The Super Secret Weight-Loss Plan!

The super secret way to loose all the weight you want is....not a secret at all! The only way to loose weight, no matter what "diet" or exercise plan you subscribe to, is really very simple; burn more calories than you consume. That's it. No special formula, no super secret tips...simply burn more calories on a regular basis than you consume.

You need to burn about 3500 extra calories to loose one pound of fat. On the flip side, you ate about 3500 extra calories to gain each extra pound of fat you carry.

A healthy goal is to aim for loosing 1-2 pounds a week. That works out to burning an extra 500-1000 calories a day and/or cutting out 500-1000 calories from your regular diet. It's really that simple.

Here is a great list of 20 activities and how many calories they burn. Here is a list of a whole ton more!

Here is an awesome article from the CDC about how to make simple substitutions to cut calories in your every day diet.
