My BMI is currently ca. 29 – above the recommended interval 20-25. So to get to below 25 I will need to lose roughly 15 kg – from 100 kg to 85 kg.
I don’t believe in diets – all (?) studies shows that they tend to add 2+ kg a year later. Secondly, starving yourself and then when you’re done dieting you start eating “normally” again – you are stressing your body unnecessarily.
How will I do it then?
Exercise is the best thing to do – even if you don’t lose any weight you will be doing yourself a lot of good. I’m already exercising, but I’ll need to step it up from 1-2 times a week and <20 minutes to the recommended daily 30+ minutes exercise daily.
Secondly, I must start eating like one who weighs 85 kg. This have a “built-in-feature” because it will give you an energy-deficit for one weighing 100 kg.
Thirdly, I will give myself a “bonus” – for each day I exercise I can “indulge” myself for a little extra treat.
To make it easy for myself I will not change what I am eating – just eating less and cut back on the energy-rich products (candy, sugar and fat). For this I will need to calculate the amount of energy that is in each “serving” of what I eat. That will be the real hurdle.
But first I will need to calculate the amount of energy I am allowed to eat.
