There are some steps that you diligently need to follow and you will start seeing results without a doubt. Let’s dive straight into it
Create a calorie deficit
First of all, you need to be in a calorie deficit.If you are someone who follows nutrition related news, you must be familiar with the term but let us understand what calorie deficit really means. Our body needs calories to work, and for that we need to eat ‘maintenance calories’ to be in the same weight.
To start your weight loss or fat loss journey, you need to create a calorie deficit by simply eating below your maintenance calories. For example, if your calorie deficit is 2000, then you need to eat around 1700 to 1800 calories per day and slowly you can reduce your calories to 1500. You can find out your maintenance calories on calorie calculator on web.You need not reduce your calorie intake below 1500 or 500 calories below your maintenance as our body needs to function properly. You can track your calories on apps like My FitnessPal, HealthifyMe.
Once you have defined your daily calorie intake, you need to start working out or indulge in some or the other fitness activity. Make sure you enjoy an activity that makes you feel great. If gymming excites you, do that, but if you love playing sports, pursue that.
Walk a minimum of 10,000 steps
Another great tool to amplify your weight loss journey is completing around 10,000 steps daily. It is a very simple thing to do and will help you burn some 400-500 calories daily, amounting to 2800-3500 calories in a week.
Focus on expending energy through basic tasks
Another thing which you can do is perform NEAT i.e. Non-exercise activity thermogenesis – this means you can simply take stairs rather then using the lift, use a cycle for transportation if you are going to a close distance, try to walk while talking on the phone, don’t sit too long and do some stretching through the day.
If you follow these simple steps for 3 months regularly, you will definitely lose weight and achieve your desired body.
