Three Steps to Fitness Success
Regardless of whether you are wanting to gain, lose, or maintain your current weight,
The first step in obtaining the physique of your dreams is by utilizing proper nutrition.
Calories: What are they and why does everyone count them? To put it simple, a calorie is a unit of energy that deals specifically with heat. In nutrition, a calorie is the amount of energy people get from food and drinks. More specifically, calories provide energy in the form of heat, so our bodies can function. Once our bodies receive this energy, it does one of two things: store the excess energy as fat, or use the energy as fuel. So before you think about stepping foot in a gym, or purchasing nutritional supplements, you need to understand your body’s caloric needs.
Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), is the amount of calories your body burns at a complete rest. In other words, if you (at your current age, height, and weight) went into a 24-hour coma, your BMR states the amount of calories you would burn during that time. Your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) takes your BMR, factors in your daily activity level, to determine approximately how many calories you burn every day. This number tells you your starting point. From here, make the appropriate adjustments to ensure that your goals are both obtainable and met. Fill out the BMR/TDEE calculator to see where your starting point is, and take the first step to Becoming Your Best You.
