In brief: Intake>>metabolism

One gains weight when the number of calories eaten is greater than the number of calories burned.
Go to www.Caloriecount.Com and open a free account. You'll be asked a few questions about your age, height, weight and activity level and then it will tell you how many calories you need each day. There is a bar at the top called "search for food" that will tell you how many calories are in the candy.
