In order to lose weight you need to be burning more calories than
you're consuming...however, this statement is usually taken the WRONG
Just being alive...all
people burn a certain amount of calories BMR (basal metabolic rate) then
you add in the calories you burn just moving around, possibly working
out etc., and those are the calories you burn overall throughout the
day....lots of people think ok I'm going to shoot for "1200 or less"
calories per day in order to lose weight because I have to be burning at
least 1200 calories every day....Are you guilty of this thought?
Because I was guilty of it until recently. But
here's the thing.....EVERYONE BURNS ATLEAST 1200 CALORIES JUST BEING
ALIVE unless there's some underlying condition going on....
you need way more than 1200 calories to lose weight. Why?? If you shoot
to eat 1200 calories or lower your body tends to think you are trying
to STARVE IT and will literally hold on to every once of fat you have ON
your body...and begin to eat your muscle....even if you're working out
and lifting weights. Our bodies do NOT like to be starved and will fight
So are you feeling frustrated because you're kicking your
booty in your work outs, eating 1200 calories or lower (or maybe a bit
higher) and still not seeing results? I've got a guess, your body WANTS
I 100% promise you....you up those calories to what
is safe for YOU. If you need help with this contact me (through the contact section on the right, or through my Facebook page, and I'll help you
figure out your number. Then, you will start to lose weight. But
obviously you've gotta up the calories with HEALTHY FOOD!
