There are three types of people:

  • Who wants to lose weight

  • Who just want to be maintained

Let’s discuss it all one by one.

a. To lose weight

Suppose your maintenance calories are 2000. Now for weight loss you just have to start eating less than 2000 calories for mild weight loss, If you want extreme weight loss then start eating half of your maintenance calories i.e. 1000 calories and you will see results not in months but in weeks

Note: Don’t start extreme weight loss before going for mild weight loss for at least a month.

b. To gain weight

Similarly, in weight gain, you just have to eat more calories than your maintenance ones. Like if your maintenance calories are 2000 then start eating 2500 calories at the start then slowly increase your diet.

c. To maintain weight

Maintenance is very easy actually if you want just to maintain your physique then eat equal to your maintenance calories don’t eat more than your maintenance calories and vice versa.
