A slender and attractive figure is a dream of every person. It’s not surprising that it makes men and women attractive in the eyes of each other, normal weight is also a key to health, good mood and the feeling of harmony.
Nevertheless, the problem of obesity of the population is becoming more and more acute every year. Despite the fact that obesity is often connected with a metabolic disorder, a disease or a genetic predisposition, most of the cases occur because of a violation of the elementary rules for maintaining normal weight.
So, what are these “enemies” of slim figure?
Lack of Physical Exercises
Ask any trainer, and he will say that even the most proper food will not save you from extra pounds if you do not move. Move a lot! However, it is not necessary to have fitness seven times a week or obligatory go to the gym to achieve good results. The best alternative is running or outdoor activities. In sports, as in life, the rule works: the result comes when you make an effort.
We often do not suspect how many calories are hidden in harmless drinks – cappuccino on the way to work, ginger lemonade from a Japanese restaurant near the house and, of course, in sweet soda. The problem of all these drinks is that our body does not perceive them as food, and therefore the feeling of fullness after them does not last long. Moreover, drinking of soda can result in increased intoxication and increased fermentation in the body. As soon as fermentation intensifies, calories begin to be consumed slowly, which means that some of them are deposited as fat. The caloric “cost” of a soda bottle at the same time is equal to 100 grams of fried chicken (about 210 calories). The best drink for losing weight is ordinary water.
The Refusal from Fats
We are afraid to eat food containing fat, but not all fats are equally harmful. We avoid butter, beef, mutton fat, lard, but actively dress salads and other dishes with vegetable oil. However, all fats are absorbed by 50-80%, and vegetable fats by 98%. Pay special attention to “useful fats” – mainly fatty acids – which must be present in the diet in sufficient quantities. They can be obtained from salmon, mackerel, tuna, nuts and avocado.
TV and Internet Addiction
Sitting in front of the computer, of course, will not help you to get rid of excess weight. Sedentary lifestyle and the lack of physical activity do not contribute to weight loss, but, on the contrary, we can easily “hang” extra pounds on ourselves. And how else can we call thoughtless eating of cookies, crisps, crackers and other completely non-dietary “yummies”, while sitting in front of the monitor or enthusiastically watching a serial? Our brain receives a signal about saturation only 20 minutes after its actual onset. Moreover, the saturation signal is so weak that it can easily be “hammered” by signals of attention or interest that arise during the viewing of web pages.
Smoking is not only harmful to health, but in addition, a person who smokes falls into a trap. It is proved that the rejection of cigarettes contributes to the emergence of unnecessary pounds. As a result, fear of getting excess weight makes many people, especially girls, continue to smoke.
Therefore, in order not to drive yourself into a vicious circle, it is better not to get used to smoking or to give up this habit as soon as possible.
Thus, the pledge of a slender figure will be a victory over its worst enemies, which is in fact a victory over ourselves, our habits, weakness and laziness. And if you want to achieve the most notable and rapid results, you can involve “big guns” – weight loss supplements or plastic surgery. The results will surely motivate you to keep what has been achieved and stay in good shape for many years.
