If you’re overweight, you’re probably conscious of every extra pound. Men and women who do carry extra weight often feel bad about it. Our society celebrates thinness to an unhealthy degree, which is not to say that being overweight is healthy.
Achieving an ideal weight is better than striving for an unnatural level of slimness. So, you should shoot for good general health, rather than trying to look like a male or female model.
As you may already know, models have problems with food, just like everyone else. They are pressured to be very thin and it often leads to eating disorders. In terms of losing weight in a way that doesn’t take a negative toll on your general health, it’s all about slow and steady progress.
Our tips are designed to help you improve the way that you feel, while also supporting your overall health…
Set a Calorie Limit Daily
Experts recommend a calorie intake of about fifteen hundred calories per day for women. Men may need more, depending on their height, body type and so on. There are handy calculators online which will allow you to find out your Body Mass Index, how much you should weigh and how many calories you should take in.
When you use these practical and free resources, you’ll be primed to make a plan and stick to it.
When you find the right calorie level, such as 1500, you’ll benefit greatly from sticking to that calorie level until you achieve your ideal weight. After you do lose the weight that you want to lose, you’ll be able to go on a maintenance diet which features more calories.
This sensible approach to reducing is better than a crash diet. While reducing calories may be difficult at first, it can be done and you’ll get used to it over time. You’ll need to fill up on salads and other low-fat, low-calorie foods.
Get Regular Exercise Daily
As well as eating right and staying with a calorie range which supports weight loss, you should exercise each day or at least a few times per week. This is really important and it’s something that you should commit to. Exercise doesn’t have to be intense. It should raise your heart rate, though. So, think about doing half an hour of cardio exercise a few times per week. You’ll find that this exercise improves your mood, which is a big bonus.
You can lose weight. You just need a plan which will benefit your general health. So, why not follow our tips today?
