Many experts agreed on the fact that the people from the States should stop dieting. The problem with the people, according to the experts is the fact that they obsess over it. The people measure everything they eat; they weigh themselves 5 or even more times daily, they measure themselves numerous times each day, and so on. This can be considered the beginning of an obsession. They said that these people who are worried about what they eat more than anything, have allowed the task of getting thin to control their lives.
However many experts believe that the idea that Americans are obsessed by dieting is just fiction. The journalists have revealed the fact that more than $33 billions are spent each year in the United States on weight machines, diet books, and other trends which are related to the process of losing weight. Even so, many consider the sum to be unimportant because they believe that the amount of money which is spent on the books and equipment has nothing to do with losing weight. Sure, the people buy these things, but no one can tell if they use them afterwards or if they lose weight as a result of buying them.
They said that these machines and books are not the ones which make the people lose weight; the people themselves are the ones responsible for the weight loss. The commitment of the people is much more important than all the fad diets, and machines such as the Stairmaster. The reality is different, as the Americans simply do not want to diet. Just like in the case of the resolutions, they buy the machines and the books but they do not use them.
Losing weight is a battle which one must perform against his own person. The mind of the one who wants to lose weight is the most dangerous enemies. The most interesting fact is that in most of the cases, the food that one craves when he diets are not good for the body. Even if they would be harmful, the fact is that they do not have the nutrients and the other elements required by the body. The “Americans simply enjoy being fat, otherwise they would do something about it”, the experts believe.
It has been reported that the Americans eat more than ever. The women eat over 300 more calories each day then they did 30 years ago. The situation is starting to become worrying since two-thirds of Americans are overweight. Even in these conditions, not too many Americans are willing to make an effort in order to lose weight. Most of the people simply do not care about the way they look and about the consequences which such a body can bring in the long run. A poll revealed the fact that more than a quarter of Americans would not be willing to give anything up in order to lose weight, and it is precisely this mentality which makes them to get fatter.
Many of them are accustomed to getting everything fast, whether if it’s the food, or any other thing. Some of them are terrified about the process of having to give something up, especially when it comes to the food they consume. The best way of losing weight is through exercise and diet, however many of the people do not have the required willpower to do it. Most of the people share the opinion that not the diets are the ones which fail, but that the people are the ones who fail the diets, since they do not give them a chance from the beginning.
The most important and the best exercise which one could do is simply to go and exercise. Exercising has many benefits besides giving one the possibility of losing weight. The person who exercises will have an improved strength, will have a much better endurance. Their odds for developing cancer and other diseases will be reduced as well. One of the most important things regarding the physical exercises is the fact that they make the person who perform them feel much better about themselves, and in most of the cases this is related to the fact that the person gets slimmer and fitter as a result of performing the exercises.
The experts share the opinion that the type of exercise one performs is not extremely important. Some like to perform endurance exercises such as running for very long lengths, others like to perform anaerobic ones, such as sprinting, The most important thing for the people is to perform these exercises. Many people simply do not perform the exercises because they have the feeling that they have not yet found the perfect exercise. They simply ignore the fact that any exercise is beneficial for the body whether if it is running, walking, swimming, or anything else. Endorphins are released in the body even after only 20 minutes of exercising, and because of this, the doctors recommend each person to exercise at least half an our each day.11
