The first thing that comes to a person’s mind when thinking of weigh loss is to follow all those instructions they find in the internet and newspaper, or perhaps buy some weight loss pills or products – but the fact is that these things do not work efficiently. On the other hand, losing weight is nothing but getting rid of calories. Let us discuss how we can lose weight without the help of any pills.
A person should count all the calories he eats throughout the day. This might be a good start to estimate how much he uses and how much is stored in his body. Although this might seem a bit bothersome, but it is at least better than the weight loss pills out there. At the end of the day, he needs to add up all the calories he consumed.
The following day he should eat 500 calories less. Suppose he used to take 2000 calories, so now he will reduce it to 1500 calories a day, and continue it for a week.
Instead of eating big meals 3 times a day, he should spread it to smaller meals 5 times a day. This way his metabolism rate will increase, and he will burn more fatty acid.
What are the comparisons between pills and anti-fat jab?
The new anti-obesity drug liraglutide proved to be two times more effective than other weight loss pills, according to The Times. A study had been conducted recently with 564 obese people, and they were injected with one of the four different types of daily dosage of liraglutide, or provided with orlistat pill or jab three times daily. The patients were provided with calorie free diet, and their physical activity was increased. The results came out to be a weight reduction of 7.2 kg for the liraglutide, while only 2.8 kg for pills. Since the injection of liraglutide is used to treat type 2 diabetes, researchers are still in doubt about the long term effects of the drug.
The research was financed by the drug’s Danish manufacturer Novo Nordisk A/S, and was conducted by Professor Arne Astrup and a team from the Denmark University of Copenhagen. The aim of the research was to show the importance of controlling obesity while there are just a handful of effective and safe drugs currently available in the market. The drug also improves blood pressure and blood sugar control if taken in a dose of 1.8 mg daily.
Is Green Tea A Path To Faster Weight Loss?
There is a large amount of speculation that green tea helps people lose weight faster. This is supported by the fact that many weight loss pills have “green tea” listed in the ingredients printed at the back.
Green tea is much safer and healthier than factory manufactured diet pills as it is completely organic. Although they do not state fictitious weight loss aims, they help the body burn more calories and prevent the body from absorbing excess fat.
The body converts the food – all the sugar and fat –that we eat into an element called triglyceride, which we then burn for energy. When we eat too much, there is excess triglyceride. This later gets stored as fat. The most useful way green tea helps you lose weight is that it holds large amounts of polyphenols which produces enzymes that breaks up the extra triglyceride.
Green tea also holds a nutrient called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) which helps promote the metabolism rate and speeds up weight loss. This nutrient when combined with caffeine makes the body release the fat to the blood which is then burned for energy. As well as burning the fat from the body, they also provide excess energy to help you work and exercise more, thus helping you burn further calories.
