Expert Tips

  • To lose 1 pound a week, you need to create a 500-calorie daily deficit. Well-balanced weight-loss plans recommend eating 250 fewer calories each day and burning an additional 250 calories through exercise. Remember, a healthy weight-loss plan includes a healthy diet plus exercise, rather than focusing too much on one or the other.
  • It's all in the attitude. Telling yourself that you have to exercise in order to lose weight takes the fun out of your workout. Instead, focus on positive outcomes: the extra energy you'll get from working out and the well-toned body you'll have.
