Holistic Health: Diet and Exercise Therapy for Lifelong Wellness

Diet Therapy

Considering the gender, lifestyle, age, and physical activity status of the person, diet therapy is applied to eating in a healthy and balanced way. Regulating the wrong eating habits in becoming obese is very important in diet therapy. In diet therapy, after the body weight reaches the desired level, it is necessary to maintain this level and to maintain eating habits for life. In the diet treatment applied for children as well as adults, diet programs are made in a way that will continue their development and growth.

The diet programs organized for the person have many essential details. Apart from the weight the person should lose, the metabolic rate is also considered. The energy, protein, fat, carbohydrates, fluids, vitamins, and minerals that should be consumed daily are determined, and diet lists are prepared accordingly. The aim is to prevent other diseases by losing weight correctly and depriving some nutrients.
Today, different diets are on the agenda. Some people say that they lose weight very quickly with these diets. However, the weight lost in this way negatively affects the person's health. Standard diets such as hunger, Swedish, and alkaline negatively affect the person.

When they hear diet, many people think of the "eating less" program. People with obesity should eat 4-6 meals daily instead of a few. Diet programs prepared by expert dietitians indicate the hours when a person should eat. Eating at these specified times is also very important to establish regular nutrition.

Exercise Therapy

Exercise, which is one of the methods and sine qua non of effective weight loss, is one of the types of physical activity. The exercise, which is effective in treating obesity, should be done five times a week on average, and each exercise should be done at moderate intensity for at least 30 minutes. Exercises that need to be done in a disciplined way can be shaped according to the age, gender, living conditions, and sports history of the person. While walking, swimming, and cycling can be among the exercises at a light pace if the person has a predisposition, he can also prefer sports such as football and volleyball.

In addition to moderate-tempo exercises, the person should also do resistance exercises that will work the abdomen, hips, legs, shoulders, and back muscles. These exercises, which will help to lose weight and reach the desired index of the body, should be done 2 or 3 times a week. The energy burning of all these exercises is valid not only during the activity but also after the activity.

In addition to diet, weekly exercise programs are one of the factors that prevent a person from gaining weight again. Regular exercise should be continued after reaching the desired weight. Exercise not only helps you lose weight but also makes you feel good. It can restore confidence lost during obesity and effectively prevent many diseases. Exercise reduces the risk of many diseases, such as decreased insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes.
