Losing weight can be achieved by creating a calorie deficit, which means burning more calories than you consume. To lose weight in 6 months, it is recommended to aim for a weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week. This can be done by creating a calorie deficit of 500-1000 calories per day through a combination of diet and exercise.
To create a calorie deficit through diet, it is important to track your daily calorie intake and make sure that it is lower than the number of calories you burn each day. This can be done by reducing portion sizes, cutting out high-calorie foods and drinks, and increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables, and lean protein.
To create a calorie deficit through exercise, it is important to engage in regular physical activity. This can include cardio exercises like running, cycling, or swimming, as well as strength training exercises like weightlifting, bodyweight exercises, or resistance band exercises. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity per week, plus two days of strength training.
It’s also important to remember that weight loss is not only about the number on the scale, it’s also about overall health and well-being, so it’s important to pay attention to how you feel, how your clothes fit, and how your energy level is, not only to weight changes.
