Losing weight is like marketing plans. You need to write it down and measure it for it to be effective.
The day after Christmas, Marketing $ociologist started a series on weight loss. This is the second in that series.
Today let’s look at the keys. The Dec. 26 edition gave you a diet and aerobic schedule.
Today we look at some components necessary for weight loss – that is measuring and writing it down.
A simple spreadsheet program – or even a cheap notebook – is all you need, plus inexpensive scales for measuring your food.
If you can’t look at the side of a package to determine fat content and calories, there’s plenty online resources. Here’s what you want to measure:
Fat content – no more than 28 grams per day
Calories – anywhere from 1200 to 2000, depending upon your composition
Ounces – six ounces of chicken or turkey breast, or fish
Weight – how much you are lifting, how many repetitions, etc.
Aerobics – how many a minutes – again go online and translate to calories burned
Finally, measure your weight and inches every three days AT LEAST – write it down! What to do if you’re not losing weight? Leave a comment and an electronic way to be contacted!
