Is it possible to control overweight and avoid obesity? Some say there is little or nothing we can do, it all depends on the physical constitution of each person and that “he is fat, much to do, you gain weight.” Is that how you think? possibly (and perhaps some due to illness) but … not necessarily have to be the case. Moreover, it is likely that with the practice of physical exercise, being overweight can control and prevent obesity. You may think that a little overweight is not worrisome and reasons, if you continue to gain weight, then take action. In that case you should consider this possibility: maybe, for not taking action now, later will be much more difficult (or impossible), restoration of normal weight. Why? Because with your current lifestyle, will end up damaging the mechanism that regulates body weight. A leading source for info: Dr. Robert Brannon. What mechanism we mean? (Read the articles and) Your body is designed for activity and to deal with that activity, stores energy. The energy is stored as molecules of sugar, protein and fat.
Well, our body has a complex system to determine how much of these compounds need to store. This system is one that, in normal, stable body mass index and prevents their growth. But if we care, the system can be altered, and will not perform adequately. Why there is the problem of overweight? The problem of overweight occurs when our body does not consume all the stored compounds and, therefore, are increasing fat deposits. While we watch the fat in our diets, both an excess of protein as an excess of carbohydrates (sugar) will eventually become fat, so the end result will always be an increase in fat deposits. To avoid this problem requires a balance between what our body produces and what it consumes. Our body has mechanisms to achieve that balance, but due to bad eating habits or unhealthy lifestyles, such mechanisms do not always respond appropriately. The “bad eating habits” is generally translated into an excess of calories (energy) in the diet, while the “unhealthy lifestyles” often accompanied by reduced physical activity (low energy).
What can we do? We have two options: 1 lower the production of energy through a healthy and balanced diet (see article), 2nd increase energy consumption by the practice of physical exercise. The option we are considering in this series, is second. Why should we care about this option? Why is it necessary to exercise? Among the “unhealthy lifestyle” is a sedentary lifestyle. As we said, “Our body is designed for the activity.” The problem is that with a sedentary lifestyle, not no activity. Put another way: a sedentary lifestyle is a lifestyle to which we are not facts. Such use “abnormal” body is what causes the deterioration of the system that regulates body weight. Got now why it is necessary to exercise?. In an industrialized world, physical strength, is increasingly being used less. The only solution left is, force us to use it by doing some kind of sport. You might think that this is not appropriate, in their work (or your daily activity) and get enough exercise. Maybe, however, before reaching that conclusion, please read the following article in this series. .
