Weight-loss is always a hot topic, new diets appear every day promising fast results. Because most diet plans overpromise results, the word “diet” often has a bad connotation and seems something very difficult to do.
Many people try several diets only to find out they gain weight shortly after. And then they get upset. Others don’t do diet because don’t know where to start. There are 3 key components of an effective diet: health, nutrition and exercise.
Before starting any diet, everyone should check with their doctor if they are healthy enough to start loosing weight. Starting a diet without a doctor’s advice can lead to poor results and even diseases.
Trendy diets often don’t take into account the different nutrition needs each individual has. No two people are alike, so diets shouldn’t be the same for everyone. A nutritionist evaluates a person eating habits, tastes and weight loss needs to create a tailor-made diet plan, customizable to the various stages of weight-loss.
Whoever wants to lose weight exercise is key. Exercise will make the body to burn calories and get rid of excess fat. No one should start exercising without assessing their health conditions first and the proper advice from a doctor.
These 3 components need to work in an integrated and combined way that is different for each of us.
