Fast Weight Loss Yo-Yo NO NO

DON'T TRY TO LOSE WEIGHT TOO QUICKLY
For safe and lasting weight loss, plan on losing between 1-2 pounds per week. Faster weight loss may be unhealthy and you run the risk of yo-yoing, experiencing rapid drops and quickly gaining. Instead of fad diets, make long-term lifestyle changes. Maintain a calorie deficit of about 500 - 1000 per day, you can eat less or workout more or do both. Remember that as you lose weight, your calorie needs also drops. However, if you are beginning an exercise program, make sure that you don't reduce the calorie intake so much that you don't have energy to work out.
