Losing a few pounds make every one of us looks good and feels amazing. But those are not the only benefits when it comes to weight loss. Majority of the health issues faced by people can be controlled or diminished by shedding the extra pounds.
Obesity is one of the major ailments faced by urban residents due to the easy availability of fast food that provides almost no nutrients. It paves way to alarming illnesses like heart diseases, high blood pressure, high risk of stroke, reproductive problems, and type 2 Diabetes and so on. There are higher possibilities in having gall bladder stones as well. An increasing number of children in USA as well as other parts of the world are seen to be diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. Arthritis is another such illness that can be prevented with a little control over one’s weight.
Poor body image is another serious psychological trauma faced by the younger generation. It leads to low self esteem, lack of confidence and inhibitions while interacting with peers. It may also lead to serious psychological illnesses like depression, anorexia nervosa and bulimia. One can stay away from running the risk of such serious physical and psychological illnesses with a little determination and self control.
What can you do to lose weight and reshape your body? Sticking on to a healthy diet free from junk food, low on carbohydrates and sodium will enable one to regain their metabolism and make exercise an integral part of one’s daily routine. We shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves from the beginning of a new lifestyle. Easy exercises must be practiced initially before moving out to hardcore workout routines.
It is also equally essential to train your mind as you train your body. Most often it is the lack of power of the mind that leads to the inability to stick on to a healthy diet and lifestyle. Health coaching or wellness coaching is a process that enables a nurturing change in the psyche of the individual which eventually reflects one’s body as well. The trainers are have a working knowledge over human psychology as they try to help their clients to move towards a goal set the clients themselves rather than forcing them into accepting one that isn’t theirs. They are merely guided into building their own inner wisdom instigating them to work towards improving themselves.
Once you have trained your mind and developed a fitness routine, it is essential to stay loyal to it. One should be able to develop a personal fitness routine that gratifies one’s metabolism and dietary manners. A personal fitness routine always has an added advantage over that which is prescribed and followed by many. Every individual is unique and requires a unique routine to maintain an efficient mind and an active and healthy body.
