For people on a beginner’s workout Panalean program, it is hard to be patient. Losing weight is one of the most talked about reasons for getting into an exercise program. If you are looking to lose weight, the easiest way to explain the process is to tell you to burn more calories than you take in. Unfortunately it’s not as simple as that. Most people aren’t really interested in losing weight but more likely interested in burning fat.
If you are an active person and you are looking to reduce your body fat to let your muscles show then you must first calculate how much body fat you will need to lose to achieve your goal. Along with determining your body fat percentage, you will also need to calculate your BMR (Basal metabolic rate). This number will tell you how many calories you personally need to burn in a day just to stay alive.
A shorthand number to consider is 1500 calories a day for the average woman and 2000 calories a day for the average man. It is more important for you to determine your needs in order to make it easier for you to reach your goal. You won’t necessarily need to count calories each day, you will however need to balance your meals, increase your metabolism and reduce your calories slightly below your current average to see successful weight loss.
