๐Ÿ Back to Basics #๐Ÿb2b

Each day rate yourself a ๐Ÿ For each on of the basics you complete ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

What are the basics ?

1. Caloric intake ๐Ÿ

2. Planning ๐Ÿ

3. Tracking ๐Ÿ

4. Movement ๐Ÿ

5. Journaling ๐Ÿ

Today letโ€™s talk about calories!

Most people will need to stay around 1200-1600 a day to lose weight! (always ask your doctor)๐Ÿง ๐ŸฅŠ

Most overweight people take in only a few hundred calories a day more than a thin person but the compounded affect of those extra calories is obesity. ๐Ÿง ๐ŸฅŠ

I can work out for an hour and barely burn 400 calories! So, you canโ€™t work off what you eat in the kitchen at the Gym! This was a very hard lesson for me to learn!

If you start to understand #intune eating with how many calories you are taking in a light ๐Ÿ’ก will go off and you will realize that you are eating too much. ๐Ÿง ๐ŸฅŠ

The math of permanent weight loss. 3500 calories is equal to one pound of fat. If you have an Apple Watch it tells you active and inactive calories that you are burning.

I burn 1,500 a day if i just sit and now I burn another 700 with movement. Thatโ€™s 2,200 a calories a day I burn! so, If I ate 2200 a day and burned 2200 a day, I wouldnโ€™t lose weight. Does that make sense ? So I eat about 1500 burn 2200 and thatโ€™s how you lose weight!!! So I burn 700 more calories daily than I consume. If 3500 calories = one pound of fat ... then i would love close to 1.5 pounds a week.

If you walk an hour a day and stay within your desired calorie range. This would happen for you too. Itโ€™s science and while itโ€™s not exact ... I lost faster than science said and I did it in healthy way!

i prefer #intune eating but you will use calories to judge your performance!!! ๐Ÿง ๐ŸฅŠ

I did get 5. Exactly 1200 calories, thought I was going to come in at less but hunger dictated jelly bean snack in the evening ๐Ÿ˜€. Got 50 min. walking. Daily journal which is cued by my planner which means I have to plan. Also, track in Life and Apples, then put into tracker. Love your recommendation of Life & Apples journal Lisa!๐Ÿ’—
