Losing weight only means to have a calorie deficit every day. It’s much easier than you’ve been led to believe, as long as you think about it the right way
Some numbers:. . A reasonable weight loss goal is 1.5 pounds per week. It’s 78 pounds in a year, and you can easily lose more. To do this, you need a 750 calorie deficit each day.
One way to do this is to eat 750 fewer calories each day. Another is to burn 750 more. The best method is a combination of the two. Aim for 500 fewer calories of food eaten, and 250 more calories burned from exercise.
You’re probably eating 5 to 6 times per day. If you only shave off 100 calories per time you eat, you have achieved your goal. This is easily accomplished by having slightly smaller portions, and eat a little healthier foods. You just need to make very small changes that add up to a lot during the day
Next you should try to burn 250 more calories each day than you usually do. One way to do this is to just be more active around the house, in the manner fit into your lifestyle. You can also take a 30 minute walk every day, or just march in place while watching TV. You can break up your workout into small segments when you have a free moment, but do at least 10 minutes at a time is best. During the day, it is not difficult to burn an extra 250 calories
If you do all this, so on average, you will consistently lose 1.5 pounds per week. It is much easier than it seems. I was overweight for 35 years, and then I started to lose weight after I followed these simple steps. You can do it, too.
Tips and Warnings
Do not get discouraged. If you “rotate”, just get right back on track immediately.
Do not get caught up in counting calories. If you get mad, you’re more likely to give up. Just eat a little less food than you normally do and do some better food choices. You do not need to be on an intense diet or exercise to lose weight.
Please be patient. It may take some time to start seeing results, but long-term weight loss will average out.
Always check with your doctor about any aspect of your health.
