Weight loss and Dieting Plan
Many of us like to ask some general questions about their weight and dieting plan.As I know , In the middle ages a fat lady was supposed to be the symbol of fertile mother earth and thus was considered beautiful. But now circumstances have been changed like, a women who walked with the heavy step of an elephant and solid busts considered less attractive and the idea to be as thin as a bamboo pole with solid busts came to be more attractive. Many have suggestions that this concept arises after world war I and II, due to the scarcity of food, it became fashionable to look slim and trim.Some good suggestions for weight reduction are do not eat between meals( For this you can take help of diet pills like Phentermine etc.), espicially not all those chips munched before the TV.
It can badly affect your appetite and can ruin your skin too.Fried things, not vegetables like potatoes,pastries and cakes are definitely no no!! Eat slowly and chew thoroughly. If you can't resist yourself between meal snacking then you can satisfy your hunger with salads and fruit. I heard from one of my friend that he lost 4Kg in a month with the Israeli army diet. First 2 days only apples, the next two days only cheese and the last 2 daysonly boiled chicken.
No tea or cofee or any other liquids, except water or fresh juice. But if your grand parents and parents are fat, how do you expect to looklike Naomi Campbell?Sometimes thyroid gland secretions alos cause extreme obesity or extreme thinness.But if you maintain your diet taking some appetite suppressants, you can reduce your weight. A normal person need about 2000 calories per day and if you reduce to 1000 calories, you will lose weight. Calories are in butter, cheese, pastries, cakes,puddings,sweets,soups, sauces, cocoa chocolate, dried beans and dried fruit.Less calories are found in spinach, fresh fruit and salad. green leafy vegetables have less calories. Some people say that exercising like cycling can make fat legs slim and trim. But according to me exercise makes matters worse. Avoid cycling which is a muscle-developing exercise.
Even swimming and dancing aggravates matters. Exercise is under 2 headings: reducing and developing. People used to think if you drink plenty of water, you would become slim, but sometimes it does exactly the opposite. You retain water and that makes up fat. Many people wants to firm up their stomach. For this you have to learn to brace it in and up, and you should not let it sag, like as if you are dropping it into a bag at the bottom of the tummy?The style of walking with the tummy-in behind-in by models is an exercise in itself. Do not walk with shoulders hunched.The tummy should be up and in , and the hips slightly forward. Also while walking, take a deep breath and pull your tummy muscle in. Exhale slowly, but do not let your tummy out.
This will will remind you sagging all over the place! Sometime I stand before the bathroom mirror while I am washing my face or anything else, and I can see the pull in tummy exercise playing on the abdominal-muscles. Learn to do it automatically.But it is tiring to lift up your tummy like that because you are not used to using those muscles, but when it becomes second nature, it becomes easier. There are several exercises for the tummy. Lie flat, breathing deeply in and out. Divide each breath into 3 little jerks, pulling your tummy in at each little jerk. Let your breath out without buging the tummy. Do this in the few groups of 6, with a good rest in between.Lie down flat, hook your feet under a piece of furniture and put your hands under the head. Then try to rise to a sitting position without lifting the feet from the floor.
Lie down flat keeping the knees straight and the toes pointing forwards. Move your feet so that the toes pointing up and, at the same time lift up the head to look. Then relax. Repeat the exercise 7 times. Some exercise about the ever expanding hips. Crouch with arms hunched about knees, as if you are getting ready to run a marathon. Then sway your body to and fro, backwards and forwards with emphasis on the leg muscles. You can also lie face down on the floor,, with the chin resting on the back of your hands. Then slowly lift your head up from the ground, which is quite difficult because at the same time you are trying to lift up your legs, one at a time also! Do this very slowly.
