Why Calories in vs Calories Out is the Key to Your Diet
The first law of weight loss states that change in weight equals caloric intake minus caloric output. Caloric intake is the number of calories you eat and drink each day, and caloric output is your resting metabolic rate plus any physical activity expenditure. If caloric intake exceeds caloric output, then the excess calories are deposited as fat in your body, and body weight increases.
If caloric intake is less than caloric output, then your body fat stores supply the necessary calories and weight loss ensues.
Reducing caloric intake has been shown to be more efficient than just simply increasing exercise to induce weight loss.
Simply handing a person a 1,200 or 1,500 calorie diet seldom works. We acknowledge that dietary choices are based on a variety of factors, such as religious and cultural beliefs, a person’s socioeconomic status, and the health of the individual, all of which are taken into account during the meal planning process.
Most of the low calorie diets indicate that protein has the advantage of being the most satiating macronutrient and therefore most of the individual diets are high in protein, low in fat, and moderate to low in carbohydrate.
A good weight loss guideline is a total calorie intake for women to be not more than 1500 calories per day and for men 2000 calories per day.
However, you can eliminate carbohydrates (bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, etc.) from your diet and still not lose weight, because you are still consuming more energy than what your body require to function.
Therefore, portion control is of utmost importance to lose weight successfully.
