Maintaining a healthy weight and/or losing unhealthy weight is a science. What does it all boil down to? Calories, plain and simple.
You don’t have to obsessively count every single calorie, but here’s some food for thought if you want to lose weight or simply want to maintain it.
To lose weight, you need to consume less calories than the ones you burn (via exercise or typical daily activities).
To maintain your weight, you just need to consume the exact number of calories that you need and burn daily.
Figure out how many calories you need
Here’s a quick formula to estimate calorie needs on a daily basis:
Your Weight X 12 = Number of calories needed for weight maintenance
To lose about 1 pound per week: Reduce intake by 500 calories/day
Weight Loss Tip:Make sure you’re filling up on healthy calories and not junk food.
