YOGA FOR FAT LOSS
“Our current sedentary life style has impacted our Diet”
Overweight has major health issues, including type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, heart disease, and some forms of cancer.
Primarily fat around the middle is quite concerning. Extra body weight causes extra baggage leading to back problems and increasing the strain in the joints, and can contribute to or worsen injuries to ankles, knees, hips, and other vulnerable locations of the body.
Being overweight can be both a cause and a consequence of depression and low self- esteem.
Popular current diets are nutritionally unhealthy, imbalanced and in sufficient, without being effective over a long term.
Irregular and periodic dieting causes extreme weight swing which may be more riskier than simply being fat.
While extreme calorie reduction can result in quick fat loss, if you eat less than 1100 calories per day, your body starts breaking down muscle tissue for energy.
Losing muscle mass decreases your metabolic rate, reducing the expenditure of the calories you consume.
As soon as you slip off this kind of extreme diet, the weight you put on will likely be predominantly fat.
Overweight tends to make one self-critical, this constant dissatisfaction raises the stress hormone cortisol, which in turn encourages stress- related eating, which in turn, results in further weight gain & becomes a vicious circle.
The accumulation of fat in the belly results in an apple-shaped body type which relates to diabetes and heart disease.
