There is nothing as wonderful as having a good looking body physique. This is because it will make you get noticed by the opposite sex. If you are a woman, having a beautiful figure will make you get noticed by the guys and if you are a gut having a muscular well toned body will make you a looker among women.
If you are overweight however you tend to be ignored by the opposite sex. It does not matter how great your personality is, if you do not have a good looking body physique no one will take notice of you. When you tend to be ignored by the opposite sex, this leads to a very low self esteem. You end up losing a lot of confidence in yourself and this makes it very difficult to progress in other areas of your life. Having a low self confidence not only affects your relationship with others but it also affects how you perceive things and life in general.
If you want to claim back your confidence level then you need to start by losing weight if you are overweight. When you properly work on improving your body physique then your confidence level will increase. You feel good about yourself when you look great.
I need to caution you however that when losing weight you need to stay away from steroid drugs. The reason is because steroids will lead to very many side effects albeit the fact that they will make you lose weight fast. Some of the side effects of taking steroid include; enlargement of the clitoris, irregularity of the menstrual cycle, growth of facial hair in women, shrinking of testicles in men, low sperm count, decrease in libido, baldness, kidney problems, liver conditions, heart ailments, insomnia, increase in aggression, and depression.
If you want to lose weight you should also stay away from fad diets. The reason why I am cautioning you from using fad diets is because they end up making you lose your body composition. When you use fad diets the body will go into starvation mode. When the body is in starvation mode it will start burning muscles instead of fat and this affects the percentage of fat to muscle ratio. Your muscles get depleted in the process and your rate of metabolism decreases. When your metabolism decreases you will not be able to burn a lot of calories and therefore you will end up gaining weight.
If you want to lose weight you need to perform the three tasks below;
1. Weight Train
The reason why you need to weight train is so that you can increase the number of lean body muscles. This will in turn lead to the increase in your body metabolism which will make your body burn more calories and in the process you will lose weight.
2. Aerobic Exercises
Aerobic exercises also lead to the increase in metabolism which in turn leads to the burning of more calories.
3. Watch Your Calories
You need to watch the amount of calories you take in each meal because they will determine whether or not you will be able to lose weight.
