Losing weight is always a challenge as you need to cut on something, completely refuse from some products or follow a pre-planned menu.
Anyway, you need to sacrifice something in order to get your body fit.
Striving to make this change simple, the vast majority of people choose to count calories instead of following some specific eating plans.
Following the reviews of users and recommendations of doctors, it is a beneficial and healthy way to reduce weight, but it requires much patience and motivation.
Probably the first thing you need to do is download a calorie counter to your smartphone or tablet.
Smart and easy.
Additionally, you need to estimate the approximate number of calories you should consume to lose weight.
It is also simple to do online and the only information you need is:
- Daily activity.
On average, a woman requires around 2,000 calories a day in order to keep her current weight, while she needs to reduce it to 1,500 to get rid of 1 pound every week.
The tendency for males is similar, but the numbers are 2,500 and 2,000 correspondingly.
Keep in mind that these numbers are just average, not universal, and you will have your individual index.
Still, calorie reduction and counting may be too complicated.
Follow simple tips that will help you make this idea a routine:
- Get more protein as it helps to cut cravings, decrease appetite and enhance the body ability to burn calories;
- Forget about fresh juices and sugary soft drinks;
- Drink more plain water;
