Throughout this paper you will find that it is going to be discussing many things. Some of those things are to describe a current health problem or nutritional need that I may be experiencing, four nutritional or physical exercise goals, the actions taken to meet each goal, the anticipated setbacks or difficulties and the approaches to overcome them, the outcomes by which to measure success, evidence of the plans effectiveness by addressing the identified problem or need, and the evaluation of potential health risks that may develop if the plan is not implemented. So basically this paper is going to be about a realistic nutrition and exercise plan that best suits me.
In today’s growing world, fad diets seem to be all the rage. As obesity rates are increasing more and more each year with 1/3 of the population overweight and 1/3 of the population obese, many people are trying everything that they can to lose weight. With people in our nation because too busy to exercise, too busy to make healthy meals, and healthy foods being too expensive, many people turn to these fad diets to help control their weight or help them lose their weight. One of the most known fad diet is the Weight Watchers program. The purpose of this study is to find out using both creditable and not so creditable sources if this fad diet actually works.
Close your eyes and pretend you have a reset button for your mind body and spirit when things are not looking or feeling how you want them to. Now you have pressed that reset button making your desires a reality. But this is no scam or magic trick. So, what is the catch you might ask? The catch is simple, just one having patience. It is not what you have to do but more what you don’t have to do. Intermittent fasting is the sustainable lifestyle choice for maintaining health, discipline and spiritual fitness. Intermittent Fasting has been practiced since ancient times. Some religions like Muslim, Christianity, Buddhism and many more still practice Intermittent fasting. Even animals practice fasting in times of sickness to regenerate. Is
Fasting is a body cleansing procedure during which food is restricted and only liquids are consumed. Strictly water fasts are the most brutal; herbal teas and juices made from fresh fruits and vegetables are consumed during a more liberal fast. Juice fasting is the preferred method amongst many doctors and European fasting clinics, perhaps because it is less harsh than other treatment plans.
Extreme dieting may produce results, but they are often not lasting results. In order to achieve healthy goals, Maxfield suggest there must be a change in our daily habits. She argues that food is not inherently good or evil, but our lifestyle could be. Instead of cutting out foods that have been deemed by society as “unhealthy,” humans need to learn to trust their bodies to meet their needs (Maxfield). Goals to meet these expectations should be monitored by healthcare professionals(HCP). HCP can make an impact on their patients by “offering simple and concrete advice (start a realistic exercise program, eat at home ... not just "lose weight"), and emphasizing that even small changes can lead to big health gains” (Gaines). By making goals, setting plans and following up with their patients, HCP can contribute significantly in curing
Obesity, the condition of being severely overweight, is a serious issue in the United States that is gradually beginning to affect more and more citizens. In recent years, the number of Americans suffering from this chronic disease has significantly increased. Researchers have found that nearly one third of the U.S. population is considered overweight and, on average, three hundred thousand individuals die yearly as a result of obesity (Hollands et al. 2). When one participates in little to no physical activity and their diet consists mostly of high fat foods, chances are they will gain weight. If someone becomes obese, they may develop serious health related issues that, in some cases,
The rise of health concerns continues to proliferate throughout the country from increasing obesity rates to the astonishing number of our population with high blood pressure or diabetes. It’s enough to make anyone want to second-guess everything they eat and put in into their bodies. We ask our doctor’s, and ourselves “what can be done?” Eat right, and exercise. Those are the parameters for maintaining a healthy life. So it’s only natural that across the board we’ve got numerous exercise programs to help you lose weight fast or build lean muscle. Then we’ve got every diet under the sun, the no carb diet, high protein diet and all juice diets. Through research we can find and utilize programs and healthy habits that we can practice
Throughout the years celebrities, media, and even some doctors have introduced hundreds of different kinds of diets. They range from juice cleanses to baby food diets and everywhere in between. While some diets may work for a short amount of time most do not last. People often look for weight loss diets claiming they work quickly with little to no exercise. While this would be a great solution, it often doesn’t follow
This intermittent fasting protocol was developed by Dr. James Johnson. The idea is that food is consumed every other day. That is, eating your fill on Monday, fasting on Tuesday, eating your fill on Wednesday, fasting on Thursday, etc.
Everyday it is possible to open up an issue of “Men’s Fitness” or “Muscle and Fitness” or “Modern Woman” or “TIME” or any magazine for that matter, and find the “new and/or improved” way to lose weight, improve the quality of life, or extend your years working towards the other two goals. Almost all of the methods prescribed can work; some are exercise and some are diet. For the most part though, achieving diet or exercise goals requires one to have great discipline. It has been proven, by each of these diet deveopers, that the diets they prescribe will work if the individual will just manage his caloric intake.
Accounts of fasting can be traced back thousands of years. The primary purpose of fasting in those days was to flee from the distraction of eating, to give your full attention to something else, often through the form of prayer. However, fasting is becoming increasingly popular in a different kind of way. Today many scientists and doctors are studying fasting as a type of healing process, not just mentally, but also physically. These beneficial effects have been seen in the treatment of weight loss, mental health, cancer, skin disease, and a host of other ailments. While fasting may not be safe for a select few, the possibility of life changing benefits warrants everyone’s consideration.
According to the World Health Organization, “Nutrition is the intake of food, considered in relation to the body’s dietary needs. Good nutrition – an adequate, well balanced diet combined with regular physical activity – is a cornerstone of good health. Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity. (World Health Organization, 2012) ”
It is unfortunate, that the “bandwagon dieter” will seek different medical procedures that are performed by unskilled and unqualified doctors in and out of the United States to have their dream body. By utilizing these types of procedures the dieter will go to the extreme to get their dream body, but being blinded by the result, this dieter doesn’t follow all research in thoroughly investigating all medical procedures and/or doctors. The “bandwagon dieter” doesn’t always do the proper research; this dieter will endanger their health. The “bandwagon dieter” is always listening out for the next miracle drug for weight loss. However, attending a class reunion or purchasing new clothes can be a dieter’s incentive to lose weight, making a decision to lose weight because of an event are very hard to keep, and the “promise dieter” attempts to lose weight will result in failure. The “promise dieter” always starts their diet on a Monday, that is always the promise and then the “promise dieter” mistakenly eats something not healthy or not on their diet list and then all bets are off. The “promise dieter” is always willing to start their diet over again. But, before the “promise dieter” is ready to start their new diet they eat anything and everything before they start, on their new diet. The “promise dieter” has several attempts of trying to lose weight, unfortunately they are unsuccessful. No one is fooled by the
A major part of Intermittent Fasting is eating. Yes, that sounds self-explanatory, doesn’t it? Let me explain. Eat- ing is very important in our day-to-day lives and we must consider what we consume very carefully. With Inter- mittent Fasting, you can consume higher calorie foods like that six-dollar burger from Carl’s Jr or that pasta from Olive Garden without worrying too much about excessive fat gain, but you do have to ensure that your body gets its proper nutrients.
One topic that has been talked about for many years within Kinesiology is the debate on whether exercise or diet is more important for losing weight and maintaining weight loss. While both or important for a person's individual health, a person's diet is essentially the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and an important factor in losing weight and gaining nutrients that can help the body develop. Many studies and experiments have shown that a healthy diet goes a long way in helping people lose more weight, but more importantly teaches them how to continue to treat their bodies in a healthy manner. Dieting has been shown to have a bigger impact on weight loss than exercise has. For this reason, it can be said that a good diet is more effective for weight loss as compared to exercise alone.
