Weight Loss For The Inactive Person

Weight loss must be a lifestyle, or so they say. "They" being the folks in the media and the ones in the local gym. It simply must be a lifestyle, as weight gain can more often be attributed to the life one leads rather than of life itself; as not everyone has the luxury to be overweight. But plenty of people out there view the "active" lifestyle as tedious and demanding. This article hopes to remedy that by highlighting the criteria of a casual life, and downplaying them to suit a healthful lifestyle.

Being healthy stems from doing healthful things (and not "healthy" as the papers frequently say), like a proper diet combined with good rest. Before any unconventional weight loss strategy can be implemented, the basics must be in proper play. A balanced diet consists of nutrients the body needs; as to what it needs depends on the individual. And sleep. The body will always require balanced sleep, as sleep on its own is not enough. And a balanced diet can equal a balanced night’s rest, and vice versa.

Cardio. Cardiovascular exercise must be considered separate from all anaerobic activity, such as weight lifting and body building. A cardio workout involves traditional aerobic exercise, like running and doing jumping-jacks. This kind of activity increases the heart rate, which in turn will "burn the fat" as the saying goes. While this article does not necessarily endorse the aerobic method, it addresses the sharp contrast between anaerobic and aerobic; where the former builds body mass, and the latter sculpts away fat. Needless to say, one more than the other is preferable for weight loss.

And coffee can hinder weight loss. Not directly so, but indirectly nonetheless. For people of certain types, the properties found in coffee can affect their bodies in such a way as to give them a sort of beer belly. The LDL fatty acid is especially high in certain coffees, and is considered to be one of the more notorious fatty acids the human body can commonly ingest. Heavy reliance on coffee, with an intake of more than one cup a day, can result in unexpected weight gains. It can also be said that caffeine interferes with the body’s metabolism, thereby speeding it up physiologically and raising one’s appetite. Another thing must be said about those who prefer heavy cream and sugar…

The matter of "night eating" touches on coffee, diet, and good sleep. Studies have not proven that meals late in the night will cause a person to substantially gain weight; as it has more to do with the quantity of meal, and less about when it is eaten. But night eating of itself is not a proactive habit for a healthful lifestyle. Small snacks are fine, and may even prove to aid in sleep, but combined with excess coffee, a bad diet, and a case of insomnia, night eating can become a very adverse enemy. The body burns fewer calories at night as opposed to day, when people are usually more active. A heavy meal followed by very little activity, and eventual sleep, negates any real benefits.
