Lose Weight With The All Day Activity Tracker!

Currently, about 31%, or about 59 million people, are obese. Obese is defined as roughly 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight. Almost 65% are either obese or overweight, 10 to 30 pounds over a healthy weight. Being over weight or obese will increases ones chances of developing diabetes, heart disease, some types of cancer and a host of other health problems.

Americans often want to find an easy way to loosing weight.  Some get the gastrial-bypass surgery or stomach stapling.  This surgery shrinks your stomach resulting in the person eating less.  But to often the person falls back into old habits and gains the weight back (sometimes more than they lost).  Weight takes time to put on and to take it off.  The amount of food a person needs each day depends on the person’s energy needs.  These energy needs are directly related to periods of growth, age, and physical activity.  Simply put the more active person will require more calories (food).  If you intake 2,100 calories and you expend 2,000 calories over a moth you will gain 1 lbs.  Doesn’t sound like much but if this pattern continues over a year you will gain 12 lbs., and that is only if you eat 100 calories more a day.  What will happen if you eat 200 or 500 or 700 extra calories over a year?

In conclusion there is no easy way to lose weight.   It takes time, patience, someone that is committed to loosing the weight and a lot of hard work. You did not gain the weight over night and likewise you will not take it off overnight.  Don’t worry you are not the only person trying to loose weight
