Lets be honest, who wouldn't mind losing a little extra weight?
It's a popular topic with an entire industry built around it.
And despite all the interest in weight loss, the answers still aren't very clear.
Some people say to do cardio, where others focus on lifting weights. Nutrition experts will say to try a certain diet. Some will tell you to get more sleep, or be less stressed.
With all this information out there it can be challenging to understand what really works, and what is just smoke and mirrors.
In this article we will examine some common causes of weight gain, as well as some typical ways to lose weight as well as some tricks to make it easier.
What causes weight changes?
During the course of a day your body burns calories to perform basic functions such as breathing, circulating your blood, and powering your brain.
These are called metabolic activities. These activities happen without you doing anything and typically burn between 1200 and 1900 calories each day.
If you were to sit on the couch all day, this is the amount of calories that you would burn.
When you exercise you burn additional calories. If you were to go for an hour run, you'll burn around 500 calories.
When you eat, you gain calories. A salad with a light vinaigrette might have about 400 calories. A cheeseburger, fries, and a shake could have 1600 calories or more.
The only thing that truly causes weight to go up or down is to a surplus or deficit of calories.
If you eat 1500 calories, and burn 2000 calories, you'll end up with a 500 calorie deficit. Roughly 3500 calories equals a pound of bodyfat, so if you had a 500 calorie deficit each day you'd end up losing about a pound each week.
How do various diets impact weight?
There are so many different kinds of diets, but they all more or less fall into one of two categories:
- They increase metabolism so that your body burns more calories naturally
- They keep you full so you tend to eat fewer calories
You either increase the amount of calories you're burning, or you decrease the amount of calories you're eating.
What's the easiest way to lose weight?
The easiest way to lose weight is to do something that increases metabolism, AND makes you feel less hungry so that you don't eat as much.
This is exactly why we developed Burn Booster.
It's a supplement that contains the patented ingredient: Metabolaid which is designed to increase metabolism and decrease hunger.
Taken daily, Burn Booster can help you feel full which promotes decreased eating, and simultaneously drives increased metabolism, which means you burn more calories and have more energy.
There are really only two ways to lose weight:
- Burn more calories each day
- Consume less calories each day
In order to lose weight your calories burned needs to be greater than the calories you consume.
If you can burn additional calories, and eat less calories at the same time, you'll be on your way to losing weight in a hurry.
This is often easier said than done, which is why we developed Burn Booster.
It's a simple and easy addition to any diet or exercise program that can increase your results without having to do extra work.
Whatever you choose to do, keep in mind that to be successful, you'll need to be consistent.
Results happen because you do something small, and you multiply it over the course of many days, weeks, months, or even years.
Good luck, and enjoy the process!
