How To Start When You Have 50+ Pounds To Lose


Losing weight is never an easy task, especially if you have quite a lot of pounds to shed. However, nothing is impossible and even 50 pounds can be shed in about 4 months if you start a healthy diet regimen and strenuous exercise. Following these rules will help you lose about 12 pounds a month, or some 3 pound a week on average. Even though this exceeds the recommended weight loss guidelines of 1-2 pounds a week you shouldn’t be worried because it’s not unhealthy or impossible. You just need to be dedicated, persistent and follow the steps we’ve prepared for you, they include a healthy diet and exercise – an overall healthy lifestyle which should be adopted on the long-term if you want to reach your goal and stay there.


Eating right

Step 1

The first thing you need to do is start eating healthy. Introduce whole grains, don’t count the calories and eat high-quality food. Steer clear of processed food, carbs and sweets, opt for natural sugars (fruit), veggies, lean protein an whole grains instead.

Step 2

Never overeat, even if it’s the healthiest dish in the world. Always eat in moderation because overeating won’t help you reach the 3 pounds a week goal. Your portions should always include half a plate full of vegetables that have few calories but are nutritionally rich. You shouldn’t eat more than half a cup of whole grains and a 3-ounce serving of lean protein such as chicken breast, white fish or flank steak. Strictly following this eating plan is the only way you can lose 50 pounds in 4 months, deviating from it will undermine your success.

Step 3

Your meals should include healthy fats as well. They’ll keep you full and won’t get in the way of your weight loss regimen. Add a teaspoon of olive oil, coconut oil, a tablespoon of chia or flax seeds, a quarter of an avocado, etc. in your smoothie or salads. Eat nuts between meals to satisfy your cravings

Step 4

Carbonated drinks, alcohol, “100% natural” juices and sugary coffee drinks are a big NO.  They are pumped with sugar and empty calories which will only make you crave for more.
