Can You Eat Donuts & Lose Weight Too?

You bet! The trick is to include the caloric values in your daily totals.

Daily totals? What's this?

This number is the amount of calories - or energy values that your body uses each day in order to maintain its healthy weight.

Exceeding Required Energy Equals Weight Gain

Let's say that Sara's body requires 1600 calories in order to be at its recommended healthy weight. If she consumes more calories than her body uses - even if the energy is from a healthy food such as celery, cucumber, carrots or broccoli, the excess becomes stored in the fat cells.

Decreasing Required Energy Equals Weight Loss

Amazingly - there is just a small difference in body weight when the individual consumes 100-200 calories over their required energy amounts. The result is about 10-15 pounds more in stored body fat. That's a very minimal difference in energy intake values - and a huge different in body weight.

Simply put, if you consume about 100 calories more than your body uses, you are probably about 10 pounds overweight. Trim back and see those pounds naturally decrease.
