Lose Weight Effectively!
To lose weight is probably the most difficult process adults have to undertake – the unlucky adults, that is. To lose weight, all you basically need to do is burn more calories than you eat. It sounds so easy, but why are there so many people who have weight problems?
It is essential to note one of the basic rules to lose weight: to lose a pound of fat, you need to burn around 3500 calories in addition to the things you do daily. First off, you need to calculate your basal metabolic rate. The BMR is what your body needs to maintain normal functions like breathing and digestion. This is the minimum number of calories you need to eat each day. Then calculate your activity level to find out how many calories you burn while sitting, standing, exercising, etc.
Then, you should always keep track of how many calories you eat. You can have a food journal and try to be as accurate as possible. Then, take your BMR, add your activity calories and then subtract your food calories from your total. If you are eating more than you are burning, you will gain weight. If you are burning more than you eat, you will lose weight.
Now that you are aware of your daily calorie consumption, daily activities and BMR, you should be more careful in balancing all three aspects in order to get your desired results. You can lessen your caloric intake to lose weight or you can increase your activities in a day in order to burn more calories. You do not have to burn off one pound of fat instantly. The key here is to change your lifestyle gradually in order to effective lose weight and maintain that weight loss.
