Do you know what it takes to lose one pound of body fat??

Hello readers!! Well this is a big topic right now! People are heading back into the gym since it is getting cold outside. Most people gain 3-6 lbs of body fat through the holiday seasons! So if you are proactive you can avoid gaining extra unwanted body fat.

Lets first talk about the basics of losing body fat.

  1. IT TAKES BURNING 3,500 CALORIES TO LOSE ONE POUND OF BODY FAT.
  2. YOU BURN APPROXIMATELY 450-550 CALORIES WHEN YOU DO MEDIUM INTENSITY CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE FOR AN HOUR.
  3. IF YOU DO CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE FOR AN HOUR A DAY 7 DAYS A WEEK YOU WILL BURN APPROXIMATELY 3,500 CALORIES WHICH = TO ONE POUND OF BODY FAT LOSS.
  4. THE ONLY WAY THAT YOU CAN LOSE BODY FAT IS IF YOU DO NOT EAT MORE CALORIES THAN YOUR BODY IS BURNING.
  5. KNOW YOUR BASAL CALORIES. Basal Calorie Calculator  EAT AT LEAST THAT MANY CALORIES A DAY!
  6. LOW  IMPACT EXERCISE IS THE BEST WAY TO GET IN THE AMOUNT OF CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE NEEDED TO INCREASE BODY FAT LOSS. EXAMPLES ARE BIKING, SWIMMING, ELLIPTICAL MACHINE ETC.
  7. STARVING YOUR SELF DOES NOT WORK AND ACTUALLY DOES THE OPPOSITE ….SO EAT 3 MEALS AND 2 SNACKS A DAY!

Well those are the basics to lose body fat. If you need any guidance putting together an exercise program please contact me.

Thank you for your time and energy… be well.
