Are You Trying To Lose Fat Or Lose Weight

Aug 30, 2008
It is very true that you will need to lose fat when you are trying to losing weight. However, it has to be stressed that weight loss is not identical to fat loss. They are a bit different in nature. When you are trying to lose weight, you are trying to lose fat and at the same time trying to become healthier.

Let us talk about fat a little bit. You will need energy in order to have your body function properly. Your daily life will in fact be affected if you do not get enough energy. We get the energy from the food we eat. Calorie is the measure of energy intake. If you can use up all the energy intake, you will not get fat. However, if you cannot use all the energy you get from the food you eat, the excess calories will probably be stored in your body as fat. And your weight will increase in this case.

You may have heard of a lot of rapid weight loss programs out there. There are programs which even claim to be able to help you to lose something like 20 pounds in a week. As a matter of fact, it just sounds to good to be true. It is in fact very difficult for on to lose 20 pounds in a week! Even if you can really lose weight, you are lose the water within your body and your weight will probably gain again when you drink some water. Do you think that you can live without water? No! You cannot. As a result, you cannot really lose weight by losing water. And it is not healthy to do at the end of the day. Instead you will need to lose the excessive fat within your body in order to lose weight effectively.

As a result, you should be very careful of what you eat. There are dieting plans which will teach you to starve yourself. This is not a good way to lose weight either. Do you think that you can be under the status of starvation for your whole life? If you think you cannot, then you should not try a diet which teach you to starve yourself. You will need the energy for metabolism. Metabolism can certainly help you to lose fat. As a result, what you should do is keep an eye on the calorie intake and make sure that the energy you get will be enough for your daily activities, as well as metabolism.
