I have been looking all over the web for ideas on how to lose 20 pounds in 4 months. Ok, more would be good, but let’s start off with that number. I have come across Atkins Diets, Cabbage Diets, 7-4-3-1 day diets and what the heck is this Zone thing? They all seem really unhealthy and no one can give me specifics on what to watch for to simply eat healthier.
I’m a busy woman with 2 jobs, school, and attempting to have some sort of social life. It’s hard for me to find time to sleep, much less cook, and your website helped me figure out what I needed to put in my system per day to get to where I need to be. Thanks for being so succinct! After searching around, I think I’m going with your suggestions. If it works as well as I think it will, I’ll let you know!
Thanks for your comments. Yes, there are a lot of really crazy get thin quick schemes out there. Why should a weight loss plan be so radically different than weight maintenance? Otherwise, how have you learned to eat differently for the new thinner you?
Bottom line is the amount of food and exercise you get determines your weight. Eating a bit less food and exercising more should accomplish your goal which is reasonable. The Healthy Body Calculator® report should provide you with a Calorie Goal to lose weight if you include a weight loss goal of 1 to 2 pounds per week. On the calculator results page, click the button for “do you need a healthy eating plan” and your data will be transferred to HELP.
HELP Healthy Eating For Life Plan® which will create a personalized healthy eating plan. You can add your preferences for the type of milk, meat, beans, and snacks. Your custom eating plan is linked to a small food database from which you can create menus.
