Weight Problems and Insecurities – With Calorie-Consciousness to more Self-Confidence, also at parties

Whether comfortably at home, or with some friends at the Christmas market, the holiday season offers many delicacies. When regular exercise is then neglected, it can lead to unwanted extra pounds around the hips. Women particularly tend to lose their self-confidence and let insecurities about their figure determine their daily life. If the weight-complexes become too dominant, even normally joyful events, such as Christmas or New Year’s parties, turn into uncomfortable experiences. But with a higher awareness of individual energy balance, everybody can keep their weight and self-confidence despite some delicious yuletide foods.

(businesspress24) - Weight and insecurities

Appearance plays an important role in society. Thus, appearance often also determines demeanour and self-confidence. Several behavioural studies conducted during the last few years and even decades have examined the connection between self-esteem and looks of a person. In this matter, women are especially influenced by their weight. In many cases, insecurities about weight gain already increase during childhood, and especially into adolescence. A lot of girls and young women feel more and more uncomfortable with their body with every pound gained. This behavioural scheme often continues as an adult. Whether on the job or at home – women with weight issues often lack self-esteem and a self-confident demeanour.

Energy balance and calorie-consciousness

People who feel insecure about their weight do not need to go on radical diets in order to become comfortable with their body again. For the purpose of healthy, well-balanced weight management, it is helpful to keep track of personal energy balance. Even though there are many different types of diets, they are all based on the same principle: Weight loss only occurs when more energy is burnt than consumed. This state is called negative energy balance. Of course, the relationship between energy consumption and expenditure differs from person to person individually, because of factors such as age, gender, weight and height. But there is no need to make complicated calculations to control personal energy balance. Digital tools, such as the CaloriScan from Omron Healthcare, reliably measure daily calorie consumption 24/7. Thanks to its 3-D sensor technology, the handy calorie counter differentiates every kind of movement and precisely calculates the amount of calories burnt. With conscious eating and the support of the CaloriScan, users always stay informed about their individual energy balance, and can influence it in order to achieve and then stabilise their dream weight. Thereby, insecurities about weight and figure can also be prevented during winter feasting-time, and Christmas or New Year’s parties can be enjoyed without complexes.
