What can I do to efficiently lose weight?

This is the most commonly asked question. My answer is all the great things are simple. When it comes to weight loss, the first thing you need to understand that to lose weight you have to consume fewer calories than you burn. That’s simple!

Boost your Fast Lost with N.E.A.T – (Non-exercise activity thermogenesis)

The first thing that I would suggest to increase is non-exercise activity thermogenesis, or N.E.A.T., along with making smart nutritional choices. Examples of N.E.A.T. are shopping at the store, playing with your kids, walking from the parking lot to your workplace, cleaning the house, having a walk with your dog, using stairs instead of elevators, cooking, etc. In a few words, N.E.A.T. includes all the energy that you spend doing things other than exercise.

*If weight loss is your primary goal, N.E.A.T. is an essential component of that objective. One pound of fat can provide approximately 3,500 calories worth of energy. Increasing your N.E.A.T. by 200 calories which is equivalent to walking about 2 miles, and making smart nutritional choices reducing your caloric content by 300 calories will lead to 500 calories deficit per day. Being consistent with this approach 7 days a week will result in 1 pound weight loss.

Incorporating such small changes as increasing N.E.A.T. and making smart nutritional choices will build a foundation for successful long-lasting weight loss.
