I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday (or whatever day you are reading this)!
I am so excited to share some healthy inspiration with you this afternoon(or whatever time of day you are reading this)!
After all, what is life without having people to share it with?
We’ve all probably heard this one: 3,500 calories make up one pound of fat.
By this logic, we can lose a pound of fat per week if we have a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day for 7 days. (There’s so much more to it than this, but more on that later).
Similarly, we can gain 1 pound of fat if we take on a surplus of 500 calories per day for a week.
Calories are simply units of energy that you consume (eat) and expend (burn).
So what does that like like?
500 calories could be swapping a donut and a sugary coffee for an apple and wheat toast with almond butter.
It could be drinking water with lemon instead of 2 tumblers of pink lemonade at Chili’s.
500 calories could be taking two 15 minute walks.
It doesn’t have to be all or nothing! That’s my philosophy.
You know, health & weight loss is about more than counting calories or the number on the scale.
Best & Blessings!
