Defining Daily Energy Needs

The amount of energy which is housed within the foods and drinks that you choose to insert into your healthy eating plan are based in large part of the amount of activity that you perform throughout your day.

Think about this situation much as you would when driving your automobile. First, let's fill up the tank to one-third full; this will represent the first meal of the day - breakfast.

If you fuel using poor gas, then the auto will sputter and die-out along your drive. But no matter how well or poorly that the auto drives - it will only go a certain amount of distance before it runs out of fuel.

At this point, it will require more before it will run again. Therefore - time for lunch.

Take note however that the human body operates quite differently than an automobile. And it's a good thing because if it did such, then once the energy from breakfast was emptied, the body would fall over dead, right?

But no - it smartly pulls the energy that it requires to keep it in motion from the stored energy inside of the fat cells.

In the days of old when life itself depended upon the growing conditions, the lack of pestilences, the abundance of sunshine balanced with rain - having this reserve energy was a very good thing. It meant life or death in many situations.

However, in the new age food is abundantly plentiful in most areas of the globe, although sadly hunger and famine still exist.

For those areas where food is a bountiful situation, those spare fat cells simply weigh the body down in an unhealthy way.

As a note, when there is no energy to pull from fat cells, the energy is obtained through other modes by the body - thus impacting health substantially (and negatively).

Calorie Needs for Individuals 181 to 190 Pounds

Individuals that weigh 181 pounds and lead an inactive lifestyle require about 2350 calories per day.

For moderate activity the requirements increase to about 2,700 and for active individuals 3100 kcals.

Keep in mind that whenever we consume more energy values than is used by our body, the result will be weight gain as the body stores the excess in our fat cells.

The amount of daily energy that our body uses each day is never the same. Some days we will be more active than others - therefore we'll need more energy in order to support this level. If we don't consume more energy to meet these needs, the body will then go to the stored fat in the cells in order to satisfy these energy needs.

The result?

The body not only has immediate energy, it will also decrease in weight [and in size] due to the energy that was pulled from the fat cells.

So how much food do this weight require. Here is an example of servings from the Food Pyramid.
