Explain The Relationship Between Energy Balance And Weight Control
Relationships: The myth out there is that if you want to lose weight you need to eat less and exercise more. This works in the short term but not really in the long term. Focus on a low glycemic index diet and you are more likely to lose weight rather than the amount of calories you consume. ...Read more
The ratio: Your energy balance is the balance of calories consumed through eating and drinking compared to calories burned through physical activity. Energy in is what you eat and drink. Energy out is what you burn through physical activity. ...Read more
Energy/weight: Very interesting question! We used to think that 'calories in/calories out' is all one needed to do to lose weight.That is, expend more calories than you take in. Unfortunately, this does not really help with weight loss in the long term. Focus on the quality of food (low glycemic index) rather than quantity. Also remember, you cannot exercise your way to weight loss! ...Read more

Divine orchestra: Weight management depends on both the foods you eat, hormonal balance, and your physical activity. Foods provide both calories and important biochemical information to your body -- you can affect the proteins your genes make through the foods you eat.

Carbohydrates are typically broken down into sugars very fast, so they are not very good at keepin us feel full. These wide swings in blood sugar contribute to over eating and Insulin resistance.

Carb Quandry: Some "complex" carbs (brown rice, whole wheat) are metabolized slowly and are better for weight management but ultimately if you consume more calories than you need you will gain weight. Reduce all carbs, especially simple carbs (white bread, rice or pasta). Eat frequent (6) small meals a day. Exercise vigorously for about 150 min a week, drink plenty (60 oz) of water and get 8 hours of good sleep. ...Read more
Weight Control: Think of food as fuel. If you pair your food with your activity then rather than store calories in fat you will tend to burn calories for work. Simple sugars are quickly available to the body so if you eat them and relax or go to sleep your body will tend to store the extra calories until you have work without food. Eating most of your calories earlier in the day to use while active is best. ...Read more
Not a good idea: Not many can lose weight eating just dinner - however good your selection. As your glycogen store gets depleted during the day, your body shifts to burn alternate fuel and process your intake differently. It is best to have the more substantial meal during the day, > 9 hours before your bedtime. Have a light meal at night to avoid going to bed with a full stomach and have snacks during the day. ...Read more

Ringers: I would be very skeptical of reviews you might see on line, those can come from anywhere, including the brother in law of the producer.

Weight training (mornings), a negative energy balance (diet), now adding cardio at 65% of my max hr for 45 min (evenings) for a desired body fat of 5%?
You will...: Burn muscle as well as lose body fat. Personally, not a desirable approach. The elist football players I see at ut have body fat measurements in the 7% range (not linemen, obviously). 5% is somewhat extreme. Also, your cardio at 65% maximal heart rate is too low to improve cardio fitness. Therefore I assume that your sole goal is extreme leanness to the point of......? ...Read more
BMR: BMR is the rate your body burns calories to maintain self. To loose weight, you have to stay under this number.
