Weight Loss

Your optimum weight takes into account your height, age, gender and build. Body weight is determined by the calories we take in through our diet and the amount of calories we burn during our daily activities, such as exercise and work. If your calorie intake is greater than the amount of calories you burn through energy, then you may gain weight. 

If you have a high body mass index (BMI) then you may be overweight. If you have a muscular build with a high BMI, you may not be considered to have any health risks. 

You can begin to notice weight gain when your clothes start to become tight around the waist and for many individuals, weight gain can affect them psychologically.

What are the causes of Weight Loss

Being overweight can be due to hereditary factors and/or lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise. Altering lifestyle factors can help you to lose weight, but sometimes it may be necessary, as advised by your GP, to take medication to aid weight loss. However, our genetic makeup determines our resting metabolic rate (RMR) which can be lower or higher than average, resulting in weight gain or weight loss. 

Stress can also cause people to resort to eating indulgent foods, high in sugar and fat. The problem is weight gain which then further increases more anxiety and depression because of their appearance and how they look.

Treating Weight Loss

Treatments for weight loss include Alli (Orlistat) and Orlistat.

Going hungry is not the healthy solution to weight loss and you must continue to eat a well balanced nutritious diet. Never starve yourself of a meal. Skipping meals can make you to overeat the wrong food choices. 

Setting small goals to reduce your sugar intake is better than giving up all in one go. Slowly wean yourself off the high-fat and high-sugar content foods.
