What are the worst weight loss programs that became mainstream?
Weight loss programs you can try - Fasting Free Programs
I have attempted weight loss and got success around 3 times in the past 5 years. At first I was able to reduce 3 kgs in 5 months and then in the second attempt I was able to reduce 5 kgs in 7 months and then in the third attempt this year, I was able to reduce 8 kgs in 9 months and all this was done due following a regular workout program and taking my diet on proper timings.
According to me, the worst weight loss program that became mainstream is the program that only follows fasting and diet, and exercise is not included at all. I am not able to understand why people used to fast a lot to be able to lose weight whereas fasting is dangerous and not a way to lose weight. Fasting on a very frequent basis is totally unhealthy according to me.
You must know about the dangers of fasting because you are depriving your body of essential nutrients it requires to perform normal function. Moreover, the days when you will not be able to fast, you will eat much more again overburdening your body with food that it is not able to digest and your body will keep on storing that food at a side making your overweight again, so this is the side effect of fasting.
The most appropriate type of weight loss program should include an exercise routine with taking food on right time. Most people are overweight or obese not just because they eat so much but because they do not eat at proper timings and do not do any exercise. If you have heard about circadian rhythm, which I have explained about in one of my previous articles, then it is better for you. If do not know about this, then I will tell you in brief and in simple words. Our body performs all the functions according to a clock that means our body has its own clock, so when this clock gets malfunctioned, all the functions of the body suffer. It is not that there is a specific time set of circadian rhythm or our body clock but you can set your body clock on your own. For example if you eat your lunch at 1 p.m., then do it on a routine basis everyday and you will never have a problem. Rather you will start feeling much more energetic and healthy than before just because our body clock has a direct relation with our metabolism and keeping our clock functioning well helps in maintaining and boosting the metabolism of our body.
Now, try feeding your body on right time and maintain
that time period and you will be able to maintain weight. Just include an
exercise routine in your daily schedule with proper food timings and you will
be able to reduce weight. For a person looking out for losing weight, I would
recommend that he/she join a gym and if not possible do at least one hour of
exercise daily including running or jogging, yoga, pushups, cardio, etc.
followed by a balanced diet rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and other
nutrients to keep you healthy. Least but not last, I am of the opinion that
worst weight loss programs are the ones that include fasting or all the
emphasis on diet and no exercise. They are fake, scams, and making a fool of
other people. A person trying to lose weight must understand this and do not
get in trouble, as it will harm your body and do nothing else. If there is no
pain there is no gain and same is the case in weight loss, do exercise on a routine
basis followed by balanced diet on fixed intervals and you will be able to get
a hold on your metabolism and lose weight. If you are happy with your body
image and just want to maintain weight, yoga is the best option for you. Also read How s*x helps in weight loss?
