Today there are several issues that have become glamorous or “fashionable” and one of them is related to overweight, obesity and diet. It seems that everyone on a diet but it also seems that no one works or at least few people manage to lose weight and maintain an appropriate weight through time. Why is this?

Probably the correct answer to that question do not know anybody, but we have to make some contributions that may help clarify the issue:
• First, people do not fatten at once or in very little time and so a diet lightning out of a magazine and used to lose a few pounds more and they can adjust to suit bought for graduation or the New Year’s Eve party, do not ever offer a solution in the medium or long term. If you are overweight you have taken ten or more years to get, do not wait to get rid of it in a few weeks. DIET think the word comes from the Latin “DIETAE” meaning something that is done every day or something that makes custom (hence that public servants are paid a daily allowance to attend the scheduled meetings, not that they are eating, but they pay) and then a diet is not for a time but for a long period or even for life. Consider for example a person who suffers from diabetes and even certain food intolerance, and that has to carry a special diet. That is not for a short time, for life.

• Second is that we all have preconceived ideas with regard to food and nutritional value of foods. Many of these ideas come from our childhood and the thinking of our parents especially our mother and that makes having improper eating habits and diet alter the programs that give us, even when they are supervised by experts. At the end of the patients make small traps that often give away with the program.

• It is also important to recognize the value of physical exercise in addition to any diet. Recall that we made to move on foot along the plains and jungles, climbing, running, not walking in a car and go up in elevators. That makes our body respond to the sedentary life of the twenty-first century with disproportionate increase in weight. The human body has not had time to adapt to our new lifestyle and food continues to call us as if we were to make large amounts of exercise and spend about three thousand calories a day. But what happens is that not even spend two thousand and the rest accumulates in the rims look that many around the waist and both want to eliminate. The effect of exercise is not only the amount of calories that are lost, but the change in body composition with increased muscle mass or lean tissue “at the expense of fat and also the” thermogenic effect of exercise “which means that after a meeting of about half an hour, metabolism remains increased for several hours, conditioning us to continue losing weight.

• “Any diet is.” This is a statement often heard, but it is not true. The reality is that when we study individual caloric intake, we found significant differences in the amount of calories that a person uses at rest (resting metabolic expenditure) and exercise (expenditure in metabolic activity). So it is necessary to analyze the particular conditions of each patient and the type of activity carried out to devise a nutritional plan to suit your personal needs and needs to a professional nutritionist will follow to ensure success, provided that we have the motivation and cooperation of patients and their families.

The matter of diet, then, is not straightforward and should not be taken lightly. Of course you will fail if it does not follow the proper guidelines and might even seriously ill. Go to a search for a qualified and professional nutritionists to guide and monitor your nutritional plan. Only then can obtain the desired shape and weight.
