What does it Really Take to Lose Weight?

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Losing weight isn't easy, but understanding how much activity it takes to lose 1 lb is important knowledge to help you lose 5lbs or even lose 10.

For every pound you want to lose, you'll need to eliminate 3,500 calories--through eating less, working out more or, for the most effective and healthy approach, a combination of the two. The good news is that your body burns energy just by being alive (each person's amount varies), so cutting a few hundred calories through diet and exercise will be enough to get you into a smaller size.

Not losing weight? You may be underestimating the number of calories you eat in any given day. Track your meals and calculate your calories burned working out. Pay attention to what you are drinking. Most people don't think about their beverages, but most have lots of calories.

It is recommended that you trim your calorie intake to 1,500 calories per day--no fewer, since eating too little can throw your metabolism off. In order to drop weight faster, you need to increase your activity. You'll burn more energy, which will bump up your calorie deficit.

You need to increase your metabolism to lose weight and fat once and for all. By combining nutrition, resistance training, cardio respiratory exercise, and personal assistance you will be on your way to the new, healthier and slimmer you.
