How Much Weight Can You Lose With SKALD?

SKALD is short for “Skinimalism and Lifestyle Change”, a diet and lifestyle coaching program that helps you lose weight and change the way you feel. It combines the nutritional benefits of a plant-based diet with the positive psychology of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT for weight loss focuses on identifying and breaking down your bad habits – like eating too much and not moving enough – to replace them with – you guessed it – good habits!

We asked Dr. Alex Brown, a psychologist and adjunct assistant professor at the George Mason University School of Health, to help us determine how much weight you can lose after following SKALD for 3 months.

How Much Weight Can You Lose After Following SKALD For 3 Months?

According to Dr. Brown, you can expect to lose between 5 and 10 percent of your initial weight, depending on your body mass index (BMI) and whether or not you were overweight to begin with. Keep in mind that this is a conservative estimate. Some people have lost significantly more than this in the past, and, as mentioned by Dr. Brown, you can never tell how someone else’s body will react to calorie restriction until you’ve tried it yourself. So while these benchmarks may not be glamorous, they’re pretty good and achievable as long as you adhere to the program.


BMI And How It Affects Your Weight Loss

Simply put, the BMI is a number that we use to determine whether or not you’re obese. This number is calculated by taking your weight in pounds and dividing it by the square of your height in inches. So, if you’re 5’5″ and weigh 175 pounds, your BMI is 29.45. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), a BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight. A BMI of 20-24.9 is considered obese. You can find the BMI for your height on the NIDDK website.

What is interesting about the BMI is that although it takes both height and weight into consideration, it is primarily focused on weight. So, in some ways, it actually favors people with higher BMIs because they have a higher chance of losing weight than people with lower BMIs. Consider the following example: If you’re 5’5″ and weigh 175 pounds, you have a BMI of 29.45. Your chance of losing weight is around 83 percent compared to a person of the same height and weight but with a BMI of 27. For the purposes of our calculations, we will assume that both individuals have similar backgrounds (e.g., education level, age, etc.).

Body-Type And How It Affects Your Weight Loss

Another thing to consider when determining how much weight you can lose is your body-type. Are you more of a svelte person or a stout person? You can find this out by taking into consideration your height, weight, and the way you feel when you wake up in the morning. For example, some individuals are more likely to lose weight if they have a slender body-type and feel very energetic after waking up. On the other hand, other body-types (e.g., thicker people) are more likely to experience rebound weight gain after losing weight.

If you have a slim body-type and you wake up feeling tired and sluggish, it might be wise to limit your calorie intake or consider taking a multivitamin supplement. In cases like these, it’s important to note that losing weight can be difficult and requires a lot of dedication and willpower. That said, if you want to lose weight, you can try the Basic 4 diet, which is what SKALD is designed after. It consists of eating foods that are high in fiber, which slows digestion and absorption of nutrients, helping you to lose weight (and stay there). If you’re looking for quick weight loss, however, then you might be best served by a fad diet or a diet plan that is low in fiber. In those cases, you might experience some unpleasant side effects (e.g., diarrhea or constipation) as your body tries to adjust to a new way of eating. In the long run, of course, you’ll still loose weight, but it might not be the healthy, controlled weight loss that you’re looking for.

Genetics And How It Affects Your Weight Loss

If you want to lose weight, you’ve got to take into consideration your genetics. What is interesting is that although we all want to lose weight, some people are more likely to lose weight than others. This is largely due to your genes. Some people, for example, are more likely to be skinimalists (i.e., people who prefer a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and lean meats) than others. If you’re part of this group, you’re likely to experience faster weight loss than others. On the other hand, some people are more likely to be macronutrient (i.e., people who prefer complex carbohydrates and fiber) than skinimalists. If you’re part of this group, you’re likely to experience slower weight loss than others. This is because your body needs more time to process and absorb the food that you’re eating.

There are many different factors that you need to take into consideration before committing to a weight loss program. While it’s important to be able to look at the big picture (i.e., your BMI and how you feel), it is also essential to set realistic expectations about your weight loss. Only you can decide whether or not your current weight is healthy. You should also remember that if you want to lose weight, you’re in the right place. We’ve all been there. We want to lose weight too and feel better too, but sometimes it’s not as easy as it seems. It requires a lot of planning and self-discipline, but it’s worth it.
