For years you’ve been told by various experts that exercise is the only effective way to slim down and lose weight. While exercise definitely makes an impression on the shape of your body (depending on the type of exercise), you may have noticed that you’re not really losing much fat or weight.
How, then, do medical weight loss plans (like Slender Wonder) help people lose 7 kg in the first month, give or take a few kilos? The secret lies in weight loss plans based on a healthy lifestyle.
Low-GI eating plan
Low-GI (Glycemic Index) foods are those which are digested and metabolized more slowly, which results in a slower rise in blood glucose levels. This ensures that your body is provided with a slower-forming and longer lasting source of energy, giving you more time to use up the energy being generated by your food. You also feel satiated for longer, as your body can go for longer periods without needing to ‘refuel’.
Low-GI foods are also helpful if you have difficulties with your insulin production, as your body needs less insulin to handle this slowly released source of blood glucose.
Loss of ‘bad’ fat over kilograms
While these weight loss plans do focus on shedding those unwanted kilos, this is not the sole focus of a truly healthy eating plan. Eating healthily will help you reduce the amount of ‘bad’ fat in your body, while at the same time keeping your muscles healthy with products like protein shakes.
The point here is that you need healthy muscle mass, and muscle does way more than fat. So, while you will lose weight in fat, you will also keep a healthy, balanced amount of weight in muscle (that’s a good weight, so don’t worry).
Reduce your sugar intake
Recent medical studies have begun to reveal that sugar plays a major role in obesity. A study in a BMJ Open article indicates that the prevalence of obesity has been reported to drop by between 1.5% and 10% with a reduction in the intake of added sugars by 10% to 20%. It may seem small, but a 10% reduction in obesity could affect millions of people.
