Weight loss and diet are age-old concerns of people all across the world. While various theories abound explaining reasons for obesity, so do solutions pour in day in and day out doling out weight loss tips and diet techniques.
In the earlier days, Body Mass Index (BMI) was the sole criterion to advise people about the normal weight he or she should have for a given height of the person. Lately, it was observed that Girth Index or Ratio was more important to determine obesity. As far as food intake is concerned, the original theory was of a balanced diet. Subsequently, the calories theory was touted as the only way to gain or lose weight.
There are several books that give the details of calories contained in various food stuffs. These books on weight loss and diet tips also contain details of Glycemic Index (GI). The GI is said to be essential in diet plans since knowledge of this can help in controlling glucose release over a greater period of time. Several doctors and fitness experts have done research and came out with modified theories from time to time. One of the essential factors acknowledged by one and all is the performance of regular physical exercise.
Even when it comes to physical exercise, there are several theories and differing opinions among the experts and practitioners of physical fitness. A balance of right food and right amount of physical exercise is recommended. People have jogged for ages to find some new discovery that jogging may not help - in fact, it is not recommended by some at present. A latest finding concludes that one's blood group determines what type of food he or she should eat.
The changing theories are all bound to create confusion in the minds of common people. I feel, a morning walk is good for health, especially for the lungs. Sufficient intake of water soon after getting up from the bed in the morning and a glass of water before retiring to bed at night is found to keep a person safe from ordinary diseases and ailments. Food taken lightly at the proper times and staying away from sweet meat, fried stuff, milk products, oily foods, alcohol etc. keeps one fit and healthy.
But now-a-days, we find several weight loss pills recommended in the marketplace for quick and fast weight loss. These are to be certainly avoided. Any pill by itself cannot help one to lose weight or otherwise. Unless a proper diet, physical exercise and healthy habits are followed, there is no solution to weight loss or gain.
