Weight Loss Management and Cardiovascular Fitness

Weight loss management may be the single most important step you take towards cardiovascular fitness and a healthy life if you happen to be obese.

Here's why.

It's Not About Excess Weight and Size

It's not just about your excess weight and size. It's about having too much body fat and a body mass index of 30 or higher.

That excess body fat is the reason why you belong to the 'obese' category. The American Heart Association has classified obesity as a major modifiable risk factor to coronary heart disease.

In addition, it is a major cause of gallstones and it can wreak havoc on your joints.

A good weight loss management plan gives you wise choices of food to eat so you get fewer calories.

It also includes a daily physical activity to help you burn off calories you consume. Remember, calorie reduction is the key to effectively lose weight.

How To Lose Excess Weight Without Taking Drugs

Keep A Food Diary

It helps you to keep track of what you are eating and thus reduce the amount without having to count calories, according to the American Heart Association.

Here are some tips that can help make your weight loss plan successful.

  1. Drink aloe gel - Aloe vera contains lipase enzymes which dissolve body fat.

  2. Drink weight loss tea - Researchers found that green tea drinkers burned 70 additional calories in 24 hours. This is caused by antioxidants, known as catechins, which enhance metabolism

  3. Minimize your salt intake - Sodium makes your body retain water heavily and it makes you feel bloated
  4. How much is too much? The daily value is about one teaspoonful. So, better see to it that you're not getting more than that.

  5. Exercise - The AHA recommends doing at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. Make it your goal to get 30 minutes of moderate exercise 5 times per week.

  6. Water - Make it a habit to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily to metabolize your body fats effectively

  7. Never skip a meal - Instead, try to eat 4 - 5 small meals during the day

  8. Foods with fiber - Include them in your diet. The fiber gives you a feeling of fullness

 A Doable Weight Loss Management Plan

Make it a habit also to read labels. Stay away from foods that are loaded with trans fats and hydrogenated oil.

Your weight loss management plan should focus on improving cardiovascular fitness.

Just think about it.

When you manage to attain a healthy weight, you also lower your risk of having diabetes, stroke or a heart attack.
