The basic fundamental of weight loss is that you need to take in less energy that you expend. This means consuming fewer calories from your food than your body needs to function and move. Or, alternatively burn those excess calories consumed in the diet through doing more physical activity. The scientists called this 'negative energy balance'.
By sticking to a reduced daily calorie allowance you can soon achieve your goal weight. Our calorie counted meal plans are designed to reduce your weight at levels that are safe for long-term weight loss. Our meal plans are also perfectly balanced to provide all the nutrients your body needs to keep fit and healthy. Start enjoying our calorie counted meals today to see what difference you could make.
Keeping a food diary can double a person's weight loss according to a study from the Kaiser Permanente’s Centre for Health Research in the USA. They have conducted one of the largest weight loss studies and they found that the more food records subjects kept, the more weight they lost. Those who kept a daily food record lost twice as much weight as those who kept no records. The study demonstrated the important of logging your food intake to the success of weight loss and weight maintenance. The researchers explained that by keeping a log of what you consume works because it makes you accountable to yourself.
Sometimes by logging everything we eat we can identify where the extra calories are coming from that we just didn't realise. So if you think nothing of having a glass of wine with your evening meal, sugar in your tea, or takeout pizza at the weekend then make sure you look to see how many calories each of these contain. Workout the damage over the year and you'll think twice about being a repeat offender!
It is a myth that by eating large quantities of protein or protein shakes you will automatically get bigger and stronger.
The only way that you can increase your muscle mass it to follow a structured strength training programme. This needs to be supported by a diet high in energy to support training and daily requirements like the meal plans provided by Weightplan.
Resistance training provides a stimulus which helps the body adapt to the increased working load which results in muscle gain. Your genetics will also play a large part in how your body will respond to this type of training.
The muscles need fuel to be able to produce energy and this is provided from the food we consume. The muscle needs energy for power and to be able to grow and repair. Carbohydrate is needed to fuel almost every type of activity and it is stored in the muscles and liver as glycogen. A good store of glycogen will allow you to train at your optimal intensity and help your achieve a greater training effect. The body however, can only stores a limited amount of carbohydrate so it is important to eat adequate amounts before, during and after training to meet the fuel demands.
Our meal plans are also perfectly balanced to provide all the nutrients your body needs to keep yourself strong, fit and healthy. Why second guess your nutrition and limit your muscle building results? Start enjoying our meal plans today to see what difference you could make.
