Now on to the good stuff!
To be able to lose a minimum of 1 pound a week, there’s a simple formula that you must follow.
First, know that 3500 calories equals to one pound. If there are 7 days in a week you can focus on decreasing 500 calories on a daily basis. Now you can either decrease 500 from food, 500 from exercise or 250 from both; food and exercise.
Decreasing 250 calories from food and exercise would be the best option since this will help you lose body fat and increase your lean muscle at the same time.
Here’s what your weekly schedule should look like.
It’s a pretty simple schedule, but if you can decrease a minimum of 500 calories a day you’ll see 1 pound gone each week!
Double that amount per day and you’ll see a decrease of 2 pounds a week!
That’s how simple and easy it is to shed 1-2 pounds a week!
Were you expecting more?
I’m keepin’ it super simple because far too many women think it’s too complicated to lose weight when in fact…it’s really not.
But just looking at the schedule on your computer screen won’t do you any good…You must take action!
Hopefully this series has lit the fire under your butt to get things rockin’ and rollin’. Remember it’s all about consistency and discipline so be honest with yourself and follow the guidelines in this series.
