The proper weight
Quite a lot of peopleare increasingly interested in the proper weight disposition, with regards totheir height. One of the main reasons for this is that people believe a certainbalance between height and weight should exist, for this could potentially leadto better overall health. What may come as a great surprise and disappointmentat the same time to many is that there is not any 100% sound proof method for determiningthis. On the other hand, what a person can do is asses, measure and come to a body shape, which will perfectly correspond to his/her height.
The fact is that thegreatest majority of people who seek to lose weight is familiar with the fact thatthe entire process should be primarily based in the loss of excessive fat.However, a lot of people are unaware of the fact that there is a possibilitythat the loss of weight in general should not reside on the loss of fatnecessarily. The loss of muscle mass, as well as loss of fluids, i.e. water, should also be taken into account. But these two do not play any role if a personseeks to shape up the body in terms of modeling it until it becomes perfectlydefined. What loss of muscles triggers is sluggishness of the metabolism, thusmaking one even more prone to a rebound and gain of additional weight. As forthe loss of water, this is of short duration, for the body is able to restoreand make up for those losses of water quite rapidly.
Scales may causetemporary insanity
Unfortunately, scalesused for determining the proper weight of one’s body are in charge of a greatnumber of lives. Of course, this can lead only to unnecessarydisappointment and emptiness, for constant weighing is the one way thatwill never facilitate the process of carving a picture of the perfect body.
One quite uncomplicatedmethod to asses if a body is well defined or not is bymeasuring the waist to hip ratio in cases of women. 0.7 is regarded as the one that will give awoman in question perfect hourglass looks. Having men in mind,the most applicable and easy-to-do method for measuring a “V” shaped body is bymeasuring shoulder to hip ratio – for that picture of perfect and dazzling body, one should strive to 0.8 shoulder/waist ratio.
