Overweight or obesity has become a major global health problem. In Europe, it affects almost a third of the population and obesity has already reached epidemic proportions. It is particularly prevalent among children and young people. Being overweight is the cause of many serious ailments: cardiovascular disease, stroke, fatty hepatosis, diabetes mellitus, haemorrhoidal nodules, metabolic disorders and more. This leads to changes in the bone system, which causes rheumatic joint pain and arthrosis, particularly in the knee and hip joints. Spinal diseases also develop.
How do I determine the optimum weight?
The most common method for determining overweight is to calculate the body mass Index (BMI) according to the formula: BMI = weight (kg): height (m)2.
For example, if a person weights 54 kg and a height of 1,62 m, the body mass index is: 54 kg: (1,62 x 1,62) = 54 : 2,6244 = 20,576.
The calculation helps determine if there is insufficient body weight, normal body weight, excess body weight or obesity:
Causes of overweight:
One of the causes of obesity is an increase in sugar consumption. Sugar is often found not only in sweetened drinks and juices, but also in yoghurts, bread, breakfast cereals, sauces, dairy products, semi-finished products, meat products and elsewhere. Food producers often replace sugar with different sweeteners, giving the false impression of the health of the product. Trans fats, preservatives and sweeteners present in food alter the gut microbiome and have a significant influence on metabolism.
Today, more people eat out, eating a lot of fatty foods, too many sweets, refined white flour products and other fast snacks that lack fibre, vitamins and minerals. Taste warts are often used to the increased flavour and forgot the flavour of natural food, plus a larger body mass requires more energy consumption and more and more food to provide it.
Hormones are produced in the body that are responsible for sate and hunger. Grelin is a hunger hormone that moves in the blood and sends signals to the brain to make a person feel hungry. Levels of greline increase before meals when the stomach is empty and decrease shortly after. Leptin, on the other hand, is a sate hormone and its main function is long-term energy regulation. Leptin goes into the brain's hypothalamus and informs the body that there is enough energy and no need to keep eating. Concentrations of this substance increase when fat stocks increase, giving a sate signal to the brain. People with obesity have very high levels of leptin, which carries the risk of the body becoming resistant to it - the brain would no longer respond to signals sent by leptin. This resistance can be reduced by regular use of balanced fiber.
RTS FIBER contains soluble and insoluble fibers in a balanced proportion. RTS FIBER products have high nutritional value, so feeling hungry doesn't come that soon. The fiber complex effectively restores and maintains the gut microbiome, promotes metabolism and the body's natural defences.
Metabolism plays a major role in weight control. The faster metabolism is, the more effective calories are burned and less fat accumulates. If metabolism is slower, calories will burn slower and accumulate as fat. Metabolic activity determines how quickly the body loses excess kilograms or grows muscle mass.
Weight changes also affect diets. Choosing a diet that promises rapid weight loss often disrupts your metabolism, and weight returns rapidly after your diet. Diets that exclude specific product groups such as milk, cereals, meat and other products are often advertised. Following such diets, the body is starting to lack enzymes capable of breaking down the excluded product. The longer the product is removed from the menu, the longer it takes for the body to redevelop the necessary enzymes, so allergic reactions appear when you resume eating these products. In this way, we can intolerate food for ourselves, and it takes time and patience to get the body used to this group of products again. Nutrient, vitamin and mineral deficiency can occur in the body during a strict diet.
We recommend avoiding strict diets. It's better to eat everything but with a measure. The first step is to evaluate your menu and choose a diet that matches your lifestyle.
We recommend that the RTS FIBER soluble and insoluble fiber complex be included in your daily diet – it improves gastrointestinal function, activates metabolism, reduces the hunger for sweets, and supplies the body with vitamins and minerals, 1,3 - 1,4 beta glucans support the body's natural defences.
Balanced fiber creates a sense of satiety, filling space in the stomach. They slow down nutrient absorption, normalizing blood sugar levels and preventing cholesterol from depositing in blood vessels.
RTS FIBER W cleans and arranges intestinal function, reduces constipation, and prevents cholesterol from depositing into blood vessels and liver.
RTS FIBER G restores and maintains reserves of vitamins and minerals, attracts and drains excess fluid from the body.
RTS FIBER B improves pancreatic function and normalizes blood sugar levels.
RTS FIBER Y promotes metabolism and supplies the body with the necessary amino acids and contains natural vitamin D.
RTS FIBER APi has an anti-parasitic effect - it helps to eliminate parasites and toxins from the body.
RTS TUCA CAO is a great treat for a coffee break. Pamper yourself with a delicious and healthy chocolate drink. RTS TUCA cao has a low glycaemic index and can be used by diabetic patients and people with overweight problems.
We recommend taking the RTS FIBER fiber complex also between meals, thus reducing your intake of empty calories and eliminating the risk of weight gain. Regular use of RTS FIBER products improves metabolism, reduces fatigue, and purifies taste and smell.
