Woman and weight loss is an eternal struggle that happens in almost all women, no matter if the number of extra pounds is only few or very high. Unfortunately, and this does not go for women only, when it comes to weight loss, the first and most important reason for starting a weight reduction process is because of esthetics, while health comes later.
Weight loss and health
Only when certain number of pounds is lost, people start to realize how beneficial weight reduction is for their health, not only for having an attractive body. The most obvious effect is easier performance of all daily physical activities (for example, going to a second floor by steps is no longer a problem). Since body weighs a bit less, less energy is needed while performing the same motions as before. Also, when it comes to dieting, it is important to use some healthy and balanced diet, the one that is not too restrictive and that will not allow very low amount of calories (which might be a shock for some people, both mental and physical). This is why number of calories allowed has to be set at a certain level, low enough for a fat burning process to start but not too low to be unhealthy for the organism.
The best thing to do when it comes to losing weight is to combine an effective diet with some serious exercising. The only problem here that might occur is in the mind of a person that suddenly has to change a lot of things in life. Eating habits have to be changed and fun time has to be significantly decreased in order to implement physical activity, not only once or twice in a week, but at least three times, while everyday workout would be perfect.
P90X program is one of those combinations and it is an effective one too. The problem with this program is that it does include a relatively intensive workout and a somewhat strict diet too. But it is a healthy combination and it should be tried. Although, some experts say that P90X for women might not be the best possible option, at least for those who are just starting with losing weight. Still, if this method is used, some of the exercises can be tweaked a bit so that they can be performed more easily. For example, if pull ups are presenting a problem, those can and should be replaced with resistance band exercise. Even like this, P90X will be very effective.
