Weight-loss basics

Overeating causes weight gain. Genes, behavior, and the environment all contribute to overweight and obesity. The complex nature of obesity's contributing factors makes it difficult to identify long-term, successful weight loss and maintenance treatments. 1-3% of people who lose weight keep it off.

Heredity contributes to obesity, says research. Lack of exercise motivation and social and physical environments that encourage overeating and under-exercising are to blame. Obesity's underlying causes are the focus of weight-control strategies. Let's discuss weight loss methods, their risks and benefits, and the best combinations. We'll also look at how to keep off weight, which could contribute to the obesity epidemic.


Healthy weight loss

It's normal to want to lose weight quickly. A recent study found that people who lose weight slowly (1 to 2 pounds per week) are more likely to keep it off. Weight loss requires more than a "diet" or "program." It's about eating well and exercising regularly.


A healthy weight requires a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Weight loss stages

A quick initial phase is followed by a slower, longer phase of weight loss.

Rapid weight loss

You'll lose weight quickly. The first phase of your weight loss journey will see the most weight loss and changes in appearance and clothing size. This happens within four to six weeks. Weight loss comes from carbohydrates, protein, water, and body fat stores. People who follow a low carb or ketogenic diet lose weight quickly due to carb depletion and water weight. Age, sex, initial weight, and physical activity can affect your weight loss rate. Males tend to lose weight more quickly than women, and the elderly may lose weight more quickly than younger people. Start with a heavier weight and increase your workout to see faster results.


Moderate weight loss

The second stage of weight loss is more gradual than the first and results primarily from fat loss. When you lose very little weight, you may hit a weight loss plateau. Metabolic adaptations that reduce your metabolism and calorie burn may cause weight loss plateaus. Many diets are too strict and difficult to follow, so people stray, causing weight loss plateaus. Choose an eating routine that fits your schedule and tastes so you can maintain it. If you want to lose or maintain your weight, you should change your diet and routine.
