The Magic Number…
It takes 3,500 calories to lose a pound.
So all you need to do is skip eating & exercise until you reach 3,500 right? Not quite.
Remember – if it was THAT easy…well, everyone could do it! When you begin on your journey to creating a physically better you, a number of factors need to be considered.
Indeed caloric intake is instrumental in creating an initial step to a healthier you. What type of calorie & when you consume that calorie are also important elements to consider.
The Winning Combo…
When you cut back on calories, your body’s metabolism eventually slows down to compensate for the lack of food & fuel coming in.
How do you combat a slower metabolic rate & maintain your rate of fat loss?
It takes regular exercise along with the reduction of ‘unhealthy calories’ & increase of ‘higher nutrient dense foods’ to create & maintain an optimal physique.
Keep in mind exercise increases your metabolism, to ensure that you are burning more calories than you consume but at the same time are increasing your level of health, it is important to work with an expert on the matter – search out a good personal trainer.
Even a Winning Plan Can Have Setbacks…
At a certain point a body ‘plateaus’ after losing weight for a period of time.
There are ways to bump your body through a plateau but remember – it’s not all about the scale!
It’s about reducing fat, increasing muscle & creating a healthier & more capable physique.
Lastly, I suggest a BioSignature assessment – a non-invasive body fat test. This is the most accurate way to test your body-fat outside of a lab: BioSignature Body-Fat Testing
There may come a point where you have reduced your fat to the optimal amount.
At that point you’ll be looking to maintain the body that you have created & begin truly sculpting the image that you want to achieve.
A vital key in all weight loss, body-building & shape-training regimens is to be conscious of essential vitamins & minerals that your body needs.
Also, remember to adjust your own expectations & realise that it’s consistency that is key in any fitness programme.
