How I feel every Monday after my cheat weekends, haha
me. right now. this very moment.
You wont lose a substantial amount of fat in a month. In fact, 4-6 weeks is where people usually start seeing their results. 1-2lbs per week is a healthy weight loss so you can lose 4-8 healthy pounds, but remember poundage doesn’t really mean anything. You can lose fat and gain muscle and mot see the number move much at all. I don’t ever suggest measuring weightloss by pounds. I go by tape measure or pictures. Check out my FAQ for altering body composition, but I’m telling you right now, there is no quick fix to lose fat in a month. Clean eating and exercising. That’s all you need. That’s the magic pill. You can lose some, I’m not trying to discourage you or anything, it’s just very difficult in such a short amount of time without going to drastic unhealthy measures.
I thought this was well-covered in the fitblr community, but since I keep seeing posts about this, and I’ve seen people give advice that makes that seem okay, I’m going to try to explain why it’s not. I’ve made this mistake before. I wish people would do a bit more research…
You are completely right, never go below 1200. In fact, most people don’t even have a 1200 BMR, unless you’re TINY. 1200 is the lowest for a small woman, that’s why you see that number tossed around a lot…. well that and people think cutting calories will help you lose weight. HERE is an article that I give out a lot explaining why eating 1200 calories and working out will be killer on your body….
A lot of the calculators are faulty. THIS one I trust. It calculates your BMR. This number is what your body needs to survive - breathing, heart beat, blinking, thinking, temperature, etc. It’s what your body would burn if you laid in bed all day and did absolutely NOTHING. So if you’re working out, calculate accordingly…. Sooooooo saaaay you get 1500 for your BMR. If you burn 600 at the gym that brings your total caloric burn number to 2100. If you want to lose a pound a week (a healthy weight loss) then -500, so you’d eat 1600. I find that most bodies thrive when you never eat below your BMR. So rather burn your calories at the gym, don’t cut them from your food. Nutrition is essential! <3
If your goal is to gain weight, then eat more than your expenditure… but in healthy foods haha. I can’t tell you how many times I see people trying to gain weight but all the eat is McDonalds >.<
New entrance to my favorite pub. I’m one happy girl. 😄
