Not many people can agree with the idea of losing weight by sticking to one meal per day. Losing more weight calls for eating less. The reality is that not many people will buy into the idea of losing weight by taking one meal. They will easily reconcile with the idea of losing more weight when they take more food and supplement this with more exercises. This is the worst idea when it comes to losing weight. There are many health and fitness experts who agree with this viewpoint.
There is some basis to support the idea of losing more weight when you take six meals a day. The only problem with it is that rarely so people know how it works, and therefore end up doing it wrong, much to their disappointment. What could work in such a case is to identify six meals which you can take throughout the day, that when added, will not surpass the daily calorie figure needed by your body for fuel. You can use the case of someone who needs 2000 calories from food in a day. If they decide to follow the diet of six meals a day in order to lose weight, they will need to keep each meal below 325 calories. It is a hard task to find this many meals that still fall below the 2000 calorie threshold for a day.
When it comes to proper weight shading, it is advisable to take in less calories than what your body needs for fuel, until you see results. We can use the example of the person who needed 2000 calories for fuel to demonstrate this point. If they mostly take water for the day, and go home to eat one meal, they shall easily accomplish their mission. What they need to do is to keep their meal’s calorie count to around the 1000 mark. In one week, they shall have managed a 7000 calorie deficit easy. This means they shall have lost 2lbs of fat, and that is all without even exercising.
This approach does not seem so hard. Those who lead active lives, where they are involved in some form of physical activity either at work or at home shall see faster results from this process. Those who continue to exercise the same discipline of one meal a day and even more activities, such as more intense exercises, they shall see faster results. To keep your changes and achievements consistent, you should aim to use this method sparingly. On the days you break from this one meal approach, make sure you eat healthy and nutritious meals, but do not cross the caloric needs line. Add onto it a good exercise plan, and you will attain your desired goal. You will then have a healthy, balanced and sustainable lifestyle.
