Dieting And Exercise – A Perfect Combination For Losing Weight

Introduction And Background

Just a few days ago, a nine year old girl came up to me and asked me what kind of diet she should follow. She must have heard from me talking to her mother about it. I asked her why she would want to do such a thing, considering that she was perfect for her age. Her answer was ‘I want to be size zero.’ Truth be told, I was more scared than amused by her answer. Nowadays, all everyone wants to do is be the perfect size which ups the scales for everyone else. This just leads to further depression in people who are obese and can’t seem to do anything about it. However, if they are looking for the perfect combination in losing weight, they will find it in both dieting and exercise. The little girl did not really ask about the other twin of losing weight.

Can We Lose Weight Without Dieting?
No we cannot. If we do not diet and only exercise, the only thing we will be doing is maintaining our weight and nothing else. Imagine going to the gym for a strenuous workout but then filling your stomach with the juiciest meal you can think of. The calories that you lost will only come rushing back and that will only cause further a dilemma as you will think that you’re working your soul out and it isn’t making a difference. Without cutting down on the food we eat, it is almost impossible to manage to lose weight. Only those with a fast metabolism might be able to do something about losing weight without dieting but then again, they will hardly gain weight in the first place.

Can We Lose Weight Without Exercise?
Although this is also a bit impossible to do, there are people who have lost weight without exercising and they are not few. Exercise is important in burning calories but merely exercising is not the only solution. If one is dieting and really cutting down on the foods they eat, they can even lose weight by just doing their daily activities. It might take a longer time and they might have to diet for a really long time but they will be able to lose weight. Thus, we can lose weight without exercise.

The Combination Of Dieting And Exercise
This is indeed the ultimate and best combination of losing weight. You will undoubtedly lose weight and you will lose it fast, considering that you do not mess up or take an ‘off day’. Those who really need to lose weight should think of putting both these things together and devising a plan. When you select a diet, they usually tell you how much exercise is required daily or perhaps three times a week, depending on how much weight you want to lose and what kind of diet you are following. Nonetheless, even if a diet does not mention any exercise, try to research certain exercises yourself which can clench your stomach or tone your thighs and arms. If you really want to look thin, you have to do these things.

Do Not Starve…
It is absolutely the worst mistake you can make if you begin to starve yourself rather than dieting a little and exercising. Starving yourself will only make you more irritable and will lower your metabolic rate. Eventually, you will only be irritating yourself and not losing any weight as well. If you starve for a long time, then of course you will lose weight and you might even become a skeleton but the thing is, it will also cause long term defects in your body. A friend starved herself for a long time and pretty soon, she started having health problems. Turns out, her protein level was so down that her body used some of the proteins of her organs! Her heart became weak and she generally became drowsy and lazy. It took her some time to recover but she is fine now. The moral of this story is, if you want to lose weight, do it the proper way. Look up a diet and then decide on the good and bad points of it and whether or not it suits you. If it suits you, then you should do it and then decide on how long you want to do it and what weight loss goal you want to achieve.

Simply put, dieting and exercise go hand in hand. The little girl might have wanted to diet at such a fragile age but it was the wrong time for her and the wrong method. Small kids should run around to lose the baby fat, not diet! For adults, both things are required and necessary for proper and healthy weight loss.
