Whether it’s for summer or just a life choice losing we all have times when we feel like we need to lose a few pounds. There are many fad and popular diets out there, like Keto, Paleo, liquid spiders and many others. To avoid the complications of rules and restrictions many people jump on the calorie. Punting method, the main rule? Just count your calories.
Now onto the math, to count calories you have to know your limit, it is recommended that the average person should eat around 2000 calories a day, though this is dependent on what you eat as well as the amount of calories. Some websites recommend that you eat 1500 calories day to ensure weight loss.
How it works. The idea is that you lose more calories than you put in, this is called a calorie deficit, if you stay in a calorie deficit than you will more than likely lose weight, it is why people of a bigger stature naturally lose more weight quicker.
Obviously a good way to stay in that deficit is exercise, a really good and almost underrated exercise is Yoga which can help you more in your weight loss journey.
If you’re looking at fat loss, high fat foods without sugar is the way to go. Sugar retains fat, whereas when you are in a sugar deficit, fat then is burned for energy increasing your fat loss. So to take away from this is;
Stay in a calorie deficit.
Reduce your sugar not your fat intake.
Try not to follow fad diets they do nothing and you bounce back into bad habits.
Stay healthy and enjoy results.
