How long does it take to lose weight


Many sites on the Internet make big promises and fool their readers into believing that you can lose fat while stuffing your face with burgers or completely denying your body one sort of nutrition. There are some very interesting examples like Frank Medrano who maintains a high level of strength as a vegan. But why let yourself in for a stringent diet regime when the basics are so simple to get started.

I can feel the pain of housewives who want some pounds to disappear. They go out and buy the expensive, healthy ingredients, slave over a new, complicated recipe just to find that it is not to the liking of the family and leaves herself hungry. Your pontential is determined by how many calories you consume over a day minus the calories you burn. If you consume more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. If you burn more than the intake, you lose weight. Keeping balance between the two while exercising will make you fitter, build muscle and burn fat whilst gradually progressing to a healthier version of yourself.

How to make it happen

Rather than focusing on the input site of things focus first on the output site. For exercising you only have to change your own behavior patterns without being awkward at social occasions, starting fights over food with family members and spending a lot of time on cooking & hunting for exotic ingredients like leftover quinoa. Dieting only gets rid of the flab. If you want to get shaped, fitter and healthier, save the time running around and preparing fancy food that nobody eats but yourself. First get in to the habit of training to burn calories, then change bad calories for good calories and optimize according to your goals. How long does it take to lose weight? I lost 32 pounds over 1.5 years with this approach and just recently tapped into significantly changing my diet. Not to lose weight, but to run faster and show my hopefully soon to be seen six pack.
