To start reducing calories for successful weight loss, you need a good system with the right tools that will support your efforts along the way rather than creating obstacles and having you expend your willpower at every turn.
Start logging your daily calories with a calorie counter to learn about your eating habits and to identify pitfalls. This knowledge is invaluable in its ability to affect your lifestyle choices. The best calorie counter app, like our Lifesum weight tracker, will also motivate you with daily check-ins, progress displays, recipe ideas, and lifestyle advice.
Use the information you gathered to decide how many calories you can cut realistically and which of the following ideas for reducing calories will be easy to incorporate in your lifestyle.
The right tools will encourage your cooking efforts by saving you time and doing the work of reducing calories for you.
Though these ideas might seem too simple to cause any significant weight loss, remember that successful and long-term weight loss comes from consistency rather than any drastic measures. Even reduction in daily caloric intake by 100 calories could result in 10 pounds of weight loss in a year.
Be a healthier you!
I can’t believe all the options in the food diary there are. Like, even generic food options from my local grocery store. I like the food plans it has an option, it has synced to my Fitbit, and has been user friendly. I’m excited to see how this plays out. I’m always a skeptic, but off to a great start!
Much easier to use, love the interface and how it has recipes and keeps me on plan. I upgraded to the full version, no regrets! I’ve tried many apps and in my opinion this one is the simplest to use and guides my choices!
I love this app! It has so many features and great advice. With the different meal plans and exact calorie counts, this app was perfect for me.
