Is there a safe way to lose a lot of weight?

Written by Tena Moore

Losing weight can be a very safe, and a very healthy endeavor; it all depends upon your method. If you need to lose weight for your health, there are healthy and safe ways to take the weight off successfully. The safest and most effective ways to lose weight are extremely simple and there is nothing ‘unsafe’ about them: Eat Less, Move More.

Eat Less. Find out how many calories you normally eat a day, and then cut them. Never go under 1,200 calories per day; it is not safe. You need a certain amount of calories per day to have energy, think clearly, and keep your body agile and your mind sharp. Don’t starve yourself, but do cut your calories. Studies have shown that cutting calories can not only help you lose weight, but can also help you to live longer. Talk with your doctor or a nutritionist to find out what a safe calorie range is for you.

Move More. Incorporate movement into your daily schedule. Take the stairs. Walk around the block. Do some sit ups. Take a yoga class three times a week. Exercising is safe and healthy and not only will it help you lose weight, but it will also keep your body and mind healthier for the long-term.
