How do you lose weight?

For some people, their resting metabolic rate can be slightly higher or lower than the average ones due to genetic factors or other reasons. Our weight also determines how many calories we burn at rest -- the more calories required to maintain your body, the greater your body weight.

Lifestyle and work habits partially determine how many calories we need each day. Someone whose job involves heavy physical labor will naturally burn more calories in a day than someone who sits at a desk most of the day without even moving. For people who do not have jobs that require intense physical activity, exercise or increased physical activity can increase the number of calories burned.

The most effective way to lose weight is to reduce the number of calories consumed while increasing the number of calories burnt through physical activity. In order to lose 1 pound, one need an approximately 3,500 calories of energy consumption. Wee can achieve this either by cutting our food intake or by increasing our physical activity, or ideally, by combining both. Any activities we do throughout the day are added to the basal metabolic rate which is to determine the total number of calories you burn each day.

Physical activity is an important weight loss tool, but how much you need varies from person to person. The guidelines recommend at least 250 minutes per week, which comes out to about 50 minutes, 5 days a week. If you're a beginner, start small, for example with 3 days of cardio for 15-30 minutes, gradually adding time each week to give your body time to adapt.
