How do people become fat?

How do people become fat

Gaining weight is in fact an adaptive feature of the human body, going back many thousands of years, to a time when there was scarcity of food. In an effort to prevent starvation, the body learned how to store excess calories as fat, and burn them off, whenever food scarcity came about. While this was very effective in times gone by, in today’s affluent society, it spells disaster.

What is actually more troubling than weight gain, is the difficulty which is involved in losing weight. Since the body has also developed an adaptation, which results in the metabolism going into a slow mode, if calories are suddenly cut, this feature helps in time of food scarcity, such as famine. Sadly, for the frustrated dieter, it means that whenever they attempt a crash diet, the weight losses quickly comes to a stop.

And worse still, once the metabolism slows down, it stays down permanently. This results in a spiral of ever decreasing circles, as the metabolism becomes slower and slower with each new crash diet, until eventually, the dieter gives up completely, on their weight loss efforts.

The only effective way to burn the fat and keep it off, involves an understanding of the body’s metabolic rate. The basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the level of calories required in order to maintain weight. In order to lose weight, it is evidently necessary to lower calories, below the BMR. However, in order to prevent the metabolism from going into “starvation mode“, it is important to only reduce the calories by a small amount.

A small calorific decrease a few hundred calories below the BMR, and will surely result in good weight loss in the long-term. Many people want to diet fast, and yet they do not realise that it is far better to lose 2lb. per week and keep it off, rather than to lose 5lb., which is mainly water anyway, and then to regain the weight within a few weeks.

How to run a marathon

running a marathon

Are you in the process of preparing yourself for an upcoming marathon? Or just wish to know about how to prepare yourself for a marathon,  then guess you may like to read my post below… I got this idea of creating this post from one of my close friend who I have seen participating in marathons… I have seen him getting stressed out, frustrated, motivated and just every emotion while he was on his marathon training program…

To run a marathon successfully, one should be well trained and most importantly should have the willpower to finish it.

Here I am sharing few tips on how to run a marathon to win…

Commitment

If you have not been through your marathon training program seriously, it will reflect on your result. So it’s better to be fully committed to your training program, with all your energy and time. Basically, Commitment is the key!

Follow a healthy regime

It is crucial for you to be fit on your marathon day. So, when training for it, don’t over-stress, just concentrate on your goal by taking healthy diet and proper rest. If you have any work related or any issue in your personal life try to ease it out before you finally run your marathon. Or it might effect your performance.

Practise

In your training sessions, assume that you are running a marathon with all your running gears. This way, you will even be able to rule out any issues in your running gear before the real race happens.

Secondly, you can also practise for your upcoming marathon with real runners in the field itself. When you run the actual marathon, there will be many people competing with you to win. You need to get a feel of the less space you are going to get on an actual day in advance so that on the big day you don’t feel crowded.
