DIET and NUTRITION

The book Lose It! teaches that in order to successfully lose weight, you must create a calorie deficit each day. You must burn more calories than you are consuming by reducing the calories you eat, and exercising to burn stored fat. This program allows you to create your own diet according to your personal preferences. You will learn what items are lower in calories and fat while being more filling so that you can eat more. One way to ensure that you are properly cutting calories is to keep track of every bite you take. Keep a food journal so that you can be accurate. You can also set up your goals for the number of pounds you hope to lose per week. Make sure you record and count calories for everything you eat. You may start to see a major difference in what you eat compared to what you thought your daily calorie count was. The book doesn’t necessarily tell you what to eat, but what changes need to be made. A typical day of eating on the meal plan within Lose It! may look similar to the menu below:

Breakfast

  • 1 cup cubed cantaloupe
