My first steps to losing weight
First thing you have to know is exactly how many pounds do you want to lose. What’s my target? Do I want to lose 10, 20, or maybe 50 pounds. You have to know this; having a target weight loss goal will make losing weight very easy. For example, a man weighs 200 pounds and wants to set a goal to lose 30 pounds in three months. Now he knows he has to lose 2 to 3 pounds consistently every week to reach his goal. If your losing more than 2 to 3 pounds a week than you can reach your goal faster. And reaching your goal is what you want.
I want to reduce my calorie intake
Now you know your weight loss goal you can start figuring out what’s your calorie intake. A calorie calculator is a great tool to use to determine how many calories you need for weight loss. For example, if you maintain 2422 calories a day and you want to lose weight you would have to reduce your calories to around 1938 a day. You want to be careful and not reduce your calories to much, which can result in feeling sluggish, fatigue and often irritable.
I need a meal plan
Here comes the fun part. You can design a meal plan to fit your lifestyle. You used the calorie calculator and figured out how many calories you need for weight loss every day. You want to divide your calories into 6 meals. You can add more or less calories to each meal but sticking close to your calorie intake. The main thing is giving yourself a plan to work with. The reason for six meals is to keep your metabolism up which will help you lose weight, and eating every two to three hours so your not as hungry in between meals. Keeping your hunger urges down low.
Protein shake diet
Adding a protein shake diet is great for you. Easy to mix, just add water and your protein powder. You can use a blender or a shaker cup.
