Do I have to eat less in order to lose weight?
Not necessarily. You can actually lose weight by eating more. Our body accumulates fat when we eat more calories than we burn, causing weight gain.
However, if you eat the same amount of food only with fewer calories, you can start shedding pounds in no time. For example, 1 cup of aged basmati rice (long grain) contains 192 calories; on the other hand, 1 cup of cauliflower rice has only 25 calories. Therefore, if you change your diet, you would be eating the same amount of food, only with fewer calories. Diet-delivery programs can help you in planning your diet.
How many calories should I take to lose weight?
It is recommended for people trying to lose weight to take less than 1600 calories. You can start by eating low-calorie food. By avoiding greasy and cheesy food, you can save yourself from consuming many calories at once.
Almost everything has a substitute, like you can use avocado paste in place of mayo in your sandwich. Sugar in tea or coffee can be replaced with maple syrup etc. which can reduce the amount of calories you intake each day.
I am fat and want to burn it fast to get slim. What do I do?
Your best bet is to stay patient a little and start the diet delivery program where you’ll be eating the same amount of food daily with less calories. Additionally, to burn fat faster, you can workout a little, walk or use the stairs. You don’t have to do that daily, 4-5 times in a week would be sufficient.
Do I have to follow a diet regimen?
Not always but, do not stray off from the path. Losing weight is a challenge in itself and you will find your mind wandering off the needed diet, towards the high calorie infused food. It is okay to do that once in a while but, not always.
I am on a recommended less than 1600-calorie diet and I haven’t lost a single pound yet.
You should not be worrying at all. If you are on below 1600 calorie diet and still not losing weight, you might want to come down a little more, say, 100-200 more and see if this works. If you are providing your body the needed amount, you will never lose weight. Also, do check if you take any unwanted calories like sugary drinks, biscuits between your meal gaps.
How do diet delivery programs work?
Creating a diet delivery program is just like customizing a pizza before ordering. You get to choose what you want and the nutritionists will create a nutritional balance so that you do not have to compromise on taste while you lose weight. The program works for 5-7 days a week.
What if I want to get some booze amid my diet delivery program?
The diet delivery program allows exception sometimes. The sole purpose of this program is to help you lose weight, nowhere is it said that you have to compromise on taste or food habits.
If you take a pint of beer or wine or any other form of alcohol, make sure you manage your calorie intake or you customize your diet meal according to that. Also, we would recommend, if you’re going to consume alcohol in a party or gathering, you do it in moderation.
I get cravings near midnight, should I eat during that time?
Nobody gets a good night sleep on an empty stomach, if you feel like eating, go for it.
Keeping track of all your day’s calories is a good idea to see if you can afford to flush in some more. We recommend you to engage in NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) program that way you’ll be burning few extra calories without even noticing or getting tired. This will help you to satisfy your cravings at night without gaining weight.
How much weight can I expect to lose with diet delivery programs?
People have claimed to lose up to a couple of pounds during a week, however, the amount of weight loss solely depends on you. You might lose more with the same diet or less. It will depend on how much calories you are taking in, if you are taking the same number of calories (healthy calories) as you used to take earlier, you will lose weight a little slowly.
However, if you cut down on your calorie intake and exercise too, you will reduce significantly.
How long do I need to stay on the program?
You need to stay on this program as long as you don’t achieve your target weight. Losing weight isn’t swish and flick of a magical wand, it has its process. Also, subscribing for diet delivery doesn’t mean you’ll start losing weight overnight.
The program starts working in a couple of weeks, which means you’ll start seeing results by then.
Are diet delivery programs safe for diabetics?
Yes, they are completely safe. There are specific diet delivery programs for diabetic people and meals are prepared keeping their state in mind. The meal preparation avoids mainstream sugar-containing food like white bread or dessert.
By allowing a balanced diet, of lean proteins, carbs and low fat, it is made sure that your blood sugar level is stable. Still, it is recommended to consult with a dietitian before enrolling for a diet program.
