• walking
• cycling
• gardening
• swimming
• dancing
• playing a sport, such as badminton, football or bowls
• stretching exercise, e.g. yoga
• Before going to the gym, consider medical advice before beginning physical activity.

Tips for increasing physical activity

  • Use a bicycle or walk part, if not all, of your journey to work whenever possible.
  • Try to park further away from your place.
  • Consider workout at work before or after work or at lunch break.
  • Go for a walk with a friend or family member

Weight loss tip 4 - stop blaming the victim for weight gain

Although most people jump to easy conclusions and intentionally or unintentionally blame the victim, it is often not intentional on the part of the person gaining weight.

What went wrong with our diet?

Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.

Why the food pyramid failed?

The now withdrawn and failed food guide pyramid was a disaster as it advocated a low fat, but glycemic diet that leads to increased risk of insulin resistance which in turn causes weight gain.

Metabolic starvation in the obese

Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!

Weight loss tip 5 - Understand the role of Very low calorie diet

No matter what the program is called and where in the world the weight loss program is located, almost all weight loss programs have to have either a very low calorie diet or low calorie diet to help with weight loss.

Weight loss tip 6 - Set a realistic weight loss goal

Setting a weight loss goal keeps you focussed and motivated. However, do not set too large a weight loss goal - start with a goal of about 10-20 percent of your current body weight.

Weight loss tip 7 - Understand the role of medications

Consult with a trained and experienced weight loss physician that can determine if one or more of the various weight loss pills such as Qsymia, Belviw, Phentermine, Phendimetrazine might be appropriate for you.

Weight loss medications

In 2012, the FDA approved two new weight loss medications Qsymia and Belviq after years of rejecting many other weight loss medications. There are other traditional and time tested weight loss medications such as Phentermine, Phendimetrazine etc.

Weight loss tip 9 - Start the day right

Starting the day right with a protein based breakfast will reduce the commonly seen sugar rush and crash associated with starchy breakfast items, and as protein lasts longer, you feel fuller for longer. Starting the day with eggs in various forms can be a great way to start the day - the cholesterol in the eggs is not a major concern as eggs have beneficial lecithin that can mitigate the effects of cholesterol. If you are still concerned, you can eliminate the yellow portion of the egg and just have the protein by having the egg whites.

Weight loss tip 10 - never eat until full, only until satisfied

Eating a larger portion can expand the stomach and lead to overeating in the long run. In fact, most obese people skip a lot of meals but eat one or two very large meals.

Weight loss tip 11 - check glycemic index of all foods

Keeping an eye on the glycemic index of foods has the hugely important benefit of reducing insulin resistance and unhealthy weight gain.

Weight loss tip 12 - take a break in the meal

If eat only half the meal and take a break, and say, I will come back to it, it reduces the chances of overeating.

Weight loss tip 13 - Keep on eye on the portions

Studies have shown that bigger plates and portions leads to more calorie intake.

Weight loss tip 14 - Do not eat before going to bed

Aim for about 4 hours from the time of eating to the time of sleep.

Weight loss tip 15 - Limit cereal grains in the diet

Humans have evolved as hunters and gatherers and therefore, do not have enough genetic adaptation for using the nutritionally poor cereal grains which can also lead to autoimmune diseases.

Weight loss tip 16 - Reduce eating out

We tend to consume up to 40 percent more calories while eating out compared to eating home meals.

Weight loss tip 17 - Watch alcohol intake

At 7 calories per gram, alcohol is as loaded in calories as fat and is considered empty calories.

Weight loss tip 18 - Sleep better

Recent research shows that sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, and circadian rhythm problems, shift work, inadequate sleep, and irregular sleep wake cycle can lead to excess weight gain.
