Any food: The simple equation for weight gain. If -- calories taken in (food) are greater than calories used (daily activity), the excess is stored as added weight (fat reserves). Trouble is, most people consume 3500 or more calories per day, yet may only need 2000. Talk to your doctor, nutritionist or health coach. I can help. www.thin.tsfl.com.

Any food taken in: Excess will make you gain weight. You need to limit your total caloric intake. It is usually helpful to have a diet rich in fresh vegetables and fruits and low in saturated fats and carbohydrates. Increasing physical activity is also essential to maintaining a healthy weight.
