Counting calories your diet may need updating
What that means is, you want to eat less calories than your body burns in a day.For example, if your body burns 2000 calories a day but you eat only 1700 calories a day, you create a calorie deficit of 300 calories a day and you’ll lose weight.(I offer a free 7 day trial, and I try to keep it affordable at only .95/month.
All you need to do is enter the food you eat and the quantities, and… Online - I recommend the Fit Watch Fitness Tracker to count and keep track of your calories.
I find I do very well with those percentages, but I sometimes need to drop the carbs a bit more to around 45% and up the protein.
So, I end up with a ratio of 45% carbs, 35% protein and 20% fat If you exercise a lot, you *may* want to go up to 60% carbs.
Okay, before we start with the blueprint, I want everybody to keep this in mind: it’s not “weight” you want to lose, but “fat.” Everybody calls it “weight loss,” but, believe me, you don’t want to be losing muscle in your quest for a thinner body.
I’ll be using terms like weight loss and lose weight, but I really mean “fat loss” and “losing fat.” What I’ve got for you is a 5 step “blueprint” to lose weight by counting calories, covering how many calories you should eat in a day to lose to carb/protein/fat ratios, and more.
