1) You’re Eating Too Many Calories
This should be pretty obvious to most people, but there are still those who are claiming that you can eat all you want as long as you avoid carbs.
That’s just not true. At the end of the day you need to eat less. It’s really simple.
Losing weight can be as simple as cutting out one teaspoon of sugar in your morning coffee or forgoing that extra slice of bread with your dinner.
To lose a pound of fat a month, assuming your intake and expenditure of all other calories remains the same, all you need to do is cut 100 calories a day from your diet. That’s because a pound of body fat is equivalent to about 3,500 calories. So if you cut 100 calories a day for 31 days, you’re cutting 3,100 calories or about a pound.
If you’re concerned that this pace is not fast enough, consider that research shows you’re more likely to keep weight off if you lose it slowly. In addition, it doesn’t take a Herculean effort to make changes so it doesn’t feel as though your on a diet to begin with.
