I often come across people who follow the diet and workout with perfection throughout the week and let go on the weekends. These are the same people who end up seeing no progress. Many times even you must be wondering, “Can a single day ruin the entire week’s progress?”, the answer is yes, it can.
 ⁣
The simple rule to make progress in terms of weight loss is, eat less than what you burn over a constant period of time.

Let’s consider a person who maintains his weight at 2500calories.⁣

This will be ⇨ 2,500 calories * 7 days ⇨ 17,500 calories per week.⁣

Let’s assume the person goes on a deficit of 500 calories per day which is 3500 calories in a week.⁣

𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗹𝘆 𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀  ⇨ 𝟮𝟱𝟬𝟬*𝟳 = 𝟭𝟳𝟱𝟬𝟬⁣

𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗹𝘆 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗶𝘁  ⇨ 𝟱𝟬𝟬*𝟳 = 𝟯𝟱𝟬𝟬⁣

𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 ⇨ 𝟭𝟴𝟬𝟬*𝟮⁣

𝟭𝟳𝟱𝟬𝟬 – 𝟯𝟱𝟬𝟬 + 𝟯𝟲𝟬𝟬 = 𝟭𝟳,𝟲𝟬𝟬𝗸𝗰𝗮𝗹𝘀⁣

⁣
A single cheese burst pizza has around 2500 calories and single biryani may have around 2000 calories (just considering some common examples). So, with a single pizza or a single biryani, you may cover up most of the deficit that you created in a week. If you deviate in the weekend, not only you end up balancing out the calories but may also end up eating in a surplus. ⁣

I know by now you might be thinking that what if I create a huge deficit in weekdays and save calories for the weekend? By this you might save a few calories all together and might create some deficit but can you sustain with huge deficits for longer periods? Will you choose your weekend pizza over 700 grams of rice per week?⁣
