How Much Exercise is Enough?
To Lose Fat Weight
  • Subtract 2 calories per pound of body weight from
    your daily caloric intake.
  • The reduced calories should come mostly from fat
    calories, and NOT protein.
  • This caloric reduction should be applied to all
    of your 5 meals NEVER skip meals.
  • Increase your caloric intake two days per week by
    2 calories per pound of body weight, to ensure
    that you put on lean muscle, and that upward BMR
    adjustments are being made.

To Lose Fat Weight
  • For example, assuming that you weight 150 pounds,
    and youre eating five meals per day, you should
    reduce each meal by 60 calories ( total of 300
    calories reduction over a full day).
  • By reducing your daily caloric intake by 300
    calories, you can expect to lose about 2 ½ pounds
    of fat per month, assuming youre weight training
    for muscle mass preservation or increase.

To Stay the same weight while becoming more
  • Your intake of calories remain equal to your
    daily energy expenditure.
  • Carefully control your calories on a
    meal-per-meal basis.
  • Over the course of 6 months or so, this sort of
    fastidiousness will pay off with big dividends in
    more muscle tissue and less fat-youll begin to
    look and feel great.

To gain muscular weight
  • Add 2 calories per pound of body weight to your
    daily caloric intake.
  • The added calories should be mostly protein and
    some complex carbohydrates (no added fat
  • Spread these added calories equally among 5 meals
    per day.

To gain muscular weight
  • For example, a 150 pound person should add 300
    calories per day to their diet over 5 meals,
    that equals about a 60 calorie increase per meal.
  • The additional 300 calories will, with the
    intense weight training, result in a gain of
    approximately 1-2 pounds of added muscle per
  • Reduce your caloric intake 2 days per week by 2
    calories per pound of body weight, to ensure that
    excess fat is being removed.
