Then you can mingle with you friends with your head held high, and enjoy the compliments from all your family and friends. (Though some of them will be slightly envious and will want to know your secret!) The truth is, it is really quite easy to lose a stone of fat. Yet so many people turn to the latest fad diets to help them achieve their weight loss goals. Often, instead of losing weight they gain weight, ending heavier than when they started the diet. And then move on to the next fad diet. Talk about head butting a brick wall. But with a little knowledge, understanding the simple truth of weight loss, you will be able to lose a stone of fat. Then, once you have lost a stone, you can lose another, and can in fact keep losing until you reach your ideal weight.
Determine how much weight to lose for the body of your dreams
Do you know how much you are overweight? Do you know how many pounds you need to lose to reach a healthy weight, to look and feel absolutely fantastic in all your clothes? You can use the BMI Calculator to estimate whether you are overweight, and if so by how much. It does have its limitations, but for the majority of us it will certainly give us a good education.
How to lose a stone, and feel happier than ever before
It is possible to lose that weight and feel good about yourself. With a little knowledge, you could have that body of your dreams. Understand how weight loss works and you will soon see that excess weight fall off. The average calorie intake per day, that is the average calories burnt per day, is 2000 calories for a women and about 2500 calories per day for a man. These calories sustain all bodily functions and daily physical activity. I say average calories for women and men because we are all different. The exact number of calories you need a day depends on many factors, such as age, height, weight, activity level, fitness level, etc. In fact, our weight and physical activity level changes, to some extent, on a daily basis. So an average figure to encompass everyone is the best we can do. Why is this important to know? If you were to eat more than your daily average calorie requirement, then over time you will gradually begin to put on weight. You will become fatter. All those excess calories will be converted to fat, and then stored under your skin and around your organs. How much fat will depend on how many calories over these average daily requirements that you eat. On the other hand, if you were to eat less than these average daily calorie requirements you will begin to lose weight. You begin to eat away at your fat stores. This is because to make up the difference between the energy you consume through your food and the energy your body needs to function, your body will use your fat stores as a ‘top up’. Consuming less than your body requires is known as calorie deficit. So you can see why reducing your calorie intake will lead to weight loss. Sure, there’s a little more to it than that as you have to eat the right foods. You can’t eat 1500 calories or chocolate each day and expect to lose weight. But let me continue… To summarize, If you burn more calories than you consume, then you will lose weight.
I can’t over state this. If you can just understand this, live by it, burn more calories than you eat, then you will have no problem in reaching your ideal weight. It really is that easy.
How Your Calorie Deficit Will Give You The Body You Deserve!
Imagine standing infront of the mirror and thinking Jeez, I look good! Well this really can happen for you. In 1 pound of human fat there is 3500 calories of energy. This means you need to burn 3500 calories to lose 1 pound of your fat, or in other words a calorie deficit of 3500 calories. Then, when you jump on the scales, you will show 1 pound lighter. Simple. So, spread over a week, you need a daily calorie deficit of 500 calories to burn 1 pound per week. If you stick with a daily calorie deficit of 500 calories, then you would lose a stone of fat in 14 weeks. That is really quite amazing. So for women, an average daily calorie intake of 1500 calories will equate to a 1 pound per week weight loss. And similarly for men, but an average daily calorie intake of 2000 calories. Cutting your calorie consumption by 500 calories per day is really the upper limit though. You shouldn’t cut calories by much more than this. If you do, there is a very good chance you will start to feel sluggish and lethargic, and might end up with burn out. However, this does not mean you can only lose a stone every 14 weeks. There are other ways to increase calorie deficit.
Maximizing Your Deficit to Help You Lose a Stone, and Always Look Great In Your Clothes
You can look fantastic in all the clothes that you wear, and have people admire the new you! And you can have this sooner than you might think. Calorie deficit leads to weight loss. But more importantly, the greater your deficit the quicker you will lose weight! The other way to increase your deficit is to exercise. And performing the right kind of exercise can burn an incredible amount of calories. You have to start off easy, with 300 calorie sessions if you are new to exercising. But you will easily build up to 1000 calorie sessions within a few weeks of training. And then you will watch your fat literally disappear. But don’t stop there. Just become generally more active. Get off the bus one stop earlier. Take the stairs instead of the lift. Walk around whilst on the phone, as opposed to sitting down chatting away. The latter actually has a geeky name. It is known as non-exercise activity thermogenesis, or NEAT for short. Basically it refers to all the extra calories you can burn just by moving around without specifically exercising. It can amount up to several hundred extra calories burned every single day! Hopefully you can see, from understand the simple truth of weight loss, that to lose weight you only have to be in calorie deficit. Follow these simple methods of increasing your calorie deficit and you will lose 1 stone in no time at all.
