The first thing you should consider is why do you want to lose weight ? and how much ? But do you really need to lose weight? Are you putting your health in danger — or just carrying around a little harmless extra padding?


So firstly you should measure yourself in the criteria of weight and height and then calculate your BMI.The standard answer is that you’re overweight if your body mass index (BMI) is 25 or higher and obese if your BMI is 30 or higher.

Second thing you should look at: What is your health profile? If your cholesterol and blood pressure levels are high and your BMI falls into the overweight or obese category, it’s important to lose weight. If your BMI is in the high end of healthy or in the low overweight range, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor about whether weight loss is right for you.

Ways to lose weight-

  1. Weight loss surgery- ALSO KNOWN AS BARIATRIC SURGERY

In general, weight-loss surgery is appropriate for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, as well as for those with a BMI of 35 to 39.9

and a severe, treatment-resistant medical condition such as diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea.

Although weight-loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, should be considered a last resort when diet and exercise don’t work, it can do some amazing things. Among people who are severely overweight, it can yield a 25% to 35% weight loss within two years. In many people who undergo the surgery, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and the

disruptive and potentially harmful snoring pattern known as sleep apnea disappear. It can also improve a number of other health problems, ranging from arthritis and heartburn to infertility and incontinence.

  1. Non surgical way to lose weight-

Endoscopic weight loss procedures are a promising new option for people who want help losing weight but don’t want — or may not qualify for — bariatric surgery. Endoscopic weight loss procedures achieve better weight loss than

medication but not as much as bariatric surgery. Because they are newer procedures.

Gastric Balloon-

The gastric balloon may be an option for adults whose BMI is between 30 and 40. First, the doctor gives you a mild sedative. Then, using an endoscope passed through your mouth, the doctor will insert a soft, durable balloon in your stomach and fill the balloon with a saline solution. This takes up space in your stomach, reducing the amount of food and drink you can fit and making you feel full longer. The procedure is quick, and you go home hours later.

Gastric balloon is a temporary procedure; the balloon is removed after six months.

Rapid weight loss is typically experienced during the first four months following placement of the balloon. People who participated in a clinical trial of the gastric balloon had lost, on average, about 25% to 29% of their body in 12 months.

Natural habits to lose weight-

Best healthy diets with exercise-

A healthy diet favors natural, unprocessed foods over pre-packaged meals and snacks. It is balanced, meaning that it provides your body with all the nutrients and minerals it needs to function best. It emphasizes plant-based foods—especially fruits and vegetables—over animal foods. It contains plenty of protein. It is low in sugar and salt. It incorporates “healthy fats” including fish, olive oil and other plant-derived oils.

A healthy Mediterranean diet gets its name from the foods available to various cultures located around the Mediterranean Sea. It heavily emphasizes minimally processed fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and whole grains. It contains moderate amounts of yogurt, cheese, poultry and fish. Olive oil is its primary cooking fat.

Red meat and foods with added sugars are only eaten sparingly. Besides being an effective weight loss method, eating a Mediterranean style diet is linked to a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, depression and some forms of cancer.

Experts developed the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) specifically as a heart-healthy regimen. The combination of food types contained in the diet seem to work together especially effectively to lower blood pressure and decrease risk of heart failure. The key features of DASH are low cholesterol and saturated fats, lots of magnesium, calcium, fiber and potassium, and little to no red meat and sugar. Unsurprisingly, that equates to a list of foods similar to those of the Mediterranean diet—whole grains, vegetables, fruits, fish, poultry, nuts and olive oi

Intermittent fasting means dividing one’s time between “eating windows” and periods of abstention on a regular basis. A common intermittent fasting schedule might restrict eating to the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with the remaining 16 hours of the day spent fasting. But there is no specific, prescribed schedule. Some people have more or less generous eating windows, setting the rule that they will not eat after, say, 8:00 p.m.—or, on the considerably less generous side, only allowing themselves to eat every other day.

It sounds counterintuitive, but many people find success losing weight—especially initially—by eating more fat, not less. Called a ketogenic or Keto diet, this method requires shifting the main source of calories over to fatty foods—between 75% and 90% of what you eat, with only 10-20% of your calories coming from protein and a mere 5% from carbohydrates. The theory is that by eating so many healthy fats and restricting carbohydrates, you enter an altered metabolic state in which you force your body to begin relying on fat for energy, burning away your fat stores instead of sugar for fuel.

Why exercise with a diet?

The interaction between diet and exercise may have significant implications for health outcomes, including a reduced risk of cardiovascular and cancer diseases . They improve mental health and well-being as well as maintaining physical function and independence at an older age . and also lose several

inches of body.


Either left or right it’s up to you.

If you are really facing the problems of being overweight and obese with a severe disease, it’s time to act on it . lose weight for a healthy lifestyle and to live happily. These different weight loss methods will make a huge impact

on your weight loss journey. Because at the end

Health is real wealth !
