As with everything in life, moderation is key. They very simple formula to weight loss is burning more calories than you take in.

Average person burns between 1600 – 2000 calories per day by just being alive. To loose weight, you have to take in less that 1600  – 2000 calories. If you live an active life or work at a job that requires lots of activities/manual labour, that number goes up.

Remember, starvation is not good for the body. Avoid unhealthy snacks and drinks [drink water if you’re thirsty], eat fruits as snacks.

Combine this with an active lifestyle and you are well on your way with your weight loss journey.
