It is useful during a weight loss process to keep track of your calorie intake and maintain a basic calorie deficit in your diet and exercise routine. In order to do this, it is important to develop an understanding of the calorie content of various foods.
This will allow you to see what foods in your diet have the greatest calorie content. It is often possible to greatly reduce the calorie content of your diet through identifying a few worst offenders and reducing their intake.
You should compare your calorie consumption to how many calories you are burning. For an estimate of the number of calories you burn a day, you can see our calorie calculator that will give this estimate based on some basic details about yourself as well as your general activity level. You can then look at the calories burned during specific exercises in our calories burned calculator.
With an understanding of both how many calories you are consuming and burning, you should aim for a basic calorie deficit to achieve consistent long term weight loss over time until a healthy weight is reached.
