When it comes to weight loss counting calories may be a thing of the past, as a tried and failed attempt, an obsession, or somewhere in between…. Whatever the case, I want to make you aware of a couple pearls that may awaken a new drive to excel and beat the un-welcome weight once and for all.
Multiply your ideal weight in pounds (the number of pounds in which you’d like to weigh) by 10. This number calculated is the max amount of calories you will want to consume in a day if you are trying to lose weight. There are Apps to help keep track of your caloric intake. Online BMI (Body Mass Index) calculators can help you determine your percentage if body fat. It cannot take into account muscle mass, bone density etc. I do not recommend this tool to be used by anyone but the obvious out-of-shape and over-weight. For example, a weightlifter with more muscle mass may be overweight according to the BMI formula. Body Fat Percentage is the amount of body fat you store. If you know your body fat percentage the calculator will use the Katch-McArdle formula. BMI is simply your weight in (kilograms) divided by your height in meters squared.
You are underweight if your BMI is less than 18.5
you are in normal range if it is between 18.5 to 24.9, and
Overweight if your BMI is between 25 to 29.9 and
Obese if it is over 30.
One pound of body fat has 3,500 calories. This means in order to lose 1 pound of body fat in any given week, you need a deficit of 3500 caloric intake per week which comes out to be 500 calories/day. I think this is on the conservative side. However, paired with exercise and sauna-ing, it is reasonable.
All this aside, I find it easier to follow the Vital Diet Plan I’ve constructed in combination of the oldest form of research we have on blood chemistry and foods, the Blood Type Diet, ancient eastern wisdom and todays findings on healthy diets. It is the simplest way to compute all the information and weed out mis-conceptions. I am in the process of making it into an ebook and in the mean time you may get the information for free with a special time offer until the end of March 2019. My long-Distance Patient Plan is ½ off at only $45*. This includes a phone consult going over your recommendations based upon a Systems Survey (SS) (symptomology in connection with body systems).
*With this $45 dollar consult you receive the Vital Diet Plan, Holistic lifestyle tips and self-evaluation within this guide. You also receive a personalized report of the recommended whole-food derived supplements indicated by SS as needs to fulfill your nutritional deficits.
