The main culprit for weight gain is taking in more calories than you burn on a daily basis—a negative caloric balance. Combine that with an insufficient level of exercise and, over time, the additional calories accumulate and become stored as fat which leads to an increase in weight. In order to lose weight and drop your body fat you have to burn more calories than you take in a daily basis—a negative caloric balance. This can be accomplished by incorporating two things:
- Taking in fewer calories by adding healthier nutrition habits that include lower fat and lower calorie food options.
- Increasing the calories your body burns on a daily basis by adding regular exercise or physical activity to your daily routine.
When it comes to healthy nutrition and improving your eating habits, our philosophy is simple: calories in vs. calories out. How many calories are you eating a day (daily caloric intake) vs. how many calories are you burning (daily caloric expenditure). Our philosophy consists of three main components and a fourth that is important having long-term success:
- Calculate how many calories your body burns on a daily basis
- Determine how many calories you should be taking in on a daily basis
- Meal planning
- Cheat Meals
Weight gain does not happen overnight and neither does weight loss. It took time to put on the weight so it will also take time to lose it. To ensure that you permanently keep the weight off, make a conscious effort to incorporate healthy eating and regular exercise into your daily lifestyle habits by staying consistent.
