How To Lose 1.5 Pounds Per Week

Weight loss inspiration. We are here to help you every step of the way on your weight loss journey!

Hey Guys,

To all of you who are followers of my blog for at least a month, know that  I have struggled with weight for a long time. To some of us due to health condition is not easy like everyone says, it takes commitment, effort and a lot of knowledge to get through all that.

I gathered here some tips on help you get started with those extra pounds you want to get rid of…

Step 1

The Shoulder Stretch Missing From Your Life

Perform 60 minutes of cardiovascular exercise on most days of the week to burn calories. In an hour, a person who weighs 150 pounds can burn 410 calories by riding a bike at a speed of 12 mph, 440 calories by walking at a speed of 4.5 mph and 400 calories playing tennis.

Step 2

Don't dream of it. Train for it. Get fit with Nike+ Training Club workouts.

Incorporate two or three 30-minute strength-training sessions into your schedule on nonconsecutive days. Strength-training stimulates muscle tissue, which takes up less space and burns more calories than fat. According to Harvard Health Publications, it can boost your metabolism by 15 percent. Perform exercises that target your major muscle groups. Start with one set of 10 repetitions and work your way up to two or three sets. Include exercises, such as bent-over rows, push-ups, bench presses, squats, crunches and lunges.

Step 3

9. Eat Smaller Meals, More Often    To keep your metabolism rocking, and to keep you feeling full rather than hungry all the time, try eating five small meals each day, rather…

Eat smaller portions so that you consume fewer calories. The American Council on Exercise suggests decreasing your portions by 10 to 15 percent. It also advises against skipping breakfast and recommends eating small meals throughout the day to avoid hunger.

Step 4

Fresh fruit kabobs - simple, fast, fresh, colorful, healthy

Swap out high-calorie, weight-loss-sabotaging foods for healthier, low-calorie alternatives. For example, instead of eating cookies, chips, candy and fast foods that are loaded with transfats and saturated fats, choose vegetables, fruits or mixed salads. Drink water instead of sodas or alcoholic beverages.

Step 5

Slim Down With 30 Days of Healthy Snacks

Focus on eating a nutritious diet that consists of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, reduced-fat dairy products, lean meats, fish and poultry.

Step 6

Get about seven to eight hours of sleep each night to avoid weight gain. According to Harvard School of Public Health, lack of sleep influences appetite-stimulating hormones in your body, making it likely that you’ll end up with hard-to-combat cravings for unhealthy foods that are high in fat and carbs.

Just an important tip… start off your workout routine slowly as you get  condition you’ll be able to continue to improve that and get more intense sessions and for longer time. This is not only for weight-loss but for health.

I hope you find it useful. ❤

  1. Cutting out carbs helped me a lot! I still have them every now and then that way I don’t break down and break my diet completely. But it has helped me! Thanks for sharing you tips and good luck I understand the struggle too 🙂


  2. I struggle with weight as well. Just cutting out certain food, switching white bread to whole wheat, cutting down portions, and controlling my “snack time” helped me loose at least 3 lbs. If I can do it so can you!


    1. Well, in my case it was a hormone that caused the weight change and due to the fact that wasn’t my eating habits that caused the issue… it’s a lot harder. I am vegetarian, only eat whole wheat, brown rice, tons of fruits and vegetables and still doing all that it’s been a struggle so I really do a lot of research and that is why I like to share it when I find something interesting. Thanks a lot for your advises.

      1. Ah I see. Well at least you’re half way there with eating well! I tried being a vegetarian once…That didn’t work out well… 🙂 Good luck!
