Lose weight and reduce fat to help with hypertension

 

 

Reducing weight and hypertension 

The Low-Fat Diet 

Almost all people in industrialized countries eat too much fat. And fat makes you fat. When you are in the supermarket you will often see “Low Fat” or “light” products. Therefore realising that fat gives us excess weight is not exactly new. 

Most new weight loss programs usually come from the United States. These diets don’t often offer anything new. However, if we think again about it logically we can quickly see a relationship between fatty foods and an increase in fat in our bodies.

Our body fat and the fat in our food are visually similar, so it’s easy to draw a connection between fatty foods and fatty deposits in the body. Basically foods contain three major types of calorie carriers: carbohydrates (e.g. bread, pasta, flour, sugar, potatoes, alcohol, etc.), proteins (e.g. meat, fish, eggs, tofu, etc.) and fats (e.g. vegetable fats such as oils and animal fats). 

Lose weight with little fat 

Obesity and hypertension 

It is important here to know that the group of fats contain twice as many calories per gram as the other two groups. Fats have about 8 calories, carbohydrates and proteins only 4 only 3 calories per gram of food. The calorific value per gram of fat is so much higher than the energy value of carbohydrates or proteins. 

How does a “low-fat diet” work? Basically, you should as far as possible to reduce all fats. This can begin in a variety of small measures, such as the choice of low-fat products at the grocery store, and may culminate in a general changing of lifestyle habits.

If you really want to lose weight fast with the low-fat diet then you need to start to cook in order to obtain an accurate picture of the number of fats in your diet. A lot of processed and ready-made food contains a lot of hidden fats. 

A “Low-Fat Diet” also includes plenty of exercise and drinking plenty of water. Fat is a lubricant and this lubricant is missing in low-fat diets and has to be compensated with plenty of water. High blood pressure patients can achieve good results with this diet.

Obesity is bad 

With high blood pressure, you must always pay attention to your weight

At the book shop you will find many cook books that publish “low-fat'' dishes. Recipes have become better and better in recent years and there are now many delicious dishes that are very low in fat.

The removal fat should not be exaggerated in order to prevent deficiency symptoms. However, those who eat low fat but still eat a lot of fruits and vegetables should be fine.

To minimize fats in our food appears obvious since there is a connection between fatty foods and our body fat. These dietary fats are, if they are taken excessively, stashed away for a rainy day. This is natural and the body creates such depots for bad times in order to survive. 

At the present time we do not need such deposits as we have an abundance of food. To counteract with this, we must program the fats in our food so that no further deposits can be created and the existing ones are broken down.

If you suffer from high blood pressure and you are overweight, you can achieve good results with this diet.
