Easy Quick Recipes Weight Loss

Maximum people make the mistake of crash dieting in order to lose weight. They cut too many calories from their diet and finally give up out of frustration. They should only cut 500 to 700 calories from their daily intake so as to lose weight.

Cut the calorie intake by 500 to lose 1 pound each week or cut it by 700 calories to lose 1-½ pounds each week. There are 3500 calories in every 1 pound of fat. To lose that 1 pound, you need a calorie deficit of almost 3500 calories. This calorie deficit should happen over the course of one week exactly.

A diet with too few calories is hard to maintain and will slow down the metabolism. Eat way too many calories and you will not lose weight at all. The best dieting method is to eat approximately 5 to 6 small meals per day and include a daily aerobic exercise program almost 5 days per week. This will level up the metabolism and help lose that extra weight quicker. A healthy diet is one that is mainly high in nutrients and also low in fat, sugar, salt and cholesterol.

Fruits and Vegetables have very little calories and thus eating more fruits and vegetables instead of meats will quickly reduce the weight. Moreover, some fruits and vegetables such as lettuce, zucchini are best if eaten raw. Other Vegetables also require less cooking time to preserve their original taste and nutrients.

Preparing a quick simple meal of vegetables can be equally nutritious and delicious as well. Here is a good example of a simple, yet delicious meal that only takes 10 minutes or preparation time and 15 minutes of cooking time.
