I have worked with many people that did not have any idea how many calories they were consuming. Once they became aware, educated you might say, about the calorie content in their food choices they were able to lose weight simply by being able to keep at an amount that created a deficit in their ‘energy balance’. Very simply, if the amount of calories that are consumed are greater than the amount of calories expended or burned, this will equal weight gain. The reverse is weight loss.
So it’s a new year . . . . . are you wanting a new you? Well that can be a good thing, to make changes in yourself, and that can also be overwhelming. If you’re anything like me and most other people, you tend to see ALL your faults and flaws and want them to all be gone! Well, the number one New Year’s resolution is to lose weight and for years that was my focus too.
