Check the Weight and Stay Active

The balance of the energy balance is the key to our health: eat properly and engage in physical activities are habits that are learned and practiced consistently.

Our weight, in the absence of specific diseases, is the tangible expression of the energy balance between revenue and caloric outputs. If introduces more energy than it consumes the excess accumulates in the body in the form of fat, resulting in weight gain. Conversely, if you introduce less energy than it consumes the body uses its fat sources to meet energy demands.

This general principle should be added the awareness that everyone has their own metabolism, so it tends more or less to lose or gain weight depending on your constitutional biotype. The metabolism is measured with special equipment, but each of us knows from his own experience it tends to gain weight or not. Who knows he has this tendency must pay much more attention to nutrition and physical activities play constantly. Quantity of body fat excessive represent a health hazard especially for the risk of developing certain diseases (coronary heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, certain types of cancer), respiratory failure (sleep apnea) and mechanical impact caused by the overload on joints (spine, knees, hips, etc.).

Overweight inverse problem is the thinness: when fat reserves are too small and not enough energy is introduced with the food, the body, to meet the energy demands, it is bound to affect their muscles and internal organs. Therefore, many metabolic and endocrine functions are affected: decreases the resistance to infectious diseases, weaken the bones, you can alter the regularity of the menstrual cycle.

The achievement of a proper body weight should be achieved through a more active life physically (ie an increase of energy outputs), through the feed control (ie an introduction of adequate caloric intake) and through the appropriate choice of the quality of foods hired. The habit of a sedentary lifestyle, in addition to being a predisposing factor in obesity, also involves other aspects of health, and is a risk factor for coronary heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, hypertension and osteoporosis senile . By contrast, an average level of physical activity is the best way to prevent these diseases. Children who remain active throughout the growing season they will have as adults, a more robust skeleton and, as seniors, They will be more easily prone to fractures due to osteoporosis. Maintaining a physically active life even with advancing age is important both to reduce and delay the atrophy of muscle and bone mass, both to increase the energy needs, so as to allow even more abundant supply. The constant physical activity (at least 20 minutes four or five times a week) and of sufficient intensity to cause intense sweating must be within the normal habits and represent a need like hygiene of the person. so as to allow even more abundant supply.
