There are endless resources on how to lose weight, but to optimize your strategies follow this guide:
1) Count your calories. The basic principle of weight loss is making sure the calories you consume are less than the calories you are burning. This leaves you in a caloric deficit, which leads to weight loss over time. A healthy caloric deficit for healthy individuals is around 500-1000 calories a day. This would lead to a 1 – 2 lbs weight loss per week.
2) Move. Whether you join a recreational basketball team, go for evening walks, or hit the gym — the goal is to burn calories and create a healthier body composition. Exercise can reduce stress, build lean tissue (like bone and muscle), and boost the immune system over time. All of these side effects will in turn help the body lose more fat mass, which is the goal!
3) Enjoy the Journey. Find what works for your body specifically to optimize your weight loss results. For some that might mean eating a lower carbohydrate diet and partaking in endurance training activities. For others it might mean finding different times throughout the day to take 10-minute walks or yoga practice to avoid a sedentary lifestyle. Every individual is different and unique and should take a personal approach to weight loss.
