Ditch The Gym And Still Lose Those Pounds –

Maintaining a healthy weight can also better your physical mobility, energy levels, self-confidence, and mood.2

So how do you knock off the extra pounds without weights and fancy machines? The equation governing weight loss is very simple: you need to expend more energy than you take in through food. And that means watching what you eat and finding other ways to burn calories.3

Watch What You Eat

It goes without saying that eating right has a big role in weight management. An average adult male with a sedentary lifestyle uses about 2000 to 2400 calories per day while an adult woman uses about 1600 to 2000 calories. But most of us take in much more than that, leading to those magnificent love handles.4

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, losing weight slowly and steadily, rather than a drastic weight loss, helps to keep it off. So target about one to two pounds per week. A pound translates to about 3500 calories, which means reducing your intake by 500-1000 calories per day.5

But remember, cutting down calories suddenly or taking in less than 800 calories per day for a long time can have a serious impact on your health, including your heart health.6
