People in America spend millions of dollars every year on fad diets, pills, and supplements that simply do not work.

How Weight Loss Works
Burning body fat and losing weight is actually very simple. It’s one of the many things in life that is very simple to do, yet not necessarily easy to do. I was able to lose over 60 pounds and completely transform my body. However, it took me right about 30 years to figure out how to become the person that lived a fit lifestyle. The actual body transformation where I lost 60 pounds took a little over a year to accomplish once I learned the truth about dieting and losing weight. Also, I had a mentor and coach helping me to get my mindset where it needed to be as well.
Burning fat and losing weight it is simply done by burning more calories than you consume each day.
Sounds easy right?
Here’s the trick. In order to know if you’re burning more than you’re consuming, you must diligently and consistently track exactly how many calories you consume every day.
That is the part that it took me nearly 30 years to figure out. I’m now giving that to you in hopes that you find this information way before the 30-year mark in your fitness journey.
In order to properly lose weight by dieting, tracking how much food do you consume as well as your macronutrients is the key. No
Different Ways To Lose Weight By Dieting The Right Way
Many people have figured out that it is very simple to lose weight. A lot of people know already that they just need to burn more calories than they eat each day.
This is where the confusion certain. The health industry is very vast. There are literally thousands of different diet programs nutrition plans workout routines supplements etc. etc. etc. out there. Every one of these is being marketed as the golden ticket to losing weight and keeping it off forever. It’s really easy to see how someone could get confused, especially when trying to decide between one day program and another one. When both of them are saying that they are the answer and the key to their success than weight loss. Of course, both of these programs so scientific evidence to back up their claims. So which way is the right way to do it correctly?
There are just a couple of really important benchmarks you need to hit when learning how to lose weight by dieting.
First, you need to know how many calories to eat each day in order to create a caloric deficit. Also, you need to simply eat at or below that calorie level.
Second, you need to know how much protein you need to eat daily, and be sure to get that amount every day. Protein is the single most important of the three macronutrients: proteins, carbohydrates, fats. When you were losing weight and creating a caloric deficit you need to get adequate protein in order to maintain your current level of muscle tissue. Muscle actually requires many calories in energy per day just to maintain. So, the more muscle you have the more calories you burn passively.
There are countless numbers of diet programs out there, all claiming that if you manipulate the different amounts of macronutrients you eat daily, stating that their program is the right way. The truth here is that as long as you’re staying with in your calorie and protein goals, the amount of carbohydrates and fats can vary depending on your preference.
Easy 3-Step Method To Lose Weight & Keep It Off
Get excited, because right now I’m going to reveal this is a 3-step method that’ll help you lose weight and keep it off for good. This is the exact method the personal trainers, fitness coaches, and myself personally used to help our clients lose weight and keep it off. Also, this is literally what I did to lose over 60 pounds, get a six-pack, and become a fit person for life. The great news here is that you can do it too!
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this.
Remember, you simply need to burn more calories than you consume each day. The key is consistently tracking and staying within your macronutrient goals.
1. Start A Food Journal:
Again, this is the exact way a good personal trainer will get client started on an exercise and diet program. You will just simply start off by writing down what foods and caloric drinks you consume each day. Do this for two weeks. This is what a trainer will ask you to do as well. Don’t worry about exact measurements, calorie counts, or anything like that. You simply need to write down what foods and roughly how much you’re eating.
This accomplishes two things.
First, you where in us of what you were actually daily basis. And for many, this act alone drives them to make healthier and lower calorie food choices.
Second, this begins the process of creating a great positive habit of tracking your food daily.
2. Establish How Much You Need To Eat:
Before you can start eating in a caloric deficit, you need to understand what are your baseline calories are. This means establishing the number of calories you need to eat each day just to maintain your weight. There are a couple of formulas out there like the Katch McArdle formula and the Harris-Benedict formula which give you an estimate it base-calorie level.
However, these are estimations…
3. Track How Many Calories You Consume Daily:
Don’t get too hung up on these formulas and treating them like the Bible. They are just a starting point. Now that you are working on creating your new habit of tracking your food intake daily, you’re going to put this to good use.
Find out what your estimated base-calorie level is for the day, and then simply track what are you eat staying as close to that level as possible. You definitely need to be within 100 cal plus or minus of that estimation consistently for two weeks in order to get some good data. You’ll also want to track your weight daily. MyFitnessPal is a great app to easily do this on your phone. At the end of each week, evaluate the trend in your weight. If it is trending up, then reduce your daily caloric intake it by 100 to 200 cal. If it is trending down, keep eating the same. Hopefully you see how this works. Tracking is the key along with consistency.
Hopefully by now you have a better handle on how to lose weight correctly. I explained how weight loss works and that you need to create a caloric deficit in order to burn fat, transform your body, and create a fit life.
We then talked about the confusion in the fitness industry and hopefully you’ve gained some clarity on that subject. Lots of diet plans work. They all create a caloric deficit. Just be sure that you’re getting adequate protein on whatever program you choose.
I then gave you the three-step method to lose weight and keep it off that personal trainers use with their actual clients. Follow those three steps and you will be on your way.
