Lose a Stone in 2 Months

If you want to lose a stone in 2 months, then you will have to maintain a consistent daily calorie deficit.

This means that day after day you will need to consume less calories than your body requires, so that your body eats in to your fat reserves to make up the difference.

Little by little, each and every day, your fat levels will reduce. All you have to do is maintain a calorie deficit until you reach your ideal weight.

But how do you make sure that you are in deficit?

Using the 3 methods of calorie deficit to help you lose a stone in 2 months

The most obvious way to deficit is to reduce your calorie intake to lose weight. You will literally consume less food.

It is actually quite easy. Cut out, or severely reduce, the junk food. Reduce your starchy foods, like potatoes, pizzas, breads, pastas, etc. And cut out the fizzy drinks entirely! Drinking calories like these will make achieving a calorie deficit impossible. (Zero calorie drinks are the only exception.)

Another way to deficit is to increase your NEAT, or non-exercise activity thermogenesis. What on earth is that, you ask?

It is basically a scientific geeky way of saying that if you simply get up a move around you will burn off a load of extra calories, without specifically exercising.

Think of this. How many hours each week or month do you spend on the phone? I expect for many it could mount in to the dozens. No imagine how many extra calories you could burn during these phone calls if you were standing up and moving around the room, instead of sitting on you butt?

But there are many ways to increase your NEAT. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Jump off the bus a stop earlier. Wash the car by hand, instead of taking it through the car wash. There are loads of ways.

And the final method to increase your calorie deficit, the method that will really propel your weight loss, is to include good old fashioned exercise. A good brisk hour’s walk can burn up to 400 calories, but more strenuous exercise will really clock up your deficit. And the greater your calorie deficit, the quicker the weight loss.

If you follow these simple methods to increase your deficit then you will lose a stone in 2 months easily.
