Weight gain is usually the result of eating more than our body needs and not doing enough physical activity. If we take in more energy than our body burns up the excess energy is stored as fat. There is an abundance of new diets and weight loss methods, all promising a miracle cure.
A lot of these diets produce initial rapid weight loss, however not the desired long term weight control. Fast weight loss is mainly loss of water and lean muscle tissue. When you return to your normal eating patterns you will regain water and your weight will be the same as before. If you exercise, the lean tissue comes back, however if you don’t your body will be more flabby than before.
The most effective way to lose excess fat and to keep it off is to lose weight slowly by
- Changing your eating habits
- Increasing your physical activity levels
