Most of us carry a little too much abdominal fat. However, it is possible to shed the excess weight.

First, we must recognize that we cannot change anything unless it is done consciously. You can’t expect to see a difference if you keep eating the same food and doing the same things.

Understanding Fat Loss

  • Obesity or being overweight is a risk factor of chronic health conditions like diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

  • To lose weight you need to create a caloric surplus. This means reducing your intake of calories and increasing the amount that you burn through physical activity and exercise.
  • Moderation is difficult to maintain. Once you start eating, it’s difficult to stop. And if you leave the table hungry, you will likely snack.
  • Overeating is easy with some foods. Some foods are easy to overeat.
  • Fruits and vegetables are lower in energy density. Filling your stomach up with nutritious foods will make you feel satisfied without eating excess calories.
  • Alcoholic drinks can lead to poor decisions, such as eating unhealthy and high-calorie snacks.
  • You don’t burn fat until after a few hours of not eating. Before it begins to break down stored fat, your metabolism uses carbs and sugars as fuel. Eat more frequently to burn fat.

Weight Loss: The Mental, Emotional and Social Games

Weight loss is a simple process – you just need to create a deficit in calories. It is difficult to change your emotional and social relationship with food.

  • Stress and anxiety can lead to people overeating and eating unhealthy food. Reduce your stress and learn healthier ways to cope.
  • Many people don’t realize that they are overeating. Be more aware of when, what and why you eat. You can do this by calorie counting, keeping a food journal, doing introspection and meditation.
  • Changes in your body shape will affect the way you interact with others. Eating can be a social activity, so you may feel uncomfortable if you don’t eat certain foods around family or friends. You will be perceived differently by others, and they will also begin to see you differently.
