Maintaining a healthy weight is important for your overall health and can help you lead a vital life. Having a normal weight reduces the risk of health problems such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and often leaves you feeling more energetic. How you live, eat, and exercise significantly influences your weight and overall health. If you want to lose weight, it's important to consider various lifestyle factors and make changes as needed. This includes healthy eating, a relaxing living environment, regular physical activity, and a balanced sleep routine. The Body Mass Index (BMI) is an index that measures the relationship between your weight and height, and is often used to determine whether you have a healthy weight.

Healthy and Varied Eating
With a varied diet, you provide the body with an adequate supply of minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and fibers, each of which contributes to the body in its own way. These nutrients are primarily found in whole, natural, and unprocessed foods such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, fish, meat, and eggs. The body is like a factory, and food is the essential fuel for many processes in the body. Some nutrients, like certain vitamins and amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), are produced by the body itself. Others are not, such as minerals and trace elements. Of the minerals, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, chloride, and phosphorus are known to be essential for the body. Since minerals are substances that the body cannot produce on its own, it is important to obtain them through food or supplementation. Creating a healthy, balanced, and achievable eating pattern, where the overall diet is complete and does not lead to a loss of muscle mass, is important when aiming for weight loss.
Assistance with Weight Loss
In addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle, there are also numerous well-known natural products that promote weight loss. You can promote weight loss with various supplements by harnessing the power of nature. Especially supplements containing 'nutraceuticals' are interesting. These are natural products with proven medicinal properties. Did you know, for example, that the amino acid L-carnitine plays a key role in various metabolic processes and that spirulina, a high-quality algae, reduces hunger, has antioxidant properties, and supports weight management*1? Seaweed can also aid in weight loss since it contains hardly any carbohydrates, is packed with proteins, and has a high fiber content, making you feel full more quickly. Spiru-Blue Spirulina from Dr. Mercola, Acetyl-L-Carnitine from Ergomax, and Organic Seaweed Extract from Seagreens are some examples of natural weight loss supplements available at Ergomax.
What is the Ketogenic Diet?
While in the past, consuming too much fat was seen as a cause of unhealthy weight, in recent years, the focus has shifted more towards carbohydrates. The idea behind a low-carb diet, such as the paleo diet or the stricter ketogenic diet, is that our bodies are not designed to have carbohydrates as their primary source of fuel but that stable, saturated fats are the most efficient fuel for our bodies. In particular, the paleo diet is based on the belief that it is important for our health to eat as our ancestors did. It revolves around optimally nourishing the body by avoiding bread, pasta, sugar, legumes, grain products, and salt. Low-carb eating is not just a 'calorie-based' diet but a way of eating that focuses on the consumption of vegetables, nuts, seeds, eggs, unprocessed foods, and, of course, the intake of healthy fats instead of carbohydrates.
