Weight loss is when you lose weight due to whatever reasons. There is intentional and unintentional weight loss. Intentional weight loss is usually normal and not related to any health issues or diseases. Weight is also contributed by fat accumulation around your belly. Fat loss treatment can help you handle this issue.
Unintentional weight loss is usually alarming or related to health issues and diseases. Although it is usually related to illnesses, sometimes, unintentional weight loss is something normal and expected. This is when you are under starvation, following military training, migration, or a decrease in appetite.
Most Malaysians are a foodie and as a result, most of us are overweight or obese. Most of us also have belly fat and this is so disturbing. Like body temperature, body hydrational status, and sleeping hours, weight should also maintain at an optimum level. Low body weight and obesity are both not normal or healthy. The way to measure your optimum body weight is by referring to the Body Mass Index(BMI).
BMI is used because optimum weight is different from one person to another. BMI is describing your weight in proposition to your height. So you should always keep your weight at an appropriate level concerning your height. Weight is super dynamic while height is more static.
Removing belly fat involves two main components. They are diet and exercise. You need to alter your diet and exercise routine. Let’s start with your diet. Gaining or losing weight is closely related to your food intake. The first thing you can do to alter your diet is by practicing the quarter-quarter-half plan which has been introduced by the Ministry of Health. Divide your plate to a quarter of carbohydrates, a quarter of protein, and half of fruits and veggies.
The next thing to do is to start using calorie intake monitoring apps. Depends on your lifestyle, there is a specific amount of calories you can take per day to lose weight. You must know that you can only lose 0.5-1kg per week. You shouldn’t lose more as it is not healthy. Other than that, you can also change the cooking method. Stop frying your food, reuse your cooking oil for other dishes, or use too much salt and sugar.
Start boiling, stew or grill your food instead of frying. The other thing is to stop consuming junk food and fast food. Consume less salt and sugar in drinks and desserts too!
The other component is exercise. Live a healthy and active life. Make sure you exercise at least three times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes per session. You can use a watch that can track your burnt calories to make it easier for you to cut down weight efficiently. Always remember that excess belly fat is a risk factor for many chronic diseases like a heart attack. Control what you eat and burn all the existing fat by exercising regularly to stay healthy.
