10/02/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 3. October 2014 08:27

The International Food Information Council Foundation declares that 47% of Americans overestimate now many calories they should eat per day.  One formula for figuring this out how much to eat per day and to loose 1 lb. per week, is to take your weight times 11.

Most people try to loose weight by changing how much they eat or what types of foods.  Over 60% try by exercising, while 44% try to loose weight by changing how often they eat, and 19% try to loose weight by counting calories.

My best advice how to achieve weight loss goals?  Clean eating and Read my blog!  Try ideas given on these blogs and see what gives you results while remaining healthy for your long term health.  I have found that eating lean protein three times a day, drinking water and green tea, whole fruits and grains,low-fat dairy, and LOTS of vegetables keeps my body-goals on track and my energy high! 

You can not reach your goals for a healthy body by taking fetal hormones (I'm not kidding, I hear this one more and more as a solution for weight loss), starving yourself or taking diet pills.  It has to be a combination of strength training, cardio, and clean eating.  This is the only solution for long-term success for weight management. 

Write comments back if you need further information about ideas or you want to share some of your success ideas.  Also, "like" my blogs on Facebook and let's work together and build a community of healthy, energized friends.
