Weight Loss Basics: Calories, Energy Balance, and Metabolism

let's start


Losing weight requires eating less calories than you expend. Diet and exercise must create a calorie deficit.

Calorie deficit

The balance between dietary calories and physical activity and biological systems affects weight reduction.

Energy Balance

Knowing food and beverage calories might help you control your calorie consumption.

Calorie Awareness

Healthy Eating

Eat fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, healthy fats, and less processed and high-calorie items.


Portion Control 

Controlling portions prevents overeating. Use smaller plates, attentive eating, and your body's hunger and fullness cues.

Meal Planning

Planning meals and snacks ahead of time will help you eat better, regulate portions, and avoid impulsive eating.

Mindful eating

Slowly chew and notice hunger and fullness. This prevents overeating and improves dietary habits.
