Are there really secrets to losing weight? For many people, it is not about the actual secret as much as it is about the misconceptions. Do you think you can eat anything if you spend 90 minutes a day working out? Perhaps you are working hard but you cannot get rid of those last few pounds. On the other hand, you may be losing weight but you don’t feel good or you do not look better. What is really going on? Those are the typical questions individuals have about weight loss.
By better understanding the true secrets to weight loss, you will find yourself on the right track for looking better and feeling great. Look at these.
Just how much weight can I lose in a week? You may have heard the average doctor recommend just a pound or two a week and felt that just was not enough. How much you lose depends on the amount of exercise you do and the amount you are eating. Keep in mind that in order to lose just one pound of fat, you need to create what is called a calorie deficit of 3500 calories. Therefore, to lose a pound a week, you need to have a 500-calorie deficit each day. For two pounds a week, you need a 1000-calorie deficit. That may seem like a lot, and it is. However, the only way to lose weight is through diet and exercise, if you want to keep that weight off.
