6 Simple Steps To Weight Loss
If you follow these simple steps, you will lose weight and that is guaranteed.
Set Short Term Goals
If you have a lot of weight to lose, you need to make smaller short term goals. This allows you to have successes along your journey. That will keep you motivated, so instead of having a goal of losing 50 pounds, shoot for 5. Then make another goal.
Get A Calorie Tracker
Without a calorie tracker, you will eat more than you think. Tracking is essential and calorie apps are free, so take advantage.
Get A Food Scale
Most people are painfully unaware of proper food portions. If you want to lose weight, you need to track properly and that means good portioning. Get a scale and put it to good use.
Start Resistance Training
Without a program of resistance training, much of the weight that you lose will be muscle. There are dozens of different work out programs out there. Find one that works for you.
Think In Weeks
Think about your calorie deficit with weekly terms. If you want to lose a pound in a week, shoot for eating 3500 calories over the course of the week. If you make a mistake one day, you have not ruined your diet.
When you reach one of your smaller short term goals, assess how much weight you really need to lose. Your goal weight might not be what you think, it could be higher.
