Weight Loss

Obesity is often described as having an excess body mass, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or above serving as the typical indicator for obesity in adults. Severe obesity, previously termed “morbid” obesity, is characterized by a BMI of 40 or higher.

What is over weight

Obesity is a chronic condition characterized by an excess of body fat. It is most often defined by the body mass index (BMI), a mathematical formula that is highly correlated with body fat. BMI is weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared (kg per m2).

Energy balance is modulated by many factors, including metabolic rate, appetite, diet, and physical activity. Although these factors are influenced by genetic traits, the increase in obesity prevalence in the past few decades cannot be explained by changes in the human gene pool, and it is more often attributed to environmental changes that promote excessive food intake and discourage physical activity.

How you become overweight

If you eat more energy food than your body needs, your body turns it into fat to keep for later use. fat will be deposited based on your genetics either in your abdomen, face, neck, foot, or waist area.

Simple math:

each gram of carbs (like bread, sugar, rice, cake): has 4 Kilo-calories

each one-gram protein (like meat-fish or chicken): has 4 Kilo-calorie

each one gram FAT (like butter, oil, fat in meat and ): has 9 Kilo-calorie

Weight Control Tips By Dr. SEP

Develop new eating habits

  • What you eat: This is the most  important part of your program. you have to develop a habit of buying healthy food.  Follow the food pyramid, eat less sugar, less fat, less salt, and more fiber.
  • Eat less fat: since they have more calories, buy lean meat e.g chicken
  • Use organic meat and fish and chicken: Look at the label of the food: no hormone, no antibiotic add is important. what animals are eating is very important. i.e grass-fed cow meat from Australia or New Zealand is much superior to animals raised by China-imported food, wild Atlantic fish is better than China farm-raised fish or American-raised farm fish fed by China-imported food. chicken is the most problematic protein since chicken grows fast farm raisers can feed them hormones, antibiotics, and china imported food which can contribute to more problems for eaters.
  • Eat less sugar: Sugar is called white poison since it kills slowly. is worse than fat since it is absorbed fast and your body makes it fat by injection of insulin. the rise of insulin and fast absorption will prevent your brain from ordering you to stop eating so in a small amount of time you take in a lot of calories and transfer it to fat and you still feel hungry. Other names of sugar that they put on food labels and don’t want you to notice it is fructose, corn syrup, Malta, fructose syrup, honey, honey syrup, and  these are all sugars they absorb and metabolize the same way.

  • Less diet label item: We don’t know how aspartame or Splenda will affect our body it may take 20-25yr from now till we find out they could cause cancer
    • Less fat milk and cheese is better, buy organic no hormone
    • Organic food: is better but you should know different organic foods exist and read the labels. Some of them say no growth hormone but have antibiotics some say no hormone but are fed by China imported food that has hormones and antibiotics.
  • Why you eat: Many people eat to be polite. Ask yourself the real reason you’re eating, and don’t be afraid to say “no
  • Where you eat: Sometimes you may eat because of where you are not because you’re hungry. So try a new rule: you’ll only eat at the dining table or you won’t eat after 8:00 pm
  • When you eat: some people starve all day and then eat at night this is wrong since you raid the fridge and food at night. if you eat three meals a day you’re less likely to overdo it
  • How you eat: when you run it’s easy to overeat. it takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain you full so slow down on eating.
  • Keep a record of what you eat: every day record how many grams of fat-protein and carbohydrates you eat and then at the end of each day 
  • Balance your calories in & out: your body needs the energy to do its regular function and it burns it to do that like moving, and absorbing food, if you get fewer calories in per day and you spend more calories you lose weight ie 1500 kcal IN but 2000 kcal out = 500 kcal loss if you loose 500 kcal per day in one week you lose 0.5-1 pound per week simple math is trying to take 250 kcal less and exercise 250 kcal per day = 500 kcal/day then u lose 1 lb per week
  • Start Exercising: 4-5 times a week do exercise that you like for 30 minutes at least. it not only helps you lose calories but decreases your appetite.
