Lose A Pound


Lose a pound of fat? what does it take? Not eating for a day? Not eating for a week? Eating less? How much less?

Professionals say that it takes 3500 calories in order to loose One Pound of fat you stored in your body. That simply means that you have to reduce your calorie intake for 3500 cal per week, and here you are - one pound less.

Ok, it is not that simple.

In real life the process of loosing a pound is much complicated. Different individuals have different body types, metabolism rates, level of activities, etc. When you are putting yourself on a diet you loose not only fat but also a water and muscle. You do not want to loose muscle because every pound of muscle is burning approximately 60 calories per day, in fact, adding a pound of muscle would help you to burn part of that 3500 calories.

To sum up, 3500 is only rough approximation that one can use in order to keep his/her fat loss under control. Reducing calorie intake is definitely a good step towards loosing that "insulation" around you, but you also need to think about: cardio work - major factor in fat loss, power exercising - that helps you tone your body and get that lean muscle that in turn burns calories even when you sleep, and finally - EATING RIGHT AND HEALTHY FOOD.
