The Natural Truth About Quick Weight Loss
Actually, I was reading about fad diet and suddenly I received a message in my mail "Lose 20 Pounds in 10 Days!" So I thought I should write some more on quick weight loss diet plans and how they're intended to fail miserably. I have already written a lot on such topics and I think you should read this article because they are flawed at grass root level! along with this article to learn exactly what's wrong with quick diets.
There are a few facts that I want to discuss before getting into specific details of how she lost 10 pounds in 10 days and more specifically, even after losing 20 pounds, how she has more fat. 1.Temporary weight loss will never teach to anyone how to maintain her proper weight. 2.Protein shakes are an unhealthy way to trick yourself into eating fewer calories. 3.It is unlikely that any person could lose 20 pounds of fat in 10 days. A large part of this loss is water and depleted muscle mass, not fat. Now let me explain how you get more fat (and of course unhealthy) even after losing 10 to 30 pounds with a quick fad diet.
Let's assume, for an illustration, that a normally an active person with a body composition diets of 1300 calories a day and walks 10 miles, as normal one did. With a total energy output of 2800 calories (ENERGY OUT), and a calorie intake of 1300 (ENERGY IN), woman's daily net calorie intake will be -1500 calories. In other words, she will have burnt 1500 calories more than she ate, and she will have lost 1500 calories worth of body fat in one day.
What is the Best Kind of Exercise for Weight Loss?Written by Dianne Ronnow
It is a common misconception that aerobic exercise tones/firms muscles. Actually it accomplishes very little toning/firming. Resistance exercise (weight training) is where real toning/firming of muscles occurs.
Doing both aerobics and weight training is optimal way to lose more fat and gain more muscle. If you are trying to lose weight, studies show that weight loss increases by 56 percent with aerobic and strength exercises combined. Muscle may weigh more, but when you increase your muscle composition, body is able to burn more fat, even when you are resting, because your metabolism is higher. A pound of muscle will use 350 to 500 calories per week to survive, while a pound of fat only needs about 14 calories per week. New studies have shown that building muscle helps your body fight disease better, too.
Strength training benefits everyone, no matter what age or sex, and is becoming recognized as an important component of fitness. Research is indicating that muscle loss found in elderly people doesn’t come from age, but lack of activity. Even a young person who doesn’t get enough exercise can lose muscle mass and strength. Strength training, such as lifting weights or performing weight-resistance exercises, as little as twice a week can help maintain or increase muscle mass.
Strength training involving several sets of many repetitions using moderate weights will not result in huge muscles. Instead it builds bone mass, increases metabolism and tones and firms muscles, giving a leaner look.
It is very important to do both aerobics and strength exercises. The aerobic exercises help your heart and lungs get stronger and help your body utilize oxygen more efficiently, which in turn helps with strength training and overall fitness. The strength exercise helps develop muscle, reduce body fat and maintain bone mass.
