With some very simple mindset ideas and a crystal clear plan, it IS possible to lose weight easily and keep it off for good. In this article, you’ll learn the simple and easy tools you need to make it happen for you.
I’ve never seen this approach fail — it always works when it’s carefully and faithfully applied.
The “BIG STUFF” of weight loss:
You need to hit a calorie target consistently and easily every day (or most days — it’s what you do most of the time that matters).
(This plan does NOT involve COUNTING calories, which I’ll explain later).
The mega-important words there are consistently and easily, so here’s how you do it:
Create a structure for your diet day that OPTIMIZES consistency and ease. If you get down to the bottom line with weight loss, it’s about WHAT TO DO. I mean, we have thousands of diet books and plans out there, but what actually matters is the bottom line, not you being an expert in the latest fad theory, (that does more for the bank balance of the authors than it does for your waistline).
A crystal clear, no-brainer diet
The WHAT TO DO part has to be a no-brainer — you need to plan (it’s easy), memorize it and follow through with it. And to be easy, it needs to hit the right calorie level for you (without counting), so that you don’t have any hunger… or only a very manageable twinge now and then, nothing much to bother you at all.
If your target is wrong, you’ll hit problems… too many calories and weight loss is slow or non-existent, too few, and you hit hunger and metabolic slowdown as well as bad moods.
But at JUST THE RIGHT LEVEL FOR YOU, you’ll get easy consistent weight loss.
The right level for you is easy too — if you’re an average sized woman, start with 1500 calories, if you’re a man, 1750. And then tweak up or down by 250 if you’re bigger or smaller than average, or have a great deal to lose. So for example if you’re a small woman you could start with 1250. A larger than average man could start at 2000.
Why the wishy-washy target? Because it doesn’t really matter what the start point is — it’s simply a matter of RESULTS — what actually happens at weigh in time. So… you’ll be consistently hitting a target by having a simple structure AND seeing what happens on the scale once a week… then tweak as you wish to speed up or slow down your progress.
