Losing Weight

Here you’ll find insights about losing weight. We all know that to lose weight, you must burn off more calories than you consume. And that a balanced diet and exercise combined are a healthy and effective way to lose weight.

But there’s more to losing weight than just understanding the theory.

Losing weight can be challenging. There are thousands of different diet plans all claiming to be the best way to lose weight.  Many of them make it too complicated – keeping things simple is the best method of losing weight.

To lose/burn fat you need to eat less calories than your body uses. When your body doesn’t have enough calories for energy it uses the energy stored as glycogen in your muscle first, then your fat stores.

  • To lose 1lb of fat per week you need to eat 500 calories per day less than you burn.
  • To lose 2lb of fat per week you need to eat 1,000 calories per day less than you burn

How many calories do I need per day?

The amount of calories you need depends on your gender, age, height, weight and activity. Use this calculator to calculate the amount of calories you need per day. Then take 500 calories off to lose 1lb per week, and 1,000 calories to lose 2lb per week.

How do I count calories?

Most foods today have the calories printed on them so you can keep a running total during the day. There are also some apps out there help, e.g. myfitnesspal, which makes tracking calories easy.

The best diet for losing weight is the one you can stick to – nothing is perfect, but it can be perfect for you.
