When it comes to calories, it’s quality, not quantity, that really counts, 1,500 calories from your favourite dessert or cookies are not as good for you as 1,500 calories from vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.
But healthy and low calorie meal doesn’t have to mean a small portion. In fact 1,500 calories of vegetables and wholegrains will fill more of your plate than 1,500 calories of dense foods like fatty red meats, processed carbohydrates and sugary desserts will, and it will also keep you feeling fuller for longer.
The ideal mix for every meal would have your plate half covered with of vegetables (or fruit for breakfast), a quarter covered lean protein, and a quarter with of high-fibre, complex carbohydrates. Good sources of lean proteins include: skinless poultry, fish, tofu, beans, and low-fat dairy while good sources of high-fibre carbohydrate include: brown rice, and anything made with whole-wheat pasta, whole-wheat bread, couscous, and buckwheat.
For vegetables green leaves and bright colours are best, including broccoli, kailan, cabbage, spinach, and bok choy. Bright coloured vegetables like tomatoes, capsicums, carrots, sweet potatoes, beetroot and aubergines contain important phytochemicals with important health benefits. Fruit can replace (or share) the veggie portion of your plate, and are also ideal snacks and desserts.
Don’t neglect healthy fats, such as olive oil, nuts, avocado, seeds, and canola oil but not too much as they are high in calories.
Flexibility is an important part of physical fitness as it helps prevent injuries. “Increased flexibility can allow you to enjoy more activities, improve the range of motion of your joints and promotes better postures; regular stretching can also help relieve stress,” says Deepa.
Before you stretch, warm up by walking or doing some light exercise at low intensity for five to 10 minutes. Better yet, stretch after you exercise session, when your muscles are warm and more receptive. Yoga is great for flexibility, core strength, and balance, so consider learning the basics and incorporating a simple 15 or 20 yoga routine into your workouts or even as part of your morning routine before your shower.
Balance and coordination exercises are also important for safety if you have not exercised for some years. Being well-balanced and coordinated is important when you are using weights, especially for leg exercises like squats and lunges, and even treadmills.
According to Singapore-based Deepa Primalani, a fitness trainer with Your Fitness, “Older adults especially should include balance and coordination exercises in their routines because both tend to deteriorate with age, which can lead to falls and fractures.” Simple exercises like standing on one leg or walking heel to toe along a line on the floor will improve your overall stability but more fun activities such as dancing, yoga, and tai chi also promote balance and coordination.
Anaerobic training is another key component of a fitness training program. Including some strength training into your sessions two to four times a week can help you increase bone strength and muscular fitness. It can also help you maintain muscle mass during a weight loss program.
Most fitness centres offer various resistance machines, free weights and other tools for strength training. But according to Nikhil you don’t need to invest in a gym membership or expensive equipment to get the effect. “Hand-held weights or homemade weights such as plastic water bottles filled with water or sand can work just as well for beginners.” Resistance bands are another inexpensive option. Your own body weight counts too; try push-ups, abdominal crunches and leg squats.
Strength training is an important part of a weight loss programme because it helps to build muscle and muscles burn more calories, even when resting, than fat so they help to increase your basal metabolic rate (BMR).
Aerobic exercise or cardio is the foundation of most fitness programmes according to Abraham Nikhil, director and fitness trainer at Phyzique in Singapore. “Aerobic exercise improves your endurance (how long you can keep up an activity) by developing the capacity of your heart and lungs to pump oxygen into your blood and deliver it to your muscles,” he explains. The better your aerobic fitness the easier it is to complete routine physical tasks and rise to unexpected challenges, such as running to catch a bus or to dodge a sudden shower.
Aerobic exercise includes any physical activity that uses large muscle groups and increases your heart rate. “You could start with something as basic as walking and work up to jogging, biking or swimming.” suggests Nikhil. If you find those a bit dull or like company when exercising there are all sorts of classes in gyms and even community centres, from dancing, and step to spinning (stationary bicycles) and even water aerobics to try.
Start slowly with shorter sessions and aim to build up to at least three or four, 30 minute sessions a week.
Today there are a host of new, and not so new, technologies offering non-invasive methods for dealing with fat deposits and contouring or reshaping the body, ranging from laser to radio frequency, and ultra sound machines. The object of all these technologies whether they heat up, freeze or vibrate the cells is to break the fat down into fatty acids and glycerol, which are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system.
Most of these technologies, when used properly by trained medical professionals, actually do work on small pockets of fat but they are not meant to be used for losing large amounts of weight. They work best for people who are already within 10 to 12 kg of their ideal weight but need some help to lose stubborn pockets of fat from problem areas or to tighten up loose skin and smooth out irregularities after losing weight.
Later on in this book we will look more closely at these technologies and the weight loss problems they are ideal for solving such as targeting difficult to shift deposits of fat from specific small areas and smoothing away cellulite dimples. They are also very good for solving post weight loss problems like loose skin and stretch marks.
Fat blockers are dietary supplements designed to limit the absorption of fat from the food you eat. Most fat blockers on the market today are based on chitosan, a natural fibre extracted from shellfish. Chitosan binds to the fat in the intestine which makes the fat not absorbable by the body and it is excreted in the faeces.
Used as part of a sensible weight loss plan which is based on a healthy diet and regular exercise, fat blockers can give you that little extra edge you need to succeed. Taken alone without modifying eating habits and exercising they are unlikely to have much benefit.
Fat blockers can help you to enjoy feasts during festive seasons, holidays and social occasions without worrying about what those treats are doing to your waistline. However prolonged use can cause problems.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or simply lipo is not usually marketed as a weight loss surgery but as a cosmetic procedure to remove fat and improve the aesthetic contours of the body. Suitable areas for lipo include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, backs of the arms, and for men, the chest.
The basic and most common form of lipo is Suction-assisted liposuction (SAL). The surgeon inserts a small cannula (the straw-like tube through which the fat is sucked out) through a small incision. It is attached to a vacuum device. The surgeon pushes and pulls it in a forwards and backwards motion, carefully through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells and drawing them out of the body by suction.
In recent years, several types of assisted lipo have been developed including Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) which uses ultra sound waves to emulsify or liquefy the fat which is then removed, Water Assisted Liposuction (WAL) in which water is ejected into the fat to break it up and then sucked out of the fat and water mix, and Laser Assisted Liposuction (LAL) where a laser is used to melt the fat in the target area, making it easier to remove.
Depending on the variant the procedure may be performed under general, regional, or local anaesthesia. The safety of the technique relates not only to the amount of tissue removed, but to the choice of anaesthetic and the patient’s overall health.
Before the procedure, the surgeon would advise the patient how much fat to remove from which part of the body; several factors limit the amount of fat that can be safely removed through these methods.
