How easy is it to lose weight?
Now I am sure you would like to know how did I lose weight? Before you read further, let me tell you one thing that you have to sacrifice on. You can not lose weight if want to continue eating sweets. Yes you have to completely give up sweets made of sugar. Though you may sometimes have desserts made of sugar substitutes. I am not going to give you some diet chart, you are supposed to make your own diet plan. I don’t have a magic wand that would shed off that extra fat, you have to make your own. My objective is to make you learn a few basics of human metabolism, the energy balance in your own body and having learnt it, you would yourselves find out the secret that you might have been looking for. Now do not get disheartened. You are going to lose weight without any workout plan and any need to starve. But you need to earn it. Earn it simply by reading and trying to learn.
Am I overweight? Do I need to lose weight?
There are several ways you can find it out. But let me tell you the simplest method. Subtract 100 from your height in cms and that’s the ideal weight you should have (Broca’s Index). If you weigh more than that it’s better that you shed off those extra kgs. If your height is 170 cms, you should ideally weigh less than 70 kgs. Great if your weight is within the target, now think about central obesity. You may well have normal weight with a tummy. That is equally bad. Again a simple test for that. Your ideal waist size should be less than half of your height (Index of Central Obesity). So if you are 5 feet 10 inches (70 inches), your waist size should be less than 35 inches.
Are you motivated to lose weight?
First thing first. How motivated are you for losing weight? I am a doctor myself and was never motivated enough to care for my weight. Repeated advisories from family, friends did not work. I went for a routine health check up and found out that my cholesterol and liver enzymes were on higher side. That was the trigger for me. In your case it might be different. May be you are highly motivated but have failed repeatedly. May be you are too young and conscious about your looks. May be you are health conscious. If not find out a solid reason for losing weight. Till the time you are not serious about it, you won’t lose weight. There are a number of ways you can read about the ill effects of obesity on your health. Try to google and read about it. Obesity causes diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, increases risk of diseases like heart attack, paralysis and if that all doesnt scare you it also causes impotence. By losing 1 kg of weight you can prolong your life by one year.
