Weight Loss Management: Some Vital Questions

Focus on weight loss management. Why? Because only fat loss, weight loss or eating salads would not help. Look at weight loss management in a broader perspective.

Weight Management

Weight Loss Management #1: Why are we asked to drink “more” water daily?

You need to drink that much water as your bodyweight needs. Meaning, for every 20 kg/44-45 lbs of bodyweight, you must drink 1 liter water. This being said, you must now know why you are asked to drink “more” water daily.

  • Makes up 75% of muscle
  • Helps your body absorb nutrients
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Composes 75% of brain
  • Makes up 83% of your blood
  • Composes 20% of your bones
  • Removes waste
  • Carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells
  • Moistens oxygen for breathing
  • Convert food into energy
  • Protects and cushions vital body organs

If you drink water much more than what your body require, potassium and sodium would flush out from your body. Never let this situation arise.

Let me explain this with an example. Suppose your bodyweight is 80 kg; accordingly, you need to drink 4 liter of water daily. Now, instead of 4 liter a day, you end up drinking 5.5 liter a day. This is very harmful. The range of water intake for you on daily basis should be 3.2 liter to 4 liter.

Weight Loss Management #2: Why people say drinking water early morning on empty stomach is very beneficial?

Indeed it is true. As soon as you wake up, you must drink at least 2 glasses of water, but don’t gulp it down. Take it slow.

Drinking water early morning on empty stomach,

  • Increases the production of new blood and muscle cells
  • Balances the Lymphatic System – the system that helps you perform your daily function, balances your body fluids and fights infections
  • Washes away toxins from blood, making your skin glow and clear
  • Boosts metabolism by 24%, thereby aiding in weight loss
  • Purifies colon

Weight Loss Management #3: What happens after fat loss?

Fat loss help in resolving/reducing many risky diseases/disorders, though you need to consult your physician before you stop taking any drug.

  • 57% migraine resolves
  • 55% depression resolves
  • 74-98% obstructive sleep apnea resolves
  • 82% asthma improves
  • 82% cardiovascular problem reduces
  • 52-92% hypertension resolves
  • 72-98% GERD resolves
  • 95% venous stasis disease resolves
  • 83% type II diabetes resolves
  • 80% metabolic syndrome resolves
  • 44-88% stress urinary inconsistence resolves
  • 41-76% degenerative joint disease resolves
  • 77% gout resolves
  • 96% pseudotumor cerebri resolves
  • 81% ovarian syndrome resolves
  • 83% non-alcoholic fatty liver disease resolves
  • 89% reduction in 5-year mortality
  • 95% improvement in the quality of life

Fat Loss

Weight Loss Management #4: What about male fat storage and the reasons behind it?

Male fat storage:

  • Armpits – thyroid problems
  • Back – high insulin (not tolerating carbs)
  • Chest – high estrogen
  • Triceps – high estrogen and/or low DHEA* (Dehydroepiandrosterone)
  • Love handles – insulin & blood sugar imbalance (not tolerating carbs and/or alcohol)
  • Abs/belly – high cortisol, low testosterone, low growth hormone, high estrogen
  • Hips/butts/hamstrings – high estrogen
  • Thighs – low growth hormone
  • Calf/knee – low growth hormone

In males, testosterone and DHEA are produced in the reproductive glands that are responsible for facial hair and sex drive.

Production of estrogen (in less quantity than females) effects sperm count.

Weight Loss Management $5: What about female fat storage and the reasons behind it?

Female fat storage:

  • Armpits – thyroid problems
  • Back – high insulin (not tolerating carbs), high testosterone
  • Chest – high estrogen
  • Muffin top – insulin blood sugar imbalance (cannot tolerate carbs and/or alcohol)
  • Triceps – high insulin and/or low DHEA*)
  • Abs/belly – imbalance in estrogen/testosterone, high insulin, low growth hormone, high level of cortisol
  • Booty/hips – high estrogen, low progesterone
  • Thighs – low growth hormone
  • Calf/knee – low growth hormone

In females, testosterone is produced by the adrenal glands, not producing enough DHEA.

Estrogen, the female sex hormones, is produced in the ovaries, by fat cells and adrenal glands. Increasing during puberty and pregnancy, estrogen regulates the menstrual cycle.

Weight Loss Management $6: What is DHEA? How can it be increased?

DHEA is “Dehydroepiandrosterone”, the building block of very important hormones in our body.

There are 5 ways to increase DHEA that would aid in fat loss:

  • Detoxifying the liver – at least once a week
  • Increasing testosterone – lifting heavy weights and eating proteins
  • Controlling insulin – proper nutrition, well-balanced diet
  • Avoiding sugar and flour – at any cost
  • Managing stress – meditate, walk, 6-8 hour sleep

Weight Loss Management #7: What is Insulin Trap? How to escape it?

Insulin Trap

It is a situation where there is a rapid rise and fall of your blood sugar level that finally leads to hypoglycemia. When the glucose vanishes in say, 4 hours but the insulin stays say for 8 hours, this 4 hour gap is when your brain tells you that you are starving—may be you are actually not hungry. Because of hypoglycemia, you fill yourself with food. Then just imagine the extra calories you have consumed, and it is just because you are in Insulin Trap. This trap literally forces you to eat more than required – a hormonal response. As a result, you start gaining solid weight.

For escaping the Insulin Trap, you need to simply switch to vegetables that are not roots, avoid fruits like pineapples, bananas, and eat fats that would give you fullness.

Remember: Weight Loss Management = 80% nutritious & well-balanced diet and lifestyle + 20% exercise. It is not the other way round.
