How can dieting help to lose weight?

How can dieting help to lose weight?

Dieting = less cal: Dieting means that you are choosing to eat fewer calories than you burn. Our practice finds that the average 200 pound person burns about 2000 cal per day. So, if they eat only 1200 cal per day, then they are breaking down fat from their body. (3500 cal = 1 lb). So, an 800 cal defecit daily should allow for a one pound weight loss in 4 days. About 7 pounds per month. Good luck. ...Read more

How to lose weight and maintain that weight effectively?

How to lose weight and maintain that weight effectively?

Must stay in balance: Our bodies are in a simple state of balance. If we eat more calories than we use, we gain weight. If we eat fewer calories than we use, we lose weight. So, people who stay the same weight eat more than they use on some days, and less than they use on other days . . . But it averages out over time, so that they are eating & using the same number of calories. That's why their weights are maintained. ...Read more
