Weight Loss - Calories In Vs Calories Out

Losing body fat is something that has certainly caused a lot of people grief throughout their life. I know that I certainly hard trouble with my body when I was in my late teen years, and the physical and emotional distress of being overweight was all most too much for me at the time. Now, as a personal trainer, I see countless clients who are just so caught up with their negative body image, and with the misinformation that is fed to them about weight loss, that they just do not know what to do and suffer from paralysis by analysis.

It really doesn't have to be that way! Weight can be a very simple and (relatively) pain less experience if
you know what to expect and how to do it.

For those that are aware, there is a quite simple process to losing weight, and it relies on the law of thermodynamics, which, when regarding weight gain and weight loss, states that any organism that consumes less energy than it burns will lose body tissue.

Weight Loss - Calories In Vs Calories Out

If you eat more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. On the flip side, if you eat less calories than you burn, you will lose weight. I told you it was simple!

Other elements to weight loss, such as exercise, only act as peripheral tools that can be used to burn more calories, and hence, loss weight at a quicker rate; however, this is where a lot of confusion comes in. I see many clients come in with a mindset that exercise is some kind of 'magic pill' of weight loss. It is in this way they may go for an hour long walk and burn three hundred calories, then reward their efforts by eating a seven hundred calorie dinner, which, if not calculated into the total daily caloric total, will result in weight gain!

At the end of the day, weight loss comes down simply to calories in versus calories out. You can do absolutely nothing all day but lie on the couch and lose weight. On the other hand, you can spend all day exercising and gain weight. It all comes down to the amount of energy you consume, and if that exceeds the amount that you burn, weight gain will ensue.

When constructing your diet, it is important that you pick the correct foods so that you remain healthy, energetic and satiated when trying to lose weight. Foods that I commonly recommend to my clients include all lean meats, such as chicken and beef, all fish (including fatty fish), all vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs, some milk products and some whole grain pasta and bread products. Through a diet constructed of these kinds of foods you will consume enough protein to ensure that mass muscle is not loss, as well as enough healthy fats to make you body run as efficiently as it possibly can. Carbohydrates are thus eaten when necessary around workouts and times of physical exercise, to help fuel your body for action.
