RE:Balancing Your Nutrition
How many times have you heard "weight loss is all about diet." Well, yes and no.
Let's get rid of the word "diet" and replace it with "nutrition."
Your body needs a balance of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to keep it balanced. Just like a car needs fuel, so do you! To redefine your health and keep your body functioning properly, you need to feed it the things it needs.
Do you need to go on a diet? NO!
weight loss = calories in vs. calories out + Eating the right things
What does that mean? You need to create a calorie deficit by burning excess calories through exercise, or cutting excess calories out of your diet. PLUS you need to add healthy food sources into your daily intake.
General Calorie Estimations
1 pound = 3,500 calories
Safe weight loss = 1-2 lbs/week
Losing 1 lb in a week = Eating 500 calories less OR Burning 500 calories through exercise per day
So how do you know what your normal calorie intake should be? How do you track your calories? How do you determine how many calories are in the food you're eating?? It all seems so complicated!
Luckily technology is here to help us.
