Which man would not dream of having a strong muscular body and a flat stomach? Even teenagers and middle-aged men want a good, strong, obese, and lean body. But the truth is that obesity has become a health problem for Malayalee men today.
The causes of obesity in men are many. The main reasons are heredity, a diet high in starch and fat, overeating, and lack of exercise. Men eat more junk food and hotel food than women. Moreover, they are less concerned about their appearance than women. A sedentary lifestyle and that over-the-top lifestyle together can lead to obesity. In general, all the foods eaten by Malayalees are very high in carbohydrates. When excess carbohydrates reach the body and are not expended as energy, excess energy is lost to fat. Thus obesity and bloating occur.
Obesity can also be caused by the use of certain medications and certain diseases. Obesity is caused by taking steroid pills and psychiatric medications for allergies, asthma, eczema, autoimmune disorders, and psoriasis. Cushing’s syndrome, hypothyroidism, and adrenal gland dysfunction can lead to obesity.
Obesity is not just a beauty issue. Recognize that this is a health problem that paves the way for other serious diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Therefore, it is important to control obesity and lose weight.
Identify if you are overweight
The first important thing is to find out if you are overweight. Make sure it is proportional to the height. Check your Body Mass Index (BMA) for this. BMA is the weight in kilograms divided by the height in meters. The ideal BMA is between 18 and 25. (In men, abdominal obesity is more than 90 cm above the abdomen.) Another easy way to calculate BMA is to reduce your height by 100 cm. If your height is 175 cm, then the average weight is 75 minus 100. At 180 cm, the average weight is 80 kg. 5 kg more or less than the ideal weight is not a big problem. If you are five kilos more than your ideal weight, know that you are overweight.
If you decide to lose weight then plan accordingly. The right weight-loss method is to lose weight through a healthy diet over time without harming the body. There are two important things you can do to lose weight healthily. Diet and physical exercise. The diet should be able to continue as a ‘healthy eating plan’ in the future. Weight loss will be followed by fatigue and constant tiredness
Prepare a work plan
Look accurately at a bodyweight digital weighing machine. The weight should be checked on the same machine every time. Look at how many kilos of weight you have and calculate how much you are overweight. Make a note of exactly how much weight you need to lose. Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic-driven world of Earl. Take your photo before you start exercising. Then take a photo every two weeks to see if there is a difference.
Prepare a workout plan for a new diet and exercise. The plan for three months can be written first. Diet and exercise should be clearly written. The timing of the diet should be written down and eaten exactly accordingly. Definitely avoid foods that should be avoided. Body measurements. Weight and changes can be recorded weekly. Exercise should be continued regularly and patiently.
There are many unhealthy diets that promise to lose weight. These are known as fad diets. Do not follow fad diets. Most of these eliminate all the essential nutrients for the body. Some require eating large amounts of food belonging to the same food group. Some include carbohydrates, fiber, and vitamins. Phytochemicals are eliminated altogether. Such a diet has the potential to cause health problems in the future and adversely affect the functioning of body organs. Weight loss will be followed by fatigue and constant tiredness. Talk to your doctor first about the diet you are going to follow and make sure it is healthy.
