Curb Calorie Intake to Lose Weight

Here is yet another of my Top 100 Weight Loss Tips with article number 67 in this series.

In this post, I think it's a good idea to look at how you can curb your calorie intake to lose weight.

As I'm sure I've mentioned in other posts in this website, if the number of calories you consume is less than the number of calories you burn in a day, you cannot fail to lose weight. Still, there are many overweight people that would like to know how they can create this negative calorie balance on a daily basis.

Cut Calories and Lose Weight

Counting calories is probably one of the least loved aspects of losing weight, but it is also one of the most important ones if you are to be truly successful. However, that doesn't mean you need to account for every single calorie.

Apart from being impossible to do accurately because calorie levels will fluctuate in food despite what the label says, it can also lead to a feeling of hopelessness, which is something that must be stamped out before it takes hold. You need to remain positive throughout your planned weight loss strategy in order to see true success.

So the best way to go about working with your calorie intake and burning is to take it in approximations and just work with that. By way of a general example it will be good enough to know you are eating food with a value of about 1,000 in a day and doing sufficient exercise to burn off about 1100 calories in the same day.

That way you will definitely lose weight gradually at a safe pace and not too fast.

Your Lifestyle Makes a Difference

Of course, the calories figures should be personalized to you and your lifestyle and exercise commitments. That ought to be carried out by a qualified nutritional specialist who will take down a lot of information about you in order to calculate and arrive at a targeted figure that will work specifically for you.

The rest is down to you to make sure that you are relatively careful about what you eat. That means eating good, wholesome foods and avoiding starchy, additive, salt and sugar laden processed foods. It also means that you stick fairly closely to your daily exercise schedule.

Once you have taken care of all the necessary points, you can get on and just enjoy your day with all the details done and consigned to memory. That way you don't have to be forever checking and rechecking figures every five minutes. That will drive you crazy and make it all too easy to give up.

So get all the details done first, then put them away. Then you can get on with your day and not worry about them because you will know what you can and can't eat in your daily diet.

Also, you will know how much exercise and what kinds of exercise you are doing. And that is good enough to know that you are curbing your calories to lose weight and doing it successfully!

I think portion control is one of the best ways to lose fat. It imporante you know, it's impossible to lose more than 3 pounds of fat in a week. great post, I really liked

Alexa Jenner says:

For a person can achieve weight loss should change their eating habits. Avoid or reduce the junk food and replace it with vegetable fiber. The process should be slow, and so do not go through abstinence

Is difficult at first to change our eating habits, so I advise, change our habits slowly but steadily. we have to eat much more fiber (25 grams a day) and drink lots more water

We have to sleep 7.5 hours per day minimum. Divide meals at 5.6 or 7 small meals

Cutting cholestrol rich food is not only help in reducing the over weight it also help us to keep our body in fit mind.

Samantha says:

I am a huge fan of portion control in limiting my calorie intake. I eat fairly well so rather than changing that i just cut down a little on what i eat at each sitting. It's a really good way to lose weight without making radical changes.
