WEIGHT LOSS TIP: Becoming overweight is caused by many factors however food seems to bear the brunt of the blame and some people even go to the extreme and start to look at food as their enemy.
Food is not the enemy, on the contrary, food is what sustains your very life by giving you energy and supplying your body with all of the many nutrients that are required to perform the various functions that keep you and your body alive. People that start to look at food as their enemy can end up developing severe eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia in their misguided attempts to try to eliminate food from their lives as a desperate way to lose weight.
This is why it is very important to understand the fundamental reasons why you eat so that you can look upon food in the correct light as something that is very beneficial to your body and to sustaining your life. The only way that food ever contributes to anyone being overweight has to do with the amount of energy that is contained in the food that you eat.
If you ingest more energy than the everyday needs of your body then you will begin to accumulate the extra energy in the form of stored fat. You can overcome this problem by eating healthy food that contains all the nutrients your body requires with just the right amount of energy to fuel your body without an excess that leads to the storing of fat. You should start looking at food as your best friend that sustains your life but as with all good friends if you abuse food you will have to pay a price so starting having the right relationship with your friend food and both eating and losing weight will become a pleasure.
