2019 Ushers in the Most Obese Population Ever
Every year, more and more people than ever before are being classified as obese. In previous years it’s dipped up and down, but in 2019, the obese population will include a higher percentage of people than it ever has before.
This is due a variety of factors, from cheaper unhealthy foods to economic growth, but the increasing population of obese people has also opened up a wide variety of new weight loss programs.
With all kinds of different diets, workout plans, and online resources, there’s still a record high amount of obese and overweight people.
It’s starting to become more prevalent in all different genders and age groups, as well, appearing earlier in children and more frequently in adults.
The main problem at hand is that people aren’t taking advantage of these resources. If you’re just starting a weight loss program and trying to get in shape, it’s intimidating these days.
With social media, you’ve probably seen all kinds of videos of these super in shape people and been discouraged.
You’ve probably also seen so many articles telling you which diet is the best among many, and all of that gets really confusing.
What you need to know is that the best workout plan and the best diet varies from person to person.
The diet that works for that Instagram model who’s already in shape is not the same diet that you should immediately go for.
You need to find something that’s better than your current diet, but also something reasonable.
When people go to these extreme lengths to try to get in shape, it’s really difficult for them to keep up with.
This is the main crux of the matter. The ultimate failure that will bring your weight loss program down isn’t having an easy diet or having light workouts, it’s not being able to commit to your program.
No matter what kind of program you do, it’s useless for weight loss unless you can stick with it for an extended period of time.
Don’t push yourself to go for the most extreme diet and the most intense workout program, especially if you’re just starting off.
You don’t have to work that hard to start losing weight, so if you push yourself beyond your limits, you’re just going to stop when you don’t see the quick results you want to see.
Keep your weight loss program within reason, and you’ll be a lot more successful.
Health Apps That Help You Lose Weight
Sometimes, it can be pretty difficult to try to mentally keep track of all the things you need to be doing to keep up with your weight loss plan. You need to track your weight, your diet, your workouts, and everything in between.
While keeping a fitness notebook isn’t the worst thing, it’s a bit inconvenient and difficult to keep up with regularly.
Instead, many people are now taking to using their smartphones to help them lose weight in various ways.
There are tons of apps and services available today that can help you lose weight in a way that can make it more fun, rewarding, or easy. First off, there are the tracking apps.
Tracking all of your meals can be a pain, especially when you have to look all over the packaging for the information and tally it all out.
Luckily, there are apps available that can help make your job a lot easier.
By putting in some basic information, these apps will tell you what kind of dietary plan you should have, and will automatically make the calculations showing you how many calories you have left in that day.
Additionally, instead of having to check all over the packaging, you can simply search for the foods and the stats will already be pre-entered.
One type of service that has seen great success for a lot of people are the weight betting websites.
Users are able to bet real money that they’ll meet certain weight goals within an allotted timeframe, and if they do meet their scheduled goals, they’ll get more money back than they put in.
However, if they fail to meet their weight goals, they don’t get any money back. That money would then go on to fund other people’s successful bets.
This gives people a more tangible goal and can give them even more motivation to keep up with their diets and workouts.
Finally, there are apps that allow you to have fun by working out. Some services like FitBit allow you to compete against your friends over who gets the most steps in over a weekend or week, which can help more competitive people get out and start exercising.
It can even recommend good scenic trails and give you virtual rewards for walking a certain distance. Getting out and walking a trail or even just walking around a city is great for weight loss as well as your cardiovascular system.

How Many Different Methods of Intermittent Fasting Can You Try in 2019?
Everyone has probably heard about one of the many trendy diets that always come around, from paleo to alkaline and everything in between.
These are all good and well, but some people get too caught up in which foods to eat over others and all the deeper nutritional facts, when it can be summarized pretty easily.
You need to burn more calories than you consume. If you’re extremely active, you can eat more than someone who isn’t because your body is using those calories.
For most people who are either inactive or only somewhat active, it’s difficult to maintain that lower calorie diet each passing day.
Eventually, you might get tired of doing it and lose hope, especially if you’re not seeing results quick enough. There is a method that can help you eat a bit more on some days than others, though: intermittent fasting.
Intermittent fasting allows you to eat regularly most days, while eating an extremely low amount on others. This gives your body an overall net loss of calories, which is what you need to be able to lose weight.
Intermittent fasting is different than regular fasting, because you get to choose the days and the frequency of your fast.
There are a few different methods of intermittent fasting out there, and you should experiment with them to figure out which one best fits your needs and your schedule.
One of the common methods of intermittent fasting is the two-five schedule. The two-five schedule allows you to spend five days of the week eating regularly, but you choose two days to eat no more than 500 calories.
There are also methods that have daily fasts, but you adjust the time of when you eat.
For example, the Warrior fast gives you four hours to eat per day, with the remainder of the day spent consuming nothing but water.
This can help restrict your calorie levels greatly and help your body start burning off fat for energy. When it comes to the hourly-based fasts like the Warrior fast, you don’t necessarily have to do them every day.
If you’ve never fasted before, start off just doing it one day out of the week. Once you get acclimated to doing that, you can move up to twice a week or more, giving yourself more days in which you’re using up fat for energy.
It’s good to leave one or two days per week as regular eating days, just to make sure you keep your energy up.
