The Weight Loss Equation Simplified
by Jackie Burgmann, creator of "Hot at Home" - The Transformation Solution for People Who Hate The Gym
If you're trying to lose weight and are finding the massive amount of information (and misinformation) out there about how to do it best confusing to say the least, you're not alone.
There's an easy way
lose weight but for some reason the Diet, Fitness and Nutrition Industries and Marketers have
managed to confuse the subject so much that most people don't know where to turn to get the 'REAL' answer.
I'm here to tell you what that 'REAL' answer is:
Your calories consumed must be less than the calories your body needs to function on a day-by-day basis.
In other words, "Eat Less, Move More".
Here's the "Eat Less" part of the equation, simplified:
Don't stuff yourself with every meal ... or any "one" meal.
This might seem like a no-brainer when you read it but you'd be surprised how many people gorge at meal-time past the feeling of 'full' until they are stuffed, but wonder why they can't lose weight when they only eat one meal a day and starve the rest of the day.
Well, logically speaking, fat burning doesn't happen under these circumstances because that one meal was worth TWO days of calories and their body is unlikely to burn all of it off before their next huge meal the next day.
Even worse off are the people that eat lots of meals throughout the day and do the same thing with every meal.
And, give your body lots of reasons to burn calories (which is why most weight loss gurus preach that in order to lose weight, working out is a must, and they are 'mostly' right).
Which leads us to the "Move More" part of the equation:
You don't absolutely HAVE to work out to lose weight, but it sure helps.
You CAN lose weight by dieting alone, but exercising can make it happen faster by creating a bigger calorie deficit and help you get that 'toned and defined, fit look' that goes along with 'getting in shape' (dieting alone might just make you look like a smaller version of your current self, which may not actually be a 'fit' look).
If you work out, you're increasing the amount of calories your body needs to get you through the day. If you keep your caloric intake the same or lower than the amount your body needs to maintain your current weight, then you will automatically create a deficit by adding daily exercise.
Once you've implemented one or both of these strategies to create a 'calorie deficit' your body is then FORCED to take some of its energy from whatever energy you have stored within your body: namely... your FAT.
Take energy from your fat and the fat in your body is burned and therefore REDUCED! Yay!
This concept becomes even more powerful if you combine exercise and lowering your calories with proper nutrition ... this can help you further lower your daily caloric intake by a couple hundred calories, easily, without leaving you feeling hungry all the time.
Now you're in a deficit that can get you burning fat at an accelerated rate.
In order to do this, you should also look at the QUALITY of the calories you're consuming.
You don't want to feel starved, or deprived while you're doing this 'calorie deficit' thing so you're not suffering through this process, right?
The thing you really want to aim for is finding foods that will keep you feeling fuller longer (and this can be different kinds of foods for different people ... we aren't all cut from the exact same metabolic cloth here), and eat a little bit less than you need to satisfy your body's caloric needs ... and NOT MORE.
So ... what kinds of foods are the best so that you feel fuller, longer and not have to limit yourself to one
day or starving all day long every day?
Most people find that nutrient dense foods will make them feel fuller longer, as opposed to 'empty calories' that you find in most processed foods, fast foods and junk foods, refined flour and bakery goodies or sugary snacks.
So, look to fill up on lots of whole, natural vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds and eggs, lean meats and dairy plus seafood.
The closer to nature your food source is the more nutrient dense it will be. These types of foods also tend to be lower in calories than their processed brethren, so you can eat more of it and get fuller faster.
There's no end to the variety of yummy foods you can find in these categories to keep yourself feeling full and delight your tastebuds as well.
However, all that being said, it is not impossible to eat processed and junk foods and still lose weight as long as you're keeping your calories "IN" lower than your calories "OUT".
It's unlikely you'll be very healthy at your lower weight if you aren't giving your body the proper nutrients it needs so remember THAT when reaching for your next donut instead of a healthy salad. Also remember you won't be able to eat as MUCH junk food because of their extremely high caloric content.
So, if you want junk food, have it. But don't overdo it.
And, remember ... if you absolutely MUST have 'junk food' that day, it might just very well be your ONLY meal that day if it's worth your entire day's calorie allotment.
See what I mean?
... Easy ...
... No "Trick" !
'Calories In' MUST be less than 'Calories Out'.
Get that equation perfect and you WILL lose weight. Guaranteed.
