That’s it. There’s nothing else to it. Except for health issues that may affect your weight, losing weight is pure mathematics. Your body burns calories all the time. Just by reading this blog you are burning some. Maybe not many, but you are.
If you are overweight and want to lose a few pounds, eat fewer calories or increase your physical activity to burn more calories— ideally both. If you eat fewer calories than your body burns, you will lose weight. Guaranteed. You will drop sizes like hot potatoes. (By the way: one medium-sized baked potato equals 170 calories.)
The reason why we are revealing this ‘secret’ here is to illustrate an interesting truth about people. The statements mentioned above are no secret. The problem is that people don’t want to do what must be done to lose weight. They don’t want to eat less or exercise. They want the impossible: a miracle diet, a pill to make all their body fat disappear, perhaps even bitter tasting tea that makes them lose four pounds a week without doing anything different.
Therein lies a fundamental problem in human beings: they want the glorious results, but they don’t want to pay the price for them.
The weight loss industry shouts ‘Thank you!’
So whatever health issue you may be going through at the moment, why not also stop by at one of our Tuesday meetings, where you can talk about the matters concerning your health.
