Remember Susan Boyle, the dowdy 40-something UK woman who won Britain’s Got Talent in 2009? She has just stepped out looking leaner, fresher and younger. When asked how she managed to lose 28lbs and she revealed that she had to cut out the bad things in her food. Not only has that helped in making look good, but it has been good for her diabetes and the Asperger’s syndrome she suffers from.
Sometimes losing weight the right way is getting rid of bad eating habits. Susan Boyle’s weight loss was due to cutting out cookies and sweets. Here are simple things that will help you lose weight the right way: things that you should be doing if you want to lose weight fast and effectively:
1. Understand the calorie counting system and get it right
To lose weight, you need to reduce the number of calories you consume. However, what you put in you need to be able to burn. A calorie deficit is required for weight loss. This means you need to burn more calories than you consume. Some healthy foods contain more calories so you need to balance your meals but choose the foods with high-calorie content. There is no magic number you need to reduce your calorie intake. In the past 3,500 calories per week were believed to be the ideal amount that would result in a loss of 1lb per week but this does not work for everyone. Like Susan Boyle did, cut out refined sugars that contain more calories and eat vegetables. Eating too low calories can affect your muscle mass and your metabolism.
You should exercise, but don’t overdo it. During a weight loss diet, you will lose muscle mass as you lose fat. The amount of fat that you lose will be affected by the amount of exercise you put in. if you don’t exercise and are on a low calories diet, you might be losing muscle mass and affecting your metabolic rate. Over-exercising can cause problems impair the production of essential hormones like the adrenal hormone which could cause stress. Exercise should not stress you, it should be something you enjoy and look forward to if you hope to keep losing weight steadily.
3. Stay away from low-fat or diet foods
Low-fat food or diet foods are processed foods that could do the opposite of what they are meant to do. Most of these kinds of foods are loaded with sugar and preservatives that are bad for you. In addition, they give you the false assurance that because they are low fat, you can eat more than one serving. Choose fresh, unprocessed food.
