The Network is becoming increasingly popular marathon, to lose weight. What's on the other side, the gambling, the pursuit of the perfect form.
The attractiveness of online marathon the weight loss to make them available to everyone. Participation in the projects for free. Other require a small fee, but the winner of the prize. In addition to this, the number of dreams. The essence of the projects is approximately the same. The people included in the group, led by a curator, most often a sports coach, a psychologist, or simply a man who managed to lose weight, and then offered to follow the experience. The participants sent daily exercise videos, workouts, nutrition, guidelines. Duty "marathon" every day is a photo - video reports sent to the organizers. Who will be the work place will be in the finals, who gets the most votes, the other participants will be the winner.
At first glance, this temptation. If you don't have enough willpower to exercise, eat properly, you can use the "stick" in the form of an online coach will force you to do anything. Moreover, in this situation gambling the effect of competition, competition. I want to prove that it isn't worse or better than the other. Another advantage is that the collective weight loss: your colleagues by "misfortune" to share experiences, advice, moral support.
However, this method of weight loss does not fit all.
What kind of errors should not to the potential participants of the online marathon?
- Participate in the marathon without prior consultation with the doctor. For the sake of fairness it should be noted that the organizers of some of the proposed projects, consult a doctor before you start classes. It is desirable that those who consider themselves healthy. Many people are not aware that there is a problem, or violations do not allow to play this game. Not take part in these marathons, people, the diabetes, the obesity, the second and the third stage (these people, even regular squats can cause injury to the joints), or other chronic diseases.
- To believe the fantastic promises. "2 weeks you can lose weight 10 kg". Or: "After the marathon are given a perfect shape". Because a lot depends on what kind of people they were originally. If it's too big, then it is likely that a month will be able to lose weight to the normal values. And that's downright dangerous. We need to understand: if the weight goes away very quickly, then, most likely, unbalanced diet, very low calorie. Sudden, rapid weight loss is dangerous because usually at the expense of losing muscle mass. Also, if someone is just starting exercise, the first weight increase, not decrease, because the will to actively shape the muscle, muscle is heavier than fat.
- You don't need to pay attention to any discomfort during a marathon. "If there is no pain in the joints, increases the swelling of the extremities during exercise, the heart rate has changed (in general, the patients described, in a figurative sense: "my heart's beating like a bird in a cage"), or any other manifestation of the patient's health classes need to stop and consult a doctor.
- After completing the marathon, to return to the previous power mode (muffins, sweets, sausages) , forget the exercise." In this case, the old kg will come back. But it's possible that the revenge. This does not mean that the rest of my life to sit on a low calorie diet, torture yourself in the gym. The results achieved need to maintain a balanced diet and adequate physical activity.
- Not to consider my own nature. "Typically, these open events, where participants share personal information, upload your photos to the social networks, the planned extroverts, i.e. people who are able to openly Express themselves to me and introduce yourself, show the results including the not the best, the others, strangers. If these types of people is not taken into account, then it is better not even to start to participate. Or the distance from the beginning, or the experience of psychological stress, which blocks possible use for the lesson.
- It's naive to think that the coach or the organisers bear at least some responsibility for their actions", for example, if the participants have health problems. As people leading online marathons typically do not have medical training, the activity is not authorised or regulated. And, therefore, the demand for them is appropriate.
- I hope that the master will choose the diet, which is suitable specifically for you. "In general, the recommendations of the standard and quite common, for example, how many proteins, fats, carbohydrates should keep your daily diet the average participant. Some food may just be a specialist (dietitian) after a personal visit, preferably, a detailed examination of the patient. Because the diet changes depending on whether the goal is to by one person before: lose weight, keep the existing weight, build muscle, etc. by the way, to calculate your personal caloric needs, proteins, fats, carbohydrates every person may have their own, without the coach.
- Do not take into account very well that in a given day." To perform the exercises, the pain, the power, and can be dangerous. For example, the women in heavy periods the first 2-3 days is not recommended increased physical activity.
- I don't care, the training, the education, the certificates, the organizers of the marathon", consultants, feedback about them on the Internet. You have to understand: not just a game of opportunity, trust that these people health. For example, most of the people prefer to send the machine in for repair to the professionals, then why need to imagine, as the indifference?
- Do not be tempted by prizes in the form of plastic surgery or breast snow-white smile", which is offered in a marathon. Indeed, man is inherently good external data. But, confident that the project organizers, who sell ads to these aesthetic services, people seeing this "attractive carrots", starting to think maybe I should, or perhaps artificially made Breasts, that's good, right? All prizes must be humane, neutral.
