Weight Loss: A Side-Effect Of A Healthy Lifestyle

  1. 1. Chapter 13 Weight Loss: A Healthy Lifestyle Side Effect
  2. 2. <ul><li>I’ve been on a constant diet for the last two decades. I’ve lost a total of 789 pounds. By all accounts, I should be hanging from a charm bracelet. </li></ul><ul><li> Erma Bombeck (1927–1996) </li></ul>
  3. 4. Lifestyle Programs <ul><li>Each of these studies used nutrition and exercise programs to lower health risks such as blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Diabetes Prevention Program </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dean Ornish Heart Disease Reversing Program </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coronary Health Improvement Program </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet </li></ul></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>They all reduced risks, but all the participants also lost weight. </li></ul><ul><li>(Weight loss is a healthy </li></ul><ul><li>lifestyle side effect) </li></ul>
  5. 6. Our Culture Of Consumption <ul><li>Excessive weight is a problem of the Westernized world. </li></ul><ul><li>Lifestyle trials designed to lower health risks all produced weight loss. </li></ul><ul><li>We live in a world that encourages over consumption and discourages physical activity. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>Kelly Brownell of Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders labels our unhealthy culture a </li></ul><ul><li>“ toxic environment” </li></ul>
  7. 8. Our Culture Of Consumption <ul><li>On a percentage basis, dietary fat consumption has decreased from 45-32% since 1970. </li></ul><ul><li>But, on a calorie basis, we eat MORE fat. </li></ul><ul><li>Cheese consumption increased from 11 to 28 lbs/person/year. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Our Culture Of Consumption <ul><li>27% of meals are eaten outside the home. </li></ul><ul><li>Food portion sizes have increased. </li></ul><ul><li>Soda consumption increased from 34.7 to 44.4 gallons/person/year since 1987. </li></ul><ul><li>Aggressive marketing </li></ul><ul><li>Vending machines </li></ul><ul><li>Channel one </li></ul>
  9. 10. The Number of Larger-Size Portions Introduced by Fast Food Chains and Restaurants
  10. 11. <ul><li>Can genetics explain the increase in body weight? </li></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>The increase in obesity in the United States has occurred in just two or three decades, with very little change in the genetic makeup of the U.S. population. </li></ul><ul><li>Such a dramatic increase cannot be due to genetics because the genetic pool of the entire population cannot change in 20 years. </li></ul>
  12. 13. On a Diet, Off a Diet <ul><li>All diets have two things in common: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A reduction in the number of calories that are eaten and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A lot of media hype </li></ul></ul><ul><li>When you go off the diet, the weight returns. </li></ul>
  13. 14. The solid line shows the typical results of weight-loss program participants in pounds. The dotted line would be ideal—lose weight and keep it off for years.
  14. 15. On a Diet, Off a Diet <ul><li>When it all boils down, weight loss is nothing more than balancing energy from food with energy expended by the body. </li></ul><ul><li>Weight Change = </li></ul><ul><ul><li>calories in – calories out </li></ul></ul>
  15. 16. Most Common Weight Loss Methods
  16. 17. Effects of Diet, Exercise, and Exercise/Diet Combined
  17. 18. Weight Loss Masters <ul><li>A group of people who lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for at least 5 years. </li></ul>
  18. 19. Tips For Long-Term Success: <ul><li>Eat fewer calories. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This can be accomplished by reducing the amount of food you eat and eating foods that are more likely to promote good health. Most of the masters switched to low-fat foods and ate less sugar and sweets and more fruits and vegetables. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Exercise every day. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Most exercised for an hour a day. If you really want to keep the weight off, you will have to make exercise part of your everyday life. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Weigh yourself every week. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Set a weight limit and don’t exceed that limit. </li></ul></ul>
  19. 20. Tips For Long-Term Success: <ul><li>Cultivate social support. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Friends, family, and even pets can provide emotional support and encouragement to start and stick with an active, healthy lifestyle. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Commit to doing it. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Make a decision to change your lifestyle. If you have a good reason to change (a trigger), use it to focus your efforts and solidify your determination. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Find your approach. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Everybody has a slightly different approach. Even though there were some common characteristics among many of the weight-control masters, others did it their own way. One size does not fit all when it comes to successful weight loss. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 21. <ul><li>How much should you weigh? </li></ul>

  22. 23. Body Mass Index (BMI) What is your body mass index? ________ Body Mass Index Categories <19 Underweight 19–24 Ideal weight, low-risk 25–29 Overweight, moderate-risk ≥ 30 Obese, high-risk
  23. 24. The Life Long Weight Loss Solution <ul><li>Eat fewer calories-eat on the defensive </li></ul><ul><li>Exercise every day </li></ul><ul><li>Weigh yourself often </li></ul><ul><li>Cultivate social support </li></ul><ul><li>Commit to doing it, get a trigger </li></ul><ul><li>Slow and steady wins the race </li></ul><ul><li>Healthy emotional state before healthy body weight </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t buy bigger clothes </li></ul>
  24. 25. Weight Loss Benefits of Exercise <ul><li>Maintain lean body mass, maintain and increase metabolism. </li></ul><ul><li>Lose body fat. </li></ul><ul><li>Lose total weight. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce other health risks. </li></ul>
  25. 26. More Weight Loss Tips <ul><li>Slow and Steady Wins the Race </li></ul>
  26. 27. More Weight Loss Tips <ul><li>Reduce total calories from food by 500–1,000 calories to lose 1–2 pounds per week. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce dietary fat intake to less than 30% of your total energy intake. </li></ul>
  27. 28. More Weight Loss Tips <ul><li>Healthy Emotional State before Healthy Body Weight </li></ul><ul><li>Weigh Yourself Often </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t Buy Bigger Clothes </li></ul><ul><li>Know Your Hunger Triggers (times or events that make you want to eat) </li></ul>
  28. 29. Eat on the Defensive <ul><li>Do nothing else while eating; just enjoy your food. If you habitually watch TV while you eat, you might be tempted to eat each time you turn on the TV. </li></ul><ul><li>Stop eating when you are full. When you eat out, you don’t have to try to get your money’s worth just because you are eating out. Take some home in a doggy bag. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t eat everything on your plate (even though your mother told you to). The last thing most of us need is to load a plate with food and eat everything on it. </li></ul>
  29. 30. Eat on the Defensive <ul><li>When eating out, chose smaller portions or share your meal with someone. A couple of appetizers are just about as much food as an entrée. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t bring problem foods home. Out of sight, out of mind. </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t have to have dessert at every meal. If you do need a dessert, have a small serving or some fruit. </li></ul><ul><li>When you are done eating dinner, remove the serving dishes from the table so you aren’t tempted to keep eating. </li></ul>
  30. 31. Set a Weight Loss Goal <ul><li>Use the BMI table or actual measures of your body fat to set a reasonable, attainable goal. Something you can attain in just a few months. </li></ul><ul><li>Plan on no more than 2-3 pounds per week. </li></ul>
  31. 32. The Culprit & The Cure <ul><li>This book gives you the skills, ideas, and practical know-how to adopt healthy lifestyles and maintain them for life. </li></ul><ul><li>www.welcoa.org </li></ul>
  32. 33. Points to Remember <ul><li>Weight loss and healthy weight maintenance are side effects of a healthy lifestyle. Adopt a healthy lifestyle and you will be more likely to have a healthy weight. </li></ul><ul><li>American culture and aggressive food marketing make attaining a healthy weight hard to do. You must control the size of your food portions and the amount of food you eat. Don’t leave this job to the food industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Good nutrition and physical activity behaviors are the keys to healthy weight. Stop the healthy behaviors and your weight will return to prior levels. </li></ul>
  33. 34. More Points to Remember <ul><li>Learn wisdom from the wise; live like the weight control masters. </li></ul><ul><li>Low-carbohydrate diets, as well as other kinds of diets, can help you reduce the number of calories you eat, but don’t go on a diet just to later go off a diet. Change your lifestyle. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognize the triggers that make you want to eat and plan ways to deal with those triggers. </li></ul>
