Calorie Deficit, it’s a key to sustainable weight loss.
What is a Calorie Deficit?
In the most simplest of ways, a calorie deficit occurs when you consume fewer calories than your body expends. Calories in minus calories out. Burn more calories than you consume and you’ll lose weight, right? If only it were that easy!
A calorie deficit of 500 calories per day is effective for healthy and sustainable weight loss. For all my new moms out there this is for you! – To support safe postpartum weight loss, the recommendation is to lose about 1-1.5 pounds per week. That’s the same as saying less than 500-750 calories per day to lose roughly 1 to 2 pounds per week, safely!
If a person is tad bit lazy and do not exercise or engage in other physical activities. Then it is recommended that they should start to get 30 minutes of exercise each day, if possible.
Here are 9 tips to lose weight faster:
- Eat a high protein breakfast. Eating a high protein breakfast could help reduce cravings and calorie intake throughout the day.
- Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. Empty calories from sugar aren’t useful to your body and can hinder weight loss.
- Drink water before meals. One study showed that drinking water before meals reduced calorie intake and may be effective in weight management.
- Choose weight-loss-friendly foods. Some foods are better for weight loss than others. Here is a list of healthy weight-loss-friendly foods.
- Eat soluble fiber. Studies show that soluble fibers may promote weight loss. Fiber supplements like glucomannan can also help.
- Drink coffee or tea. Caffeine consumption can boost your metabolism.
- Base your diet on whole foods. They’re healthier, more filling, and much less likely to cause overeating than processed foods.
- Eat slowly. Eating quickly can lead to weight gain over time, while eating slowly makes you feel more full and boosts weight-reducing hormones.
- Get good quality sleep. Sleep is important for many reasons, and poor sleep is one of the biggest risk factors for weight gain.
