Have you tried to lose weight and can’t seem to reach your weight loss goals? Do you tend to diet as a short term fix when it comes to managing your weight?
We asked a professional weight loss personal trainer in Abu Dhabi for her tips and advice when it comes to weight loss, dieting and training.
“Quick fix” weight loss promises are unrealistic. The mechanism behind the fat loss is a complex and requires a time to reduce the size of the fat cell. “Magic” diet plans that guarantee prompt results are often based on dehydrating your body to the point where the weight scale has significant drop down.
Nevertheless, this achievement won’t last long, your body will regain this weight as fast as you start eating again.
The prime goal of weight management for my clients in Abu Dhabi is to change your lifestyle not the number on the scale. The weight adjustment shall appear after this change.
The main causes of an excessive weight gain are dietary, lifestyle and genetic factors.
Dis-balance between energy consumption and energy expenditure where the calories intake is higher than its required, poor diet quality, low physical activities, environment that promotes weight gain and contributes to overeating and sedentary lifestyle play the main role in global obesity escalation.
Additionally, genome-wide association studies elucidate the role of genetic factors.
A recent study found here concludes that children from overweight parents, in general, show less physical activity and high-fat food preferences as a result of family’s established lifestyle and food choices.
I accomplished my master’s degree for healthcare professionals and gained expertise in weight management and treating obesity at the University of South Wales, the UK.
During the final year of university, I’ve conducted research on determinants of weight gain in women of GCC countries.
This helped me to learn more about the phenomena of growing obesity in the region and underpin lifestyle, behavioural, social-environmental, and biological factors behind it.
Thus, learn the best wellness and weight loss strategies that are most suitable for the population in Middle East.
Diet is a part of the weight loss program. The best results are achieved by using the holistic approach.
The combination of lifestyle modification, physical activities and diet is the key to successful weight loss.
The behaviour modification aims to encourage people to change the obesogenic micro-environment around them, change eating pattern, exercising behaviours and other habits that might lead to weight gain or become an obstacle to lose weight.
Most of the therapies focus on acceptance own thoughts, problem-solving, self-monitoring, goal setting, stimulus control and relapse prevention.
Behavioural change theories are focused on changing problem behaviour and adopting a healthier lifestyle.
Theories are used during evaluation, planning and implementing stages. You can read an in-depth study about modifying behaviour patterns relating to dieting here.
It is very important to consider the intensity of the training for the best weight loss result in Abu Dhabi. The exercise intensity is a very argumentative area.
The low-intense training for an athlete can be highly intense for an obese person. Hence, for every person the individual training program is required.
The modern lifestyle is the main reason for obesity increase among children.
According to World Health Organization, children must dedicate at least 60 minutes of their time to vigorous or moderate-intense physical activity every day.
Any extra time that children dedicate to playing sports, active games or exercising in general will have positive effects.
Most of the activities for children should be aerobic, however, exercises that improve muscles strength should be performed at least three times a week (for example, as part of physical education class).
Parents in Abu Dhabi can help their children in achieving these goals. Additionally, parents need to look into ways of ensuring that children eat healthy, well balanced meals and reduce junk food intake.
Relapse weight gain has been linked to fat storage shifts and an increase in android fat distribution, hyperplasia, and active adipose tissue growth.
Therefore, initial weight gain and relapse weight gain has different outcomes on health.
Weight regain appears to be more harmful, leading to an increase in CVD risk factors, hypertension and metabolic syndrome developing, fluctuations in circulating levels of lipids and insulin.
I always advise my clients that weight loss is the start of a journey. The ultimate goal is maintaining a healthy weight and making sure that through regular exercise and eating well it becomes part of you – part of your lifestyle.
