Weight Loss


Be realistic, not idealistic. We have an inordinate emphasis on appearance in our society, don't get caught up in the media representation of thinness but determine a health weight for your unique physique. Best

Weight Goal


Try to set realistic goals, not idealistic goals based on our societies over emphasis on beauty. If you become perfectionistic your body will likely rebel at some point, no one likes to live a life of deprivation. Best

Yes


Aiming to be in the "healthy" BMI (body mass index) zone is a good long term goal for weight loss. However, some persons have mainly tummy fat. For those people, being in the "healthy" BMI range may still not be good enough, because excess tummy fat may be a part of "metabolic syndrome". Metabolic syndrome can lead to diabetes, so those patients should reduce tummy fat even if BMI is "healthy".

Can you tell me some primary considerations when setting a weight loss goal?

Answered by:

There are MANY


What age were you when you were at a weight you were happy with? If you have to go back 10-15 years that may be a weight that is too low. What is your current age? Hormones need to be at certain levels & be checked because they deplete with age. Like the sex hormones Testosterone, Estradiol, and Progesterone. A fasting insulin level is critical to know. These will determine what you can lose.

Aerobic Exercise

Haiku

Increase the amount of exercise using your watch. Increase by 5 minutes/day till you reach your goal.

Goal Setting


Goal setting should be with realistic goals and goals that can be achieved through discipline and with a plan. There are no medical doctors that force or recommend such cultural traditions as "new year's resolutions'. That is a tradition. It is not a medical problem.

Bodybuilding


How about putting in the work and staying natural and dedicated. Don't cheat yourself with short cuts. Muscle hypertrophy takes weeks to months to establish. Body builders are hypertrophy ing mainly type 1 endurance fibers. This means you need medium weight, lots of reps and sets with progressively decreased rest. Do it right or suffer more injures.
