Lifestyle Habits Required for Permanent Weight Loss

Recently the World Health Organization has raised the alarm because of the rising incidence of obesity and the health risks that come with it. Excess body fat is a major health risk factor along with the damage of heart disease and cancer. Obesity has doubled every five years. Also it is estimated that close to 20 percent of school-age children are obese not overweight. Because of poor physical activity habits, excess television viewing, too much Web surfing, too many video games, and junk-food addiction and other poor nutritional habits.

Grievously, most people won’t change the “lifestyle” habits and look to the “quick fix” procedures to remove body fat overnight. There is no quick and easy remedies to this problem. It’s YOUR LIFESTYLE, and is based on arithmetic and biochemistry. One pound of fat contains 3500 calories. To gain one pound of fat, you intake 3500 calories (Calories not spent in daily work output). To lose a pound of fat you must intake less than the 3500 calories. (Burn more than you eat)

An exception occurs when you follow a “Ketogenic” diet (as in the Atkins or Protein Power) – a high protein, and low carbohydrate intake. Ketogenic diets produce and cause you to expel Ketone bodies ( incomplete metabolism of fat) that still contain calories. Fat will be lost that is not accounted for in energy expenditure. Although Ketogenic diets are generally not dangerous, the nutritional imbalances requiring lots of supplements and these programs are difficult to follow, often produce temporary results and are usually accompanied by bad breath and body odor (Ketones don’t smell nice).

Losing weight is a simple process but you have to be patient. It took you years to put it there so don’t expect it to leave overnight. This entire issue deals with insulin control and lactic acid control. Insulin is the hormone produced in response to blood sugar and is responsible for removing sugar (glucose – the product of carbohydrates from the digestive process) from the blood. If you don’t produce enough insulin – you die but if you over produce, you become obese or very resistant and other health problems arise like Type II Diabetes.

When the glycogen (storage form of sugar) levels in the muscles and liver are satisfied, the remainder is converted to fat and stored as tri-glycerides in the body fat. When you are not physically active the glycogen storage remain full so fat storage become prevalent. With chronic high carbohydrate consumption it will lead to chronically elevated levels of insulin. When your insulin level is up you will not burn fat, you will feel hungry, and the liver will produce more cholesterol, tri-glycerides will be high and you risk many inflammatory conditions like asthma, arthritis, psoriasis, and migraines. So if you want to be healthy and lose fat you need to control the insulin your body produces.

When a using the normal circumstances of sitting, standing and walking, unless you just eat or drink extra carbohydrates, almost 85% of your energy comes from fat. Fat is the energy source of a resting body. When running a marathon 50% of you energy comes from fat. The more you exercise the more fat you will burn. The better control you have of your insulin the less fat your body will store. Nonetheless, the 3500 calorie deficit rule still applies. So a 1,000/day calorie diet, creating a 200-500 calorie/day deficit, it would take 7 – 17 days to lose a pound of fat. If you added 400 non-carbohydrate calories and daily exercise (approximately 3 miles equivalent) you could lose one more pound per week.

It’s advised that exercise be at a conversational intensity to avoid producing lactic acid. Lactic acid, a product of high intensity exercise, also inhibits the mobilization of fat for energy. Losing two pounds per week, if you are diligently exercising, should make you happy because you did it the healthy way and it will become your lifestyle. Your current weight is a product of and supported by your lifestyle. Change your lifestyle. There are no true quick fix solutions.
