Weight Loss Step 3 - Keep a Journal and Plan
Keeping a journal is one of the only ways that you will be accountable to do well.
Planning is something that is great too.
We will talk a little bit about the two of these elements to weight loss step 3.
1. Keeping a Journal
This is something that will take a few more minutes to do in your day.
Write down EVERYTHING you eat, including calories.
Men should be eating 2,400-2,800 calories a day, and women should be eating 1,500-1,800 calories a day to be able to lose weight in a good time.
Keeping a journal will give you accountability, and will allow you to really see how much you eat in a day!
You can also plan out your biggest meals like lunch and dinner and save more calories for them and cut back on a snack or two.
2. Planning Ahead
Planning ahead is something that most people don't do on a diet.
They don't think about how they are going to get to point A and point B.
Plan ahead, the calories to be eaten, the calories being burned, all by estimate. (There are calorie burning calculators online)
As a note on keeping a journal and planning ahead, if you cheat, you are only hurting yourself and your weight loss. You aren't hurting me!
Planning ahead will also keep you from being stagnant in your weight loss program, allowing you to adequately see what is happening in your diet.
Looking at these two elements to weight loss step 3 has been excellent for weight loss.
It is the turning point in your weight loss journey.
This is when you really begin to see the results.
You should be well on your way to reaching your 3-5 pounds lost in your first couple of weeks.
NOTE: You should always consult a doctor before beginning a diet. This is just my opinion on a diet and is what I did to lose 30+ pounds! Disclaimer: You are responsible for the results that you get from this diet.
I have done hundreds of hours of researching facts and figures that have been proven hundreds and thousands of times online.
I take those facts and figures to give you a diet where you don't starve and a new way to diet!
Hope you have enjoyed step 3!
