Smart Healthy Steps to Lose Weight

There’s no potion for dropping pounds fast. However successful, long-term weight loss comes

down to one simple thing: a caloric deficit. Essentially, that means burning more calories than

you take in. You can do that by cutting calories and exercising more. Take the smarter approach

by following these steps.

1. Set a Realistic Goal

- Having a goal weight in mind makes it easier to stay focused and on track in the next

phase of your goal. For example, 4 pounds in two weeks will take discipline and

commitment, but it's an achievable goal. Anything more than that is unrealistic and

unhealthy.

2. know your need

- Knowing how much your body burns and how much it needs is essential for your

weight loss journey.

3. Track Calories and Macros

- Write down everything you eat each day or record it in an app.

- Make sure you're eating a healthy balance of macronutrients. That's include

carbohydrates, protein, and fat.

- An ideal macro ratio is 40% carbs, 30% protein, and 30% fat.

 Protein should come from lean poultry or fish, or vegetarian sources like beans and tofu.

 Carbs from whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables.

 Healthy fats from sources like olive oil, avocados, raw nuts, and nut butter.

4. Be Strategic About Meals

- Start your day with high protein breakfast followed by a mid-morning snack, lunch with

lots of fiber to keep you full, mid-afternoon snack and in the evening a rich healthy

dinner will keep you full and satisfied. This way you won’t be looking for junk easy and

fast food here and there during the day.

5. Drink More Water

- Dehydration can cause your body to retain water, which can make you look bloated.

Also, because thirst can often be confused for hunger, drinking water throughout the day

or before a meal can help you avoid overeating or mindless snacking.

6. Stay active

- The other side of the equation is burning calories, which means being more active to

burn more fat, get in shape, reach your goal.
