We all want to know which diet is most effective for losing weight…
The most effective diet for losing weight is the one you can stick to. It’s not keto, it’s not whole 30, it’s not salads every day for lunch and dinner, and it’s not the latest fad on magazine covers. The most effective diet is the one that’s easiest for YOU to maintain.
What causes weight loss?
Calories in, calories out. Consume less than you burn and you’ll lose weight. A good rule of thumb is 500 calories less than your maintenance calories. Yes, you can still have cookies and cake if you work them into your daily calories.
“Ok, and how exactly do I count calories?” Ditch the pad and paper, the easiest way is by using an app such as MyFitnessPal or LoseIt.
Do you have to exercise to lose weight?
Often times when people start a new diet, they also decide to start hitting the gym. Slow down! Too many changes at once is going to cause you to burn out FAST. You don’t need to exercise to lose weight if you’re eating in a calorie deficit. Exercise makes us healthy and strong, but start small and then add on.
