natural for everyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But, evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1-2 pounds per week) are most successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about “a diet” or “program”. It’s about ongoing lifestyle that includes long term changes In daily eating and exercise habits.
At their most basis the word “overweight” an obesity are ways to describe having too much body fat. The most commonly used ratio of weight status today is the Body Mass Index (BMI). Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in metres. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI can be used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems but it is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual.
The good news is that no matter what your weight loss goal is such as 5-10% of your total body weight, is likely to produce health benefits such as improvement in blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugars.
