Understanding Calories :)

Salam :)

this is a breakthrough for me
2011 will be different
i hate to admit that last year i did not care about calorie at all
i did not care what kind for food went into my stomach
i just felt the food in my mouth
and filled up myself with snacks

some people will hate my entry
bragging about going into healthy eating and diet
so i still here
writing,.sorry you all have to read it all hehe
for the sake of loving my self
i will continue
to get back my own that trapped in me for just too damn long time

i dont know where to start
but really
i want to thank my old schoolmate
that introduced mynetdiary to me
all i have to do i just key in or add in the food i eat everyday
i just like very simple diary
than the program will add up the total of calories that i eat
before that
i keyed in my BMI to find out my total calories needs for a day

what is calorie ?
calorie - a unit of heat equal to the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree at one atmosphere pressure; used by nutritionists to characterize the energy-producing potential in food

"Calories are how much energy your body gets from the food and beverages that it consumes,"
ou must find the right balance of calories every day, depending on your overall goals. Eating too many calories and not burning enough through physical activities would yield a weight gain, while not eating enough calories [to keep up with your calorie burn] would yield a weight loss,"

and these are excellent tips for beginners :)

How many calories should you need a day?

If you're at a desirable body weight and have plenty of energy, your calories in food intake is probaly ok. However if you're gaining weight and feel tired a lot of the time, you may want to consider counting your intake of calories in food and changing your daily diet, because as you ingest extra calories your body will convert the excess energy to body fat. Ensure you don't eat less than 1200 calories a day, that's the minimum you need to get your nutrients and stay healthy.

The USDA figures show the average male 5 feet 10 inches in height and weighing 174 pounds, needs 2,900 calories per day - performing light to moderate activity. The average female, 5 feet 4 inches and weighing 138 pounds, needs 2,200 calories per day.

What is your desirable weight?

Being overweight or underweight is defined in terms of weight for height, according to the Body Mass Index (BMI).

To calculate your BMI see our Body Mass Index Calculator

To find your height to weight ratio see our Height to Weight Ratio Chart

Calories Burned During Sex

Ok, if you really must know the number of calories you burn having sex or during sexual activities like foreplay we have put together a tongue in cheek article so you can calculate the number of calories burned having sex.

Some tips to help lose weight:

a) Start everyday with breakfast because your body will absorb as many nutrients as possible from the breakfast and this will boost your body metabolism.

b) Instead of one big meal, try to eat more times having smaller meals and calculate your calorie intake. You don't get fat because of a lack of exercise, you get fat because you don't eat the right foods at the right intervals each day.

c) Eat slowly, chew more and drink more water with the meal.

d) Choose foods that are low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates, such as whole-grain cereals and breads.

e) Drink lots of water, a glass every one - two hours will keep you feeling full.

f) Try a different type of food each day. The new flavors will save you from diet boredom

g) Change your diet from high calorie foods, eg. fatty meats, oily dressings, regular soft drinks to lower-calorie options like fish, zero-calorie dressings and water.

h) Switch to high fiber foods, low fat diet and, most importantly, exercise regularly.
