As a fitness instructor of numerous years, one of the most common goals that I see amongst my clients is losing weight. However what is the most effective way to lose weight? Let’s take a look.
At the end of the day in order to lose weight, we need to burn more calories than we are taking in. So, in other words, we need to be in a caloric deficit as opposed to a caloric surplus. Now how do we make sure that we are in a caloric deficit? Well, there are a few ways to achieve this. One is obvious which is a caloric restriction. Trying to take in fewer calories to ensure a deficit.
Exercise, of course, is another way to get ourselves into a caloric deficit. Exercise burns calories which put us in a better position in the equation. By burning more calories we are put into a deficit which will in turn yield weight loss.
Another helpful tip is to keep a diet journal. Writing down what you eat ensures that you will know how many calories that you were taking in and have a better estimate of your caloric deficit.
Give these tips a shot and they should yield weight loss. Remember every body’s body is different so you need to experiment to see what works for you.
