If someone is trying to sell you a diet or weight loss plan, the word most likely to come up is secret. What is the secret to weight loss? The secret to weight loss is that there is no secret. There are rules that if followed, will result in all the weight loss you would ever want.
There is nothing secret or hush-hush about these rules. They’re out in the open for everyone to see. If someone promises to sell you the so called secret, don’t waste your time or money. The rules for weight loss are simple.
First, you need to restrict your calories. Your body burns a certain amount of energy each day by moving around, exercising and simply staying alive. If you decrease your calorie intake so it is under what you burn each day, your body will be forced to start using fat stores for energy. This will cause a decrease in weight.
To make the process faster, you can help your body burn more calories by exercising. Extra movement will burn more calories and increase the amount of fat your body burns from your stomach, thighs, arms and hips. So there it is, the “secret” to weight loss is less eating and more exercising.
