There is a simple equation that governs every weight loss regime; lose more calories than what you take. Now the question is how to determine the number of calories to lose weight?

Determining the Calorie Numbers
The number of calories to lose weight varies from person to person and the easiest way to determine that is to know the Basal Metabolic Rate. The Basal Metabolic Rate tells us the amount of calories needed to maintain our present weight without involving into any activity. The activity multiplier can then be used to determine the exact number of calories needed to maintain the current weight. Having this information we can now decide how much calories to consume and take.

According to an estimate, cutting down 3500 calories we can lose 1 lbs. of weight on average. But how low can we go down with cutting the calories to lose weight in a healthy manner. Experts say that it shouldn’t be more than 1200 calories per day because a lower calorie intake could result in decrease in iron level in the body which decreases the metabolic late. Now you certainly wouldn’t like that to happen.

According to a healthy diet plan you should reduce your daily calorie intake by 500 and another 500 should be expended by some sort of physical activity like sports or exercise. By working on this plan you are well on your way to lose 7000 calories per week which by calculation should result in to two pounds of weight loss. Yes you heard me right, that’s 2 pounds of weight loss in just a week.

Here are some suggestions to help you reduce your daily calories intake

Avoid Alcohol
A 5 ounce glass of light beer or wine can pack 100 calories easily. These calories can add up very fast and if consumed daily you are inviting 10 pounds of weight to your body every year.

Cut Your Carb
Carbs are necessary for your body but what I’m asking you is to cut it down to half. Eat half of the rice, bread or pasta, you would normally take. You can add some extra veggies to fill you up. Whole wheat grains are also a good choice. You’ll feel fuller because of the fiber inside them.

Use Salad for Lunch
Taking fresh salad is ideal if you want to cut down calories to lose weight. It contains both protein and fiber which are essential for a lean muscular body that you are after.

Spread your Meals
When you are looking to cut calories to lose weight, it is important not to go for a heavy meal. Spread your meals to every 3-4 hours so that you don’t feel hungry. A snack or meal every few hours would keep your hunger well in check.

Spacey, I really don't see what you find on this post to be Spam. I know you do rattle on a bit, but let us know why any part of this post is Spam, so that we may not offend you in the future.

Don't take offense Spacey, just keeping you humble.

Spacey... you need AA... Attitude Adjustment.

I thought it was spam too. Plus why listen to people who say you must do this and that or you can't eat this or that. Restricted diets just don't last and aren't enjoyable.

you sound like a scientologist


The OP has said NOTHING anyone with a half a mind cant find on the internet or indeed numerous times on this very site


So to reel in the suckers the OP (ORIGNAL POSTER) posting for the FIRST TIME probably cuts and pastes some seemingly good advice and then


puts in a LINK to some nonsense WISH FULFILMENT BOOK that's going to help YOU discover SECRETS OF WEIGHTLOSS!
REQUIRES YOU TO GIVE YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS AND WILL NO DOUBT AT SOME POINT SEEK TO PART YOU FROM YOUR MONEY

wake up THERE ARE NO SECRETS

If you don't recognise this as SPAM then you are an IDIOT!

Scientology??? Where does religion or a persons beliefs come into this?

I don't understand why you feel the need to insult people and call them names. You have the mentality of a 12 year old. Time to grow up.

If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. The sun does not rise and set on what you say and what you spew is the equivalent to spam.

Give it a try. Let people decide for themselves about diets and what's posted. Encourage them to look in other directions. Don't insult their intelligence.

As to the post you consider spam... I pretty much have followed that same principle and have lost 60lbs.

see the trouble with being a moron which you seem to suffer with is that you don't pick up on your own ignorance stupidity and rudeness

1. Don't comment on my 'need for attitude adjustment' whatever that is sounds like some sort of brainwashing cult ala 'scientology' to me....your not one are you?


2. My reference to SPAM was not the words on the original post but the LINK to the so called FREE EBOOK from the original post which I think I made pretty clear. obviously that simple distinction is beyond your closed mind

"Carbs are necessary for your body"

Au contraire, there are essential amino acids (protein) and essential fats but there is no such thing as an essential carb.

That is just silly. Low carb does not produce any of those results because you cut out carbs.

But low calorie and junk food will do that for ya.

And tasty? You are not familiar with LC I guess.

Brother, if you don't think LC is tasty then you are not familiar enough with LC. Aside from that, the question was never about a 'need' to go low carb. It is a fact that there are no, as in zero, essential carbs. You can eat as close to zero carbs a day as you'd like and you body will produce whatever glucose it needs from the protein you eat assuming you are eating a healthy menu with enough calories. And, of course, leaving aside special applications like competition body building or athletic endeavors of that nature. Even then with the invention of super starches you could be technically LC and still outperform SAD or high carb diet competitors.

But we'll just have to disagree about LC, taste factor and otherwise. No worries.

On training, do you do a rest/repair every other day or do you train several days in a row and then have a scheduled rest day or days?

I'm curious but not brave enough to run the gauntlet of BB sites lol. I know the question has a lot of passionate supporters in all different directions.

I'm not a bodybuilder I just train to keep fit

I do a circuit weight/body weight session one day and a 5 mile power walk the next have a regular day and then repeat

I love eating chocolate popcorn crisps and cake and see no reason to stop!
