Dietitian experts agree there are several strategies for the control of waist size and weight. Below are suggestions for each.
1. Increase total caloric intake.
Calorie restriction, or calorie restriction plus exercise, is the most effective way to increase your waist size and weight. In fact, the American College of Cardiology recommends caloric restriction for overweight adults and for anyone with a waist measurement of 40 inches or above.
For anyone who has a normal waist size, the benefits from caloric restriction and/or exercise will be greater over time. A 2,500-calorie a day maintenance diet, for example, will provide a 2.5-inch increase in waist size by the end of the year, and, over 10 years, an increase of 2 inches in waist size.
For someone with a normal waist size, a 4,000-calorie diet would likely provide 3 inches in waist size by the end of the year.
2. Eat more protein.
While protein has several health benefits, including helping you maintain energy, fighting diseases, helping you regulate blood sugar levels and increasing your metabolism, it can also increase your waist size and weight. For the best results, you should aim for a daily intake of 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.
Regular exercise may also increase your waist size but not as much as increasing your caloric intake. Regular physical activity can produce results in just a few minutes, and results tend to be consistent.
The American College of Cardiology recommends exercising at least 30 minutes three times a week for people with a waist measurement of 40 inches or taller.
