WEIGHT LOSS CAN BE BENEFICIAL OR DANGEROUS, IF NOT DONE CORRECTLY. Choose a weight loss program that works and guarantees long-term results. The best way to lose weight is through natural means. It is a slow process, but results in permanent weight loss. It is very, very safe because there are no side effects or permanent damage to any of your vital organs. A natural weight loss program is all about changing the rate of metabolism.

Natural vs. Artificial Weight Loss Program

A natural weight loss program consists of a combination of planned diet and physical exercise. It is this combination that hastens the process of natural weight loss. The diet should be balanced, high in nutrients and essential vitamins and minerals but low in fats and carbohydrates. Eat less, and when possible, exercise more. Your body will start to lose weight as long as it burns more energy than it can store.

In contrast, an artificial weight loss program usually uses some unnatural means, like pills, surgery, or crash diets. It is a quickfix approach that employs severe caloric restriction and suppression of some natural physiological functions, making the body react as though it were sick. Weight loss occurs within a short period of time, but what is really lost is water and not the fat, which is the real culprit of your condition. After the program, weight is easily regained as your body indulges in eating to recover the energy lost as a result suppressing some natural function of the body.

Natural Weight Loss Program

A natural weight loss program is based on the premise that body should continue what it naturally does to continue sustaining itself – viz. eat, move, sleep. Therefore, it should eat natural food, and perform physical work. Our modern way of living, however, deprives us of this opportunity to use it the way it is intended for. To solve this problem, exercises have been invented for different particular purposes.

Eat Natural Foods

Natural weight loss program calls for eating foods in their natural state. It does not rely on caffeine, drugs or fad diets, but build new habits and awareness. Natural foods are not processed with any chemicals, hence are not unhealthful for you. Processed foods, such as those coming from the factories, are one of the major causes of excessive weight gain since these foods carries preservatives and various dyes. Adhere to natural foods only, and never ever go after processed food.

Eat Raw Foods

To reduce your weight using natural ways, you should stick with mostly uncooked food. It is basically eating raw plant-based foods. Eating raw meat is not advisable because it can cause severe illness due to various germs that remain unkilled. Cooking foods is known to destroy enzymes, as well as destroy or reduce many other nutrients. And so, eat all you want, as long as it is raw, and still enjoy weight loss.

Do Not Skip Meals

Skipping meals should not be resorted to, as this can be counterproductive to your weight loss program. Consistent calorie restriction will cause you to decrease your metabolism and gain rather than lose weight.

Exercise At Least Three Times a Week

For those who do not burn fat easily, the only way to improve the metabolism rate is to exercise. Choose an exercise program that is suitable for your fitness level, and will work for you. There are types of exercises that aim specifically for weight reduction.

In barbell training, for example, the technique to achieve weight loss is to carry light weights, with which you are able to perform at least 15 repetitions. Exercise the larger muscles groups. These muscles burn more fats and calories without having to train longer.

Herbal Supplements to the Natural Weight Loss Program

The taking of herbal supplement can be part of your natural weight loss program. Usually, they come in the form of tablets or tea. These herbs help in the cleansing of the system that carry excess baggage due to unassimilated food. Herbal supplements should only be that – supplements. Never use these herbal remedies without taking advice from an expert.

The natural way is the best way to lose weight, and feel good about yourself at the same time. The natural way is there to help you look good on the outside, while cleaning your body up on the inside to make you feel 100% good all over. Using a natural weight loss plan may take time to reach your goal – maybe even a year. But in just one year from now you can enjoy being permanently healthy and trim! Consistency is the key.

When dieting to lose weight, due to the reduction in the food eaten, the intake of various vitamins is also reduced, which is likely to cause the symptoms of various vitamin deficiencies and cause the sequelae of weight loss. But in fact, vitamins do not have calories, and some can also help calorie metabolism. For example, B1, B2, B6, and B12 in the vitamin B group can promote the metabolism of fats, proteins, and sugars.
