Is Counting Calories Important For Losing Weight?

by Wendy on May 17, 2017

The simple truth is that if you want to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat. If you eat more calories than your body uses, the leftover will be stored in the body and you will inevitably put on weight.
Counting calories sounds simple, but it can be more complicated than you think. How many calories you need every day depends on many factors: your weight, your age, your gender and your activity level. Those who are physically active need more than those who do not exercise at all.
Most people underestimate the amount of calories they eat. Snacks, sodas and alcoholic drinks can contain surprisingly many calories.
Effective ways for counting calories include websites and apps that can help you to figure out how many calories you are eating every day. Tracking your calorie intake for a while has many benefits. It can help you understand how many calories your meals really contain, to understand where all your daily calories come from and how much physical activity you will need to do to burn them off.
