Weight Loss Calculator
Using a weight loss calculator does not give you the magic numbers you need to plan weight loss. Depending on which numbers the weight loss calculator gives you there are a few more details that you will need. Just entering your height, weight and age isn’t sufficient to setup a weight loss plan. Having actual numbers from your body physiology and monitoring them regularly is very important.
While it is a starting point and might give you an idea of BMI, BMR and Body Fat %, you will also need how many calories you eat and burn throughout the day. This is why it is important to monitor daily or in real time if possible.
Once you have a starting point and you begin to make a weight loss plan the numbers from a weight loss calculator quickly become obsolete. So for example, if the calculator asks for height, weight and age and that gives you some rough calculation the only time the calculator will be useful again is if those values change in which weight might be the only number that changes.
If you are like me and take 2 decades to figure out weight loss then maybe weight and age changed, but then I may also be a little shorter too now. At any rate, the height, weight and age are not numbers that are reliable for weight loss. Think of weight loss as a fluid projection that changes regularly. Each day your body will have a slightly different weight and most importantly a different amount of activity
Calculating Calories For Weight Loss
Once you know your BMR you will need an accurate reading of your daily caloric burn. Not only know it, but plan to have a certain amount. The BMR plus your activity will determine how many calories you need. Then you want to calculate about 20% deficit in caloric intake. So if you do not have a consistent activity level you may want to alter your calories per day.
From here you want to figure out by working through a diet plan and activity that is consistent so you end up with the daily caloric deficit. Not calculating calories using a food scale will cost you a lot of time. It is very difficult if not impossible to measure food just by looking at it. If you don’t believe that, try guessing how many calories in some fast food items and then searching their nutrition guide to see if you were close. A caloric deficit on a daily basis needs to be consistent so if you miss by a few hundred calories or go over and under like a yo yo, then you will just delay results.
So as you can imagine things can get a little complicated if you do not have a very consistent eating and activity regimen. This is where the trial and error cost me so much time. The challenge is that if you do not setup this part correctly from the beginning and you are off track it could take weeks before you realize you are not making progress. After a while your motivation drops and you give up.
How To Stay Motivated For Weight Loss
Weight loss doesn’t happen over night or with a one week, 3 day or 7 day diet. Weight loss takes weeks if not months depending on how far you have to go. When you know the body weight numbers and you can monitor it daily or in real time, then you have a fighting chance at seeing progress. Humans give up very quickly without results. I wrote my book to help you get through these difficult parts that made all the difference for me.
Using my strategy was like the light going on and made everything click. Within months I reached a physique I dreamed of since I was in my 20s.

People Also Ask
How long will it take me to lose weight?
Current guidelines say 0.5 to 2 lb a week. This is based on a daily calorie deficit of 500 calories. As one pound of fat contains 3,500 calories, an individual should technically lose 1 lb over seven days.
How much weight will I lose if I eat 500 calories a day?
For most overweight people, cutting about 500 calories a day is a good place to start. If you can eat 500 fewer calories every day, you should lose about a pound (450 g) a week. Always talk with your health care provider to determine a healthy weight for you before starting a weight-loss diet.
How many pounds do you lose if you eat 1000 calories a day?
So, in general, if you cut about 500 to 1,000 calories a day from your typical diet, you’d lose about 1 to 2 pounds a week. It sounds simple. However, it’s more complex because when you lose weight, you usually lose a combination of fat, lean tissue and water.
Where do you lose fat first?
You will first lose hard fat that surrounds your organs like liver, kidneys and then you will start to lose soft fat like waistline and thigh fat. The fat loss from around the organs makes you leaner and stronger.
