Counting calories for weight loss

To lose weight effectively, we all need to burn more calories than we consume. In case we do not do it, we are surely going to gain some unwanted fat. So in order to lose weight we all need to look at the amount of calories we consume i.e. we need to count the exact number of calories we burn.

So we need to count the amount of calories intake with a low fat diet and exercise. As you learn counting calories, it will become easier for you to lose weight. First we all must know that all men need around 2500 calories and women need 2000 calories daily as a way to maintain their current weight.

So cutting down your calories intake by 500 everyday, you are going to lose one pound in a week. And if you are able to reduce your calorie intake by 1000 every day, you are going to lose around two pounds every week. When you consume lesser calories, your body will start using the fat storage to make up for the calorie deficit. Combining exercise with your reduced calories count is the healthiest way for you to lose weight.

We all need to use the Calories calculator as a way to count our calories. We need to make permanent changes in our eating habits for successful weight loss. There are some guidelines for making changes in your diets

  • You should take small portions of meal after 3 to 4 hours.

  • Eat a diet low in saturated fats and trans fatty acids and high in monounsaturated fats.

  • Include lots of vegetables, whole grains and legumes in your diet.

  • Avoid foods that contain sugar

  • Avoid alcohol as much as you can. And if you must, limit yourself to one drink a day.

  • Again repeating drink lots of water (at least 8 glasses a day).

  • Do lots of physical activity during the day.

Losing weight is all about making healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle. Once you have cut down on calories and are more physically active, you will start losing weight and start feeling and looking better.
