Weight loss is simple. Really it is. So if weight loss is so simple then way are so many people overweight and why do so many people struggle to lose weight. Because I said weight loss is simple as in the science of weight loss is simple. I did not say it was "easy". Just as the science or the theory behind flight is simple - but it took man generations to build machines that could do what birds and bees could do naturally.
Simply put - burn more calories then you take in - lose weight. See the science is simple, but doing that - now that is the part that is not always so easy, and why so many people are overweight and why there is a multimillion-dollar weight loss industry. However if you approach any weight loss solution keeping that simple equation in mind - you will realize that losing weight and keeping it off really is also not all that hard.
So what is key to effective weight loss? Diet and exercise. Muscle consumes calories - fat stores them, build muscle, decrease fat - lose weight. Weightlifting and weight training is a great way to get in shape and stay in shape. Lean muscle raises the metabolism, but working out does not necessarily burn enough fat. And lets face it if everyone had the time to eat right and exercise enough -again there would not be that multimillion dollar diet and weight loss industry.
But sometimes all we need is a little help. And that help could be in the form of one of the latest advances to come down the pike in the science of weight loss in a long time. Fat binders. Fat binders as the name implies are molecules that bind to fat, and do not allow the fat to be absorbed by the body. Now Fat binders are not a substitute for exercise, but they are a great way to help even out the equation, because if you absorb and store less fat - then that is that much less fat and calories that you need to work off - that simple.
So if you really want to lose weight, start a good exercise program that include strength training and aerobics, eat lots of fruits vegetables and whole grains, avoid junk foods an processed foods - and get a little help form some of the latest advances in weight loss products and nutritional sciences.
