Fat loss has become such an integral aspect of health and fitness mostly because of lifestyle related issues. This accumulation of multiple bad habits leads to the accumulation of thick layers of fat all over the body, which leads to many adverse outcomes.
65% of the worlds population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight. At the global level, excess body weight is the sixth most important risk factor for ill health. Obesity and overweight were the 5th leading risk for global deaths back in 2014, imagine now.
In India 1 in every 5 men and 1 in every 6 women are overweight. Strangely in a country where the Global Health Index Indicates half of all children being malnourished, many of the Urban Indians now seek treatment for overweight. The benefits of fat loss are plentiful but it should be done right in order to sustain it.
These treatments, most often are worse than the lifestyle disorders which lead people to their obese-situation.
Trying to overcompensate with a restrictive curative diet is never sustainable for someone who couldn’t resist temptation in the fist place which lead them to there weight troubles.
These sacrificial and restrictive diets never work because they demand too much from those who have previously shown a lack of self control. Although the temptation of LOSE 10 KGS IN 28 DAYS and LOSE 6 INCHES FAST is immense for someone desperate. But you fail to understand, that something(FAT) which took years and years of bad habits to build wont go away for good this easy. (even if it does, it will lead to weakness and come back as soon as you are off your diet)
The problem in the body is always because of the problem in the mind. All lifestyle changes which ensures sustainable fat loss and good health starts with modifying your approach and habits, before changing what you eat.View this post on Instagram
Instead of being fooled by Fad Diets invest in someone who can coach you about healthier food relations, align your eating patterns and teach you mindful eating. A nutritionally deficient lean physique is worse than being nutritionally optimal even if it means slowing down the fat loss process. Also participating in Fad diet exhibits a shortcut based mindset which needs a lot of coaching.
There is no hack, no magic pill or balm which will help you in your fight against your fat. Shortcuts will lead to some weight loss but there short nature will lead to a reversal in the weight loss once you get off the diet, and eventually lead to a fatter you,. Worst of all you will be left with a sense of helplessness at your failed attempt.
Improving Food Relations
So rather than blindly jumping on to a trending fad diet, or signing up for a lose weight fast program, you need to start understanding and developing good food relations.
Food Relations implies developing an understanding of taste and nourishment. For you to understand this a little backdrop of common energy requirements is important.
Our body needs a certain number of calories to sustain itself (in specific amounts of carbs, proteins and fats) if we eat more than this we accumulate weight, if we eat less we lose weight and the third option is balance.
All your daily activities, your age, your current weight and height contribute to the amount of calories you need to maintain your current state. So for weight loss you will have to eat lesser calories than this but the major question is to what extent?
A person is said to have good food relations if she can identify foods which are nourishing for the body and consumes them in higher proportions as compared to food items which are only consumed for taste.
Tasty food usually has higher calories in smaller quantities, it is calorie dense, whereas you have to choose to majorly consume food which is nutrient rich, more nutrients in lesser calories.
Food relations will help you create a balance between nutrition and taste so that you consume healthy food without sacrificing on taste. It will help you understand that you shouldn’t stuff yourself with tasty things and you shouldn’t ignore nutritious foods.
When you are eating for the neck up, a little amount is enough to satisfy the taste buds. One piece of chocolate will give you the same taste as 10 pieces, but overeating it will lead to unwanted calories. When you are eating for the neck down, you will need to eat enough to sustain your bodies nutritive requirements.

Developing healthy food relations is about taking control of your mind. Its a habit and will take time to develop. So before forcing yourself into a restrictive diet, use the most powerful part of your body, your mind.
Create a new nutritive perspective, change the way you look at your food, learn how to measure the calories in it, use a scale before you can learn to visibly identify these. Develop recipes which are balanced in terms of taste and nutrition. Sustainable programs are controlled but don’t involve sacrifice. Slow sustainable changes are better than fast ones which wont last.
