How to Lose Weight
How to lose weight and maintain the right weight? The effective method is essentially based on diet and physical activity.
The diet is the pivot of the cure since the excess of fat (and weight) depends on the habitual introduction of a quantity of calories exceeding the calories usually consumed (positive energy balance).
To lose weight it is necessary for the subject with excess body fat to introduce fewer calories than he consumes (negative energy balance), so that the body is forced to use the energy reserves accumulated in the fat tissue.
For example, if a person’s need is 2700 calories a day, taking only 1700 calories on a diet corresponds to a daily deficit of 1000 calories and, since one kilogram of fat tissue corresponds to 7000 calories, with this diet you get a weight loss of about one kilogram a week.
This, in an obese individual who wants to lose weight, is the optimal loss of weight, if there are no particular reasons for urgency, because a drastic diet causes a rapid weight loss, but has various drawbacks, in particular the loss of musculature, insufficiency of indispensable nutrients and exposes more to the risk of relapses.
So the weight loss diet must be judiciously low-calorie, complete, varied, balanced and pleasant.
