Easiest Way to Lose Weight!!!

There are 18,000+ diet plans out there. If one of them worked, wouldn't there only be one? Yes, you can say that some work, but some work for certain people and God did not create us all as equals, so what worked for your friend may not work for you.

Here is the most simplistic way to lose weight. Grab a pen and a notebook and write down what you are eating, the total calories for that meal and then add up to total calories for the whole day. After doing this for a week or two, you will educate yourself on what meals have too many calories and which meals don't have enough.

The best way to found out how much you should be eating is to find out what your BMR is. BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate. Your BMR is how many calories your body burns on its own in a given day with out exercise. You can figure out your BMR here by clicking this link: BMR Calculator.

Now how do you figure out how much you are to eat? It's simple. Think of the Law of Thermodynamics. If your body burns more than it consumes, you will lose weight. It takes 3500 calories to burn a pound of body fat, so figure out between exercise and diet how many calories you should be consuming and from exercise, how much you should be burning. However, it is not recommended to eat below 1400 calories.

An example is: Joe's BMR is 2000 and Joe likes to eat, so we will allow Joe to eat 2000 calories. But...that means if Joe wants to lose a pound a week, he needs to be burning 500 calories a day through exercise. If Joe wants to speed up the process, he could either burn more than 500 calories in a day or eat a little less each day.

It is that simple! Good luck and....

Happy Training!
