow your planter fasciitis for sure. You need to take break for couple of months from bokwa. Most people have hormonal issue underlying their weight problem and simply doing exercise for 45-60 min per day is not very effective for weight loss. Deciding a diet plan as per your metabolic profile is most effective tool for sustainable weight loss without struggling with hunger or low energy. Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibers, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity.

Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some lifestyle medicine expert who can help you in this over extended period of time.

Hello, I understand your concern. Most people who are fat are made to feel that it is because you lack will power, you are lethargic and a weak person. But that is definitely not true. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibers, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8 minute workout. Pick one which you like and can do.
