How often do we hear people complain for being low weight for not getting enough calories? How often do we hear people complain for being skinny even when they are already loading up on carbs? Not really that much right? We usually hear people gripe on being overweight. We usually see people hitting the gym, going to yoga classes, enrolling to spin class, going jogging, and starving themselves plus all other desperate measures to lose weight. Wouldn’t we just kill to possess the amazing gift of being able to eat as much as we like, anytime we want to without getting fat? That’s most probably the ultimate dream of every person wanting to lose weight.
What we are not really aware of is that there are also several people out there who are suffering from being low weight and underweight. Most of the time, this is caused by an inherent medical condition. The most common reason for this though is a low supply of calories to the body. If such is the case, you might want to look into the diet that you are following. It is possible that the diet you have does not give you the appropriate amount of energy that your body needs.
Energy comes in the form of calories. If you are low weight, it usually follows that you won’t have energy to function properly. The formula is very simple. You need energy to possess energy to give off energy. The more energy or calories you have, the higher your ability to move, function and be productive therefore the higher your ability to burn off fats. On the other side of the plate, overweight people become overweight because their bodies are full of calories, ergo stored energy, but don’t give off that much energy. In short, they do not capitalize on the abundant supply of energy that they possess. The case with low weight people is that they are lacking this abundance of calories that overweight people have.
If you fall in the underweight category, it is advisable that you switch to a balanced diet. Consult a nutritionist for advice on what type of food is best for your condition. Check your eating habits if it’s what’s causing you to be underweight. Zap out emotional stress as much as possible. Being underweight is not something that you can just take lightly (pun intended). It is as much as a problem with being overweight.
