This write up was done after intensive research with respected and notable nutritionist both in the medical world and in the educational world.
I believe we understand the basis and foundation of obesity and even the risks However, the persistent question on my mind is; Can the causing factor also be the curing factor?
OBESITY AND FOOD
Before I give you a summary of what obesity is, I would love to remind you that the blog is not a scientific blog; if you love to read more, links will be given to you.
It’s focus is food and it’s written so even a layman will be able to read and understand and make reasonable changes where needed.
Ok! Let’s go on…
OBESITY, which is the leading disease that is preventable or treatable, is the addition of excess fat to the body till it starts making the body malfunction. It’s the source of uncountable diseases from artherosclerosis to diabetes etc
Do you want to know if you are one or coming close? Simple!
Divide your body weight against your height. (Metres square) For example, I’m 90 by weight and 6ft in metres should be around 1.7m. multiply 1.7 by itself and divide it by your weight and you will know if you are normal, slightly overweight, overweight, obese or very obese.
25-30 is the range of from over weight to obese. 30 upward is range of obese to very obeae.
So let’s say I’m nearing overweight and caution needs to be taken.
What makes FAT so hard to eradicate?
Fat has so many uses in the body. Infact, without the normal body fat, the body might suffer different complication.
Before I let you into the reason fat is hard to lose, let me share their functions with you.
Some of the functions of fat in the body are;
1. They are heat absorbers. They are located around most organs like kidney, heart etc because their work produces heat and something needs to be done to absorb it
2. They store up in the body and get converted to energy and nutrients when the body is not well nourished . This is why people lose weight when fasting or are in places where there is no food or water. Their body fats gets converted to nutrients that helps to nourish the body
3. They underline the skin where they help maintain regular body temperature.
Let’s stop here… Read more yourself.
Fat is hard to eradicate because unlike salt and other substance that can be expelled by urination, sweating, crying etc, they have no OUTLET. They have to be burnt and incoming source of fat has to be lowered or cut off.
According to science, human store most of their fat in their buttocks, breast and stomach.
Now let’s go to the reason we are here;
HOW TO BURN OUT FAT WITHOUT TOO MUCH EXERCISE
Note: These are not for people who doesn’t want to put in the work and discipline it takes. If you are one, please stop reading!
Also, it took you several months or years to gain up the weight so don’t expect a one week solution. It takes a process of diligently coming down over a period of time and these have no side effects on the body.
Measures to take to lose fat without or with less exercise
to know more on how to but to summarise;
*Wake up in the morning and drink as much water as you can
* Wait for an hour before you eat. (That’s it majorly)
Functions Of Water Therapy
From experience, it will kill your strong urge for food, junks and sugary foods. You eat less.
Since it has been researched that the major cause of obesity is food, taking water will cut down the amount of food you take and still make you feel filled (Not hungry).
2. STOP BEING SEDENTARY
Even if your work calls for it, always find a time to move around and expend energy.
Make sure you take any opportunity to walk around. Make sure you sweat in a day.
Yes! You can call it exercise but it is light exercise. Make sure you are not seated in a place all day.
Don’t be lazy. Engage in skipping when less busy, go on a walk and meditate, intentionally, clean your house, wash your car.
Do something that get your blood moving fast. Engage your self in judo classes, dancing class, community service or any sport you love just for the fun of it.
As you are doing this and enjoying it, you are burning off fat. Just REFUSE TO BE SEDENTARY!!!!!
3. DITCH FRIED FOODS; DO GRILLS
If you are so into fried foods, you can try using non-cholesterol oils however if you can, dump foods with high cholesterol. Remember, we are on a journey and determination helps you do this.
CHOLESTEROL (A short summary)
Cholesterol is a fatty substance made by the body to produce some hormones and maybe vitamins.
It’s very essential in the body However, too much of it will for plaques around artery wall thereby shortening the space blood is passing.
Blood realising this will want to force itself through thereby causing heart related problems like artherosclerosis.
So eat good oils (Non-cholesterols) or do Grills!
4. VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
I wrote extensively on this and you can check by clicking here… Fruits and vegetables
They are rich in fibres, anti oxidants and vitamins that not only balances your food intake and enhances digestion but also prevents the build up of sugar in your body which will eventually be converted to fat if not used.
Probably they have told you but you feel they are exaggerating or you are procastinating about stopping or reducing it, let me inform you; Sugar is at the core of obesity.
Sugar through a process called Lipogenesis is turned to fat and stored or used in the body. The whole shady deal occurs in the liver when it metabolises fructose or sucrose into fat.
Sugar will not be left unused in the body; so when there is excess of it, it get converted to fat and get stored in the body.
Now, sugar doesn’t only causes obesity, sugar also causes diabetes and high blood pressure. Not stopping there, this same sugar also affect your Sterility as a man. TOO MUCH SUGAR IS BAD!!!
*Cut the sodas
* Cut the diary products with lots of sugar
* Cut alcohol (beer); contains sugar too. Alcohol (spirit) weakens your kidney.
* Cut raw sugar intake. Sweet things are cool but not worth my life.
6. OVER EATING
It has been written like a program in the body that any unused food digested as glucose (which is supposed to provide energy for the body) should be converted to fat. So;
* Eat small to fill your stomach and don’t over eat
* Make sure you feel hungry before you eat. Your body must digest the previous food and demand for another before you give. Stop stuffing your stomach and eventually, your body with unused glucose. It will be stored as fat.
7. SELF PSYCH EVALUATION
This might seem strange to you but I will explain. Except your cause of obesity is DNA related or others that needs medical expertise, this works most times.
Self psych evaluation is self motivation to become a better you. Sometimes you need the help of a loved one to achieve this.
1. You speak out what you want.
2. You develop control over your MOUTH. It can be extremely difficult. You might cry many times when the urge comes extremely strong on you but for the joy of the result, you must stand your ground. If what is killing is what you use YOUR HAND to put into YOUR MOUTH, then it can be controlled.
You own your body, your body doesn’t own you. Command it to do your biddings because if you don’t, your body and lack of self control is KILLING YOU AND YOU MIGHT DIE. SO TECHNICALLY, ITS A WAR AGAINST YOURSELF.
SO FIGHT BACK AND LET GO OF THOSE FAT!
* EAT JUST WHAT YOU NEED AND FOLLOW THE TIPS I JUST GAVE YOU. I LOVE YOU AND I SINCERELY HOPE FOR A GOOD NEWS!
