There are many factors that can contribute to your weight. A few of the obvious ones are your height, body fat percentage, and muscle mass. Weight can also fluctuate a bit during the day due to water retention. If you are retaining a lot of water, the scale may show that you are a few pounds heavier than normal. For this reason, you should weigh yourself in the morning to get the most accurate measurement. To get even more accurate, weigh yourself a few mornings in a row and take the average.
Many people ask the question — how much should I weigh? There are BMI calculators all over the internet, but you should use discretion when using them. They only account for your height and weight, and do not factor in muscle mass. If you have above average muscle mass, these calculators might actually indicate that you are overweight even though you are in great shape and have a lot of muscle.
Use this chart to get an estimate of how much you should weigh based on your height and weight:
If you are discouraged with your weight, don’t get yourself down. Use it as an opportunity to motivate yourself to lose weight. Finding a sensible and healthy diet is the first step to losing weight. Maintaining a good diet and exercise program is the key to a healthy weight. It is very important to avoid crash diets at all costs. These will cause weight loss initially, but the results are short term and the weight is always gained back. Additionally, many crash diets have too much of a calorie deficit which are unhealthy and cause you to be sluggish and low on energy.
The key to a healthy weight loss plan is to be on a weekly calorie deficit which will give your body enough energy to function and burn fat at the same time. The best way to get started is to calculate the amount of calories your body uses for energy each day (BMR) and consume slightly under that amount. I recommend eating about 10% less calories than your BMR.
You will also need to make sure that you are getting the correct ratios of protein/carbs/ and fat. If you are exercising that day, you can eat more carbs. If you do not exercise, try to keep the carbs low. Giving your body enough protein is also a must. Protein is the building blocks your body needs to do just about everything. It is also a key factor for body composition and maintaining and/or building muscle mass (depending on your training).
There are a ton of fat burners on available in the weight loss and fitness supplement industry today. Many of them can work, but they are by no means magic weight loss pills. These fat burners can only really work if you supplement them with proper dieting and exercise. You can’t just take the fat burner everyday and follow it up with 3,000-4,000 calories. This would only lead to weight gain, not weight loss.
Many fat burners work because they suppress your appetite and cause you to eat less each day. By eating at a calorie deficit, you are burning more calories than you are taking in. This will force your body to metabolize fat for energy. When eating at a calorie surplus, your body never has the chance to use fat for energy. Instead, it will store the extra calories as fat.
Do I need a Fat Burner?
Just like any supplement, you don’t necessarily need it to accomplish your goals. They are only meant to supplement your current diet and weight loss plan. Many people use them for convenience purposes. However, you can most certainly still get great results without the use of supplements. After all, many people simply do not have the budget to buy supplements. If this is the case for you, don’t worry! You can still accomplish your goals without them.
So before you buy Phen375 or any other fat burner, you need to decide whether or not you really need it to accomplish your goals. It is also important to do your research and maybe ask others who have tried the particular supplement you’re looking at.
If you do decide to take a supplement, you still need to put in the effort! There are far too many people who think that the supplement will do all the work. So if you have yet to put in the hard work, I would suggest that you try that before trying to rely on a weight loss pill.
