Also, overweight people tend to be overweight most of their lives, at least that is until they decide to do something about it.

As part of a healthy diet and therefore a diet that maintains and controls your weight, it is important to include not only low-calorie foods, but also high-nutrient foods such as sweet potatoes and other such super-foods. We will talk about some alternative foods as we go through this lesson.

According to several national nutritional studies, the number of obese adults has doubled in the past 30 years. It went from 15% in the late 1970s to around 31% today. It’s scary, especially in terms of the cost to the nations health systems.

Chapter One

Cutting drastic calories will mean losing weight faster

This is not the case! If you eat too few calories, you will actually send your body into a tailspin that can actually lead you to gain more weight in the future. This is called yoyo dieting. When you cut a lot of calories from your diet, your metabolism slows down, which is the opposite of what we need to lose weight. During our lives we do this over and over again. Our metabolism goes up and it comes back down just like a yoyo. The net result is a lowered metabolism and hence mid-life weight gain. I’m sure everyone reading this text will recognise this.

VOCABULARY: Tailspin, Yoyo-dieting, Metabolism, Hence, Weight-gain

You will find continually yourself in a state of hunger. If your brain is sent the message that you are not eating and you are hungry, it will cause your metabolism to slow down significantly thinking there is a famine on it’s way. This is your body’s natural protection to preserve life as long as possible.

It doesn’t make losing weight easy and this is why losing weight becomes more difficult the older you get.

We use the term ‘creeping obesity’.

VOCABULARY: Hunger, Brain, Famine, Preserve, Creeping Obesity
