GlucoMenu® Tip of the Day:
Looking to lose some weight? One pound equals 3500 calories.
Reduce calories by 500 per day to lose one pound per week (3500 calories/7 days in a week = 500 calories per day).
Reach a 500 calorie reduction daily by decreasing calories consumed by 250 and increasing activity by 250 calories
(generally 30 minutes of moderate exercise for many). This will equate to 1 pound of weight loss each week.
Not quick enough? Remember it takes time to lose weight. Weight is not gained overnight and weight is not lost overnight.
Stay focused on slow and steady weight loss establishing healthy habits that will last over time.
