Losing weight in and of itself is a hard thing to do for most people. There is no easy, permanent way to lose weight. The journey to making a new “You” is not a piece of cake (no pun intended) and it’s why most people do not have the body that they want. A lot of people go looking for the next fad diet, or new “tools to help with their weight loss. The truth that many people do not know or choose to outright ignore is that the only tool you need to lose weight was taught to you in second grade arithmetic.
This simple tool is addition and subtraction. It doesn’t matter if you eat no carbs or more low-glycemic index foods etc. The onyl thing that matters is how much you eat calories wise. You must burn the calories that you put in your body by eating, and that is the only way to lose weight. A pound of fat is around 3500 calories worth of energy. This means that if you wanted to lose say 10 pounds, you would need to accumulate a “deficit” of calories in your body equal to 35,000 calories.
Creating this deficit is simple but not easy. It’s simple because all you have to do is cut how much you eat based on your sedentary metabolism and exercise everyday to obtain a negative calorie total for that day. So say you needed to lose that 10 pounds, or 35,000 calories, in around 2 months. That means in 56 days you have to create a deficit of 35,000 calories, or a deficit of 625 calories a day. Usually this should come half from cutting down on eating and half from exercise. So everyday, you’d eat around 310 calories less than you normally would and exercise so that you burn another 310 calories (310 calories is equivalent to running about 2 miles at 6 mph). Now you know why its simple, but not easy.
So how do you know how much to cut down on eating? Well that depends on how much you would burn if you didn’t do any activity in your day. This is your resting metabolic rate, teenagers have high metabolic rates, about 2,500 calories a day. So they could eat that much, sit around and still not gain weight. Adults on the other hand have a metabolic rate of about 1,850 to 2,000 calories a day. You should also never really go below 1,200 calories a day, because if you do your body starts to go into “storage” mode, where it thinks there is a severe lack of food so it stores what you eat quickly into fat! You don’t want that! So figure out how much you want to lose, cut half of the required per day deficit for that goal from your eating habits as long as it doesn’t go below 1,200 calories. Exercise the rest of your daily quota off to meet your end of the day goals and your body WILL lose fat!
Furthermore, some people who want to lose weight don’t just rely on their diet and regular workouts. They also consider taking supplements with weight loss solutions. If you check resurge reviews, you can see how effective and helpful supplements are for people who want to lose weight.
You might still be waiting for the part where I say that all of this is the long way to do it and that the short way is to just take Pill “ABC” and give you a link. But it doesn’t work that way. You have to work to lose weight and reach your goal. Find support from family members and friends so you don’t get off track. Organize your goals and work towards it, it’ll pay off in the end!
