Did you know that setting a caloric deficit will help you achieve your goals?

To start, you should first identify how many pounds you are hoping to lose each week. Keep in mind that one pound is approximately 3500 calories – thus if you want to lose one pound per week, you’ll need to have a caloric deficit of 500 calories per day (3500 calories divided by 7 days per week). You can achieve this either by decreasing your calorie intake by this amount (it helps to use a nutrition log to track your calories), by increasing your calories burned by this amount (see you in the studio for training!), or ideally by doing a combination of both.

Remember too that the body burns a significant amount of calories from the activities of daily living. Talk to your trainer for help setting an appropriate caloric deficit that considers your workouts and lifestyle.
