It is sometimes difficult to believe that one can lose weight by having only one meal in a day. Weight loss goes hand in hand with minimal eating. The truth is that many people will find the idea of weight loss through one meal a day impossible. There is a popular misconception that to lose weight, you need to eat more meals and exercise even more. This is the worst idea when it comes to losing weight. There are many health and fitness experts who agree with this viewpoint.
There is some shred of truth to the notion of losing weight through consumption of six meals a day. The main issue with it is that people do not understand how to do this and end up messing it up, to undesirable results. What could work in such a case is to identify six meals which you can take throughout the day, that when added, will not surpass the daily calorie figure needed by your body for fuel. You can use the case of someone who needs 2000 calories from food in a day. When you opt to do the six meals a day approach to losing weight, you shall have to restrict each meal to less than 325 calories. Finding six meals that each contain less than 325 calories is a challenge most people cannot manage.
For there to be proper weight loss, it is only realistic to take in foods that contain fewer calories than what your body needs for fuel, until you get to the point that your weight starts to drop. The same example of the individual who needs 2000 calories to get their daily fuel needs can be applied here. If they mostly take water for the day, and go home to eat one meal, they shall easily accomplish their mission. They just need to ensure their caloric intake does not cross the new 1000 threshold. In one week, they shall have managed a 7000 calorie deficit easy. This means they shall have lost 2lbs of fat, and that is all without even exercising.
When you keep an open mind; you realize this is not a tough challenge to take. Those who lead active lives, where they are involved in some form of physical activity either at work or at home shall see faster results from this process. Those who continue to exercise the same discipline of one meal a day and even more activities, such as more intense exercises, they shall see faster results. To keep your changes and achievements consistent, you should aim to use this method sparingly. On the days you break from this one meal approach, make sure you eat healthy and nutritious meals, but do not cross the caloric needs line. On top of this, exercise well and you shall it your desired target. You will then have a healthy, balanced and sustainable lifestyle.
