So, taking account of your build, bone structure and musculature, try to establish a ‘good weight’ (note, not an ‘ideal’ weight it does not exist) for someone of your build using a weight table such as this or a downloadable, printable chart like this one, and make that your target.
Having done so, stick to that target so that once you get there, you alter your weight loss diet and exercise regime to one that is designed to maintain weight rather than lose it.
Okay, with that note of caution out of the way, let’s start to consider what you can do to get rid of those extra pounds.
The answer is really very simple.
You pile on the poundage because you are taking in energy that you are not using.
There are two things that you can do to start shedding the fat pounds, two things that can be done in isolation but which work far better if done together.
One is to increase the amount of calories that you burn every day through a program of sensible exercise.
The second is to reduce the calories that you take in, so that instead of eating more calories than you need every day, you are eating fewer.
