When it comes to weight loss, a lot of people are confused about where to direct their attention — whether the focus should be on shedding a few kilos or should they lose inches from their belly and arms.
Nutritionist Azra Khan answers this question on Instagram. In a video, she explains that if you lose weight, you lose fat, muscle weight, water weight, etc. “But if you are losing inches, you are losing pure fat,” she says.
According to her, losing fat is always more beneficial than losing weight. “So, focus on that,” she suggests.
Khan explains in the caption that weight is just a number. “It is dependent on not just the hard work you put in, but also when you have had your last meal, your period’s timing, what clothes you are wearing, if you are bloated or not.”
“Just because you don’t see progress on the weighing scale, don’t think your hard work and efforts are useless,” she adds.
You can take pictures on an everyday basis of the progress made, know your body measurements, know about your BMI to keep your body fat percentage in check.
“These parameters are important,” Khan concludes.
