How do I lose weight?
To stay at a healthy weight, balance the calories you eat with the calories you burn. To lose weight, you need to use more calories than you eat. A healthy diet and physical activity can help you control your weight.
Calories are a measure of the energy in the foods you eat. You burn calories when you are physically active.
How do I know if I’m eating the right number of calories?
Go to http://www.w8md.com and find the daily calorie application on the right side of the page, enter your information to find out how many calories your body needs each day. This is the number of calories you need to maintain your current weight. If you are overweight or obese, burn more calories than you eat to lose weight.
In order to lose weight, you need to cut down your calories. If you cut down your calories by 3500 calories over a period of, lets say, one week, you are expected to lose one pound of weight. In other words, if you cut your calories by 500 calories a day, you cut about 3500 calories in a week and therefore, lose about one pound.
What can losing weight do for me?
If you are overweight or obese, losing weight can lower your risk for serious health conditions like: Type 2 diabetes Heart disease High blood pressure Early death
Plus, eating healthy and being physically active can give you more energy throughout the day. Move more and eat healthy foods to help: Lower your blood pressure Lower your blood sugar Raise your “good” cholesterol Lower your “bad” cholesterol
You may start to see these benefits by losing just 5 to 10 percent of your body weight. For example, if you are 200 pounds, this could mean losing as little as 10 pounds.
Make a promise to eat well, move more, and get support from family and friends. If you need to lose weight, do it slowly over time.
Remember that to lose weight, you need to eat fewer calories than you burn.
Set realistic goals. Start out by setting small goals, like: I want to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week. I will add 10 minutes of physical activity to my daily routine. I will avoid second helpings of meals this week.
Keep a food and activity diary. Write down: When you eat What you eat How much you eat Your physical activity.
