Weight loss is a great science! No wonder why, one to five people living in modern developed countries have more weight than normal. Obesity is more oppressive than cancer. On the other hand, if someone is 4 pounds thicker than normal, run a greater health risk than if he smokes 25 cigarettes a day. High blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, varicose veins, arthritis, galls stone and in a multitude other hazardous situations can be directly attributed to the overweight problem. Of course no one can say with certainty that excessive weight is always the direct cause of these diseases. But anyway these diseases are associated with obesity. But why so many people are thick; Perhaps thickness is up to factors beyond man’s control? As heredity, hormone imbalance or glands malfunction? What is the link between eating and obesity?  Why people gain weight when food amount we take is quite normal and often below normal?  Sometimes being overweight is due to body’s inability of fluids elimination properly. Hormones imbalance and hereditary factors certainly play a role. However, hormonal disorders and glandular abnormalities are of minimal importance in obesity. Human body can be compared with a wonderful, precise and balanced machine. Like all machines need a source of energy to put into motion and to continue working. The human body just takes energy from solid foods and liquids. It should be understood that both the energy values ​​of foods and fluids differ greatly and is the secret to controlling body weight. The unit of energy called calorie, and in terms of energy foods are divided into carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy. They are contained as sugars and starches in potatoes, but especially in cereals such as bread and flour. When carbohydrates enter the digestive system breaks down into simple sugars such as glucose which is the basic amount of body energy. When glucose is redundant, the body stores it as glycogen in muscle and liver, as body fat. Fats are of two types, saturated and unsaturated. Saturated derived from animals. Saturated fat examples are meat fat, milk and milk products. Unsaturated fat is derived from fish and vegetables. Unlike carbohydrates and fats, proteins do not constitute source of energy but mainly are absorbed for body’s increasing. If proteins production is inhibited nail, hair and red blood cells replacement, would have been stop. Proteins are obtained in the form of meat, eggs and such as beans, peas and lentils from the plant kingdom.
An employee who does sedentary work can use about 2,700 calories during a 24-hours day. A very active person can consume 900 calories extra. Maybe when we get up in the morning, we eat breakfast, and this food is digested and immediately put into action. Then during the day we eat more meals and snacks and perhaps sweets. Very often the body's need for calories is oversubscribed by what we eat. Hunger is the mechanism, which arouse us to seek out more energy. The part of the brain that controls appetite is called hypothalamus. In experiments conducted on animals found that, although this part of the brain stimulated or destroyed, the animals gain weight and become greedy. Even when resting or sleeping our body has a constant need for energy to keep the heart beating, lungs breathing, and the food digested. This is called basal metabolism. The term metabolism is used to describe all the chemical processes taking place in order to maintain life. Whatever shape or size of our body we all have a personal ratio metabolism. But what if we can not eat enough food to meet the demand for our calories? The body then returns to its own stores, and uses the glycogen or fat stored. Otherwise if you eat too much the body stores excess energy in the form of fat. Many drugs used to control appetite. One of them is called amphetamines but which should be avoided because it can lead to serious addiction and often has harmful side effects. In more recent years have created anti-appetizers drugs, but many people are disappointed. Today the variety of pills is great but the effectiveness of therapy in weight reduction is disputed. In most cases overweight problem is solved by adjusting the amount of food you receive. People who want to weaken must consume fewer calories or eating less, or avoiding things that have calories like sweets. The determination and self-control, is necessary attributes to make progress in reducing weight. From a medical standpoint there are tests that allow identifying which foods are inappropriate for your body and responsible for obesity. Medicine can also tell you what food combinations are inclined towards obesity. Nevertheless if you do not manage to slim down then, acupuncture has the ability to block the appetite centers of the brain, reducing thereby the amount of food you receive. Finally, because lose weight does not play a role only the calories received, but the rate of metabolism which is different from person to person. That is, basal metabolism is different between an irritable and a quiet man who lives sedentarily. If these two people get the same caloric diet surely one of the two will not weaken. Spices play’s an important role in the art of slimming which could be given in different combinations depending on man’s type. Another great asset is smokers who maintain a slime figure, and when they decide to quit gain weight. Medicine can really help to stop this harmful habit without the side effects of obesity. Understand that medical help along with your personal effort will allow you to win.
