People seem to make setting up a fat loss diet more complicated than it needs to be. A fat loss diet that works every time is to eat less calories than what you burn. If you do this, you will lose fat! The problem is that people
seem to make this more complicated than they need to.
You Need To Know How Many Calories You Burn to Set Up Your Fat Loss
Your Basic Metabolic Rate, or BMR, is how many calories you burn each day
just by being alive. This doesn’t include calories burned by activities. A rough
estimate of BMR is simply your body weight multiplied by 10. Knowing this number
is crucial in setting up a great fat loss diet. If you want to know a much more
accurate number do a Google search for “BMR calculator”.
How Many Calories to Consume on Your Fat Loss Diet.
So to setup your fat loss diet, you will need to eat less than you burn. If
you are active, you will burn more than your BMR. To make sure your fat loss

main focus. If you naturally like to eat many meals throughout the day, then eat
5-6 times per day. If you do better just eating 3-4 times per day, then setup
your fat loss diet in that manner. A good fat loss diet is flexible, since
people differ in their eating patterns. I do better if I stick to just 3
meals each day and I have been very successful at losing body fat.
If You Get Hungry During Your Fat Loss Diet.
The hardest part of a fat loss diet is the first week or two. You will get
hungry. Some things that have helped me in the past is to eat a Fuji Apple
before a meal. The pectin seems to fill your stomach and it doesn’t take
much food to feel “full”. I also drink 2-3 cups of green tea instead of snacking
in between meals. The tea gives you energy, is healthy, and is a natural
