Track calories for weight loss! This can be key to achieving your weight loss and fat loss goals.
A great tool to use when tracking your calories for weight loss is the MyFitnessPal app
Work out how many calories you need to consume each day for weight loss (calorie deficit) then input all your food and drink into the app to keep you on track.
Protein is the second most important aspect to track for weight loss. The body requires more energy to digest protein, therefore we burn more calories when consuming high protein foods. Protein can also be tracked in the MyFitnessPal app along with many other macro and micronutrients.
To work out how many calories you need to lose weight, use the calorie calculator.
To work out how much protein you should be consuming per day, use the sum below.
Women: Bodyweight in kilograms X 1.2 – 2
Men: Bodyweight in kilograms X 1.5 – 2.2
In summary, the two main factors to consider tracking when it comes to weight loss are calories and protein.
If we eat in a caloric deficit (burning more calories than we’re consuming) we will lose weight.
The second most important aspect of your diet to track is protein. This helps to burn calories at a higher rate and also in turn helps to build and repair muscle tissue.
I hope this helps you on your calorie tracking and weight loss goals.
