Calorie Counting - Get More for Less
Lose Weight Calorie Counting
Losing weight fast through a calorie counting diet is easy; you have to create a calorie deficit. If you consume less calories than you burn in a day there will be lost weight. 3500 calories = 1 pound of body fat; a great way for natural weight loss.
The basic formula for weight loss is to reduce your maintenance calories each day by 500 calories. By creating a 500 calorie deficit over the course of seven days you would have burned 3500 calories; 1 pound of body fat loss in a week.
MyFitnessPal has a great tool for determining your maintenance calories. It is my personal calorie counting website where I log my food, exercise and keep up with what my calorie deficit should be because it does change as your weight changes. It also comes as a downloadable app and I make use of it daily.
This easy weight loss trick is the key to losing weight and keeping it off. If you do integrate healthy eating and exercise into your life you will see natural weight loss that changes your life.
