Which is better, popping a few diet pills or counting calories?
When people think of counting calories, they generally think of not being able to eat what they want and when they want it. They don’t think of diet pills. They picture boring health diets and hard work at the gym. This is not necessarily true, and in this article, I’ll show you why.
There’s a general rule that you should follow as part of a weight loss diet. That rule is that if you eat more calories than you burn, you are going to gain weight. If you eat less calories than you burn, you are going to lose weight (even without diet pills). Adding a good diet pill or diet supplement makes it even better. Otherwise, you run the risk of eating your “maintenance calories,” and staying at the same weight. You can find out your maintenance calories by multiplying your current body weight by 10. For example, if a person weighs 180 pounds, he/she would have to multiply 180 by 10 to find out his/her maintenance calories. It turns out to be 1,800. This is the amount of calories that person needs to eat every day to maintain his/her current weight of 180lbs, hence the term “maintenance calories.”
Now, from my own personal experience, when I complete 30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise on the exercise bike at my local gym, I usually burn around 200 calories even without diet pills. However, there is an easier way to burn 200 calories without all of that hard work. Simply take some energizing weight loss products and eat 200 calories less then your maintenance! For example, if a person’s maintenance calories is 1,800, he/she can burn 200 calories a day by working hard on the exercise bike for about 30 minutes every day of the week without diet pills. Or, he/she can simply not eat those 200 calories and instead eat 1,600 calories per day.
Now, I’m a big fan of fitness exercise (especially lifting weights). However, for the person who lives a sedentary lifestyle, this is fantastic.
So, just to go over it all:
- Find out your maintenance
calories by multiplying your body weight by 10.
- Check the nutrition facts labels on the back of the
foods you eat to count the calories of the food.
- At the end of the day, your total calories should add
up to 200 calories less than your maintenance calories.
Remember, counting calories might seem like a bit of a pain at first. However, after a while, you will get used to it. It’ll become a habit like anything else in life does. It’ll become part of your everyday routine. Just give it a shot. After a while, when you start to notice some results, you’ll never look back! And please remember, eat slower so that you give yourself a chance to get full and take your diet pills. Wait 10-15 minutes after you are finished eating and see if you REALLY are hungry. Listen to your body, give it a chance. Please note that you should only multiply your bodyweight by 10 if you live a sedentary lifestyle. If you are a bodybuilder (like myself) or some other type of hardcore athlete, multiply your bodyweight by 15, then subtract 500 from that number. If you eat up to that amount of calories per day, you will lose one pound of fat per week without sacrificing muscle loss. also, don’t be afraid to help things along with the diet pills.
Thank you very much and good luck on your journey.
Notice how this second example is broken down into easy-to-follow steps. It makes it a much better plan, since you are least likely to fail on this plan, unlike the first example above.
In conclusion, remember that YOU CAN DO IT! You can achieve your weight loss diet goals. Just remember not to take on the overwhelming responsibility of doing it all at once or without the right diet pills to aid your effort. Plan it out, and create mini-goals. Remember, failing to plan is planning to fail.
