Ruling Out Hidden Health Issues Before Dieting
Before going on any plan it just makes good sense to visit with your doctor. At the time of the visit request the following tests: diabetes, thyroid and cholesterol. Be sure the doctor or his assistant take a blood pressure reading.
Diabetes & Dieting
Diabetes testing is vital before going on a restricted diet plan as the results will impact your daily diet. If heaven-forbid the test is positive, you will be placed on a specialized weight loss plan by your doctor. Sugar will either be eliminated or severely restricted in the daily diet, and fat will be limited. Both are significant contributors to weight gain as both are extreme in calories and offer minimal nutritional values. Keep in mind that fat is essential for good health but minimal is key.
A common misconception regarding diabetics and sugar is that sugar is the direct cause for the disease. In layman's terms, the diabetic has a broken pancreas. All foods transform to sugar as they are processed - but because sugar is sugar, the concentration levels exceed the body's capabilities making sugar an undesirable food for the diabetic.
If the diabetic test is negative, losing weight will significantly decrease your risks for getting diabetes.
Thyroid Imbalances, Metabolic Disturbances Can Cause Weight Gain
The thyroid test will assure that nothing is out of order - that your metabolism is working well and not a factor triggering your weight gain.
As to cholesterol testing, revisit your doctor a few months into your weight loss plan and request a second test to see how your diet has impacted your cholesterol reading. The body is ever-changing, so about every 30 days the chemical composites are different than previous readings.
A healthier cholesterol reading contributes to a healthier heart and circulatory system. And with less weight on your body to carry around, you'll not only experience an improved appearance - you'll also feel better and have more energy.
Losing Excess Body Fat Can Produce a Body With More Energy
Think about this...
- If you are 20 pounds over your recommended weight, if you can lift a 20 pound bag of potatoes do such and think about having to carry it around with you continually.
- If you are 40 pounds over recommended weight, what would it feel like to carry two 20 pound bags of potatoes around continually?
- If you are 50 pounds overweight, if you can lift a 50 pound bag of birdseed or sunflower seed - the amount of weight lifted will give you an ideal of how much weight you're carrying around on your body skeletal frame, a frame that was originally designed to carry x-amount of weight.
- If you are 75 pound overweight, that's like lifting 4 twenty pound bags of potatoes.
- And if you are 100 or more pounds overweight, it's like carrying two 50 pound bags of seed.
The Toll Excess Pounds Takes on the Body: Skeletal System, Vital Organs
Because the body skeletal frame distributes the excess weight so that it can be balanced, it is less noticeable than if the individual were to actually pick up the same amount of weight and haul it around with them. Even so, the weight is there and it takes energy and effort to haul it around, placing a strain on the body's skeletal frame as well as the vital organs.
