Aerobic dance becoming popular among Cambodian people, especially those who are aged around 45 to 60 years old. They form up a team with one or two instructors, and they do the dancing every evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. something.
The main purpose of their activities, hoping to burn some calories and reduce they belly fats for healthy living as well as better body shape. However, it seems like their objectives are hardly to achieve. Why is that so? Based on my observation, below are some possible reasons that could lead them not to achieve their objectives:
- Commitment: Some people they really want to reduce their body weight, burn their belly fats, however, they seem do not have a clear and strong commitment. They somehow, do not follow it and normally the rate of their action drop within two months, and they return to their previous hobbits and life again.
- Lack of attention of what they are eating: Principle of losing body weight, and belly fats is to limit your high caloric dense food such as fast food, fried food etc. However, I can say that nearly 60% of aerobic dancer will have something to eat after their dancing finish and clearly you will see a lot of mobile cart that selling fast foods stand, and selling around the park. They will never be able to loss any calories because this action.
- Lack of understanding about their food: Knowing how to eat is good, however, understanding about your foods is another story. You need to have a certain level of understanding about the calories that you’ll get from your food and calculate precisely in order to reduce a certain weight. Example: look at the food that some famous boxing athlete eat, especially, Many PACMAN Pacquiao, his foods are healthy and very optimal.
- They need to know that “aerobic alone is not enough”: Aerobic dancing look so ideally in reducing weight and burning belly fats, however, just practicing aerobic dancing alone will enough since aerobic dancing itself will not burn much calories and fats.
These are some reasons that observed why most of aerobic dancers still could not reduce any weight, some people even increase their body weight instead of losing it.
Weight reduction principle: Calories in = calories out
