Get Rid Of 3,500 Calories, Get Rid Of 1 Pound

Did you know that in order to lose one pound of weight, you essentially need to get rid of 3,500 calories? That may sound like a large number, but when you take a moment to figure out how many calories you need to eat on a daily basis you will find that by shaving off a few hundred calories per day, you will be able to lose at least a pound each and every week.
Even though a pound per week may not seem like significant weight loss, looking at the bigger picture, a pound each week equates to approximately four pounds per month. Over a six month period that is twenty four pounds!
Would you like to take off twenty four pounds from what you are currently weighing right now?
That's twenty four pounds in six months by merely losing one pound per week shaving calories off your daily consumption amount. In order to be effective with cutting calories, one of the best ways to target and track this process is by using a calorie counter.
Before you throw your hands up in the air and think here comes a sales pitch, let me tell you that most calorie counters are absolutely free to use. Better yet, they can even be accessed directly from your cellular device if you have a smartphone such as a BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, or Galaxy.
If you don't have a phone capable of running applications, you can always simply use their online tools at their websites to access the same information. The only difference would be the convenience and portability factor that comes with being able to access the calorie counter on the go.
Regardless of which method you use, there's no reason why you can't start focusing on lowering your daily calorie consumption through the use of an effective calorie counter.
Try one out and see how beneficial they can be to help you stay focused on your efforts to lose weight. When your eyes are opened to the actual nutritional content of some of the food choices you have made in the past, or are currently thinking about, you may find yourself making more health conscious choices. Your efforts will be greatly increased when you also tie in regular exercise which will additionally help burn extra calories off your daily total.
Remember, when you are able to get rid of 3,500 calories, you will get rid of one pound. Naturally don't try and go for that full amount in one or two days, but when you use a calorie counter to help focus on each individual day, you will find yourself able to shave a few hundred calories off your daily allowance by eating only healthy choices.
