So, you’re on a mission to ditch the weight, you’ve overhauled your routine and you’re hitting spinning and Yoga like there’s no tomorrow, not to mention the super clean, healthy diet you’ve put yourself on… But for some reason the weight doesn’t seem to be shifting…?
It seems you can have too much of a good thing after all..!
Calories in, calories out. If you burn off the same number of calories as you consume in that day, that’s “Eucalories” and your body won’t need to burn any excess fat to create energy or store those calories, (neither will it have any excess calories to store). Your body weight will remain the same.
If fat loss is what you’re after, you will have to consume less calories than you’ll burn on a daily basis. 1 pound of fat = 3500 calories. So, in order to burn 1 pound of fat in a week, you will have to reduce the number of calories you consume each day by 500. If you want to burn 2 pounds of fat per week, you’ll have t0 cut the amount of calories you consume each day by 1000.
