How to lose lockdown weight

Stick to a calorie limit

All you have to do is make sure you don’t overeat, and the weight will fall off.

If you religiously follow the plan, you could lose between one and two pounds a week.

If you were already overweight, this plan could help you get back on track and you could shed a stone with two months of hard work.

To help you understand the boundaries, the NHS can tell you exactly how many calories you need to eat.

The plan description says: “The plan is designed to help you lose weight at a safe rate of 0.5kg to 1kg (1lb to 2lb) each week by sticking to a daily calorie allowance.

“For most men, this means sticking to a calorie limit of no more than 1,900kcal a day, and 1,400kcal for most women.

“If you find it hard sticking to the calorie limit, use our BMI calculator to get your own personal weight loss calorie allowance.

“If you go over your limit one day, do not worry: it simply means you’ll have to reduce your calorie intake on the following days.”
