Obstacles You May Face When Trying To Lose Weight

Jun 3, 2008
Losing weight can be a hard task depending on your schedule. For many people the thought of losing a few pounds sounds appealing but their busy life simply won't allow for it. Single men and women may be able to get out and go to the gym, ride their bikes or go for a walk while parents of multiple children are at home preparing dinner.

Some choose weight-loss treatments such as Acomplia over exercise to curb their appetites. Which ever method you choose whether it be exercise or medical treatments, losing weight must be researched first in order to determine which way is right for you.

We have all heard it for years all over the radio and television. Eat right and exercise and you will stay healthy and fit while maintaining a normal weight. However this is not always the case. There has been a growing amount of research published in recent years from the medical and scientific community about the role genetics play on the human body.

The same way your DNA dictates what sex you will be also may apply to your body type, including your weight. Professor Peter Weissberg from the British Heart Foundation funded a study that links obesity in people with Indian ancestry from their genes. The results show people with Indian ancestry may carry a gene that will ultimately mandate obesity. With a family background that carries these types of genes eating right and exercising may not be the right choice for them in their quest to lose weight.

That is why such anti-obesity drugs such as Reductil and Xenical are seeing a huge increase in sales in recent times. Rapid scientific information is changing what we know about obesity and weight loss in a very profound way that no one could have imagined. Some even predict that one day in the near to distant future we may be able to choose our own ideal body weights. In the meantime we can look at other weight loss techniques with a proven track record.

There are six categories of nutrients that everyone living needs to keep their bodies functioning properly. They are fat, fibers, protein, carbohydrates, water, vitamins and minerals. What you take in will effect how you loss weight. Setting up a well thought out food plan and sticking to it is an essential part. Remember, it's not necessarily about how much you eat but what you are eating.

If I ate 50 pounds of raw vegetables and 50 pounds of sugar per week, which one do you think would aid me in weight loss? Of course the raw vegetables would simply because they are a rich source of enzymes that help digest fat. Sugar on the other hand will be stored in the body once you reach the limit on what your body needs. You must be aware of the roles certain foods play before you sit down and eat.

Don't think that you just need to eat less during your meals and you will magically see the pounds drop down. Eating less food that is high in protein can be dangerous. You may want to consult a medical doctor if you plan on dieting or do your own research. Talk to friends and co-workers to find out how they were able to lose weight.
