When does the body begin to lose weight during dieting?

Weight loss is related to the number of calories consumed versus calories burned

Some diets are followed by rapid weight loss, but it negatively affects the health of the individual; It is based on losing water from the body instead of losing fat, which leads to weight gain again.

Of course, the rate of weight loss is not uniform, many factors determine the speed of weight loss according to each person's metabolic rate, not to mention age, gender, lifestyle, and also psychological state. 

Weight loss is closely related to the number of calories consumed, as opposed to calories burned. 

Therefore, nutrition experts advise burning 500 calories a day, staying away from eating foods rich in calories, and exercising. 

But the most important thing is to measure your body mass index to know how many calories you should consume, daily; To ensure proper weight loss and fat loss.

For example, to lose about 10 kilograms of weight, on the 500-calorie plan, you will take from 5 weeks to 10 of them. 

It's not just about the number of calories eaten, but also about the type. For example, if you limit your consumption to 350 calories per day, but eat foods rich in fat, daily, weight loss, in this case, will be much slower than if you eat protein or fiber.

So, many fall prey to the misconception of calories, no matter where they come from. Perhaps this concept is what spoils the process of losing weight.

BMI measurement to find out how many calories you should consume, per day

A person loses extra kilograms in weight, when he eats fewer calories than he needs, or when exercising regularly. However, over time, losing weight becomes very "difficult", despite continuing to follow the steps of the diet. 

The reason may be due to the low level of metabolism resulting from the loss of muscle mass while following the diet, which requires one to modify his diet or try to increase movement by lifting weights to maintain the rest of the muscle mass, and compensate for the loss.

Therefore, some believe that following a low-calorie diet replaces exercise. However, eating fewer calories than the body needs will not help in losing weight, but rather it will lead to a loss of muscle mass and a feeling of fatigue.

Eat foods rich in fiber and drink plenty of water for successful weight loss
