Fatmagül Yılmaz Öztürk, Nutrition and Diet Specialist at Medicana Bahçelievler Hospital, pointed out that no matter how much weight is lost, shaping the body is about doing sports, and explained the methods of losing weight in a healthy way:
Stating that sports balance the distribution of fat, Öztürk said, “Fat accumulated in the abdomen increases the risk of heart disease more in men. It causes diabetes in both sexes. Therefore, the waist-hip ratio is important; it should not exceed 1 in men and 0.8 in women. “Sports balances your fat distribution and makes you healthier.”
Saying that it is not healthy to lose weight all of a sudden, Dyt. Öztürk said, “Shock diets aiming for rapid weight loss can often put people on an irreversible path. Sometimes it brings sudden shock deaths. Since the loss of muscle causes the metabolism to drop too much, the lost weight cannot be maintained and more is regained. This brings the feeling of failure. After a certain period of time, we become unable to respond to weight loss because it is battered,” he said.
Must be chewed well
Dyt stated that it is necessary to gain good chewing habits in the diet program process. Fatmagül Yılmaz Öztürk said, “Because our brain sends a signal saying ‘you are full, don’t eat anymore’ 20 minutes after we take the first bite into our mouth. Therefore, after we take a bite into our mouth, we have to chew it until it is well distributed in our mouth. So it is important that digestion starts in the mouth, not in the stomach. We also reduce the load on us and we start to eat less than before because we realize that we are full. Whether you eat fast or slow, you cannot get up from that table before 15 minutes. When you eat fast, your complaints of indigestion and bloating increase. Water should be drunk to burn the calories taken. If we take 2 thousand 500 calories “We need to drink 2 and a half liters of water,” he said.
