For Faster Weight Loss - Know Your BMR

Losing weight can be tough. Unfortunatley, there's no quick-fix. No magic pill. And no one can do it for us.

It all boils down to one simple equation: Calories in vs. Calories out.

Bottom line - It's a numbers game. The first step is to find out your Basal Metabolic Rate, or BMR. BMR represents the energy required to run your body - beat your heart, blink your eyes, grow your hair, and just be alive.

Here is a simple formula to determine your BMR; multiply your weight by the number 15.

For example if you weigh 150 pounds, multipy that by 15 and you'll get 2250. Your BMR is 2250, which means your body requires 2250 calories per day, just to function. 

If you create a deficit of 500 calories per day, you'll lose 1 pound per week. Even better, exercise daily to burn 300 calories and 200 fewer calories per day, and you'll see even faster results!
