Controlled and progressive weight loss is recommended by the British Dietetic Association (BDA).
It is recommended that eating 500 calories less than your norm each day as part of a healthy balanced diet will result in ~ 1lbs (0.5kg) weight loss each week.
Combine this with 3-5 sessions of intense physical activity i.e. increased heart rate, lasting 40-60 minutes a week and the rate of weight loss could double to approximately 2lbs (1kg)!
In addition you can use FAT LOSS or FAT METABOLISING supplements, which increase metabolic rate (fat burning capability) and suppress appetite. The rate of weight loss could increase further to approximately 3-4lbs (1.5-2kg) a week!
This is the optimum way to produce fast and sustainable results without resorting to starvation, a fad diet or extreme exercise.
Weight loss is different for everyone. For some people, the pounds drop off easily while others see little or no changes despite following guidelines. If this sounds familiar, check out our article this afternoon on how to diet and train for your body type to produce the results you want!
