Once again, meticulously looking in the mirror the outlines of the figure, and once again making sure that it is far from being painted in the imagination of the ideal, we once again decide: "Everything! From tomorrow I start to lose weight - I sit on a diet!"
The case for small - to find a suitable diet (preferably such a favorite star adheres to the screen or show business). This helps us helpfully numerous glossy magazines. Diets for all tastes: from Anita Tsoi, Demi Moore, Madonna, etc. The statistics say right now there are more than 28,000 diets. Diets crammed with all the literature that women read: magazines, newspapers, online publications, even female detectives and romance novels. Approximately 60-70% of women every year are starting a new diet! And some even bring it to the end.
Some of them for the year may try several different hard diets!
But, paradoxically, it is women who are fanatically try to imagine a variety of new-fangled "strict" diet, sitting for weeks on apples or yogurt, lose weight, and not having, as it should, to enjoy the triumph of the lost kilos, rapidly gaining the same weight again. Why is this happening?
There are already laws work psychology. If you give and then take away, not even very favorite thing before it becomes desirable. A favorite product from which you want to give up, the more it becomes especially coveted. This leads to the fact that often after this diet product starts absorbed in amounts far in excess to dietny level.
The result is lamentable - the weight of those who sat on a rigid diet, often exceeding the original weight before dieting. Interestingly, in the US obesity epidemic swept the country since the 60s of the last century, at a time and started "of dietary epidemic." And that started earlier - another question? But the answer suggests itself.
So, what do you do? Not pay attention to overweight, deliquescent shapes vanishing waist - not a solution! To begin with, I think, need some clear criteria, when the deviation from the ideal weight (normal) require urgent intervention
. For me, such a criterion is clothing: if more recent great sitting skirt hardly converge at the waist, and favorite jeans menacing cracking at the seams - the time to take urgent action
. However, on a diet, I still can not sit down on any products not refuse, simply reduces portions and add intense sports and dance breaks throughout the day
. I these actions enough to quickly return to normal
. For me, normal weight - a weight at which I look good, easy and comfortable feel, easy to fit into your clothes
. If the ideal is to take the form of mannequins with their strict standards of height, weight, chest circumference, waist and hips, then maybe I to this "ideal" far away, but for him I do not aspire
. Of course, all of this is subjective, but there is a scientific way to determine whether overweight or not
. Nutritionists define the degree of obesity by body mass index
. He calculated: weight in kilograms is divided by the square erected in growth
. The resulting number is the body mass index. If it is greater than 25, then excess weight are available, and if more than 35, then it is obesity.
The very weight is rather arbitrary can be regarded as an indicator in determining the degree of obesity
. When we lead a physically inactive lifestyle, muscle atrophy, and give way to fat
. It is believed the woman for a beautiful shape and good health should have 22-23% fat, and if, with the 22% interest, we do sports, dance, move actively and with an increase in 160 cm weigh, say, 55 kg - everything is fine, but, stop receiving physical activity, even almost no extra weight gaining body fat percentage over 30% - this is over, although the weight has not changed
. This means that we have gained excess fat by replacing it lost muscle, and to regain its 22% body fat, you need to lose weight and weigh 55 kg, and, say, 51 kg
. The percentage of fat is difficult to determine, but there is a rough table, proposed by US experts A
. Hart and A
. To determine the percentage of fat it at home, it suffices to measure the pelvic circumference at its widest point, well, you are sure to rise, and so you know
. Putting on a diagonal line of the first component with a second and see the middle column at the intersection of your percentage of body fat:
| The circumference of the pelvis, see
|| % Fat
Experts often used indicator - lean body mass (BMT), which can also be identified by the following table:
|| BMT kg
Add to this, another 22% for the necessary fat and get your normal weight. BMT can be calculated by dividing the total weight at 0, 78, although this figure that is very conditional.
Normal (ideal) weight - the value of very individual and depends on age, weight and height of the rate of metabolism and bone health. The main thing - to feel comfortable in their shell, and if you decide that losing weight - it is a necessity, then think carefully before you decide on any strict diet. After losing weight - it does not sprint. Diet, fasting, self-constraint can not be long. And willpower could end much earlier than the process of losing weight even budge.
The main products are NOT currently no ban! Rejection of products, if they are really harmful, should occur naturally, when they become indifferent. It is best to gradually introduce into your diet useful products, to find joy in this, eat them with pleasure - and then the process of losing weight is comfortable and irreversible.
