How to lose 30 lb in 30 days… It sounds difficult but also promising, doesn’t it? We are going to teach you how to lose 30 lb in 30 days, but in a way that will probably be different than the way you are thinking, because, first of all, losing 30 lb in 30 days is quite… difficult, to not say impossible.
To lose 30 lb in 30 days you’ll have to lose 1 lb per day, which is impossible. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one should aim to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week. This will lead to 8 pounds burned in 30 days. From 8 to 30 lbs… That’s a huge difference, right? Thus, having the right mindset and being realistic is a must before starting such a unrealistic goal. With this said, starting a 30 days goal is something worthy of doing since it will definitely prepare you for what is to come. If your goal is to lose 30 lb, you can do it along the way, but the thing is starting. Starting something is what people consider the most difficult thing to do, second to being both consistent and disciplined through the process.
How to start the adventure of losing weight.
First of all, you have to be committed to it. Like a religious person you’ll have to make some changes in your life-style in order to bring results. If you are not strong willed, you’ll probably notice less results than expected, but if you stick to it like a champion, you’ll definitely reap what you sow.
Diet is probably the best way to start. With the help of a journal, you should keep track on what you are eating. What you eat ultimately decides how many calories your body will be taking from food.
To start losing weight you have to create a calories deficit. The best way to do this is by committing to diet and becoming more physically active.
There are some rules to follow when it comes to diet, but we recommend you the followings:
- Quit (or reduce) eating oily foods and reduce how many carbs you take from food, unless you are using them for training. Stuff like pasta, cereal, bread, potatoes, rice and fried food with breading are options.
- There are some options when it comes to food that anyone should add, no matter if it’s to lose or gain weight: proteins. Stuff like pork, chicken breast, beef are good options. Some like to eat fish, too. Beans are nice options, along vegetables.
One big thing you should avoid is added sugar and sugary food. These are big calories sources which should be avoided as much as possible.
When it comes to eating, you have to make sure to track what you eat and burn it down with exercises. Burn from 500 to 1,000 calories per day and you’ll be losing from 1 to 2 pounds per week.
Exercise for 60 minutes doing moderate cardio-vascular training a day and you’ll be burning more calories than you think. At the end of the month, you’ll certainly notice the difference.
