Weight Loss 101

There are no secret formulas that will get those unwanted pounds off for good. Knowledge is your key to success. All you need is some basic science, a little bit of math and the motivation to put that information to work for you.

Here is what you need to know:

• Your body uses the calories you consume as fuel.

• Weight loss is a simple calorie in vs. calorie out equation: Burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight.

• 3500 calories is equal to one pound of body weight.

Easy peasy, you say. Yep, it is. Now comes the part that eludes a lot of people - applying that information to daily life. To make it easy, let's take it step by step:

Determine the number of calories you are consuming on a daily basis. Admittedly, this is quite a daunting task for many. The thought of counting every calorie consumed doesn't sound nearly as fun as carelessly sipping a few margaritas at happy hour. However, if weight loss is a serious goal for you, journaling the food you eat can provide you with some significant insight into why those pounds continue to linger. How you journal is completely up to you. Pen and paper works just fine, online journals are all over the web and smartphone users have several apps to choose from with calorie counts at their fingertips. Honesty is the crucial element here. Yes, eating your child's leftover mac 'n cheese or French fries counts. So does the piece of candy you took from the candy jar at work and the three beers you drank while watching T.V. You need a realistic picture of your eating habits, not the photo-shopped version you want it to look like. It's not usually the meals that are causing you to gain weight, it's the snacks and mindless grazing that does it. If you eat it, you own it.

Determine how many calories do you need a day. Most online journals will ask for your basic stats (height, weight and activity level) and will provide you with a number of calories based on that information. These will provide you with a general guide for how many calories you need. However, because metabolisms vary greatly from person to person a much more accurate way to determine your specific calorie requirements would be to do a metabolic test available at most gyms. These tests will measure the oxygen exchanged by your body at rest and while at work to determine your specific metabolic profile and thus your calorie requirements per day. A personal trainer can work with you to interpret the results of your test and how it applies to your weight loss goal.

Determine how many extra calories you want to burn a day. Did you over do it on the pasta at dinner? Ate the whole pizza for lunch? All is not lost. Hit the gym for a heavy sweat session and you can still go to bed feeling alright about yourself. It may even make you think twice the next time you are staring down a piece of cheesecake if you remember the amount of effort it takes to exercise those calories away. A heart rate monitor will help you determine the exact amount of calories burned every session, taking the guess work out of your equation. Most cardio machines will also calculate this number for you but be sure you enter your weight and age when prompted for a more accurate count.

Do the math. Now that you have the three pieces of the puzzle, how you fit them together to achieve weight loss will depend on your lifestyle and preferences. You may find that you are simply consuming lots of empty calories and can easily cut back 5oo calories a day. Not willing to give up any delicious calories? Then you'll need to hit the gym to make up the difference. Any combination totaling a calorie deficit of 500 calories every day will put you on the path to losing 1 pound a week, which is a safe rate that can maintained until you hit your goal weight.

See, no magic involved at all. Simply being smart about the food choices you make every day will help your cause tremendously. When you only have so many calories a day to work with, making every one of them count toward the goal of fueling your body and filling you up is critical. No room for empty calories. The same principal applies to budgeting outgoing dollars against incoming dollars - every now and then you can splurge without it wiping you out, but eventually overspending will catch up with you. Spend wisely and all is good at the bank. Eat wisely and all is good at the scale.
