Whether your goal is to lose weight, lose body fat, tone or gain muscle, it’s advisable to incorporate some form of progress tracking. Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether we are actually making any progress and often times we are not the best judge of our progress.
You decided to you want to lose some weight, but you are trying to figure out how long it will take you to reach your goal. In this post, I'll explain what are some realistic expectations when it comes to how fast you can lose body weight and provide you with some basic calculations you can use to estimate your rate of weight loss.
Use these calculators to calculate your BMI, calorie needs and calories burned.
When it comes to improving your health and fitness, how you structure your day is one of the key elements. Losing weight comes down to creating a sustained caloric deficit that will force your body to start burning its own fat for fuel. By having a good structure that encourages healthy behavior and habits, creating a caloric deficit becomes much easier.
When setting up your health and fitness goals, it is essential that you figure out your “why.” We are not talking here about superficial “why” like for example “I want to lose weight.”
