Although most people over simplify weight loss and say things like calories in, calories out, if you ever tried to lose weight, you probably know that losing weight is a bit more complex than this.

Here is an 8 things for losing weight and staying healthy.

Before you start losing weight, here are some general principles:

  • The goal should be to cultivate healthier eating habits, be more active for long term weight loss success.
  • Maintain a log of your food and activity on a daily basis using any online food and activity logs or your smart phone apps such as myfitnesspal.
  • Instead of worrying about the fat, focus more on the glycemic index and go low glycemic, low saturated fat.
  • make sure to drink plenty of water - aim for drinking about 8 glasses of water a day to reduce the risk of constipation and cramps.
  • Increase fiber intake in your food.
  • Portion control the food
  • Increase physical activity
  • Understand the 5 proven measures to lose weight

What went wrong with our diet?

Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.

Why the food pyramid failed?

The now withdrawn and failed food guide pyramid was a disaster as it advocated a low fat, but glycemic diet that leads to increased risk of insulin resistance which in turn causes weight gain.

Metabolic starvation in the obese

Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!
