The basic rules of weight loss for men

I want to note that rational and proper nutrition, it is highly recommended not only for the maintenance of the good physical form, but also for the prevention of diseases of the heart and blood vessels.

Large errors in the diet

Rules of weight loss
  • Eat more than is necessary. We should not continue to eat when it is saturation, but the food is on the table still. This feature is borrowed from our ancestors who have eaten their fill, do not know when there will be a lunch next time. Also, often this habit comes from childhood, when the boys teach you: eat a lot of you will be strong and great.
  • A large number of "heavy" food. Many men think that the broccoli and cooked the fish – food is for wimps, preferring dumplings, bacon, meat, fatty, white bread, with mayonnaise and everything that is rich in calories and quickly saturates. Of course, calories is needed, but not in such numbers.
  • Snacking in front of a computer (TV). Often they turn into a full meal, while the man does not believe that such food is only one tooth. The danger lies in the fact that the biting of the TV or computer, you will lose a sense of proportion.
  • Calories in alcohol. A seemingly harmless beer (even one beer after a hard day's work) awakens the appetite and reduces the feeling of satiety. And the calories that are ingested with the alcohol completely volatilize, especially in combination with sugar, which contain sugary drinks (juices, lemonades, etc.). Because of this, as a rule, the deterioration of the metabolism, and the body is dehydrated.
  • The sport will remove the effects of a poor diet. It is naive to think that sports activities will produce the desired result, if before and after them to continue to eat wrong. This fact was confirmed by the study. If you systematically go to the gym, of course, better blood circulation, but excess weight will not go away. Need comprehensive program: diet + sport.

There are three main reasons due to which the has a big belly:

  • The sedentary way of life. Most of the time the male migrates between the office chair, car seat and sofa (obliques become weaker).
  • Changing hormonal levels. It can happen with age or after stressful situations (deposited fats on the thighs and stomach).
  • Poor diet. To this point include: overeating, fast food and high calorie drinks (in general deterioration of the physical form).

The deposition of fat in the body, not only do not give any advantages, but is a sign of a predisposition for diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

The experts made the calculation: if the growth of 170 cm the waist is 94 cm, the risk of middle disease. When the waist reaches or exceeds 101 cm, the risk is high.

Many people are asking: "What can I do to lose weight?". The answer is simple – diet and exercise. In addition, the products must be not only useful for its intended purpose.
