Lets Talk Energy in versus energy out!
Before you over indulge a little to much. Lets discuss a few things!
Your weight is a balancing act, calories play a big part.
The more sugar we consume the more we crave....
A mince pie has 258 calories with 19.4grams of sugar that equals roughly 45-60 minutes of exercise to burn this off, this would be moderate exercise.
Calories are the energy in food, our bodies demand a constant supply of calories to keep us functioning.
From thinking to running a race.
Fats, carbs and protein are the types of nutrients that contain calories and good nutrition that our bodies require.
Calories are converted to physical energy or stored within your body, either for recovery and repair, or stored as FAT.
Stored fat will remain unless you use up those extra calories that you have consumed, either by reducing your calorie intake or increasing your daily exercise.
THIS EQUATION IS SIMPLE
IF YOU EAT MORE CALORIES THAN YOU BURN= YOU WILL OF COURSE GAIN WEIGHT.
3500 calories equals 1 pound/ 0.45kilograms of fat. You need to burn 3500 calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound.
Cut 500 calories a day from your diet, you would loose about a pound a week=
500x 7= 3500 calories.
Please NOTE THIS IS THE HEALTHY WAY TO LOOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT LOOSING LEAN TISSUE( MUSCLE)
Cutting calories can be as simple as
Reducing your portion sizes
swapping high calorie foods
making good food choices.
With Christmas just a few weeks away, think
about the food you are consuming,enjoy this festive season, but do be aware of how many extra calories you are consuming.
87 CALORIES= 20 MINUTES OF MODERATE EXERCISE
106 CALORIES= 25 MINUTES OF MODERATE EXERCISE
149 CALORIES= 35 MINUTES
210= 50 MINUTES
350CALORIES= 1HOUR PLUS
One small glass of wine equals 120calories.
