Simple Losing Weight Tips on How to Get Lean in 1 Month
Here are eight simple tips to losing weight and getting lean in one month … and keeping it off!
Ration control; you have to control the amount of food you take in per day. Let’s say you usually overeat and consume about 2000 calories per day from intake of solid food, reducing this number by 25% is a nice strategy for maintaining a healthy diet; consume only about 500 calories per day. The idea here is to simply cut your intake; consume less, it’s no brainer strategy.
Eating a beef once in a while is no big deal, the idea is to always eat fresh, tasty and healthy food. A Big Mac, for instance, has about 563 calories in it while a grilled Sirloin steak has only 324 calories, notice the difference? Change your diet; swipe your crisps for veggies once in a while and watch it become a habit. It might be hard the first time, but persistence is what keeps you going. When you follow this step, you’ll add fiber and health while losing hundreds of calories per day.
Exercise Exercise Exercise! This is another strategy you must abide with. You have to make yourself more active, get your metabolism going; do some running in the morning, push and pull ups, play some soccer and I’m not talking about video games, go for a swim, do some hiking and so many other stuff. Hit the gym from time to time, use it and burn about 300 calories per session.

Get rid of carbonated drinks. Water contains zero calories but drinks like 600ml Coke has about 258 calories in it, bet you didn’t know that. There really isn’t much to say here, you just have to dispose of those fizzy drinks and build some regular water intake.
Let’s face facts with regards to your diet; you consume mostly pastries, burgers and heavy shakes, energy drinks, a collection of biscuits in your office drawer, chocolates at night, cigarette smoking, adding Nutella to basically everything you eat, always sitting at a spot facing the screen of your computer. “yes, I’d like some fries to go with that.”
