Sample text

In the world of nutrition and health, the term “calorie” refers to the amount of energy in food and the amount of energy the body uses. In food, calories are energy locked inside three groups of nutrients: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. These nutrients are released from food during digestion, then absorbed into the bloodstream and converted to glucose, or blood sugar. In your body, the food energy in glucose finally gets released into trillions of body cells, where it’s used to power all your body’s work—from your heartbeat, to push-ups, to the smile that spreads across your face.

Gaining, or Losing, 1 Pound One pound of body fat equals about 3,500 calories. Therefore, losing 1 pound requires a 3,500-calorie deficit. The opposite is true for weight gain. The following scenarios describe how an average person might gain or lose weight. ⅷ To gain 1 pound: If you added 250 calories from an extra sandwich, fruit salad, or a bag of chips to your normal eating plan every day—without boosting your activity level—how long might it take to gain 1 pound? 3,500 calories = 1 pound of body fat 3,500 calories ÷ 250 calories per day = 14 days, or 2 weeks ⅷ To lose 1 pound: If you burned 100 extra calories by walking about 30 minutes during your lunch hour 5 days a week—without boosting your calorie intake—when would that pound come off?

A healthy weight actually is a range that’s statistically related to good health. Being above or below that range increases the risk of health problems, or decreases the likelihood of good health. The smart approach to your best weight is really no secret—only common sense. A healthful lifestyle, which includes regular physical activity with an eating pattern chosen for variety, balance, and moderation, makes all the difference. Maintaining a healthy weight throughout life is best for health. Does that mean you need to be “everyday perfect”?
