Understanding Your BMR and Beyond.

To embark on a successful weight loss journey, it's essential to begin by understanding your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) – the number of calories your body needs at rest. This forms the foundation upon which your calorie management plan is built.

Once you have your BMR, you can factor in your activity level (1.2 sedentary, 1.8 super active) then you will have your maintenance calories. From there you can decide what kind of deficit or surplus you'd like to be in.

To make it super easy for yourself, go online, use the Harris Benedict calculator and enter your details, be honest about your energy expenditure and go from there.

Fine-Tuning Your Caloric Intake

Now comes the exciting part – choosing your calorie deficit. This is the key to weight loss. However, it's crucial not to dive into extreme restrictions. Instead, find a balance that works for you and doesn't leave you feeling deprived. Remember, it's about sustainable habits for long-term success.

Diet and Tracking Breaks: Nourishing the Mind and Body

In the pursuit of your goals, it's important to recognise the significance of diet breaks and tracking breaks. Your body needs periods of rest and relaxation to reset and prepare for the next phase. These breaks prevent burnout, enhance your mental well-being, and contribute to a healthier relationship with food.
