Shedding Those Last Few Pounds

collaborative guest post

Weight loss is a long and difficult journey. Shedding even a few pounds takes weeks of effort, and making major changes requires months if not years of commitment. Along the way, it is easy to become “stuck” at certain weights. The lower your weight gets, the harder it becomes to keep your weight decreasing at a consistent rate. However, there are a few things you can do to help yourself lose those last few pounds.

Calories

As we all know, weight loss is fundamentally about calories. Every person has three calorie amounts that they need to be aware of. The first is their weight maintenance level. This is the number of calories required to keep your weight exactly where it is. It depends on your current weight, height, age, and sex. There are various calorie calculators available online which can help you figure out what it is. The important thing you must remember is that this number goes down as you lose weight. The lighter you are, the fewer calories are needed to maintain your current weight.
