The equation for losing weight is relatively simple: for every 3,500 calories of food intake equals to about one pound of fat. Hence, if you take in 500 calories less of food every day for one month, that would equate to losing around 4 pounds of fat each month (500 x 30days /3,500). This is not drastic, and can be done by everyone. But if it is that simple, why is it so hard for everyone to lose weight?
This is where lifestyle choices, eating habits, and smart food choices come in. You have to re-educate your palate into liking healthy foods. Meaning, preferences for vegetables, fruits, unprocessed foods, natural juices among many others, should clearly define what eating is all about.
