Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): Your basal metabolic rate is the fancy way of saying your metabolism. Now metabolism depends on a couple of things – gender, age, weight, and muscle mass all play a factor in determining your metabolism. Activity Level: Obviously most of us do a lot more with our day than simply lying around in bed breathing.
So between basal metabolic rate and activity level we have two very critical pieces in our weight-loss puzzle. Calories Consumed: I want to start this section by getting one thing very clear – calories are a good thing!
In its most general terms, most people’s BMR is between 1200 and 1600 cal (depends on age, gender, weight, etc).
This question is so prominent that there is a multibillion dollar industry centered around answering it. This is a measure of the energy required to carry out the simplest bodily functions that keep you alive.
Think about it – from fad diets to weight-loss pills; from at home exercise equipment to DVD series – people spend millions upon millions of dollars trying to accomplish this one feat. There is no get-skinny-quick piece of equipment that I am going to recommend right now that is going to help you shred pounds. Think about BMR like this: if you woke up in the morning but then stayed in your bed all day long your body would still require a small amount of energy to stay alive.
Basically that energy required to keep your body alive plus the energy required to do anything else equals the amount of total energy you expend in one day. If you have the absolute very best diet in the world and only eat around 2000 cal per day but then spend most of your day inactive and sedentary you will not lose weight! On the other hand, if you spend 2 to 3 hours working out every day and are super active, but then you go home and your diet is pizza and potato chips, you are not going to lose weight. If you consume 3000 calories but only burn off 2500 of them, you can now see where the problem is!
Today I am sharing the secret that will guaranteed 100%, no-questions-asked, no-doubt–about–it, help you to lose weight! Your body will actually start to metabolize those fat cells that were stored up when we ate too much and you start to lose fat weight!

You must find a healthy balance between a healthy, reasonable number of calories that work for you and and appropriate activity level. Unlike other fads, gimmicks, and products on the market which may or may not be effective, this method will work 100% of the time for 100% of people who put in the right amount of work. I am going to give you every tool that you need to not only lose weight, But to do it successfully and keep it off. So, when the calories we consume are greater than the day’s energy expenditure, the result is we put on extra fat.

Unless you make pretty big changes to what you eat and how you exercise, losing weight can be a complicated process. Nutritionists from major institutions like the Harvard School of Public Health and the American Heart Association agree that combining vigorous cardiovascular exercise with strength training and a well-balanced, reduced-calorie diet is the safest and most effective way to stimulate effective weight reduction. Give yourself permission to start with just 20-minute segments, three times per week if that is all you can manage to fit into your schedule.
Pen these exercise times into your calendar and do not cancel except in absolute emergencies. Alternate a minute or two of aerobic moves like jumping jacks, football runs, jump rope, shadow boxing and jogging in place with a minute or two of strength training moves like squats, lunges, triceps dips, crunches and push-ups.
Perform these alternating moves for the duration of your allotted workout time, repeating exercises if necessary.
Add dumbbells, resistance tubing or selectorized equipment to your strength training moves and use a heart rate monitor to gauge your work zone during cardio segments.
Seek to get your heart rate into 65 to 80 percent of your maximal heart rate zone during the aerobic bouts.
Reorder the exercises, or add in new ones like back rows, front arm raises, suicide runs and treadmill speed drills. If you find more time in your calendar for exercise, try committing to American College of Sports Medicine guidelines for weight loss.

Exercise moderately for an hour at least five times per week and strength train at least two, nonconsecutive days per week. Consume about 500 to 1,000 calories less than you burn in a day to trim one or two pounds of weight a week. Re-evaluate your goals if such a reduction means you consume less than 1,200 calories a day as a woman or 1,600 as a man, which is the minimum daily calorie count recommended by the National Institutes of Health. Keep a food journal to identify places where you can cut calories without feeling deprived--perhaps the soda at lunch or crusts of your child's grilled cheese. Switch to monounsaturated fats, and use olive oil for cooking instead of butter or margarine and peanut butter on your toast instead of cream cheese, for example.
Use a food scale and weigh out snacks, proteins and grains to determine exactly what a 3-oz serving of meat or 1 oz. Measure grains using half-cup measuring cups, and oils using teaspoons to learn to eyeball proper amounts for the future. This leads to acute feelings of hunger and will likely make you over-consume at the next opportunity. You also need proper fuel to exercise and to help with muscle recovery, which happens after your workouts. Consider hiring a trainer for even a few sessions to tweak your form and get suggestions for additional exercises to incorporate into your routine. If you do better with a structured diet, choose one that appeals to your taste buds and fits your lifestyle rather than the latest fad. Researchers from Harvard University found that a low-calorie diet, regardless of its specific breakdown in terms of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, leads to weight loss.
