Benefits of slow weight loss: How to lose weight slowly and maintain it for life?
One out of every 5 persons I see walking down the road is fat, some have fat around belly and some have completely bulky fat body. When you will ask them “why are you so healthy”? (as using the word “fat” sometimes sounds insulting to them so you need to be cautious), some of them will say smiling, “Are you are talking about me being fat?” Oh, I have tried taking every type of fat burner available in the market and I walk on a regular basis (from home to neighbor’s home nearby, funny) and I have been on a weight loss diet but nothing at all helps. Now, please tell me why this happens? No problem, I will tell you. This happens just because these people do not know actually how to lose weight in the first place.
Interestingly, the first and most important advice for achieving weight loss is to start believing in yourself, start developing will power and confidence that you will definitely lose weight, no matter whatever happens.
Undoubtedly, most people who fail to lose weight are people who are looking out for fast weight loss techniques or magical pills to burn fat. But the true fact is that losing weight takes time. Slowly and steadily you will win the race of weight loss. First believe in yourself, learn the benefits of losing weight slowly and then maintain lost weight for life.
Secondly, you need to kick off the big misconception from your mind and that is “Good Fat Burners Involve Meager Physical Activity And Awesome Calorie Burning Capacities” but my friend something that sounds too good has to be untrue, and with fat burners, you need to engage in good physical activity for long stretches of time to lose weight. Weight loss doesn’t happen in a flash. Training the body to undergo vigorous physical activity for a long duration not only warrants will power and mind training, but also requires many days, months, or years of time. After all, you need to lose and maintain weight loss. Aren’t you?
Jogging to my mind has its own benefits for achieving the desired goals of weight loss. After jogging for four years without huge breaks, I find my body in perfect shape though not great weight loss, as I never was an overweight person in the first place. But there must have been a tremendous inch loss which gives me a look of having lost weight by say 8 to 10 kgs.
Excess eating once in a while makes no dent to my stomach which has turned flat for the last two years. Here lies the catch. For the beneficial effects of vigorous exercises to show on my body, it took more than two years. Before that it was a frustrating, long and seemingly lost battle. Once you survive the initial setback by way of very slow movement towards weight loss goal despite sticking to the routine for a long time, you are in for surprising and spectacular weight loss benefits.
For slow but consistent weight loss, you need to jog non-stop 40 to 45 minutes five to six times a week and sometimes without breaks for 20 days at a stretch. This also has some unintended benefits for those who are looking at it to be just a fat burner thing. Such extensive labor will improve your blood circulation, induce sleep during sleeping hours and not during work hours keeping you alert and active in the office. This will also keep blood pressure under control, heart active, and body toned. Also, you will get properly functioning sex organs, which is another benefit. Obesity-related diseases like diabetes and others may have a low probability of striking your door. But an important thing to remember here is your diet should not increase as much as your non-sedentary activity. Without including workout routines in your weight loss program, you will never ever be able to reap the ultimate benefits of weight loss.
So my dear friend, weight loss is achieved slowly and gradually and when the time comes that you are satisfied with your weight loss, start thinking about maintaining it by following all the methods you had done in the first place. Weight loss maintenance is important so you don’t build up fat again, as most people do after achieving their desired goals with losing weight fast techniques.
