I’m sure you have known somebody who has got themselves into a state where they believe they literally cannot drop the pounds no matter what they try to do or what diet they try. This is something often said by serial dieters or yo-yo dieters. In the majority of cases this is simply because they’re blatantly overlooking the proven facts because that would almost be ‘too easy’, or ‘too good to be true’. It simply HAS to be more complicated, right? Actually, no.

By the end of today’s article you should feel a lot more confident and a lot more equipped in your battle against the bulge. [youtube:8oGRMaqPfdk;Watch the simple guide on [link:how to lose weight] with Fitness Instructor Russ Howe PTI.;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oGRMaqPfdk&feature=related]

The immediate task at hand is to figure out how many calories you need to eat each day. We cannot get results until we do this and you cannot achieve success without taking the time to do it. A pre-made plan from a magazine isn’t going to cut it and we’ll show you why.

All you need to do is figure out your goal weight in pounds and multiply it by twelve. That’s it, you’re done. This ball park figure is there to give you an idea how many calories per day to eat.

Getting the optimal split between your protein, carbs and fats is the most important factor in a solid eating plan. The number of calories you eat per day takes a back seat to this factor. For example, a person eating 2500 calories per day from healthy sources is going to get better results than someone eating 2500 calories from unhealthy sources, right? Naturally! So the number of calories you eat is not the ‘be all and end all’ of everything.

A proven method for doing this is to get 40% of your calorie target from protein, 40% from carbs (yes, contrary to every celebrity diet you do still need carbs – that’s why the crowd who follow those plans in gossip magazines never get any results) and 20% from fats (yes, you actually do need to eat fats). This is how to achieve the split:

Protein – Work out 40% of your daily calorie target. Now divide that figure by 4 (that’s how many calories are in one gram of protein) to find out how many grams of protein you should eat each day.

With your carb intake simply do the protein sum again, because they have the exact same values.

Fats – Work out 20% of your daily calorie target and divide the result by nine this time (that’s how many calories are in one single gram of fat). This gives you an idea how many grams of fat to consume every day.

If you can hit that daily target of macronutrients you will notice that you don’t even need to count your calories. The only reason we must set the calorie target is so we can then work out our macronutrient split, that’s all.

Now that you have a solid diet plan in place you can begin implementing our other diet tips from today’s video. We’d recommend adding one step at a time until you have all five tips working for you simultaneously, this allows you to take it step-by-step and keeps you from changing too much in one go.

Sadly, the majority of gym members never take the time to do what you have done today. They spend years trying to work out how to lose weight without actually taking the small amount of time necessary to put an end to all of their problems. The good news for you is that you’ve just taken the first step and now have the foundations of a really good eating plan established!
