There are many different ways to go about losing weight. Most research shows that all of these different methods come down to a few simple rules. The most important rule is that you need to burn more calories than you eat. If you can spend more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. However, there are some methods in a weight loss program that are more effective than others. Also, the combination of diet and exercise is hotly contested.
Diet and Exercise
When you are choosing a weight loss program in Wilkes Barre, PA, you need to consider the intersection of diet and exercise. Typically, you can lose weight simply by cutting down on a number of calories that you eat. However, this can be a difficult way to lose weight and it can be very slow. If you want to maximize your weight loss, you need to also add in some exercise. Generally speaking, one pound of fat is lost for every 3500 calories you burn. Therefore, if you cut down on your food intake by 500 calories a day and everything else stays the same, you will lose about a pound a week. That’s not always hard and fast though. Also, not everyone has an excess 500 calories to cut.
At the Power Chiropractic Health Center, LLC., you will be able to find a workout plan that also helps you lose weight.
Exercise for your weight loss program should be a combination of cardiovascular exercise that boosts your heart and lung health and muscular exercise that boosts your strength levels. Muscles burn more calories than fat even when they’re at rest. Therefore, if you are growing your muscles, you will be losing weight faster than if you did not. That’s the case even when you are sitting around the house or not doing anything particularly strenuous.
