Yes, Virginia, there is a fail-safe weight loss solution.
We ignore it because it is so basic. Instead, we are preoccupied with the latest fad diet or workout DVD.
Brian Tracey, a self-help expert, wrote an audio program that includes the fail-safe weight reduction method. Here’s his take on the formula…
MORE EXERCISE, LESS FOOD
Guaranteed every time.
Disappointed? I was the same way. After all, we’ve all heard this message before.
However, if we pay attention to our everyday routines, we will find that this strategy works EVERY TIME. Guaranteed.
How is it possible for this formula to work 100% of the time? It’s as easy as that. And math is always correct. Always.
So, you have a trust issue when it comes to losing weight. Let’s SEE IF IT WORKS.
IT’S A GAME OF NUMBERS
Assume you’ve been gaining 10 pounds every year for the previous three years.
If your daily caloric requirement is 2000, you have been eating 100 calories more each day on average for the previous three years.
If all you want to do is reverse the 30-pound weight gain, you’ll need to cut your daily caloric consumption by 200 calories.
ONE OF THE FOLLOWING MUST BE DONE:
Consume 200 fewer calories every day.
Burn an additional 200 calories every day.
For a total of 200 calories, combine eating less and raising your activity level. For example, eat 100 fewer calories and burn 100 more.
You might drop 30 pounds by making a few lifestyle changes. First, cut your daily muffin consumption in half. Then, instead of using the elevator, climb the stairs in your apartment building every day.
The next month, you might eat the full muffin and park your car a bit further away from your workplace, as well as walk the stairs.
You will lose weight over time. You have no choice. It’s written in the numbers. And you haven’t gone on a diet or fallen into the dreaded “I have to go to the health club” habit.
GUARANTEED WEIGHT LOSS IN 5 STEPS
If reading numbers makes your eyes glaze over, here’s the simple part: all the information you need is available online at www.caloriecontrol.org.
The procedure is as follows:
Determine how much weight you want to lose. EXAMPLE: 20 POUNDS
Determine how many days you want it to take. Be honest with yourself about how much time you have. For example, there are 365 days in a year.
Multiply the pounds in number one by 3500.
EXAMPLE: 20 pounds multiplied by 3500 is 70,000 calories.
To calculate the amount of daily calories, divide the figure from step 3 by the number of days.
70,000 calories divided by 365 days equals 192 calories each day.
Decide if you will eat less or improve your exercise level to reach the amount in step 4. Use the calorie and exercise calculator on the website www.caloriecontrol.org to find out how to eat less and move more.
So, are you going to remain obese for the rest of your life? Or will you rely on the tried-and-true formula? MORE EXERCISE, LESS FOOD
Always remember (and never forget): Take each day as it comes.
