Managing weight is not easy. It is a life-long commitment. You need to re-look at your eating and lifestyle patterns and have a realistic goal. Start by planning short-term goals and look for weight loss in increments rather than focusing on the target weight and how long it is going to take to achieve it. This will only discourage you.
Why dont fat cells disappear, already?
The truth of the matter is that over-consumption of calories promotes fat cell production. Fat cells are very influential in weight control because they are permanent. Once a fat cell is produced, it can gain or lose size but the number of fat cells never decreases. They refill readily so those who have more fat cells and lose weight generally regain weight more easily than those who have fewer fat cells.
Did you know that about 98% of people who lose weight will regain it back within a 5-year period?
Obesity cant be cured, however, it can be successfully controlled through diet and regular physical activity. Here are some recommendations to help you with weight loss and weight management.
For more information, I recommend Dr. Joey Shulmans book called The Last 15. It will show you how to change your old habits and reset your metabolic code within 30 days. It also explains further in detail why its crucial to incorporate low-glycemic index foods, lean proteins and essential fats for permanent weight loss and much more.
