3 surprising ways to lose weight and 1 undeniable truth

Companies often claim to have found a miracle cure for weight loss, however, generally, they are just a marketing gimmick, with little to no proof that they actually work.

In reality, to lose weight, a person must expend more calories than they take in. This simple equation WILL result in weight loss, whichever way you look at it. This is the miracle cure, it is that simple. That being said, in order to lose weight in a healthy way, a person must ensure that their diet is in order, by swapping junk food for complex carbohydrates, taking in good quality protein, ensuring they eat fruit and vegetables and by drinking plenty of water, whilst also ensuring that they do enough exercise, whether it be in the form of cardio, or weight training, or ideally, a mixture of both. A person doesn’t have to stick to this 100% rigidly forever, although someone looking to lose serious amounts of weight probably should stick to it for a long time. Someone looking to lose weight, but not huge amounts, should largely base their diet around this way of eating, but allow room for manoeuvre, allow the occasional chocolate bar, allow the odd glass of wine, or a couple of pints of beer.

3 surprising ways to lose weight

  • Chiropractic help: Many dieters fail because of their bodies are not receiving the nutrients that their bodies require to lose weight because of the restriction in calories they are taking in, and instead, end up hungry, and bow to their bodies pressure, which leads them to eating more food, and failing their diet. This prompted people in the health industry to develop a different approach to weight loss. This includes guidance in nutrition, physical activity, and even mental therapy and physical therapy.  In this case, Chiropractors can be a real benefit to someone who is looking to lose weight. Some studies suggest that spinal adjustments and manipulation of the spine can be effective when it comes to weight loss. The increased flexibility a person will benefit from chiropractic treatment, enables their body to take pressure off the spine, meaning their spine can be aligned correctly, which helps when it comes to the absorption of nutrients, and oxygen. These two factors, especially the absorption of nutrients, can lead to the patient feeling less hungry, and their body enabled to take in the nutrients it needs to successfully lose weight. Chiropractic treatment doesn’t guarantee weight loss; however, when aided by exercise and a good diet, it can certainly help!

  • Massage: There is evidence to suggest that massage can help with weight loss too, as it can benefit the building of muscle, and the ability of the body to reach a higher fitness levels, further enabling weight loss. This is because after a workout, muscles are likely to be sore, and need time to rest and recover. However, massage can significantly increase the rate at which they recover, meaning that a person can train at a higher intensity a higher percentage of the time. Massage is also believed to increase metabolic rate, which means that the body actually burns more calories a day, even at rest, meaning that the amount of weight loss over a day is increased.

  • Sleep: Sleep and you’ll lose weight. Seriously. There is substantial medical evidence that suggests that someone who doesn’t get much sleep is far more likely to be overweight than someone who gets the optimum 8 hours of sleep a night. This is because when a person doesn’t get enough sleep, the body releases Leptin and Ghrelin, which can alter how full a person feels. Ghrelin is produced in the intestine, and stimulates appetite, whilst Leptin, which is produced in fat cells, lets the brain know when a person is full. A lack of sleep drives the levels of Leptin down, meaning a person is likely to feel unsatisfied; regardless of how much they eat, whilst the body also drives the levels of Ghrelin up, meaning that a person’s appetite is stimulated. This can lead to people over eating, and not losing weight, therefore, if someone sleeps more, their Ghrelin goes down, and their Leptin levels go up, which may result in more weight loss, regardless of how impractical it might be!

  1. Nice post. I agree with you post. In your post you mention very easy and fast tips to lose a weight. Everyone can follow this tips, there is no physical stress.

  2. I agree that there is no miracle cure of losing weight. It also depends on the individual and their motivation. Many of us trying to convince people to act towards this target but hardly ever succeeded.

    At any rate, this is another effort towards that target and I support it.

    Thanks for posting.

  3. Nice and informative post. If you are overweight, then losing weight should be done gradually, and
    steadily. The process should not be rushed, and one should never lose more
    than 10 kg a week. This is the safest way to lose weight. There are
    several reasons why you weigh what you weigh.
    For example, If you’re looking to lose weight effectively you will not
    find a magic pill, food or drink that will allow you to slim down without making any serious changes in your lifestyle. It’s sad but true.

  4. Obesity is a common problem. People are joining yoga and gym classes to cut of extra weight. Some people get benefits from them. If you have money then you can join them, but without it you can’t. The cheapest way to reduce your weight is morning walk and self exercise. Along with this you can use weight loss products to give a shape to your body.

  5. If you need tips on how to lose weight fast, there’s a few things to keep in mind. Programs are great-but make sure you find one that teaches HOW to eat and HOW to exercise for the healthiest outcome.

    I agree with the 3 tips partially. Being under a doctor’s care when modifying your diet and/or exercise habits is a good thing.

    Getting a massage IS WONDERFUL.

    And sleep is not only wonderful-it is necessary!

  6. A large number of people face the problem of obesity these days due to their unhealthy eating habits and lack of any physical activities. Such people are constantly in search for various natural mediums for shedding off the extra pounds from the body. Natural weight loss pills are one of the most preferred options by the obese people in order to part of with their surplus body fat. Under the natural weight loss pills options, various prescriptive and non prescriptive tablets are covered. Ayurvedic medicines are one of the safest and secure mediums for losing weight in a healthy and effective manner. Ayurveda has been there for a number of centuries, and has experienced a lot of advancement and development since then.
