Dieting is the system of reducing the weight of the body to a preferable size. When you are dieting, you are simply reducing your present body weight in order to make yourself fit and smart. What we shall be talking about in this article is dieting or getting a weight loss.
What is the status of your health now? As we say, health is wealth. Yes, that is a very true statement. There is nothing anyone can do in life without health. On a more serious note, I could write this article simply because I'm healthy. Are you really healthy or not? You must regulate your health if you so wish to live long on earth and the greatest way to achieve this is by checking your weight regularly. This very way and other great ways of regulating health are discussed below.
An old Chinese man, who happened to be the oldest man in the world was interviewed, some years ago about the secret of his longevity. These were his responses:
The old Chinese man started by saying that he is such a man who loves to work but knows how to rest. This was a true live interview. He said he has a tree with many leaves on it behind his bedroom, very close to the window. Whenever he wanted to sleep, he would sleep on his bed which was located near the same window so that he could enjoy the fresh air that was being generated by the leaves. Besides putting his bed near his window, over 98 percent of the measures by which he regulated his health were based on dieting naturally.
He took water on rising daily. He ensured that he was taking at least five litres of water everyday. Sometimes, he would take more than that. He ensured that he did not take any medical drug at all because of the side effects. There is much healing in taking plenty of water. This was confirmed by the Chinese man. With much intake of water daily, there is no way you can build weight. So for you, it's a great way to lose weight naturally.
He further spoke about eating fruits and vegetables. He particularly mentioned, among others, fruits like water melon, apple, orange, cashew, banana and so on. Eating a combination of three or four of these fruit types will enhance the burning of fat in the body and dieting is made possible. Vegetables will also help a lot in dieting. Most dieticians today speak seriously on the efficacy of taking vegetables at home.
As for dinner, do not eat again anytime after 7:00 pm. There are some enzymes in our body system that help in digestion, but these enzymes become dormant or inactive anytime from 7:01 pm downward. This means if you like having your dinner at 8:00 pm, the enzymes will no longer be active to help digest the food. Eventually, your body weight increases geometrically daily. Whenever you are unable to have your dinner by 7:00 pm, you are strictly advised to forget dinner for the day. This is a natural measure to lose weight.
If you are serious about losing weight, you must drastically reduce the content of sugar that you take per day. Sugar content is capable of making you put on weight against your wish. So you would need to be disciplined in order to successfully reduce weight because most of the food items already contain sugar.
Furthermore, you must also reduce the quantity of food you eat daily lest you find it difficult to control your weight. The moment your weight increases uncontrollably, you automatically have more tendency to fall sick at regular intervals no matter how frequent you take medical anti-malaria drugs. When fat becomes too much in your body, your body weight automatically increases and your health condition will be getting worse everyday.
Taking balanced diet daily is another great way to check and regulate your weight. There are five nutrients in the food we eat daily and these nutrients are: carbohydrate; protein; fats and oil; mineral salt; and vitamins. You must ensure that whenever you want to prepare your food, balanced diet is necessary. For example, if you are preparing jollof rice, it will do you a lot of benefits if you can add eggs, margarine, meat, fish and some other nutritive ingredients so that you make a balanced diet for the sake of your health. Eating balanced diet guarantees sound health for you because of the nutrients in them.
