The Best Weight Loss Plan for You

Well I'm sure I have beat this horse to death but the best weight loss plan is really the one you will actually follow. Losing weight is really not rocket science. All you have to do is eat less than you burn and the weight will come off. That basically leaves you with two options.

  • Reduce the amount of food you eat: The best weight loss plan doesn't have restricted foods or consist of just eating vegetables all the time. Use common sense and cut back. If you are going to poison yourself by eating fast food, that fine it's your right to do so but take it easy. Be aware that a typical "value" meal at any fast food joint is packing about 1200 calories. For most people that is about 75% of the calories needed in an entire day and doesn't have anywhere near the proper nutrients or ability to keep you full all day.
  • Exercise more: You can't exercise yourself out of a terrible nutrition program but adding some more exercise to your day would qualify as part of the best weight loss plan. Ideally you should be getting about an hour a day of exercise. It doesn't matter if it is walking, running, weight lifting, swimming, or whatever it is you enjoy as long as you do it on a regular basis and it is enough to push you into a calorie deficit.

Visceral Fat is Dangerous to Your Health

Visceral Fat

Visceral fat is dangerous to the human body as it is the kind of fat that resides around your internal organs. These fats are most of the time found on the stomach region. This is the primary reason why you have a big belly. Big bellies are actually unpleasant to the eyes most especially when they are bulging and the size continues to increase. Besides the unpleasant appearance, the growth of your belly due to the increase on the volume of visceral tissue inside your body is directly linked to the occurrence of diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and some cancer.

Weight Loss Drugs are Hitting the Market Soon

I'm not going to bore you to death with all the medical mumbo jumbo about why these drugs are not the answer to your problems as that is being done to death by plenty of others who typically bring up all the side effects, increased risks, and deaths attributed.
