Dietary intake and exercise are not the only factors involved in weight loss. The claims made in this article are based solely from the experiences of its author, and are in no way intended to replace the medical expertise of a doctor. My claim to have lost 50 pounds is based on the fact that I am an otherwise healthy individual with normal metabolism and no medical conditions that can adversely influence weight. My guarantee is likewise based on the assumption that the reader is also free of outside influences.
When people hear the words “diet” and “weight loss,” chill bumps all too often run along one’s spine. The thought of having to give up an entire lifestyle, only to adopt one of physical taxation and depravation, is more than enough to prevent most people from even attempting to lose weight. Even weight loss clinic in Houston also claims that a lot of people have so many misconceptions about diet and this is the reason why most of them fail in losing weight.
I personally have experience with weight loss. At one time, I was a healthy 220 pounds (given that I am a 5’10” male, I wouldn’t say that I was obese per say), and I was able to lose nearly 50 pounds in only six months. The greatest part, however, was that exercise was not incorporated into my diet plan outside of normal routine physical activities such as walking around my house and lifting household items. I am now willing to share my secret to weight loss.
But first, here’s an analogy to help you understand what I’m talking about.
Let’s say that I take my car to the gas station and fill it completely full of gasoline. Let’s also say that I drive the car back to my house and leave the engine running. The car itself doesn’t move anywhere…I simply let the engine run while the car is in park. What do you think will happen? It may take some time, but the car will eventually run out of gas. My point? Cars need gas to even start.
Humans are the same way. What gasoline is to cars, calories are to humans. I know there are plenty of diet theories: low carb, low fat, and so on. But calories were the only thing I considered in my diet.
Your body requires calories for even the simplest of things to happen: your heart needs to beat, your lungs need to expand, your brain needs to pulse, and so on. Even if you were to lie in bed for 24 straight hours, your body will burn calories regardless of how much exercise you actually get. Can you already guess how I lost weight?
If you know how many calories your body burns in one day, then you can know how many calories you can eat per day and still end up burning more than you took in. Let’s assume that you burn 1800 calories per day. If you take in 1200 calories in one day, then you will lose 600 calories in total for that day. And, since there are 3500 calories in one pound, you will lose 1 pound in about 6 days.
Here is my suggestion. For one week, record the number of calories that you take in each day. Don’t change anything about the way you eat for that one week. Eat and drink just like you normally would, but write down the number of calories that are in each thing (including drinks, sodas have calories too). Then, you can email me your scores and I will be glad to help you determine how many calories you burn in a day. I have to warn you though, especially ladies, that in order to calculate this, I would have to know the three things a woman never likes to talk about: your age, your height, and your current weight.
Once I calculate your daily calorie burn, and once I can analyze your weekly calorie average, I can tell you whether or not you’re losing weight and what you can do to correct your weight. Simply visit my profile page by clicking my name (my name should appear just below the title of this article) and send me a private message. I promise that I will get back in touch with you as soon as I possibly can.
Two more things…
(1) cutting back on daily calorie intake can be dangerous if you cut back too much and too fast. Your body needs a certain amount each day, or else you will become anorexic. And, contrary to what some people believe, starving yourself is not a good way to lose weight.
(2) Always make sure that you take a multi vitamin daily. There are no calories in a multi vitamin, and you will be keeping yourself well nourished.
