Losing Weight is not as hard as some people may make it seem. The process has always been thought that losing weight has to be a long hard process and if one Diet or Exercise Program doesn't work than none will. Well I'm here to tell you that there are easy steps to losing weight and they are not tied to a specific Diet or Workout Program.
1.Try a Balanced Diet
Having a balanced diet will improve the overall nutrition that your body needs to break down fat and help improve your metabolism. This is not a one size fits all diet and could be improved by eating more or less of the 3 different Macros.
2. Eat in a Calorie Deficit
This is where consistency and accountability meet, tracking your food is a long practice and can be handled very relaxed or very intense. The very relaxed version is putting in what you ate for the day but not weighting it exactly. The opposite end would be weighting out every little gram of food you eat to try and get the most accurate amount of Calories you are consuming.
Where every you are on this spectrum knowing the amount of calories you are eating are important to know how many calories you need to Burn and also how many you need to cut from your Diet. A good rule of thumb about cutting calories is cutting 500 calories from your diet if you are consuming 2000 calories a day. This would cut 3500 Calories for the week which is about 1 Pound of Fat. This also does not take into account the amount if calories you are burning from your everyday life and also your workouts.
3. Having a Consistent Workout Program
This program does not need to be intense, it does not need to be every single day of the week and does not need to be for 1.5 - 2 hours each workout. A workout Program that fits all of your needs is key and one that you will stick to is the most important.
If you are someone that does not like to workout and you haven't been consistent with your workouts, then why would you expect to start working out everyday and doing all this work. Even for people that are trying to quit smoking they hardly ever have any success when quitting Cold Turkey, why would we expect the same for starting a workout program?
There are multiple things that you need to know about a program before starting one. First is how often are the Workouts scheduled, if you have 3 days a week that you can get a 30-45 minute workout then you need to find one that has that sort of structure. Second look for what equipment this program schedules and if it has variations for At-Home or In-Gym equipment. Third see what the focus or outcome of this program is; There are multiple different schools of fitness that are programed and if you are looking for a weight loss program then using a powerlifting or other type of program that is not designed to lose weight will not effectively help you get the results that you need. I would like to add that doing any form of workout will help you lose weight but not as effective as one that is designed to do so.
