Lose weight tasty, sustainable and healthy

 

Introduction

Most people want to look good and look attractive. These characteristics are particularly important to women. In Germany, however, about 60% of all people are overweight. The reasons are the rich food supply in Germany, the prosperity of people and wrong eating habits, which also cause numerous diseases such as diabetes mellitus and high cholesterol as well as obesity. Even children are often overweight in infancy. They are comforted with chocolate and other sweets, rewarded or given them on holidays. Hardly anyone is aware that this is already laying a lifelong basis for obesity. In addition, children have bad teeth and dentists warn of periodontitis and tooth decay. I too was rewarded with chocolate and received it on certain festive days, so that I often had to go to the dentist as a child, which scared me a lot.

All people should be on a balanced and healthy diet with little sugar, fat (except omega-3 fats) and salt in moderation.

When are you overweight?

In general, a BMI of over 25 is slightly overweight. This is divided into different levels up to the most severe degree of obesity with a BMI over 40. Nevertheless, you should take into account that people over 40 are usually still of normal weight even with a higher BMI. If, for example, you have a BMI of 25.9 at 44, this is completely unproblematic, since the weight increases with increasing age and is still within the normal range. You can do this with the BMI-Rechner der Techniker-Krankenkasse determine. There has been a certain amount of hype about the weight, so that many people who would not need it want to lose weight.

Of course, if you have a BMI from 28 upwards, you can assume that you are overweight. No matter what age you are. Then you should definitely consider reducing your weight.

IIFYM - The new nutritional method where fast food is allowed

 

What is IIFYM?

“If it fits your macros” ist ein Ernährungskonzept bei dem eine gewisse Menge an Fast Food erlaubt ist, sofern die Makronährstoffe gedeckt sind. Im Verhältnis 80:20 (80 % gesunde Lebensmittel/20 % Fast Food) darf man bei diesem Ernährungskonzept auch Fast Food essen. Diese Methode ist wissenschaftlich belegt.

What are macronutrients?

Macronutrients are fat, carbohydrates and protein. When it comes to fat, IIFYM must of course ensure that you eat health-promoting fats such as those found in fish. Fish contains, among other things, the valuable omega-3 fatty acids.

What does IIFYM look like in practice?

First, determine your total calorie needs. You can do this as part of a nutritional consultation, but also with an online tool from the Internet. It is important at IIFYM that you do not exceed the calorie count minus 500 kcal (for weight loss). IIFYM therefore requires strict calorie counting. You can do this with Android or an iOS app, for example. Now you have to make sure that 80% of your total calorie requirement consists of health-promoting foods (whole grains, lettuce, fruits, vegetables, in moderation nuts - the latter because of the high calorie content). You can cover 20% of your total calorie needs with a kebab, a piece of cake, a pizza, a lasagna or a hamburger. Only your macronutrients must be covered.

What is IIFYM not?

IIFYM is not an invitation to rampant fast food consumption! It is important that you always count your calories and also adhere to the stated ratio of 80:20. Otherwise you risk cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes mellitus, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity.

Who is IIFYM for?

IIFYM is suitable for people who do not forego fast food, but still want to lose weight. It is also suitable for those who used to eat mostly fast food in the past, but now want to switch for health reasons. As already mentioned at the beginning, this nutritional method has been scientifically proven. However, it only works if the person who uses it counts his calories in a very disciplined manner.

Is IIFYM also suitable for diabetics?

Diabetics are better advised with the LOGI method or the diet according to the glycemic index / glycemic load. These dietary methods have often had a very good effect on diabetics.
