Guidelines for Losing Weight

Losing weight is not an easy feat, I struggled to lose for years and to be honest with you, I still do at times, all these years I gained some experience on the best ways to lose weight and here are my guidelines for losing weight.

Set a realistic weight loss goal.

The first step to weight loss is to set up the realistic weight loss goal, you need to know exactly how many pounds do you want to get rid off, you can just say I want to lose weight you need to know exactly how much pounds do you need to lose.

Set a realistic time frame

After setting your goals, do you need to decide when you are going to accomplish it, do you need to set a realistic time frame here, you can’t say that do you want to lose 20 pounds in one day, that is impossible.

You can decide to lose 1 pound per week and come up with a plan on how to make that happen.

Examine Current Exercise and Activity Patterns

Exercise is the other half of the weight loss equation. The best way to manage your weight permanently is to combine a program of regular exercise with a balanced, low-fat diet.

If you’re a very sedentary person you can start small by just walking outside your house for 5 minutes or even 2 minutes, and increasing gradually to 30 minutes or one hour per day.

If you’re obese you need to check out with your doctor or physician before starting any type of exercises.

 Keep a food diary for a week

Many people who feel that they ‘hardly eat anything at all’ will be amazed at their hidden or unintentional eating activities. Simple changes to cut out unnecessary eating or unneeded portions sizes can make a long term difference.

Lose weight slowly

If loss of body fat is required, plan for a realistic rate of loss of about 0.5kg-1kg/1-2lb per week. Any more than this and you risk losing muscle and depleting your glycogen reserves (fuel for the working muscle).

To lose 0.5kg/1lb per week, you need to create an energy deficit of 3500kcal. So, by eating 500 fewer calories per day, you will lose 0.5kg/1lb per week. Increasing your energy expenditure will increase your weight loss further. It is a good idea to set short term and long term goals.

Reduce your fat intake

Remember that fat contains more calories (9kcal/g) than carbohydrate or protein (4kcal/g) so cutting down on high-fat foods quickly reduces your calorie intake. Swap high-fat foods for low fat, nutritious alternatives.
