If you want try this. I have been working on my "life style" change for a while. I actually found something that works. I have lost 50 lbs. and I’m losing almost 1lb a day. First off, their calorie count here is way too high. I like to use an app called LOSE IT! Once you have found you calorie count you also need to keep track of your Fats, Carbs, and proteins. This is how you do it and yes there is some math involved. EX: 1500 calorie diet for someone who wants to weigh 150 lbs. -25% of your calories count a day should be your fat and no more. So 25% of 1500=375 calories. Now we need to put these in to grams so you can keep track of the grams of fat. Here is what the conversion is: 1g of fat = 9 calories 1g of protein = 4 calories 1g of carbohydrates = 4 calories Now that we know this lets figure it out. So we had 375 calories of fat which if you divide by 9 (calories per gram) it equals 41.66 so we will round up to 42g of fat per day. - Next is protein. The amount of protein you want to eat is the lbs. you want to weigh. So originally we said you wanted to weigh 150 lbs. So you would eat 150g of protein a day. - Last we need to fill in the rest of the calories with carbs. Here’s the tricky part. So... we had 42g of fat which if we x it by 9 we get 378 calories. Now 150g of protein we x's by 4 and it equals 600 calories. Now we are at 978 calories for the day. Still following? Good! 1500 calories our daily allowance) - 978 calories (total of fat and protein) = 522 calories. Almost there. Now we need to take the 522 calories and turn it in to grams of carbs so we take 522 and divide by 4 which equal 130.5g of carbs a day. -So recap: if you are allowed 1500 calories a day and want to weight 150 lbs., then you would get: 42g of fat a day, 150g of protein a day, and 130.5g of carbs a day. Make sure you choose your food wisely because you don’t want to exceed calories, carbs, and fat. You make exceed proteins. Proteins burn fat. Last thing I want to say is drink plenty of water and just walk during the day. Walk at work, school, and around the house. 1/2 hr. of walking is all you need for a boost! Watch those lbs. come off!
