weight management

It is not always easy to have a good grip on your own weight management and your body weight can quickly deviate significantly from normal weight. This leads to more sluggishness, less vitality and also represents a health risk. Overweight and underweight people are equally affected.

Being overweight, also known as obesity, increases the risk of many chronic and often diet-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, stroke, heart attack or significantly increases the risk of certain types of cancer. This can have an impact on lifespan and shorten it considerably.

Weight problems are affecting more and more people, the number of overweight is significantly higher in relation to underweight. In a 2017 monitoring, the Robert Koch Institute showed that 46.7% of all women and 61.6% of men are overweight. 15.4% of young people also already suffer from weight problems. Through professional weight management, people with weight problems can get these problems under control, according to their individual needs, with certified nutritionists and with the involvement of specialist doctors.

According to scientific findings, it helps to change the way of life and diet in the long term to prevent chronic diseases and weight problems and to regain quality of life.

Weight management is based on several pillars. On the one hand, it is important to provide the body with all the nutrients it needs through nutrition, as well as enough exercise and rest periods for regeneration. Another pillar is stress management, where even moderate exercise helps to reduce stress. In addition, relaxation methods such as autogenic training or meditation can help.

The only way to keep weight management under control for as long as possible is to make a permanent change in diet. We at Everybuddy can help you with some of our products to start the transition and achieve long-term success. Short-term diets are often unsuccessful and counterproductive.

But being underweight also poses major health risks, so significant nutrient deficiencies can lead to dangerous and fatal diseases. In 2013 around 2 million people in Germany were underweight. Diseases such as cancer or anorexia and bulimia are a trigger.

The BMI serves as a guide for both overweight and underweight. A BMI of 25-30 is overweight. A BMI from 30 stands for obesity, i.e. severe overweight. Being underweight begins below a BMI of 18.5 with signs of persistent fatigue. In both cases, it is strongly recommended to consult a specialist.

In order to get weight management under control in the long term and successfully, exercise is essential. Appropriate physical exercise is highly recommended for both planned weight loss and intentional gaining weight. If you lose 500g of body weight per week without physical activity, you risk depleting your body's protein reserves.

Finally, we give you a few more tips to integrate your weight management successfully and long-term into your everyday life:

-Eat a natural diet: lots of fresh ingredients and home-cooked meals

-Each meal should have enough protein, rule of thumb: 30g/meal

- Avoid industrial sugar and alcohol, try to follow this rule during the week and treat yourself to something at the weekend - balance is the key for long-term success!

-Activate your fat metabolism through, for example, low-carbohydrate nutrition and extensive fasting units - try it out slowly!

-Eat healthy fats: Nuts, canola and olive oil even speed up your fat metabolism

-Drink 1.5 liters of water daily for a stable water balance

-Eat regularly - regular calorie intake is the key to long-term success

-Try to eat easy: Weighing, arithmetic, hard-to-get foods, and strict rules and prohibitions won't work forever
