Therefore, following are ways as to how to lose weight in a month :
Prepare yourself to reach the ultimate goal
Are you lying down on your favourite couch stuffing all the junk food and wondering about how to lose weight? You need to stop being a couch potato and grab a pen and jot down your plan as to how you are actually going to lose some weight in this one month. If possible, you need to maintain a journal of what food you intake in every meal in a day. Keeping a food journal has many benefits. First, you keep track of what all you are eating which thereby stands guard against the unhealthy things that you might end up eating. Secondly, a food log just may prove to be a reality check about your current situation.
A study revealed that those people who had a food journal lost twice the weight of those who did not have.
You need to plan about not only your diet but also about how much you should exercise in this one month so that you lose weight in the most efficient manner. In addition, you need to check out some techniques of exercising, which will help you in the long run.
In addition, before starting any dieting or exercises you must remember that excessive weight loss is bad for your health and ineffective. The faster you lose your weight; the chances of gaining it quick are quite high.
Set a limit to your calorie intake
If you want to lose weight, you will need to cut some of the calorie intake each day. All the things you eat matters in a diet. Since you are maintaining a food journal for whatever you eat every day, write down the calories that each food item contains in your meals. Subtract 500 calories each day. You need to prepare a diet chart which includes low-calorie and highly nutritious food items. These food items may include fruits and vegetables, whole grains and beans. These items are nutritious and have rich fibre content. Fibre adds bulk to your food, which thereby helps you to control your appetite. While you may be tempted to lose weight as quickly as possible but you must remember that average calorie intake by a woman is 1,200 calories per day and for a man it is 1,800 calories per day. Your diet chart may also include lean protein such as poultry, fish, lean red meat, and eggs.
Increase the amount of exercise
First of all, remember that the task of losing weight cannot be achieved overnight. It requires time and patience. Therefore, when you decide to start exercising, you need to take baby steps while increasing the level of your exercises if you are living a sedentary lifestyle. There are many training programs available nowadays. You may get a gym membership, or watch youtube videos on different kinds of exercise, or even ride a bicycle. There are copious ways to burn your calories. It doesn’t really matter that what you do to burn your calories or how you do it, you should make sure that you do it for 3 days a week or everyday if it some light activity like jogging. Engross yourself in physical activities like hiking, running, swimming, dancing. Pick up any activity that you have interest in and you love doing. You just need to burn some calories in whatever exercise you choose.
