Rather healthy than slim: why you shouldn't focus on your weight!

  1. One day you look in the mirror and you decide: time to really get rid of that belly. And so you start dieting. Less calories, more diet products, no more fats, just a little hunger… Within a few weeks you will see that your belly fat is indeed starting to decrease significantly.

  1. Nice result, right? Well… maybe less beautiful than you think. You forget with this method to also pay a little attention to your health. And really: you'd rather be healthy than slim! Why? We'll explain it to you in this blog.

Losing weight to lose weight

  1. Many people who want to lose weight have one goal in mind: to become slimmer. And that mainly means burning the fat reserves that you have built up all over your body. The only way to do that is to eat less calories than you consume daily.

  1. The often chosen approach is therefore: get rid of everything that contains a lot of calories! Fat products leave the house. Light drinks, dairy and snacks? Fine! Low-calorie meal replacements? Even better! And that you are hungry now and then? Well, anything to get rid of that rotten fat.

Low calorie is not the same as healthy

  1. The problem with that focus on calories is that it quickly leads to unhealthy choices. Because contrary to popular belief, lean food is really not always healthier. Just think: a biscuit is slimmer than a handful of almonds, and fruit sprinkles are slimmer than oily fish. But what's better for you?

  1. The health value of a product is not determined by the calories it contains. Rather, you look at the amount of useful nutrients: vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids, fiber, phytonutrients… All things that you miss completely when you focus on calories.

What is your goal really?

  1. To see why that is a problem, we need to take a closer look at your goal. Well, you want to lose weight. Why? â € œTo get slimmerâ € is probably the first answer on your mind. But why do you want to get slimmer?

  1. After all, most people have the same goal: they want to be happier and more satisfied with themselves. Losing weight is above all a means to achieve that. And that's not surprising, because we are bombarded with commercials every day telling us that being slim is the way to be happy.

Slim doesn't make you happy…

  1. Unfortunately, that's just not always true. You can still fit neatly into a size XS, but if you are constantly tired due to a vitamin deficiency, how satisfied will you be? If you have lost your belly fat, but still have to take the medication because of organ fat? Or if, in exchange for your figure, you spend all day eating up your hunger?

  1. An hourglass figure is simply not a direct way to happiness, however unfortunate that may be. If you have to choose, in the end you would rather be healthy than slim.

 € ¦ and not healthy

  1. And just to be clear: no, being slim is really not automatically healthier. As mentioned, if you lose weight in an unhealthy way, it leads to all kinds of shortages. In addition, unhealthy slim people often have a lot of invisible organ fat. Very bad for you in the long run.

  1. Conversely, being fatter isn't always as bad as you think. Sure, morbid obesity is no fun. But if you exercise regularly and eat healthy, those few extra pounds really won't kill you. In fact, you are probably healthier than a slim person with an unhealthy lifestyle.

Better healthy than slim

  1. So what is the moral of this whole story? If you want to feel better about yourself, you'd rather be healthy than slim. Being thin and unhealthy causes a lot of inconveniences, while you are often fine with being fatter and healthy.

  1. And of course the two are not mutually exclusive. In fact, if you start to eat healthier, you will very often automatically lose weight. Nevertheless, we recommend that you keep the focus on health. The other way around, it doesn't work so well: if you focus purely on weight loss, it often doesn't make you healthier!
