Calorie Weight Loss, The Power of a Well Thought Out Weight Loss Strategy

Aug 18, 2007
Despite the rise in pertinent information obesity is still increasing. Sugar, fat and processed foods continue to do a number on people worldwide. The increase in knowledge concerning cardiac disease, stroke and hypertension indicates that people understand the ramifications of poor diet, but fail to practice sensible dietary choices.

Weight loss and weight gain is simple; when you work off more calories than you take on board, weight loss results. Lets make it even simpler. Count the calories in the food that you eat.

Then, count the calories that you expend in exercise and general activity. If your calorie activity outstrips your caloric food intake, you lose weight. In this article we will discuss the mathematical simplicity of weight loss and weight gain.

It sounds much easier than most people are able to achieve. Negative calorie weight loss is a sound method of weight loss. There are however, factors that can frustrate caloric weight loss.

Health issues, pregnancy, emotional eating, and eating disorders, are but a few of the factors that impact your ability to maintain a negative calorie weight loss program. Weight loss is challenging to many. Some have even tried to find that magic pill.

Others have used surgery. Still others have tried to use food itself. For instance, there is a school of thought that believes certain foods have a negative impact on calories. The belief is that it takes more calories to convert the calories in the food into energy. In other words, these conversion calories amount to more calories than is stored in the food eaten.

Negative calorie foods are asparagus, broccoli, beets, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, carrot, garlic, papaya, spinach, turnip, zucchini, apples, oranges, lettuce, grapefruit, pineapples, strawberries and raspberries.

It is a known fact that these foods supply much needed nutrients. But you will burn more calories getting the energy and nutrients than they have, thereby dipping into your fat stores just to digest food.

Most of the animal kingdom are herbivores. Do you see them wasting away from eating nothing but negative calorie foods? Do these negative calorie weight loss foods have calories? Of course they do! Are those calories more or less than other foods? They are less.

If you desire to lose 1 pound, you must have a calorie deficit totaling 3500 calories. As much as you may struggle to lose weight, you will not lose 3500 calories in one day. Lets do the math.

On a regular day you eat 1800 calories. You want to drop that to 1500. In addition, you increase your exercise regimen to four days a week instead of three. This workout now assures that you will lose approximately 350 calories on your workout days.

At this rate, you will lose approximately 1 pound per week, or 3500 calories. Weight loss is not rocket science, you can easily figure out what you have to do to lose a certain amount of pounds.

It is not possible for you to gain two or 3 pounds everyday. What you may be experiencing is a water weight gain. It is the body conserving water on a cellular level. Stress can bring it on, or it can even happen during a womans monthly cycle. Did you know that you can lose the water by drinking more water?

Many believe that weight loss is a tricky science. It is really a simple one. Research indicates that whenever an exercise program is part and parcel of your overall weight loss strategy, the weight comes off and stays off.
