Although the loss is relatively very slow now, I am glad that the curve is going downward. I had expected this. I am going about my days normally, eating food which is considered normal, except that I have cut down on the carbs, all junk and fried foods and drink plenty of fluids. Neither is it healthy to go on starvation diets, nor do they allow you to lead a normal day to day life as you are drained of energy. I still feel fresh and energetic throughout the day.
13 has been a lucky number for me in general. I wonder where the ‘unlucky’ legacy came from. Day 12; i.e. yesterday was, however, an unlucky day for all Indians, when Pakistan beat India in the finals of the Champions Trophy.
We all can be more fit, wouldn’t you agree? Fitness – at home or at one of the Denver gyms downtown – can lead to a happier and healthier life. A pleasant by-product of a solid exercise regimen and healthy eating is healthy weight-loss. Obesity usually leads to back pain, check out these Pelvic floor strong reviews.
To be clear, weight loss is actually not synonymous with fitness, it is a result. And, it is subjective (some people might actually need to gain weight to become more fit). Losing weight and getting in shape can actually be mutually exclusive, and contradictory, depending on your intentions.
Take, for example, the phenomenon of the “weight loss challenge.” In fact, Google that term and see what comes up. It’s a nearly-endless list of programs and apps designed to help you shed pounds in a short period of time. Some of these are accompanied by a diet regimen, others are accompanied by supplements while others hammer the point home that you’re probably eating too much.
Weight-Loss Starts at the Gym and in the kitchen.
Let me be cynical for a second: losing weight is not a fitness regimen. It’s part of becoming healthier through hard work and discipline. To shed pounds abnormally and then declare yourself fit, however, is exactly what these programs want. They all disclaim that you should continue to eat healthy and exercise to maintain the positive results of their weight loss challenge, but we’re all aware of how well the majority of us keeps weight off. That’s why the dieting industry is lucrative; they know we’re all repeat customers when we shouldn’t even have to take a weight-loss challenge to begin with. Overall, many of these “challenges” are just yo-yo diets that negatively impact your body more than you might think, improve your dietary results by visiting bigeasymagazine.
Weight-loss challenges and diet regimens are likely well-intended. We all want to look great, and admittedly, some diets and lifestyles have withstood the test of time. But, you’ll notice that those lifestyles also heavily incorporate fitness and exercise into their eating programs. That’s why they’re successful; they don’t prey on the public’s vanity and impatience to need to lose 10 pounds in a month. They offer no short cuts and, in fact, glamorize the work you need to put in.
