Since the Late 1990's people started discussing diets. Reason? Obesity. People were getting obese throughout the world . America is known to have 30% obese people. that's a lot of people who are overweight. A French airliner recently discussed the chance of weight people before boarding and charge extra if they weighed more or if they were known to take more space than the airliner could allot to the person. The US airliners are considering the same option.
Your weight is sooner or later going to add up to your bills. You are going to pay more for hospital bills eventually, but then its going to add up to a lot of other expenses too (not to mention your food bills). the good news though is that many people are becoming more self aware. They now want to start looking healthy. They do want to lose weight. If you consult a general practitioner, a doctor who is pretty good at general health, he would advise you to cut down on your food but also workout. The work out acts as a catalyst to help you lose weight. IF you lost 2 pounds a week with a diet, the chances are you will lose 5 when you add the exercise to it.
A gym membership could cost you a lot , but a walk in the park every morning and evening would cost you time. People don't want to spend more time on being active but have the time to sit in front of a television all day long.
The reason most people choose diet is because they dont feel comfortable working out. They are outright lazy or simply not willing to put in the effort to push the limits. The results are actually not in their favor even with a diet. A normal diet would eventually be very tiring for most people. It would leave you unhealthy and unenergetic throughout the day. Eventually, you will lose interest in the diet and start binge eating, leading you to gain far more than what you lost. Your body will only adjust to the diet for a short while. After that period, you tend to not lose weight and this will result in a plateau.
Most doctors will recommend a lifestyle change. Wake up early, Eat a high energy breakfast with fruits and grains. Take small meal breaks every 3 hours. Do not consume sugar with your coffee. Cut down on those doughnuts. Eat light for supper. Dont consume coffee after 6 pm. Rest well and sleep early. Everything thats recommended is easy to implement. Added with a workout routine, chances are that you will lose more weight than on a diet and even before you know it. Best of all? You will enjoy it throughout.
