The most common advice people get to avoid obesity is to eat less. But, this is completely a myth as per experts. Obesity is generally the result of unhealthy lifestyle changes. If you are interested in understanding how to manage obesity without going through the tough diet schedules, there are two ‘E’s you can follow to achieve your goal of preventing yourself from getting into the stage of obesity from the present ‘overweight’ stage. As you know, obesity does not come all of a sudden and most of the people reach this stage only after attaining the ‘over weight’ stage. This pre-obesity stage is the warning sign that people should take some quick actions to protect themselves from becoming obese. The two ‘E’ Mantra is to ‘exercise’ and ‘eat right’. Here is an explanation of two ‘Es’:
Exercise can provide an excellent help for overweight people. First and foremost thing, it can do is to help people in burning more calories. Second benefit associated with exercise is that it helps in removing unwanted toxins from the body in the form of sweat. Exercise can also play an important role towards releasing pleasure hormones that will help people to keep up their spirits. Some of the exercises that can help in this regard are:
• Jogging and walking
• Playing sports like swimming, cycling and tennis
• Breathing exercise
Heading a brisk walk in the morning will be highly helpful. In addition to improvement of the movement of different sections of the body, it will also help in breathing fresh air in the morning and it is also the best exercise for people suffering with diabetes that has contributed towards excess weight.
When it comes to eating right, here are some foods that can make the right choice to fight against obesity:
Say ‘no’ to junk foods:
The next time you plan to eat out, you should consciously stay away from sugary soft drinks, burgers, extra cheese and fries. Even though, these foods can satiate your taste buds, they can add up unwanted calories to your weight.
Do not skip breakfast:
Many overweight people are of the opinion that they can cut on the calories when they skip breakfast. But, reports state that men and women, who never skip their breakfast, weigh considerably less as compared to those who do not. When it comes to breakfast, cereals can be the ideal choice and also as against having 3-4 full meals per day, it is better to break them into 5-6 small servings. This habit will keep you away from starving and overeating calories.
Limit alcohol intake:
When it comes to eating right, you should be careful about keeping away from alcohol. You might have heard the term ‘beer belly’. Yes, alcoholic drinks can increase your belly size and they can do nothing good for your health. In addition to bringing ill effects to your liver, these beverages can add up to your weight as well. So keep away.
As the final word, measure yourself regularly and remember not to opt for crash dieting, which will make you weak.
