Burning 3,500 calories would result in the decrement of the body weight by 1 pounds. That means if you plan on losing 10 pounds, your body will have to burn about 35,000 calories over a span of 7 days. You will have to put your body under a deficit of 5,000 calories every day to achieve this. You cannot possibly run on a treadmill for 8 hours everyday but luckily there is a way to burn calories even when you are snoring.
Metabolism is the term used to refer to the chemical reactions that take place all over the body as a whole. There are certain foods that can be eaten to make sure that these chemical reactions take place at a quicker rate to make sure that the body burns through the calories quicker. This would mean that if you have a high metabolism rate, your body would be burning fat to provide the energy required for these chemical reactions.
There are certain foods that are rich in antioxidants and caffeine that will help speed up your metabolism. You can have the following metabolic boosters in as much quantities as you want: Green Tea, Black coffee, lemon and honey mixed in warm water.
You can eat as many vegetables as you want. They are packed with fiber and are relatively low in calories. You may also eat dense fruits that are high in fiber such as apples, pears etc.
Protein is your second staple source of nutrition and you are only allowed to eat lean meats such as chicken or turkey or tuna. The fiber and protein help keep you feeling full while balancing your blood sugars and making sure that you do not have any sudden cravings.
You need to supplement your diet with a lot of water so that all toxins are immediately flushed out of your system and there are no hiccups on your journey to losing weight.
The above target is extremely difficult and you will have to display an unbelievable amount of discipline if you’re going to achieve it. At the end of the day it is all about how bad you want it. And if you want to lose weight as badly as you want to stay alive there is nothing that can stop you.
