It’s simple. Eat less and move more.
The truth is, you need to find what works for YOU when it comes to losing weight. We all know you need to create a calorie deficit, but it’s HOW you create that deficit that is key to losing the weight for the long run. Implement small changes in your diet and exercise routine and overtime the pounds will come off. Experiment and find healthy foods you like, find activities to burn calories that you enjoy doing and make these simple changes part of your daily routine.
In short, create healthy habits for permanent weight loss!
