I love to eat. You’d probably think that’s the only answer to the question posed by this post’s title. You’d get some chuckles out of me, for sure. But you’d also be wrong. Why? Because you would only be looking at one end of the weight loss equation. When one wants to lose weight, one would have to either eat a lot fewer calories while burning a constant amount of calories or eat a constant amount of calories but burn a lot more calories or, ideally, eat fewer calories and burn more calories. All these scenarios produce a net negative calorie intake. Since the body stores excess calories into fat, the less calories you have leftover at the end of the day, the better. In fact, if you have a net negative of calories, you actually burn your stored fat reserves and you lose weight. So, back to my story, if you think the reason I am having a tough time losing weight is because I love food too much, you’d be wrong if you forgot to factor in my calorie burning activities. My metabolism has to be slow for me to gain weight. Indeed, I don’t exercise as much as I used to and this has resulted in my body not burning enough calories to offset the energy I consume on a daily basis.
1 Year Ago
Since I understand what causes me to gain weight, after I looked up information on search engines and on WLZine resources (very informative article by WLZine), I had enough information to formulate a weight loss plan. I planned a Holland bike tour in the Netherlands and kept reading and reading. The great thing about the weight loss equation I mentioned above is that there are a lot of ways to ‘solve it.’ In fact, there is such a variety that people who are worried about weight loss causing inconvenience to their lifestyles don’t really have much to go on. You only need to pick the solution that best fits your lifestyle.
Reduced my calorie intake
Since I am pretty laid back and don’t want to exert too much effort nowadays, I’ll choose to reduce my calorie intake. The easiest way to do this is to skip a meal (watch out for hair loss though otherwise you’ll need this page) with using an appetite suppressant(go here for the best appetite suppressant tips, one of the best is one this page) as a possible help. I’ll eat like a king when my metabolism is really pumped during the day-this would be during the morning. Big breakfasts. Next, I’ll eat a sensible lunch and a light fruit snack at night while I’m usually on the pc (especially after speeding it up using tips from this great website: http://www.speed-up-pc.org/). While my metabolism has quite a bit of a drop off after noon, I’ll offset this with eating a very light fruit snack for dinner. Since there is not much calorie intake and my metabolism is dropping off, this results in a negative calorie intake for the day. As long as I don’t compensate the ‘lost’ calories of skipping dinners, I will lose weight using this plan.
