Do you have any loved people who seem to be able to eat whatever they want and never gain weight? If you are wondering how they do that, here are some common reasons and what you can learn from them to help you in your own weight loss effort.
1. EAT LESS THAN 2000 CALORIES PER DAY OF ANYTHING YOU WANT BECAUSE…
It’s NOT WHAT You Eat that makes you fat or slim… It’s HOW MUCH You Eat or the amount of calories you eat that makes you gain weight, lose weight/maintain your current weight.
Look at the picture below and you’ll get a better idea why it does not matter WHAT you eat…
So if we use the picture above as an example…
If your metabolism burns 2000 calories per day & you eat 2000 calories per day then you’re going to maintain your weight and it Does NOT Matter where the 2000 calories you eat comes from but…
If you eat more than 2000 calories per day when your metabolism only burns 2000 calories per day then You’re going to gain weight EVEN IF you ate the healthiest foods because your body stores the extra calories you eat as fat.
If you eat less than 2000 calories per day of anything you want when your metabolism burns 2000 calories per day then you will start losing weight or burning off fat for energy to make up for the lack of energy from the calories you’re not eating.
Because the average person who’s trying to lose weight needs to eat more than 2000 calories per day to maintain or gain weight…
YOU’LL EASILY LOSE WEIGHT FAST EATING LESS THAN 2000 CALORIES PER DAY NO MATTER WHAT YOU EAT
2. EAT WHENEVER YOU WANT
As long as you’re eating less than 2000 calories per day It does not matter WHEN, WHERE or WHAT you eat.
Feel free to eat 5 small meals or 1-to-3 BIGGER meals per day.
If you don’t eat more than 2000 calories, You won’t gain weight if you eat late at night or after 6pm
The only time it matters WHEN you eat is if you’re eating on an intermittent fasting schedule and/or if you workout before breakfast or your 1st meal to burn fat faster.
3. DRINK AT LEAST 1 LITER OF WATER PER DAY
Drink at least 1 liter, 33 ounces or 4 cups of water per day to prevent any water retention/bloating or false fat gains because your body actually holds onto water when you don’t drink enough water.
You may have to drink more than 1 liter of water per day if you’re eating a lot of bad foods because those foods are high in sodium/salt which cause you to retain water and you’ll need to drink more than 1 liter to flush out any excess water weight.
Don’t drink away all your calories meaning its best to drink ONLY water (0 calories) instead of wasting calories on sugary sodas they may cause you to gain weight
Tip: You’ll burn an extra 140 calories per day for every gallon of ice cold water you drink.
4. TRACK YOUR PROTEIN TO LOSE WEIGHT FASTER
You’ll lose weight regardless of what you eat as long you eat less than 2000 calories per day but according to studies, you’ll lose weight faster when at least 30% of your diet is protein.
