Your body needs energy to carry out daily activities. This energy comes from the foods we eat. These foods are measured in units of calories. The following calculator helps you determine your daily calorie intake.
Most people are engaged in different weight loss programs with the hope of losing weight. But, have you ever stopped to ask yourself what is it that helps people to lose weight in the first place?
The simple answer is, ‘calories you take in versus the calories you expend’. To calculate and burn the calories to lose weight, you need to understand what calories are.
What are calories?
In nutrition, calories are defined as the unit of energy that is obtained from foods and drinks. Your body cells need the calories to function normally and that is why you need to ensure that you meet your daily calorie intake.
To dynamics of weight loss and weight gain, you need to understand what the calories are and what their role is in their body.
The daily calorie intake is directly linked to the energy expenditure. This means that for you to be able to lose weight, the daily energy expenditure needs to be higher than the daily calorie intake.
To gain weight, you need to maintain a higher energy intake than the energy expenditure, i.e. eat at a caloric surplus. The opposite is true if you want to lose weight wherein you must burn more than you take in.
