What is the right way to lose weight? Let's start with the fact that you need to realize that you don't want to just see the number on the scale to go down. Why? because often when you start losing weight and you're not seeing any results..that is because you are probably losing water weight or if you're not eating enough protein you start losing muscle and you DO NOT want that!
So you need to understand that you want to lose FAT!
A lot of people think when they start losing weight they can just stop eating..well yes if you stop eating you will lose weight, but when you start to eat normal again all of the weight will gain back!
so therefor it is very important to have well balanced diet.
make sure your 'diet' to consist of the 3 main nutrions:
your body get its energy from carbohydrates and fats.
Make sure your diet is filled with greens because you're eating low calories you need to eat more volume, so fill your plate with greens next to your piece of meat and carb sources!
