It is a fact. You can actually lose up to 10 pounds in 30 days and trust me, it’s a pretty realistic aim to have. In fact, going for losing more than 10 pounds in this time span, say in multiples of 10 only, can prove to be bad for your health. Keeping the goal of losing 10 pounds will allow you to not be too restricted and to lose weight in a healthy manner. Regular exercise and the right amount of dieting (doesn’t have to be too much) is the perfect combo to achieve this.
First and foremost, reduce the number of calories you take in on a daily basis, like cut it down by approximately 500 calories each day. Always spend that extra minute to check the calories content on each food item you purchase. The best way to check on yourself is to maintain an account of exactly what goes inside you, be it food or drink, and calculate the total calories using a calorie counter. This will help you to cut down accordingly. It’s not only about eating less; you must eat right to get desired results. Load up on the green, leafy vegetables and fruits and remove the sugars and carbohydrates from your meal plan as much as you can. Eating homemade food is a much better alternative than eating out, especially during this month. Stick to drinking lots of water and if you really can’t be without that regular cup of coffee for a while, opt for black coffee.
Make sure you exercise each and every day. Exercise in any form, be it swimming, cycling, treadmill, running etc- it’ll all count. Track how much weight you are losing, but don’t do it every day if you tend to get de motivated easily- just do it regularly to know your progress. Try not to go back to square one after the month is over- stick to your plan so that your weight gets a chance to get stabilized for a while. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s a promise that it’ll all be worth it in the end.
