Pre curser, I know there are a lot of health conditions that make weight loss more difficult for some people, however, for everyone else, I honestly believe we over complicate it.
There are so many diets on the market these days, Whole 30, Ketosis, Paleo, Gluten free and so on..
There are so many quick fixes on the market these days, wraps, detoxes, teas, weight loss pills and juices..
You see, it's so easy to get overwhelmed and make your weight loss journey more complicated than it needs to be.
So allow me to be super brief in this blog and keep it simple.
To lose weight you must have a caloric deficit.
Meaning, you must burn off more calories than you consume in a day.
Weight gain is caused from eating more than you burn off.
Weight loss is due to burning off more than you eat.
To see weight loss, you must have a caloric deficit of 500-750 calories.
For example, if you weigh 180 pounds, and you're eating a 2000 calorie diet and not exercising you won't see weight loss because you're not burning enough calories.
If you weigh 180 pounds, you're participating in an exercise program of at least 30 minutes per day and you're consuming 1500-1600 calories you will start to see weight loss.
Here's a calculation to estimate your caloric target:
Understanding the number of calories you should consume daily is KEY to your weight loss journey. Know this number, consume this number & exercise.
Keep it simple!
12 is a set number that represents a moderately active lifestyle.
450 represents the number of calories you will burn off in your workout + your daily activities.
(*Remember, just for your body to function it needs energy, this is called your resting metabolic rate. Burning off more than you eat does not mean consuming 1000 calories and burning 1500 calories.)
