The simplest method to lose weight.
No science mumbo jumbo.
No complicated formulas.
No huge changes.
Just some conscious effort, awareness and a few minutes of your precious time a day.
This is how easy it is to lose weight...
Work out how many calories you need a day to maintain weight.
Eat less than that everyday.
That is actually all you need to do.
Does it matter if you eat 2 bowls of asparagus and have avacado on toast versus a bowl of coco pops and a bacon sandwich?
If weight loss is the only thing you want to concentrate on, then no technically it does not matter.
Eating unhealthy food all the time isn’t good for various health reasons.
You don’t need me to tell you that. But if you want to lose weight initially, then over time start to consider some healthier options, this is a really good place to start.
It as nowhere near as overwhelming for you, to change your diet completely and swap all your shitty foods you enjoy for a tons of salad.
How To Work Out Your Calorie Intake:
1. Download MyFitnessPal from the AppStore
2. Enter your details and relevant data
3. Correctly input your activity level
4. Consume how many calories it tells you to eat everyday.
5. Lose weight successfully!
To begin with you will be required to provide:
- Activity level
- Your goal (Lose weight)
The number comes up right there in green.
All you need to do is hit that target.
If it’s set to lose weight it will give you the number of calories you need to consume per day, to lose weight.
All you need to do is count them calories.
Do not cheat by trying to estimate them on how they look appearance wise.
Actually weigh your food or scan the barcodes and it will tell you the nutritional information and number of calories.
Make sure you put the right quantity or serving size in when inputting the data of each food item.
When you decide to become more advanced and confident with it, you can start working out your micronutrient percentages:
Then you will know how many calories and what percentage of each micronutrient you will need. All of which will be worked out for you by typing it on or scanning the barcode on the food label.
The app is absolutely FREE.
It is very simple to use.
As a long term strategy, more requirements will be needed such as vitamin intake, knowing the difference between good and bad fats, regulation of blood sugars etc and a whole host of other variables which is more complex.
This is somewhere to start for absolute beginners that are overwhelmed by all the different perspectives and information out there.
You might read this and you’re knowledge may be way beyond this.
This is for the people who are not sure where to start.
Once you have worked your calorie intake out after a few weeks or so you won’t need to type it in as much, because you’ll already know how many calories are in your foods.
But you have to earn that knowledge first by typing it in for a bit.
