Good and Healthy Way to Lose Weight Fast

There are a lot of diets out there, all of them with different names and characteristics. But, does this magic diet, that will end our weight problems without making us feel tired and overwhelmed, really exist? Well, I have found that this diet does exist.

To have a better understanding of this we have to realize that the human body is an adaptable machine and our metabolism is always looking for adaptation even in the most extreme conditions. Having said that, it is easy to affirm that we have to change our diet constantly in order to trick our metabolism and lose weight faster. Does it sound complicated? Trust me; it is not complicated at all.

We do this all the time without even notice it. We change our meals day by day. The problem is: we don´t know exactly what we are doing.

The best way to drop fat is by counting the calories per day that we eat everyday.
If you eat less calories per day than the necessary amount, you are going to lose weight. On the contrary, if you eat more calories per day than the necessary amount, you are going to reverse the results. It is as simple as that.

This is the secret the nutritionists, bodybuilders, and now regular people, like you and me, know. I have to say that with this method I have lost more than 50 pounds in less than three months.

Now that I have explained the ´what´, it is time for me to explain the ´how´.

How many calories a day to lose weight
This is in fact pretty simple. A basic rule that bodybuilders use all the time is to multiply your current weight by 15. The result is the amount of calories per day that your body needs to maintain your current weight. This is the amount of calories that you actually are eating every single day.

For example:
Let´s say that your current weight is 190 pounds.
Then the amount of calories per day that you have to eat to maintain your current weight will be:
190 x 15 = 2,850 calories per day
2,850 calories is the amount of calories needed to keep you current weight permanently.

What if I want to lose weight with this method? Simple. You only have to subtract 500 calories from this result and you will be losing weight in no time.

Let´s get back to the last example. If your weight is 190 pounds then the formula will be:
190 x 15 - 500 = 2,350 calories per day
2,350 calories per day is the amount of calories needed for you to lose weight.

Rinse and repeat
As I said at the beginning, your body will try to get used to this new regime, looking for adaptation. You will lose weight for a few days, then your body will adapt and you will stop losing weight. At this point you only have to repeat the formula.

Let´s say that your new weight is 180 pounds, the new amount of calories per day will be as follow:
180 x 15 - 500 = 2200 calories per day

If what you want is to gain some weight, although this is not the topic of this article, you only have to add 500 (instead of subtract) calories to the above formula.

The above method is recommended for people with more than 115 pounds. Do not eat less than 1,200 calories a day or your health will be in danger.
