Skip 100 Calories Today, Lose 10 Lbs This Year

You can drop ten pounds this year without lifting a weight, without starting a diet, and without lacing up your running shoes. In fact, it’s what you DON’T do that will get rid of those ten lbs. Simply DON’T eat those extra 100 calories a day.

100 calories are easy to find – we’ll go over that later. Here’s is why it works:

By leaving out 100 calories per day, you are eating 36,500 less calories a year.

(100 calories a day x 365 days in a year = 36,500 calories). It takes a decrease of 3,500 calories to lose one pound of fat. A decrease of 35,000 adds up to 10 pounds of fat…10 pounds of excess fat off of your body!

According to the American Heart Association, as of 2005, there were 140 million overweight or obese people in the United States. 72 million of them were men, 68 million women. Overweight is defined as a BMI of 25+. Obesity is a BMI of 30+. Overweight and Obesity — Statistics.

Just think of how well you can do if you add in exercise, too. If you burn 100 calories a day through exercise and skip another 100 from food, it will equal 200 calories a day. That, in turn, will equal twenty pounds of fat gone from your body this year! Burning 100 calories with exercise is easy: (at a casual pace, for a150lbs. person) Ride a bike for 10 minutes, jog for 12 minutes, play tennis for 15 minutes, walk for 30 minutes. Start today!
