Looking to calculate the calories needed to lose weight? Wouldn’t you rather find out what foods you need to eat to lose weight?
So many people want to know about the calories needed to lose weight. The simple answer is (and I’m being cheeky) less than you burn off. That’s an easy concept to grasp so we then go looking for a calculator to tell us how many calories we need to lose weight based on our current weight, height, gender and age. The calculator churns out a number and we start counting. It’s simple and logical, only it doesn’t work. Most of us can’t really keep this up because we can’t possibly remember the calories of all the foods that cross our plates. It’s boring and we start guessing (or wishing is perhaps more like it) and things simply deteriorate from there. But even if we could keep this numbers game up, we still would not lose weight by just reducing our caloric intake.
Our bodies are not calorie counters (so we can stop asking about the calories needed to lose weight – Yeah!)
Under the right circumstances, our bodies are metabolizers and fat burners. These are complex processes that require specific conditions. So rather than ask about the calories needed to lose weight, we need to ask: what kinds of food do I need eat to lose weight. What kinds of carbohydrates will not trigger my body to store fat? What kinds of fats are healthy and promote fat burning? What type of metabolism do I have? What is my ideal portion size? When are the best times for me to eat? These are the questions we need to ask ourselves if we want to lose weight and keep it off.
