Simple Tips to Lose 10 Pounds

Posted by Leave a Comment

I have to admit that I was no math major in school but I was always fascinated by how you can prove and solve problems with numbers. Maybe that is why I gravitated towards becoming a personal trainer. You see the simple truth to successful weight loss is a numbers game. Calories in and Calories out. If you take in more calories then you burn off you will gain weight. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure that out and I guess that is why personal training was my calling.

So, instead of trying to do some fad diet and starve yourself why don’t we do something simple and set up a strategy that will help us lose 10 pounds in a year without even working out. The strategy is so simple any can do it. Are you ready?

Here is what I want you to do. I want you to cut 100 calories a day from your diet. Simply by cutting 100 calories a day you could cut 36,500 calories a year, which equates to 10 pounds. Now for those of you who want to see the calculation you multiply 100 x 365 days = 36,500 and divide by 3,500 (calories per pound of fat) and you get 10 pounds( (100 x 365)/3500 = 10)).

Okay, now that we have the math part of the equation done let’s look at how we can cut 100 calories a day from our diet. Take a look at this article from the Chicago Tribune, which gives a ton of good tips on cutting out 100 calories from your diet.

Alright, now that you have an idea of different ways you can cut 100 calories from your diet you need to start implementing them. Let me tell you first hand that I know this strategy works. Back in early 2000 I cut orange juice out of my morning breakfast routine and within the year I lost about 5 lbs just from doing that one thing, so I know it works.

Go give it a shot and report back to me on how you are doing!

In health,

Coach Dave

About the Author ()

I am a husband, father of 2 girls (I was told that I was meant to be King)! I have been in the fitness industry since graduating from the University of Florida back in 97. I had the privilege to do an internship with the world renowned Dr. Cooper and the Cooper Aerobics Center. My initial start after graduating was as a personal trainer at a small private personal training studio in Orlando. After eight months, I moved to Dallas and worked as a personal trainer and manager for the Premier Athletic Club in Dallas. Since that time I have continued to work as a fitness professional in a variety of roles. Most recent is the development of America's # 1Lifestyle program for Working Moms called "Working Mom Workouts." I enjoy working with my clients and helping people reach their fitness goals.
