How to Lose 2-3 Pounds a Week?

Losing weight can be challenging, especially as we get older. As we age, and gain weight, new fat cells form. Specifically for women, around the legs and thigh areas. By reducing your caloric intake you can lose body fat, lose weight and contour your curves.

How? 
By eliminating only 500 calories from your daily caloric intake, you can help burn body fat. Especially from the above-mentioned common problem areas, the legs and thighs. First, figure out how many calories you need to maintain your current weight (Take 10 calories for every pound of weight you currently are to come up with your number). Then subtract 500 calories from that number. By doing so, you will get the number of calories you need to eat daily to lose weight and body fat. (Highly recommended to not go below 1200 calories daily)
Example: A person weighing 190 pounds=1,900 calories minus 500 calories=1,400 calories a day. (As you are losing make adjustments to your caloric intake in order to keep losing)
By following this plan, you could lose up to 1 pound a week without exercise. But If you exercise, (which I highly recommend) you can lose up to 2 to 3 pounds a week. This is a simple way to approach losing body fat. (I lost over 30 pounds in two months using this formula with exercising 5 days a week for 45-60 minutes)
Keep in mind, that when you drop the 500 calories from your daily intake, you’re apt to feel hungry. It is important for you to listen to your body when losing weight. And if you are feeling weak and or extremely hungry, eat something! Just focus on making the healthiest choices when you do.

 

Eating smaller portions several times per day, usually four to six times a day, will help stave off your hunger. Be sure to eat nutrition-rich, fibrous foods when you eat your small meals. Here’s a list of healthy foods to try.

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Nuts
  • Yogurt
  • Whole grain pasta
  • Quinoa
  • Oatmeal
  • Lean turkey and chicken
  • Hot peppers
  • Edamame
  • Dark chocolate
  • Potatoes

 

TIP:

DRINK LOTS OF WATER:
Drinking fresh water helps lose your body fat in several ways.
  • It helps you feel full: Water is a low-calorie way to feel full. Plus, drinking water prior to your meal will help you eat less. Drinking just a couple of glasses of water prior to a meal can help you lose weight. The water fills up your stomach so you’ll take in fewer calories.
  • Helps rid your body of toxins: Drinking lots of water helps your kidneys eliminate the toxins. It also helps rid your body of excrement. Otherwise, you will get constipated. Water flushes out your system keeping your skin smoother, you’ll feel less bloated, and you’ll have increased energy.
  • Metabolism boost: Drinking more water, boosts your metabolism by up to 30%. It aids in your digestion, the absorption of nutrients, and your body’s fat-burning abilities.

*Always consult a physician prior to changing your diet and or starting a exercise plan.
