Weight Loss

Weight loss, in the context of medicine, health, or physical fitness, refers to a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue and/or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon, and other connective tissue. Weight loss can either occur unintentionally due to malnourishment or an underlying disease or arise from a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight or obese state. “Unexplained” weight loss that is not caused by reduction in calorific intake or exercise is called cachexia and may be a symptom of a serious medical condition. Intentional weight loss is commonly referred to as slimming.

Weight Gain

1. Don’t let more than four hours go by without eating. Your body needs a continuous supply of energy since it’s like an engine that’s always turned on (your heart is always beating, blood is circulating, your brain and muscles are working).

2. Eat several foods at once. Always aim for at least three food groups. Instead of just a banana or handful of nuts, top a few slices of whole grain toast with almond butter and banana slices, along with a glass of organic skim milk or a milk substitute (soy, hemp, etc.).

3. Eat healthy, but dense foods. The best way to rack up extra nutrition without having to eat huge quantities of food or resort to junk is to choose nutrient-rich foods that pack a lot of carbohydrates, protein or fat into a small serving.

Inch Loss

Losing overall body fat is a well understood process and can be implemented by most of us. But reducing weight (losing fat) from specific parts of the body needs a more tailor-made specific regime. Weight training along with aerobic activity is an effective way to reduce inches and tone the body. For example, a person looking to reduce weight from the thighs and hips would have to go in for repetitive sets of lunges and squats. And a person looking to reduce weight from the arms would do more of overhead pulley, seated rowing, biceps.
