Calories and Weight Loss

belly fat
Calories are units used to express the amount of energy. In general, calories used to indicate the amount of energy contained in food. Calories are burned and processed materials to produce energy everyday. Every person has different normal caloric needs according to their activities. an athlete has different caloric needs with a housewife or a teacher or a minister.

Therefore, the number of calories in food is required, to take into account the energy balance. So, to know about the relationship between calories and weight loss, here's what you need to know: "if the number of calories consumed is less than calories used, the weight will be reduced because the energy from the fat reserves will be used. Conversely, if the number of calories consumed is greater than calories used, the weight will increase. excess energy will be stored as fat. ". The excess fat can increase the risk of chronic disease. So if you are suffering from obesity and want to reduce levels of fat in the body, you have to use the theory above.

But there are things that must be considered in reducing the daily calorie intake, do not reduce your calorie intake is excessive!, Because this will only damage your body. For example, we use the example of the general caloric needs, which is 2000 calories, we can restrict only 1800 calories, do not cut back to only 1000 calories. Lack of calories, it makes the body do not want to burn fat, because to burn fat, the body also needs calories.

To lose weight, and intends to reduce body fat, you can use to measure the consumption of low-fat diet following: 35% protein, 45% carbohydrate and 20% fat.

Each 1 gram of protein contains 4 calories, 1 gram of carbohydrate contains 4 calories, and fat contains the most calories per gram higher at 9 calories

The sample count : when we want to give 1800 calories intake per day in the body. So the carb is 45% of 1800 is 810 Calories. 1 gram of carbohydrate contains 4 calories then 810 Calories is 202.5 grams of carbohydrate should we eat in a day. 35% protein in a day means 630 calories come from protein, 157.5 grams. 20% fat requirement of 1800 calories is 360 calories means for 40gram fat.

Just imagine, if your normal daily caloric requirement is 2000 calories. However, you put 2300 calories into your body, and you just use it as much as 1800, there will be a buildup of the remaining 500 calories are ready to be used as fat in your body. Moreover, if the source of the calories you consume, the majority is high fat, or derived from sugar which is only empty calories. For that, it is very important offset the calories that we eat with physical activity and exercise. If you are an office worker who every day just sitting in front of a computer, take your time to exercise every day to keep in order to your stomach is not distended. :)
