me save you the money, time, effort and the cost of your good health
by telling you that all these may give you results but not a single
one is the correct answer or solution for your problem of weight
reduction. I have personally tried all of them, lost and gained
weight over and over again.
I can assure you that there is no short cut but there is an answer-
Walk, Water, Diet. If anybody or any clinic promises you results
without this I would say runaway from them. If they say yes, walk,
water, diet and eat our pills or use our machines to give you faster
and better results, turn them down. With only walk, water and diet,
5 years ago I lost 25kgs and have kept it off. What’s more,
with God’ s grace, I keep very good health, I run a home,
work 6’ days a week and raise 3 children and feel healthy,
fit and beautiful.
In my work as
a diet counselor for the last 5 years I have met women who have
cried to me,“ I was 50kgs when I got married. When I reached
62kgs my husband forced me to take diet pills to reduce. Today I
weigh 80kgs”. Another said – “before my wedding
I wanted to lose weight and took a powder and lost from 65 –60kgs”.
Today I am 90kgs.
Diet pills and
powders can be very, very dangerous and harmful to the body. They
could contain appetite suppressors which when discontinued can cause
you to overeat and have a huge weight rebound. Some pills and powders
contain diuretics or laxatives. These make you pass either a lot
of urine or frequent motion which will give you a sudden weight
loss but are very dangerous for your kidneys or digestive system.
them will always say, “its all safe, so and so used it and
has done well, etc.” Don’t be fooled!! Be very, very
careful and avoid them like the plague. Machines in many centers
today are used to heat up the body and raise the body temperature.
It is like having a fever and when you have a raised temperature
your metabolic rate goes up and you burn more calories which may
speed up your weight loss. I find this to be a very unnatural thing
to do and today it may seem harmless but who can guaranty that there
could be no harmful side effects in the future.
We have found
that the same effect of having a raised metabolism can be achieved
by regular walking for 30minutes daily. (6-7 days a week) plus eating
three regular meals with plenty of fiber in the form of whole wheat
bread, atta rotis, and salad and fruits daily. Finally I want to
break a very strong Fat myth- spot reduction I have discussed this
with a professor from Sweden who was an authority in Obesity. I
was born with family history of obesity from both parents. I have
been over weight since age 9 and till I met the professor I wondered
if I am destined to be fat. Here’s the good news ‘no’.
I am living proof that anybody, no matter what the genetic back
ground can lose weight.
He however told
me that one thing cannot be changed the location of fat in your
body is genetically determined. If you have a tendency to put on
weight in one area you have to live with it. When you lose weight
you lose uniformly from your entire body. More will go from where
you have more. No machine or exercise can break or mobilize fat
from one spot. You can only exercise that spot and tone and firm
the muscles in that area but you cannot make fat move only from
that spot. When you walk you exercise 90% of all the muscles in
your body, from head to toe. So this is one of the best ways to
burn calories and tone muscles. Don’t waste time and money
on machines. You may walk outside in the open or even on a treadmill,
but please walk.
