Weight loss and obesity

An article a friend sent me through email and would like to share it with you.

Weight Loss And Obesity

Eating at night causes weight gain


One more silly myth that many people believe is that eating at night causes weight gain. So, they skip the dinner at night and thus get weak. The diet at night is equally important like the afternoon lunch. This completes the meal cycle and provides your body the essential nutrients to perform body functions. So, don’t think that skipping the night meals will show you good results. The first thing one should remember that eating more whether during day or night with promote excessive weight gain. So, eat the balanced diet whether at day or at night. This will help you to overcome excessive weight gain.

It is hard to lose weight as excessive weight gain is hereditary


This is absolutely wrong. With sheer determination and hard work you can lose weight easily and even in a short span of time. Research studies have surely shown that biological child tend to have similar body weight like its parents. Yes, those with family history of obese or fat ancestors have double chances of suffering with obesity or fatness. But, that doesn’t mean that exercise and healthy diet can not promote weight loss in you. The most important factor is how much calories you eat and how much you activity you do to burn them. So, don’t blame your genes for this. You can even find child with a fat parents and fat child to thin parents. Thus, excessive weight gain is not entirely dependent on genes, but also on the environment in which person survives.

breakfast promotes weight loss


This is the most prevalent myth that many people follow to promote weight loss. But, sorry to say, it isn’t true. By skipping the lunch or breakfast, you will not promote the weight loss, whereas you will make yourself ill. The stamina and health of the person will completely deteriorate by skipping lunch or breakfast. The important thing is you need to lose weight, but not by falling yourself ill or by making your body functions perform abruptly. You need to control the diet, but not skip it. Control your calorie intake, avoid eating fatty foods, and cut down the intake of carbohydrates. This way you can lose weight without damaging your health.
