Do you have a goal of losing weight and keeping it off, And you don’t want to fall into the yoyo trap?

These twelve tips can help you lose weight healthily and sustainably.
The problem with crash diets
Losing weight quickly with the help of crash diets makes no sense.
Crash diets have serious disadvantages. For example, they affect your immune system because of the lack of nutrients, making you more susceptible to infections.

1. Count calories – yes or no?
In the long run, counting calories is not that important. However, if you don’t know your basal metabolic rate, it would be helpful to track calories for two months to understand how your body and metabolism work.
To lose weight, you need to eat less than your total metabolic rate. This is called a calorie deficit, which should be between 200 to 500 calories a day.
Just keep an eye on the weekly caloric balance. However, it’s not important to hit the exact calorie count every day.
And we don’ recommend a high-calorie deficit or less than 1200 calories a day if you want long-term success.
