Everybody wants to lose weight these days. Yes, obesity increases our risk of developing health problems- you might not be one of them. Here are some reasons you don't actually need to lose any weight.
When patients come to me and say they need to lose weight, my first question is: Why?" Do you need to lose weight to deal with an issue such as diabetes or high blood pressure or hypothyroidism or its just a case of vanity and you want to show your relatives at the wedding that you can fit into a size zero dress. It's important to realize that you're not losing weight in order to be healthy here but it's just a case of vanity.
Focus on maintaining a healthy body weight rather than dieting without reason.
Like it or not, we can't all be thin like your favourite actress—weight is largely determined by your genetics. Two people following the same diet may weight very different. One may lose much more weight than the other. So, be realistic. No two people can be the same.
There are some genes that control everything from the way your metabolism works to your appetite, sense of satiety and even where the fat gets stored in your body. So no matter how much you focus on shedding that weight, there's no guarantee that you'll be a perfect size zero.
Even if you were very thin in your younger days, it's unrealistic to try to diet your way into your jeans from college. You don't need to lose weight is if you're trying to get back to a size you were in your teens or early twenties. From adolescence to your early twenties you will gain a couple of kilos every year. So, focus on maintaining a healthy weight for your age and body type.
Most women I see in my practice or otherwise are unhappy with the way they look. But you know that, don't you? Most of us have heard that little nagging voice in the head tell us that we're too fat. However, it's important to make the distinction between needing to lose weight for health reasons and wanting to lose weight to silence your inner critic. Don't get told by the fashion industry or the advertisements about your body image. Its not about false outward body image but inward beautiful and healthy weight.
Look at what drives you to keep dieting. Do you feel like a winner when your doctor gives you an ok for your health or when your weight drops down another few grams. If you're mostly concerned with the numbers on the scale, you are dealing with a vanity issue and less with a health issue.
With so much emphasis put on losing weight , we can sometimes forget that weight loss isn't the only reason to live a healthy lifestyle. If you're eating healthy and with awareness and exercising every day, and not having ill health then you are healthy. Most people gain a few kilos in their life but still have no health issues. There's a large range of weights that people can be at and be quite healthy.
It's easy to become frustrated when you feel like you're doing everything "right" but the number on the scale still won't budge. The scale doesn't determine how healthy you are. If you've been at this same weight for years, then it doesn't make sense for you to aim for a weight that you have never been- simply put.
So don't give up on eating well and working out if you don't see a drastic drop in your weight—try not to be hooked on to the scale or some fashion trend in body image for a while and you will see that beauty is not skin deep.
The thyroid gland, in the lower front of the neck, releases hormones in the bloodstream that affect almost every part of your body, from your brain and heart, to your skin and muscles. It also controls metabolism which is the process of changing the food you eat into energy. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone, it is called hypothyroidism.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
- Hair loss and dry hair
- Dry skin
- Sensitivity to cold
- Decreased heart rate
- Goitre (swollen thyroid glands)
- Weight gain and difficulty in losing that weight
- Persistent jaundice
Hypothyroidism is not curable, but it can be controlled with the right medication. Along with taking your medicines, you can also adopt the following lifestyle changes:
- Eat right: While there is no specific diet for hypothyroidism, you should consume vegetables, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats and lean proteins. Since gaining weight is a common symptom of hypothyroidism, eating the right things can help you maintain your weight.
- Regular exercise: Exercising can reduce stress, improve energy and help you maintain your optimum weight. Aerobics (for example, cardio), flexibility and strengthening workouts can help with hypothyroidism. Other than that, light weightlifting, yoga and walking, are also beneficial. Do not forget to consult your doctor before you start on any of these exercises.
- Reduce stress: Hypothyroidism is chronic, and the one thing that worsens chronic diseases is stress. Stress has serious repercussions on your overall health. So it is important to reduce your stress as much as you can. Meditate daily, at least for five minutes, and schedule a weekly massage to deal with your stress.
- Get enough sleep: Fatigue is a symptom of hypothyroidism; you feel tired and sluggish throughout the day. The best way to counter this is to establish a schedule for sleeping. Try to sleep and wake up every day at the same time in the night and in the morning. Generally, sleeping for seven to eight hours is recommended. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist and ask a free question.
