Weight Loss and Calories

Eat fewer calories than your body burns during the day.

It takes 3,500 calories to lose a pound. That means that if you consume 2,000 calories during the day, you will need to burn 5,500 calories in order to lose one pound. Most people only burn a fraction of a pound per day.

Don’t starve yourself.

Losing weight is all about eating healthy foods, according to correct portions, at the right times. If you starve yourself, your body will prime itself for deprivation and begin to store fat, almost like a bear before hibernation. Eat well in the morning, and progressively less as the day wears on.

Don’t expect to lose all your weight immediately.

Weight loss takes time. If you shed a couple pounds a week, consider yourself very successful. Most people who try to lose serious weight get discouraged and quit just as the real battle begins because they don’t see real results. Stay in the fight for the long haul.
