In a scientific light, health, medicine, and physical fitness withstanding, weight loss can be described as the as a reduction in total body weight. The loss in weight can be attributed to mostly loss of body fat or body fluid as well as lean mass such as tissue, bone marrow, and muscles. This phenomenon can occur due to malnutrition, disease, or a conscious effort by an individual to lose weight arguably due to being overweight or obese. This premeditated weight loss is most often referred to as slim. The incomprehensible loss in weight usually not due to body exercise or calorie intake can be termed as cachexia in medical, scientific terms. In the end, there are lots of various reasons for weight loss, or a reduction in scale weight, and not all are necessarily healthy. A loss of healthy lean muscle tissue is probably not a good thing unless you were a weightlifter or bodybuilder with excess muscle to shed in the first place. Most of us aren’t in that group. Let’s look deeper at what type of weight we should really be losing.
Fat loss is biologically explained as lipolysis which is basically the process of breaking down fat and lipids in the body involving the hydrolysis of glycerides into glycerol and fatty acids. Fat loss can be induced intentionally by an individual through exercise or dieting. In light of an ever-growing medical field, new and advanced medical procedures have been developed to promote fat loss. There are four main contouring techniques namely; low-level laser therapy, cryolipolysis, radio frequency, and high intensity focused ultrasound. These are all non-invasive body contouring techniques quite popular in aesthetic medicine.
A lot of individuals have come up with meal plans as a countermeasure to weight gain, aimed at weight loss for reasons of physical fitness or due to health implications. Most people seek expert advice from nutritionists or fitness trainers while coming up with a comprehensive meal plan. Self-made meal plans equivocally, leave one feeling hungry and unsatisfied, and most people give up on these plans due to hunger. A comprehensive meal plan according to professionals, should reduce one’s appetite significantly, make one lose weight quickly without the hunger option and last but not least it should improve metabolic health at the same time. In designing a meal plan, one should cut down on sugars and starch, eat protein and low carb fats and vegetables as well as assemble meals with low cholesterol and low-fat content.
Self-consciousness or awareness is a key element if one is trying to lose weight. Keeping track of diet and exercises work out programs as well as strict adherence to meal plans all help in weight loss. Doing the opposite can result in a stagnated state where one does not lose weight. Continued intake of high-fat foods, as well as high carbohydrate food content, can lead to a stationary phase where there is no significant shift in weight. Similarly, sporadic exercises and work out sessions may lead to insignificant weight changes as the body has enough time to recover and restore burnt fat.
For beginners who want to indulge fat burning phases, a combination of cardiovascular exercise and weight training are a good way to start. Increase the intensity, duration and weight that you’re working with as your abilities improve. Continually challenging yourself more physically is one strategy in the gym to keep your healthy weight loss moving steadily forward. With increased physical fitness, advanced exercise strategies such as high intensity interval training can be incorporated.
