Accelerated results proper nutrition

Proper nutrition is no less important component of the process of losing weight than exercise. From what and how much You eat depends on Your result, so if You want the reflection in the mirror began to delight You, should adhere to the following principles.

Observe the calorie deficit

To calculate how many calories per day You need for weight loss, according to the formula:

(655+ (height, cm *1,8)+ (weight*of 9.6)-(age*4,7))*activity factor

This ratio is:

  • 1,2 for a person who is not trained
  • 1,38 - 1 to 3 sports per week
  • 1.55 V is from 3 to 5 lessons
  • 1,73 - more than 5 training sessions

For weight loss the figures you need to subtract 400-500.

Example: height 167 cm, weight 55 kg, age 25, for an activity factor of 1.55.


Subtract 500, and it turns out that for safe weight loss at such input you need to consume 1617 calories per day. Of course, to calculate all the calories up it is impossible, but still try to keep an accurate count.

Follow the norms of protein, fats and carbohydrates

Proteins should constitute 30-40% of total calories, fats 15-20%, carbohydrates 30-40%. Food which contains mainly carbohydrates, try to eat in the morning or in the afternoon. In the evening give preference to protein foods.

To products with high protein content include:

  • Eggs
  • Chicken, lean meat
  • Fish
  • Cheese
  • Almonds
  • Soy products (e.g. soy meat, tofu).

Discard "bad" food

If You want to lose weight, you will have to give up sweets, fast food, soft drinks and packaged juices, mayonnaise, fatty and fried. Despite the fact that everyone knows it, few who conscientiously follows this principle and the result continues to wear the hated kilograms.

By the way, almost everything harmful there is an alternative. So, in your tea, you can add a substitute instead of sugar, and a salad dressed with Greek yoghurt, will be no less tasty than the salad with mayonnaise.

Eat 5-6 times a day in small portions

Rare power leads to a slow metabolism, so in order to speed up the metabolism, you must eat often without exceeding your daily intake of calories.

Do not get carried away mono-diets

The effects of mono-diet can be very negative. At best, it is the reduction of metabolic rate and return to the previous (if not large) amounts after the diet.


  1. Remember that losing weight = regular exercise+ proper nutrition. Do not neglect neither the one nor the other. Of course, you can lose weight only through dieting, but it will lead to a significant slowing of the metabolism.
  2. Select the time that You will dedicate solely to home workouts. Do not delay and do not put them under any circumstances - the result is not possible without regularity.
  3. Set realistic goals and not expect results in a series of "7 lbs in a week."
  4. Remember your motivation, and don't let others knock You off the "true path". Do not listen to the entreaties of "caring" friends, says that chocolates or cookies will be nothing.
  5. Most of the photographs and, if You honestly work on yourself, after a while You'll start to notice changes.
