Weight Loss - Nature's Way Formula :
Part of our natural, basic human makeup means that we tend to store fat. In fact, this is something that has been with us for many thousands of years as it was probably a survival mechanism to get over the times when our ancient forebears were short of food.
Given that it is only in recent times that food has become so abundantly plentiful (at least for those of us who live in the West), we have never really lost the capacity for storing unused energy as body fat. It is a little like animals that hibernate for the winter.
They build up a huge store of unused energy during the summer that is sufficient to keep their inactive body 'ticking over' during the winter months when they are hibernating.
You cannot change, nor can you ignore, thousands of years of evolution. The fact is, modern Western man (and woman) has no real need to store unused energy in the way that our prehistoric forebears did, but you are going to continue doing so despite this. So, if you are taking on too much energy, you are going to get fat, there is no avoiding this. You therefore need to know an awful lot more about why it happens if you want to tackle your problem entirely naturally.
The first thing that you need to understand about losing weight is that almost everything you eat and drink contains calories. The only exception to this rule in terms of naturally occurring substances is water (more about water later). Other than that, everything you consume contains calories, and it doesn't really matter a great deal how these calories are taken. This is one of the reasons why there are so many virulent arguments between those who suggest that in order to lose weight, you need to cut down on carbohydrates and those who on the other hand suggest that fats are the real demon that needs to be banished from your diet, and why they are probably on the wrong track.
There is little quantifiable scientific proof that following one particular eating approach like this is likely to be more effective for losing weight than anything else. While it is not at all difficult to find seemingly qualified people like medical doctors who will tell you that one particular diet regime (e. g. a carbohydrate only diet) is going to help you lose weight more quickly than anything else, it is surely no coincidence that most of these 'objective' observers have some kind of vested interest in the product or proposal that they are supporting.
The fact is, both carbohydrates and fats are processed by the body to produce energy, and so it follows that if you eat too many of either one or the other or even both, you are going to put more weight on.
