Weight loss is the reduction of body weight, usually resulting from increased activity, diet, or a combination of these elements. Excess weight, when it occurs in large amounts, often interferes with normal activities of the human body. It can result in an increased risk for diseases such as cancer and heart disease, and can even lead to death. Although most cases of rapid weight loss are the result of an unhealthy lifestyle and lack of exercise, weight loss can occur quite rapidly in some people.
The human stomach contains both a volume of fluid and chemicals that are important in weight management. Because the stomach stores fat reserves during the day and uses them when food is taken into the body, weight loss in this area can be rapid. This is mainly the case in people who consume a lot of calories and have a high level of physical activity. In most cases, rapid weight loss in this area is the result of increased gastric emptying, a condition where food is absorbed more quickly from the stomach into the bloodstream. As food moves into the bloodstream, it provides energy to the muscles and the entire body.
Gastric emptying is an absolute requirement for rapid weight loss. A person cannot stop eating or reduce intake of calories without losing weight; therefore, an appropriate number of calories and physical activities must always be carried out by a person suffering from a weight loss eating disorder. Rapid weight loss can only be achieved by proper dieting and a change in lifestyle.
Because gastric emptying is the body’s natural mechanism for weight loss, people who resort to extreme dieting and/or severe exercise regimes may fail to reach their weight loss goals. These individuals must first meet with their physician and determine the cause of their weight loss. The physician may recommend an appropriate dieting plan and ask the patient to participate in exercise regimes that are appropriate for his or her current health status. It may be necessary for such patients to undergo thorough medical screening and to undergo psychological counseling in order to treat their eating disorders. Once it has been determined that the patient needs professional assistance, he or she should search for a dieting program that meets his or her needs. This will be the first step toward effective weight loss management.
Weight loss advice should be obtained from people whom the patient respects and whose opinions are trustworthy. This includes his or her friends and family members. People who have successfully lost weight and kept it off will usually be willing to share tips and suggestions with those who are trying to lose weight or maintain their current weight. People who suffer from a weight loss eating disorder should also seek the advice of people who have successfully lost weight. This will help them identify dieting tips that work and identify the right dieting regimen for them.
A healthy dieting regimen will allow the individual to eat smaller portions and eat more often. This will ensure that the unintentional calorie intake is decreased and the unintentional calorie loss is reduced as well. An interesting fact about intentional over-nutrition is that it does not cause overweight or obesity in most cases. All it does is lead to a weight loss that is temporary. Overweight and obese individuals can still eat large amounts of food without putting on any body fat.
