Knowing where to start and what to do to get in great shape is so confusing
Everybody you speak to has a different opinion on how to lose weight
Your colleague’s friend is on Slimming world and lost 3 stone
Your neighbour’s lost 2 stone juicing
And your hairdresser swears the only way to lose weight is intermittent fasting
Who do you believe? Where do you start?
It’s so confusing! I completely understand your pain!
The purpose of this article isn’t to sell you another diet plan or to shove another product down your throat, but to educate you
I get you’re busy, so I’m going to summarise everything you need to know in one short article – I’ve also linked a downloadable Mini-Guide with 3 beginner workouts and 7 quick meal ideas at the bottom to help
Before you close this page and continue with your manic life I want you to walk away understanding how you can start losing weight today, by eating all the foods you love
The Big D – A Calorie Deficit
To lose weight you only need to achieve one thing; a calorie deficit.
A calorie deficit is a state where your body burns more calories than you consume
For example, if you were to burn 2000 calories a day but only consume 1500, you would be in a calorie deficit of 500 calories
In this state, your body, still requiring energy to survive has no option but to turn to the stored fat cells as a source of energy
Viola – you start losing weight
Don’t let anything distract you from that. A calorie deficit is essential to losing weight.
Engrain this in your brain
It is impossible to lose weight if you are not in a calorie deficit. Not unlikely, impossible.
“So Which Diet Do I Follow?”
Right, so every single diet you’ve ever heard of will work if it creates a calorie deficit
It doesn’t matter if you start juicing, going Keto, vegan or follow Slimming world
All that matters is that you are burning more than you are eating!
There’s a real diet called “The Doughnut Diet” – I’m not making this up! (I would link the site but if I’m honest I don’t want any connection)
But I can 100% promise you that the doughnut diet works!
How? If we work out how many calories you need to maintain your weight, subtract 500 calories (to create a sensible calorie deficit) we’re left with a number
That number is your daily calorie target – Say it’s 1500
Now all you need to do is eat 1500s worth of doughnuts and.. you guessed it
You start losing weight
This knowledge opens up a lot of doors for you
Now you’re no longer restricted to a cookbook and you no longer need to remove whole food groups
FYI keto (a no carb diet) works because you’re in a calorie deficit, not because you’ve cut out carbs
With this information, you can now enjoy the foods you love and not have to constantly feel guilty
Now, let me answer your next question:
“How Many Calories Do I Need?”
I actually started writing out a detailed formula for you to work out how many calories you need a day based on weight and daily activity level
An hour in it started looking like the ramblings of a mad scientist on a blackboard, so I deleted the whole thing
Instead, head to your app store and download a free app called “MyFitnessPal”
Input your body measurement and viola – how many calories you need to eat on a daily basis
In fact, this is the exact app I use with my clients (:
You can use myFitnessPal to enter your daily food intake too, aim for your calorie goal and no matter what, you’ll lose weight!
Okay, so now you know what you have to do to start stripping some fat off
But how can we increase the rate at which you lose weight and start strengthening your physique?
A killer workout plan.
