Defining the Body's Caloric Requirements
The difference in weighing 141 and 150 pounds for an inactive individual amounts to a little over 100 calories consumed per day. This is equal to any of the following foods: a banana, an apple, a pear, 1/2 a cupcake, 2 rice cakes, 5 prunes, about 2 ounces of grilled salmon, a large slice of cheese, a cup of low fat milk or a serving of low fat cottage cheese.
Unfortunately, the body doesn't recognize healthy vs unhealthy food choices when it comes to caloric content.
Simply put, when the body experiences an overage of kcals - it recognizes that these are a precious thing. Calories equal energy; energy equals life.
Therefore, the human body's top priority is to find a way to save those precious amount of leftover energy for later use. They may mean the difference between life and death. The body's solution? Store excess energy (calories) in cells - commonly known as 'the fat cells'.
Adding Up the Values
One of the best methods for ensuring that the body remains in balance where caloric input/output is concerned is to add a good healthy dose of activity to the daily routine.
While the body regulates calories in a methodic manner, there is a balance and rhythm involved in the storage of excess energy.
While an individual may exceed their calorie needs for one day, weight gain may take several days to appear.
