Losing weight isn’t rocket science. You just have to burn more Calories than what you take in. But it isn’t all that simple. Nobody would have had weight problems then. The secret to losing weight isn’t doing something drastic to see the desired effects. It is more about making those small changes everyday and you will surely benefit. The thing is to forget about instant results and settle in for long term plans.
Three thousand calories can be likened to one pound of fat. You couldn’t possibly lose all that in a single day. If you take things step by step, you can find out what exactly you need every day to get rid of those extra calories. And subsequently, lose the extra fat.
Calculate your BMI (body mass index) and BMR (basal metabolic rate). Your BMR tells you what your body needs to maintain normal functions like breathing and digestion. You need to eat a minimum number of calories each day. Your BMI gives you an average of what your body weight should be like, but it varies a lot. So be careful before you begin to lose weight. Treat it just like an indicator.
Keep track of all your activities. Use a calorie calculator to roughly find out how many calories you burn while you do your daily activities through the day. Be in control of what you eat. Crash dieting never works. What you need is a balanced diet which is enough for your body. Know all the nutritional information about your food. You automatically begin to eat better when you know what you are eating. Add up whatever has gone in due to your eating and gone out due to your exercising. Things will change when you are conscious about your habits.
It is extremely easy to gain weight without even knowing it. However, it is also just as easy to lose weight, even if it may seem really slow. Make small, sensible changes to your diet and activity levels. Don’t overdo things. What you do in the long term will eventually get you where you’d want to be.
