Did you know that when you lose weight, you are not just losing excess fat from your body, but muscular tissue too? There has been lots of research into this field and science has actually proved that what we get rid of is 75% of fat and 25% of muscle tissue. Another interesting fact is that we also lose A LOT of water during weight loss.
Water comprises over 75% of our body weights and also makes up a large part of fats and the substance in our muscles. Throughout the day, your body works like a machine that burns up calories. When you are climbing up and down the stairs, walking, lifting or even typing and just about just about anything that involves movement, you are shedding calories.
As long as your calorie intake is sufficient for the energy you need to stay fit and healthy, everything will be fine. But when you consume more calories than what your body needs, you don’t burn it all up. It gets accumulated around your waist, buttocks, thighs and neck as ugly fat.
As soon as you notice fat build up, work on it. If you leave things the way they are for longer than is safe, you’ll have a hard time shedding it all later. You have to strike a balance of correct diet and exercise. It is a combination of the two things that really makes a difference. Go on a high fiber diet and stick to it. Take at least eight to ten glasses of water each day. Your system will stay clean and clear of fats and toxins.
