Developing A Weight Loss Management Plan
Weight Loss Management
One of the hardest parts about losing weight is staying on track. Many programs designed to help you lose weight do work, but they will only continue to work if you keep following the plan. A good weight loss management plan will take this into account along with finding the right diet and exercise routine.
In order to lose weight, change your diet to a managed amount of healthy foods. Find out your basal metabolic rate and eat 500 calories per day less to lose 1 pound per week. Increase the amount of fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats you eat. Eat a moderate amount of whole grains instead of white starches. A treat once a week is a great way to ensure that you don’t deprive yourself on your weight loss management program.
Exercise at least 6 days every week. Start by walking every morning or evening. Burning 500 calories a day will allow you to lose approximately 1 pound a week for a total of 2 pounds a week. Work in strength training exercises 3 times a week to build and maintain muscle that will burn more fat.
In order to stay on your weight loss management plan, keep a food journal. This will show you exactly what you eat everyday and calculate your calories to ensure that you’re on track. Look for ways to motivate yourself, and never give up after having a bad day. Just get back on track, and you will keep losing weight long-term.
