Why It Doesn’t Make Sense to Lose Weight with Someone Else’s Plan
From reality TV shows like “The Biggest Loser”, to endless options on the internet for “fast weight loss”, it seems like our high-tech media are happy to indulge our infatuation with body weight and how to lose it.
And if you’ve had problems managing your weight, you’ve probably had no end of advice – mostly uninvited – about how to slim down.
As well-intentioned as any weight loss advice might be, it is not likely to be your best option.
Yes, a reputable diet and a lot of what you see on TV might help you lose weight, but that doesn’t mean that it’s ideal for you, your body and your lifestyle.
Everyone is Different
Unfortunately, most people think of losing weight as just getting rid of unwanted pounds. But that change it your weight represents a significant change for your body. Just like we all have different looks, thoughts and emotions, how your body responds to weight loss will be different from how anyone else’s body responds.
Your body’s reaction to a weight loss diet or program depends on a number of factors, including:
- Age – As you get older you are less active and you need fewer calories. That means a diet that severely reduces calories will affect you differently now than when you were younger.
- Sex – Sorry ladies, but muscle burns calories at a higher rate and men’s bodies generally have more muscle. So exercise regimens should be different for men versus women.
- Nutritional Requirements – depending on lifestyle, stress and genetics, everyone’s body needs different levels of nutrition, which means your body can react differently to low-carb or high-protein diets.
You Need Your Own Weight Loss Program
The healthiest and best way for you to lose weight is with a program custom-designed for your body type, weight loss goals and lifestyle.
You may have noticed the disclaimer at the end of every episode of “The Biggest Loser” that says in part:
“…their (contestants’) diet and exercise regimen was tailored to their medical status and their specific needs.”
So even the “Biggest Loser” got there with a customized weight loss plan.
