It’s Really Simple
How do you lose weight without counting calories or dieting? Well, it’s actually quite simple. But there is something that you need to know if you really want to lose weight that actually lasts.
How Weight Loss Works
When it comes to losing weight, it is largely due to energy balance. In other words, losing or gaining weight IS because of the overall calories you consume. Although calories do dictate how you adjust your weight, this doesn’t mean you need to focus on counting calories OR what some people would consider dieting. Plenty of people lose weight without following a strict diet and counting calories, but, you should understand that at the end of the day, calories will dictate your goals. With that said, now we can look at how you can lose weight without counting calories directly.
What Can You Do?
Since we already established that calories from food or drink will dictate your weight loss goals, you need to find a way to eat that keeps your calories in check, without “counting calories.” One of the best ways I have found to do this is through eating high volume, low calorie foods. These are foods that make it “feel” like you are eating a large amount of food and thus calories, but don’t have a large calorie toll with them. Examples of foods like this are high in fiber or protein, such as lean meats, vegetables, whole grains, etc. Compared to eating something like a pop-tart. Two pop-tarts, which is what is in a package, has 400 calories. Compare this to eating 400 calories of broccoli, which is nearly 13 cups of food. Simply eating something like broccoli vs a pop-tart will almost guarantee you to eat less, even if you don’t count the calories in it. But that’s not all. Another really easy substitution is soda. A normal can of soda has about 140 calories in it, compared to diet soda which has none. Since you aren’t actively “counting” the calories of the soda, making that substitution could lead to you taking in 100s of less calories a day without changing much.
