A person needs to take in about 15 calories per pound of body weight per day. - Obviously then, heavy, fat people need to eat more calories than slimmer people. - They need the extra calories because they have heavier bodies to carry around and to service and they need extra calories to maintain body temperature because the amount of heat a body loses is proportional to its surface area, and obviously a fat person's surface area is larger than a slim person's.
If people do not eat sufficient calories their health will suffer and they will feel tired, cold and hungry. - So fat people wanting to lose excess weight should not try to do so by eating too few calories. - Here is the safe, fast, effective way to lose excess weight without dieting, without hunger, without drugs, without counting calories, without strenuous exercise - just eat less salt. - Eating less salt/sodium reduces the fluid retention which is the cause of the overweight. It also reduces fat retention, which tends to follow from fluid retention.
Overweight and obesity are caused by fluid retention, not by eating too many calories, and occur only in people who are sensitive to salt/sodium. - To lose excess weight it is necessary to cut down on salt and salty food. - So instead of eating ready meals you need to cook a meal from fresh ingredients and use little or no salt to flavour it. - You could try using pepper or herbs instead of salt, or if you feel you cannot yet give up salt, then use one of the low sodium salt substitutes, e.g. LoSalt, Solo Low Sodium Sea Salt or AlsoSalt, instead of ordinary salt.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, angina, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
