Can you really lose weight effectively with a hula hoop?
Lose weight with a Hula Hoop
It is possible to lose weight with a hula hoop, but there are a few things to consider first. First of all, you have to understand how you can lose weight and how the Hula Hoop can effectively help you to lose weight. Let's start by saying: The Hula Hoop weight loss experiences show that you can achieve your dream figure through hooping.
How do you lose weight?
No matter what diet we follow or what sport we do - in order to lose weight, fewer calories must be supplied to the body than it burns. Only when the body receives fewer calories than it actually burns does it begin to access our unwanted fat reserves and break them down. So if you start eating less and healthier or increase your energy needs by exercising more, you will lose weight.
How much weight can I lose with the Hula Hoop?
To understand this better, it is interesting to know that to lose 1 kilo of body fat you should save about 7000 kcal. Here the Hula Hoop can help enormously. If you only wanted to lose weight through diet, this would take a very long time or could be connected with a lot of renunciation and that is not healthy in the long run. The reason for this is our calorie consumption. Here we distinguish between the basal metabolic rate and the performance metabolic rate. The basal metabolic rate is what we consume in a state of complete rest. That is, without any movement. This is what we consume solely through our organs. This varies from person to person and can be calculated based on gender, height, body weight and body fat percentage. The power metabolism results from our movement. This means all movement. The walk to the desk in the morning, the walk in the afternoon or the hula hoop workout in the evening. If you add up the basal metabolic rate and the performance metabolic rate, you get the total metabolic rate. If you eat more calories than your total metabolic rate, you will gain weight in the long run. However, if you eat fewer calories than the total metabolic rate, you will lose weight.
Basal metabolic rate = 1500 kcal (daily consumption without any exercise)
Metabolic rate = 300 kcal (little exercise)
Total metabolic rate = basal metabolic rate + performance metabolic rate = 1800 kcal
Calorie intake through diet = 1700 kcal
Calorie deficit = total metabolic rate 1800 kcal - calorie intake 1700 kcal = 100 kcal
Person A therefore has a daily deficit of 100 kcal. A deficit makes you lose weight. To lose 1 kilogram of body weight, you have to burn about 7000 kcal. With 100 kcal per day, this is 700 kcal per week and therefore person A needs ten weeks to save 7000 kcal and thus lose 1 kilogram.
Unfortunately, person A does very little exercise and therefore has a very low performance metabolism. Person B has decided to lose weight with the help of a hula hoop and exercises for 1 hour a day. The rest of the values remain unchanged.
Basal metabolic rate = 1500 kcal
Power metabolism = 800 kcal (this increases significantly through 1 hour of Hula Hoop training per day)
Total metabolic rate = 2300 kcal
Calorie intake = 1700 kcal
Calorie deficit = 2300 kcal - 1700 kcal = 600 kcal
Person B thus consumes 4200 kcal in one week and thus does not even need 2 weeks to lose 7000 kcal for 1 kilo of body fat. Person B has thus eaten the same as person A, but has much quicker successes and it should not be forgotten that person B also does something good for his body through exercise and builds up muscles. More muscle in turn leads to an increase in the basal metabolic rate, because muscles also consume calories at rest.
IMPORTANT: This is an example. The values vary from person to person.
How long do I have to exercise with the Hula Hoop to lose weight?
To lose weight successfully, you do not have to exercise for an hour every day. However, it is advisable to train regularly and, in the best case, to practice every day. If you are just starting hooping, a maximum of 10 minutes per day is sufficient. This is because the connective tissue must first get used to the massage of the hoop on the abdomen and hips. If the technique works and you have no pain when hooping, the training time can be increased. In order to see the first successes soon and to be able to increase your performance metabolism properly, 30-45 minutes of hooping are optimal. Please make sure that you do not only hoop in one direction, but also in the other direction. This is the only way to address the muscles evenly.
The right diet for losing weight with the Hula Hoop
The example has not only shown how important it is to move more, but also that losing weight only works if you also adjust your diet. Because the Hula Hoop training does not lead to weight loss if you then eat far too many calories and thus there is no deficit. To keep the body fit and vital, it is important to eat a balanced and healthy diet. However, this does not mean that it is not okay to eat a pizza or ice cream. True to the motto: "Balance is the key"!
A balanced diet includes above all enough fruit and vegetables, healthy fats and sufficient protein. Unhealthy fats, which are increasingly found in fried foods or fatty sausages, should be avoided. Instead, you should reach more often for healthy sources of fat such as avocados or nuts. You should also avoid foods that are full of sugar as much as possible. These increase the blood sugar level enormously, which quickly drops again shortly afterwards and can trigger cravings. There are many forms of diets. But regardless of whether you choose a low-carb diet, calorie counting or intermittent fasting, you should ultimately go for what you can do in the long term. The bottom line is that all diets have one thing in common - they lead to a calorie deficit. Now the only question is what is the easiest way to achieve this. It is recommended to opt for a protein-rich diet, as proteins are particularly satisfying for a long time and can cause fewer cravings. You should stay away from crash diets. These can be detrimental to our health and usually lead to the undesirable yo-yo effect.
