You want to drop weight and fat now. And you want to do it safely. But how?
First, keep in mind that many experts say it’s best to lose weight gradually. It’s more likely to stay off. if you try taking in chemicals to lose weight and fat, you will end up losing muscle, bone, and water instead of fat says the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Make a Plan
You’ve probably heard the saying, “calories in, calories out”; as in, you just need to burn more calories than you eat and drink.
But it’s not that simple, as many people can tell you from their own experience.
There are many ways you can do this, without cutting calories too much. You could:
- Cut back on portions.
- Figure out how many calories you get in a usual day, and trim back a bit.
- Read food labels to know how many calories are in each serving.
- Drink more water, so you’re not so hungry.
