Natural Weight Loss is about combining holistic principles such as finding the cause to your weight gain and thereby following a suitable healthy eating plan, exercising, taking relevant supplements and making other lifestyle adjustments.
Weight gain is the most common health complaint in the Western world. This is because it is primarily a result of overindulgence and eating the incorrect type of foods.
Food is one of the greatest pleasures in life. Our daily lives revolve around socialising and eating. Unfortunately, excess food and limited exercise will result in weight gain and a series of unpleasant health consequences.
The goal to natural weight loss is to adopt healthy principles and make them a part of your everyday life. By eating the correct foods and enjoying regular exercise, your weight will slowly decrease and stay off. You also enjoy the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Other factors that slow the rate of weight loss are sometimes in play. This can be discouraging for people who are doing all the right things but seeing no results. Because there are thousands of different weight loss diets available, you may be too confused to follow one specific dietary regime, choosing instead to try many of them, half-heartedly, to no avail.
Being overweight isn't merely a cosmetic problem. It's also a threat to your long term health. There are many health conditions associated with being overweight. This includes PCOS, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer.
The solution to fast, effective, natural weight loss is not to eat less, but to eat a healthy and nutritious diet. Certainly, weight gain will occur if you eat high amounts of refined carbohydrates. These must be avoided and replaced with unrefined high-fibre carbohydrates. A balanced diet is best, comprised of fresh, preferably organic, raw fruits and vegetables, proteins, unrefined complex carbohydrates and fats. These principles should also be incorporated with a healthy exercise program.
There are many reasons why you may gain weight. The cause may not be one factor but a combination of different ones, including:
For effective, long term weight loss you need to get both your food intake as well as your training program right. A healthy balanced diet along with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body will assist your long term natural weight loss goals.
