The Basics On Calories And Weight Loss

When it comes to calories and weight loss, it all comes down to the following equation: Fewer Calories From the Diet + Increased Activity Levels = Weight Loss

Exercise helps you increase the calories that you are burning off each day, making it easier to reduce your overall calorie intake, which then promotes faster and healthier weight loss. The more calories you can burn off each day, the more weight you will lose, to put it another way.

Calories, not the kinds of foods, are what will allow you to lose weight. Even if you were to follow some of the fad diets of the day, if you eat more calories than your body needs and that your body can burn off, you will not lose weight. You might see a drop of kilograms on the scale, but that might be just water weight and not true weight loss.

In order to lose weight and begin to improve your health, you need to start keeping track of not only the calories you are taking in, but also the calories you are burning off. To do this, it can help to keep a food journal and an activity journal for each day. This will give you an accurate idea of what your calorie load is like and how you can adjust your habits in order to promote weight loss. This observation of your habits will help you learn how you eat and how you should be changing those habits in order to create a healthier lifestyle that you can maintain for the long haul.
