7 Healthy Weight Loss Tips:
1. Lowering your daily calorie intake is a simple numbers game.
You need to burn more calories than you eat every day to lose weight. Since there are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, to lose a pound of pure body fat each week, you need to shave off 500 calories from your daily caloric intake. That’s a total cut of 3,500 calories per week. Most people need 2,000 calories daily to keep from gaining or losing weight. That means to lose one pound of weight in one week, you need to consume no more than 1,500 calories per day.
2. The Standard American Diet (SAD) Includes Over 300g of Carbohydrates Per Day.
To cut body fat fast, consume no more than 100-150g of carbs daily and be sure to say no to junk food, fried foods, processed foods, sugar, and those no-calorie sugar substitutes, too. Reducing your carb intake allows your body to tap into your fat storage for energy. That being said:
Just one of the reasons the Almased diet is so easy is that they have counted the carbs and calories, so you don’t have to.
3. When it Comes to Beverages, it’s Best to Drink at Least 64 Ounces of Water Daily.
A 2010 study conducted by the American Chemical Society confirms that people who consumed two cups of water before eating a meal ate between 75 to 90 fewer calories during that meal. People who drink more water throughout the day are more hydrated and have more energy.
The Almased diet recommends to drink 8-10 cups of liquids daily, including at least 4 cups of home-made vegetable broth or 100% low-sodium vegetable juice - all excellent additions while fasting, and that's all part of the Almased Diet, too.
4. Put More Protein into Your Diet.
Protein is appetite-reducing and helps to control bad food cravings and overeating. Think lean meats like turkey or chicken breasts, fish, steak, low-fat milk and cottage cheese, eggs, and beans. The Almased shake contains 27g of high-quality protein per serving to further protect your muscle mass.
5. Exercise is always necessary for fitness and general wellness and a must for boosting your metabolism.
Not only does working out burn calories, thereby allowing you to eat a little more, it also builds lean muscle mass. Cardio is great, even just walking or cycling a few days a week. On the other days, a couple of strength-training sessions will help prevent muscle loss. Ask your doctor if you are healthy enough to incorporate exercise into your weight-loss plan. Aim to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise each workout.
6. Get plenty of sleep if you want to lose weight.
Insufficient sleep affects appetite and satiety hormones as well as fat cells. According to Eve Van Cauter, director of the Sleep, Metabolism and Health Center at the University of Chicago, “There is no doubt that insufficient sleep promotes hunger and appetite, which can cause excessive food intake resulting in weight gain.”
