There are 3,500 calories per pound of body fat, so unless you`re planning to run a marathon every day, you better follow a healthy, low-fat, nutritious program.
Your body is repaired through lean quality protein, so adequate protein consumption is essential for muscle growth. Although the majority of my clients have no intention of building extreme amounts of muscle, they must understand that by adding muscle to their frame, they make their body use more calories to sustain that muscle, therefore lessening the chance that those calories will be converted into fat.
"You are what you eat" is never more true than when you`re trying to burn excess body fat and shape up. It`s essential to realize that it takes both proper nutrition and exercise (especially resistance training with weights/machines) to get the results you`re looking for. A good diet isn't enough!
All in all, there are two major aspects to physical fitness; maintaining a safe and healthy diet, and consistently engaging in a personalized fitness routine. For a few added tips on nutrition, consult the tips to the right.
For every 100 calories of plain lettuce you eat, it takes your body 120 calories to burn it.
Sugars are the first thing to be converted into fat if they are not used as energy. Be aware that many so-called "fat-free" products are laced with sugar.
Count your calories. Chicken-25 calories/ounce, Dry Baked Potato-30 calories/ounce, Yam-45 calories/ounce, Egg white-20 calories.
No carb diets are a no-no. 60% Complex Carbs, 30% Lean Proteins, and 10% or less Fats is a safe bet.
Be sure to drink at least one gallon of water a day. This will help flush impurities out of your system and prevent kidney stones, which can become a problem when consuming large amounts of protein.
