Obesity is the widespread accretion of excessive fat in the body. Overweight refers to being ten percent above the expected body weight, given the height and build. Obese refers to being twenty percent over the desired target. The medical definition of being overweight is having a body mass index or BMI between 25 and 29.9. If the BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9, you are within the normal or ideal weight range. But if your BMI is higher than 29.9 you are considered to be obese. To calculate your BMI, simply multiply your weight in pounds by 704.5, divide the result by your height in inches, then again divide that result by your height in inches a second time.
Obesity is known to be a precursor to various forms of disease, particularly cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Usually interventions such as effective weight loss and medication are prescribed to diminish the risk of developing disease. Effective weight loss is the process of intentionally making and accomplishing a plan to reduce total body weight. This typically involves the lessening of total body fat. Ideally, you should go on a strict diet, by consuming nutritionally balanced low-calorie foods and increasing physical activity.
Over sixty-five percent of American adults are overweight or obese today. That means close to 100 million adults in the United States are ineffective at managing their weight. Obesity is also the cause of death of more than 375,000 U.S. adults each year. People who are obese or overweight are more likely to develop heart disease, strokes, hypertension, diabetes, and certain cancers, which are the leading causes of death.
Effective weight loss is a premeditated, calculated attempt to lose body weight. Even though there are several effective weight loss programs, the only proven – long-standing and harmless technique is to burn more calories than are ingested. Effective weight loss can be achieved either by decreasing the caloric intake by eating less or healthier food and by increasing the energy outflow by doing more physical exercises like aerobics, brisk walking, swimming and bicycling.
One pound of fat contains around 3500 calories – so to lose one pound a week a person should consume approximately 3500 lesser calories per week. This can be easily achieved by reducing the daily intake by 500 calories per day, thereby providing the deficit of 3500 calories in a week. Thus, by regularly following this effective weight loss method, you can lose one pound a week!
Beauty lies in Simplicity. The key to weight management and effective weight loss is to simply increase your daily activity. Small things like taking the stairs or brisk walking rather than driving, make a real difference in effective weight loss. A slow but effective weight loss of one or two pounds a week; will eventually attain the preferred body weight.
