WHAT IS OBESITY AND WHY IS IT CONVENIENT TO LOSE WEIGHT?Obesity is a condition whose principal characteristic is the excess of adipose tissue, in which the cells can increase in size as well as number and results in a decrease in the quality of life and health of the individual who suffers from it.
Obesity is inherited and also acquired by erroneous conduct of eating and lifestyle.
The environment has great influence over the habits and attitudes that are acquired through eating. A person with inherited tendencies to be over weight can change those tendencies if he lives in a disciplined eating environment; in other words, changes his habits by a choice of his will. An overweight person who changes his old and deeply rooted habits and life patterns can obtain a healthier and better life in every aspect.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD WEIGHT BE CHECKED?
Do not check your weight daily. Weight can vary for a number of reasons from one day to another. It is recommended to weigh you only once a week. Always weigh in at the same time since weight varies, depending on whether it is before or after eating, or before or after going to the bathroom. Also, be sure that your clothing is always the same each time.

CONTROL YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
When losing weight, your body measurements can lower in an inadequate proportion, deforming your figure. This normally occurs when you don’t do the correct exercises. Reducing creams exist like those presented in this manual that can be a great help in reducing measurements in certain parts of the body.
In order to lose weight correctly, and harmoniously, remember to:
- Change your conduct, that is, in your habits and attitudes.
- Get adequate nutrition.
- Have an adequate exercise plan.
Exercise should be constant and done on regular basis. Choose exercise that oxygenates the lungs well, such as aerobic exercise, walking, swimming, rhythmic movements, cycling, etc.

Every journey begins with the first step. Becoming thin isn’t achieved in one day, it requires time. The tissues/cells have a memory causing the body to return to its previous weight level. According to studies done in the United States, it has been found that it requires 5 days per pound in order to break this pattern. If you lose 24 pounds, it requires 120 additional days in order to achieve stability for your weight.
The technique of AUTOHYPNOSIS AND SELF-IMAGERY is a great help because it helps you change your eating habits, daily exercise, and positive attitudes in order to reach the desired objective.
