Certain facts most of us overlook is the significant relation of calorie to activity is how this relationship is highly individualized. Caloric intake is highly dependent on one’s activity, if your work entails a lot of physical movement and strength, you will need a lot of calories. And your energy supply would be from foods rich in calories.
But, if your activity is sedentary and requires minimal energy, then your caloric need would also be low. Overweight or obesity happens when there is imbalance between the intake and the energy spent. Taking in too much calories and spending too little leads to the conversion of this energy into stored energy. Stored energy in the body comes in the form of body fat. Controlling one’s caloric intake would not be successful without considering one’s activity and lifestyle.
This is why it’s important to not only control your caloric intake by consuming low calorie snacks and meals, but also exercise!
