How do I lose weight?
As we know the key to losing weight is maintaining a caloric deficit. Meaning burning more calories than you are consuming.
How can I eat more when cutting?
Look for higher volume foods such as fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are fairly low in calories so you can consume a greater portion relatively to the same amount of weight to other foods that have a higher calorie count. For example a cup of grapes has 62 calories vs 1 cup of peanuts that has 857 calories. Now this is not the perfect example because 1 cup of peanuts will be heavier and more dense than 1 cup of grapes but it’s a quick example to illustrate the difference in amount of calories between foods. Furthermore, it also good to focus on lean proteins which will help you feel satieted and are usually lower in calories.
A good breakfast hack is to eat egg whites. They are high in protein but very low in calories.
Should I exercise more when trying to lose weight?
Exercise will help you to burn more calories. I would always recommend to exercise regardless of if you are trying to lose weight, gain muscle etc. Exercise is a steady part of a healthy lifestyle. Long story short, yes exercise will help if you are trying to lose weight.
People often think of having to putting in super intense workouts where you are absolutely dripping with sweat at the end. But that is not the case. Even simply increasing the amount of steps you are doing each day will help you to burn more calories which can lead to weght loss.
The important factor is to rememeber just because you exercising it does not mean you can eat whatever you want. You still need to maintain a caloric deficit to lose weight.
