How to loose weight !

What is overweight?
Doctors use BMI to assess weight.
A BMI of 18.5-25 is healthy.
If you have a BMI of more than 25 you are overweight.
Over 30 is obese.
Over 40 is morbidly obese.
To calculate your BMI, you'll need to know your weight in kilos and your height in metres, then follow the example below.
1. Multiply your height by itself, eg 1.7x1.7= 2.89.
2. Divide your weight (eg 80kg) by this figure.
3. 80 ÷ 2.89= 27.7.
27.7 is the BMI.

Weight gain or Obesity is a medical condition when body weight as well as fat content of body increased beyond a permissible limits. It is estimated that roughly 20-30 % population is obese or over weight (WHO 2007). This means obesity is a major health problem across the world which is treatable as well as preventable.
Obesity is responsible for emergence of several diseases in epidemic level as higher fat content predisposes the person to many serious problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, arthritis etc
A person becomes overweight or obese because of one or more following reasons:
External Reasons
1. Sedentary Life style such as sitting job, lack of exercise etc
2. Food choice such as taking food rich in fats, carbohydrates etc
3. Medical Problems such as Low Thyroid activity, Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease, Menopause, Depression etc

Internal reasons

1. Heredity and Genes.
2. Reduction of Basal Metabolic Rate.

The first and foremost thing is to find out why you have gained weight. Is it because of over eating or lack of exercise? Most people will fall into these two categories but there are number of them who are not able to loose weight despite eating right or exercising.
The other major reasons for obesity are lowering thyroid activity (Hypothyroidism) or hormonal disturbances such as in poly cystic ovarian disease (PCOD). Simple hormonal testing (T3/T4 and TSH) as well as ultrasound of abdomen will rule out these conditions.
After ruling out medical conditions one major factor which is over looked is lowering down of basal metabolic rate of body, genes and metabolic reactions. Though lot of research is being done yet conclusive answers are yet to be found.

Once you have identified a exact cause of weight gain, them attack the problem. The first step is to identify how many calories you require on daily basis. Lets say you are working in an office with most of the time sitting and working on computers in that case your calorie requirement based upon your gender, age, weight and height may be computed with scientific formula (Click here).
After finding out your calorie requirement the next step to is to modify your daily routine so that you are including activities which makes you burn more energy: such as walking, jogging, taking stairs instead of lift, stretching during the breaks. The next step is to eat right in most of the situations. These changes happens over a period of time:

Energy needs and weight loss

Your body uses food for energy. It stores any excess energy as fat. This means if you eat more food than your body needs for daily activities and cell maintenance, you will gain weight.

Since in most cases weight gain has happened over years or months of over eating or lack of exercise therefore trying to loose weight very fast may leave you frustrating. This is because your skin, bones, your organs and whole body is used to particular architecture. Now you can’t change them all over night. Therefore first thing you need to understand is there is nothing called Instant weight loss.
Therefore crash diets or sudden exercising is bad. For example, you cannot run miles a day if you are not used to it. It is advisable to consult doctor before undertaking any exercise program. Similarly you can’t starve your self to loose weight which will make you deficient in essential vitamins and minerals.

Small changes can make a big difference. One extra biscuit a week can lead you to gain 5lb a year – cut that biscuit out of your diet and you'll lose the same amount.

You are also more likely to stick to, say, swapping full-fat milk for semi-skimmed or making time for breakfast each morning than a diet that sets rules for all foods.

Increase your activity levels

Someone who increases the amount they exercise, but maintains the same diet and calorie intake, will almost certainly lose weight.

No matter if you hate gyms - even light exercise such as a short 20 minute walk will be beneficial if done most days of the week.

Every single time you exercise more than usual, you burn calories and fat.

There are lots of ways to increase the amount of activity you do. Team sports, racket sports, aerobics classes, running, walking, swimming and cycling will all improve your fitness levels.

Find something you enjoy that's easy for you to do in terms of location and cost. You are then more likely to build it into your routine and continue to exercise, despite inevitably missing the odd session through holidays, family commitments, etc.
• Don’t jump to your car or bike every time you have to go for shopping. Park far and walk towards your destination. Try to incorporate longer walks into outings to the park, coast or countryside and take a picnic so you are in control of what you are going to eat that day.
• Every extra step you take helps. Always use the stairs instead of the lift, or get off the bus a stop before the usual one and walk the rest of the way.
• Use commercial breaks between TV-programmes to stand up and do exercise, or consider using an exercise bicycle in the living room while watching your favourite programme.
First thing you have realize that you can't continue with your current eating habits.

Then people comes to us and ask are they going to stop eating all those tasty stuff such as cakes, sweets etc available in market. The key is moderation and satisfy your tongue and not your stomach. Eat tasty and tempting cake for taste but do not satisfy your hunger with them. Eat them on special occasions. In terms of weight-loss, you can get your body to use up existing stores of fat by eating less and making healthier choices.

This doesn't mean crash diet (anything less than 1500 calories), which usually ends up with you either getting weaker or giving up in desperation. Quick-fix diets can lead to a yo-yoing effect of drastic weight loss followed by weight gain, resulting in a vicious cycle.

There are no shortcuts to losing weight in a healthy and reasonable way.

Eating 300 to 500 calories less per day should lead to a loss of between one and two pounds per week. This is a realistic target.
Fat contains the most amounts of calories out of all the food types (protein and Carbohydrates), so a good way to achieve this is to cut down on fatty foods and eat more wholegrain bread, fruit and vegetables.

Below are ways to reduce calorie intake without having to alter your diet significantly.
• Replace coke or soft drinks with water or lemon water.
• Take semi-skimmed or skimmed milk instead of full fat.
• Eat a plate of salad before lunch. Eat less lunch than usual. For example, make your own sandwich and limit the use of margarine/butter and full-fat mayonnaise (store-bought sandwiches often contain both).
• Eat frequently. It was found during our study that people did not loose weight even if they starved or ate once a day. The reason was body adapted to new lowered metabolism. Have smaller portions of the food you enjoy.
Don't be tempted to skip breakfast – or any meal to lose weight. While skipping a meal will reduce your calorie intake for that hour, it will leave you much hungrier later on.

Not only are you likely to overeat to compensate, but you'll often make bad choices to fill the gap: a cereal bar is not as healthy as a bowl of cereal or as filling, leading you to 'need' something extra for lunch.

Irregular eating habits also disrupt your body's metabolism, which makes it harder to lose weight in the first place.

• Cut out unhealthy treats such as confectionary, sugary biscuits and crisps between meals. Eat fruits or salad whenever feeling hungry.
• Cut down on beer and alcohol since they contain lots of calories.
All these things will influence your health in a positive way.

Food diary
If you're not sure what's wrong with your diet, try keeping a daily diary of everything you eat and drink.
You can use a notebook or an online diary in our weight loss manager.
At the end of the week, review your entries for problem areas.
Look out for processed foods, alcohol, fast food, roasts, creamy sauces and fried foods.
If your diet seems largely healthy, look at portion sizes.
If you're not sure what's meant by 'healthy diet', call our dietician

Once you've decided on what changes you're going to make use our free online weight loss manager to make you started, write them down. For example:
Week 1
• Exercise: one 20-40 minute walk.
• Alcohol: none in the week, two small glasses of wine on Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
• Food: no chocolate or biscuits in the week, choose healthy snacks such as fruit, trim all fat from meat, eat no fried or fast food.

Once you start your plan, weigh yourself once a week before breakfast. Keep a record of this weight and see if a pattern develops.

You could use a table like the one below to keep track of your goals, marking your progress for each day with a tick or a cross or use our online software to keep you updated about your progress

Results will definitely appear but It might take a week or two before you notice any changes. After the first month you will be able to see the results and measure them in terms of looser fitting clothes.


Keeping your motivation up is one of the most difficult aspects of dieting. There will be days when healthy eating goes out the window and there will be weeks where you may not lose any weight – or put a little back on.

Plateaus Phase
This is the most difficult phase for weight loosing people. You loose some weight and it stuck at given level. You try hard, change diet plan, exercise but it comes back. You are wondering why is it so ? Is some thing wrong with your body ? There is nothing wrong …….in this phase body organs are resizing and adapting to new architecture result of fat loss. This phase should be over in 1-2 weeks’ time.

This is normal for everyone – dieters or not – so don't let it undo your plans for a slimmer you. You're not doing anything 'wrong', but you may need to look at your plan. Do you need to increase your activity levels? Make a few more changes to your diet? Put more effort into sticking to your current plan?

When all these measure fails you require our expert help (we call them shake up the system) where we can help you to loose weight through our simple to follow programs so that you don’t hang around the plateau phase for longer than required.11

The other side of this is to make sure you celebrate your goals. While there is joy enough in stepping on the scales and seeing them dip lower, be sure to mark long-term progress with a reward such as new clothes or a night off from housework.

Celebrating is also a way to involve your nearest and dearest – it's up to you whether you want their encouragement in the form of gentle reminders not to eat certain foods, but support from other people can get you through the bumpy patches.

Health benefits of weight loss

Studies show that overweight women who lose between 10lb and 20lb halve their risk of developing diabetes. For men, the risk of heart problems reduces considerably. We have seen people reducing their hypertension medicine
dose. We have also seen arthritis pain going away and remodeling of knee joints. All these miracles are part of our weight loss programs seen at our centers.

Generally, we gain weight as we age. A few pounds over the years are not a problem, but people who gain more than 20lb compared to their weight as an 18-year-old will rapidly increase their risk of health problems due to that extra weight. In particular, women increase their risk of heart attack and double their risk of dying from cancer.

It may seem like these are problems to worry about in the future, but time flies by and tomorrow becomes today. By keeping your weight in the healthy range, you are less likely to be troubled by illnesses in your later years.
