There are a variety of important factors that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy weight and body composition is one of the best ways to prevent many of the health complications that can come as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle.

There are a variety of important factors that contribute to a
healthy lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy weight and body
composition is one of the best ways to prevent many of the health
complications that can come as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle.
There are also ﬁve essential elements that play a part in
maintaining a healthy weight. Each are interdependent, meaning
that to achieve the best possible results it is important to invest in
each one to live a healthy live.
To achieve the best results and ensure that your
hard work pays off, consider reducing excess
calories from fat and reﬁned carbohydrates such as
sweetened beverages, as well as maintaining an
adequate amount of protein in your diet. Other
important features of a healthy eating plan include
incorporating appropriate amounts of dietary ﬁber,
fruits, and vegetables. It is also wise to consider
consuming a quality dietary supplement to assure
that you receive adequate amounts of essential
nutrients during the time of reduced caloric intake.
Many fall into the trap of focusing solely on
exercise without paying any regard to what they
eat. While exercise is a highly important factor in
the management of a healthy weight and body
composition, without a properly balanced diet,
your physical activity will not be as effective.
A recent study found that women who wanted to
lose excess “baby weight” through exercise without
making any changes to their diet were not able to
achieve signiﬁcant results. In contrast, women who
combined exercise with a healthy diet were able to
have far more positive results.
Just as you cannot hope to achieve your
weight management goals without
eating correctly, you cannot maintain a
healthy lifestyle without regular exercise.
Regular exercise helps maintain muscle as well
as inﬂuences a sense of well-being. Health
professionals recommend at least 30 minutes
of daily physical activity for health, and 60-90
minutes for a speciﬁc weight management
goal. This doesn’t always have to equate to
running on a treadmill, but can include
activities like walking, hiking, resistance
training, or other physical recreation. Find
something that you enjoy doing and strive to
make physical activity a part of your daily life!
Sleep is also an essential part of staying healthy
and can have a huge effect on a weight
management regime. One study of women
showed that getting more than seven hours of
sleep each night is crucial when it comes to
weight management, and that those who had
fewer than seven hours of sleep each night
were more likely to gain weight in the future.
Why? Sleep loss can cause
changes in hormone levels, which
in turn are likely to cause increased
hunger and appetite. This can also
lead to unhealthy eating habits.
At the most basic level, hydration
is an integral part of sustained
health. Proper hydration is a key
part of achieving and maintaining
a healthy weight.
Additionally, if you are middle aged or
older studies have shown that drinking a
cup of water or two before each meal can
help lower the occurrence of obesity.
While many commonly view stress as a mental or
psychological issue, you may be surprised to learn
that it can have an effect on your physical health.
Stress management has been proven to be highly
correlated with effective weight management.
Taking the time to relax and de-stress is crucial,
whether you go for a walk, do some yoga, or listen
to calming music, ﬁnd something that helps you
unwind and relieve stress. You will ﬁnd that it can
have incredible physical and mental beneﬁts.
Maintaining a healthy weight requires
diligence and consistency, but the rewards
are well worth the effort. Be sure to consult
with your physician prior to starting any diet
or change in exercise program .Examine
each of these ﬁve factors in your own life
and identify the areas in which you can
improve to live a, healthier, happier life.
