Weight management is a long term goal which cannot be tackled in a very short period. Imagine a person who is living a very erratic lifestyle with no control on what he is eating. This has been continuing for many years. How is it possible to wash off the sins in a few days? It would require many years of proper dietary control to be able to once again bring your body in a fit and fine shape. Often people go for short term goals and literally starve themselves. It is only a matter of time before the body reverts to its earlier routine which it had been following for many years and the person ends up gaining more weight than before.
In my friend circle which is composed of mostly middle aged people, there is one who has steadfastly maintained a very healthy diet retinue. His theory of weight management is very simple, eat when you are hungry and eat less than your hunger. However it is not a very practical thing to do. Instead there are other and easier ways than living a life like a monk. One of the ways of checking obesitywhich I found very effective is to skip having lunch. This has also been endorsed by many doctors who found the afternoon meals unnecessary and one of the major cause of overweight conditions. Most often lunch is taken by persons at the work place and often this includes junk food. The short lunch hours cause the person to depend upon junk food which is devoured quickly and once again the person is back at his work place.
Talking about junk food, it is safe to declare that junk food and weight management do not go together. Junk food is woefully short in fibers and contains a large amount of bad cholesterol. Most junk foods contain high quantity of preservatives, which again is not good for health. Therefore it is important that persons stay away as much as possible from junk snacks. Junk food has also been indicted as the primary cause of child obesity. Tiffin of kid for the lunch also includes a lot of junk food. It is important that mothers refrain from feeding their kids with such food.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is therefore the first and the foremost step in managing obesity. Eat a well balanced organic food which includes a lot of fibers and raw vegetables. Fibers take longer to digest and give a feeling of satiety for a longer time and suppress the urge to go for a quick snack.
