How the body utilizes calories:
Our systems’ work requires the consumption of calories. Every food we eat has calories. We need to follow one basic rule to lose weight Expenditure of Calories > consumption of calories This is the most important formulae we need to remember and we have to implement it by keeping an eye on what we eat. If we have a heavy body, our body requires more calories to maintain it. Just like a vehicle, a heavy vehicle requires more fuel, compared to medium or small-sized vehicles. Our body utilizes some amount of calories to produce energy, just like thermal electricity which produces electricity, but to do so it uses some amount of electricity by itself.
Reasons for Weight Gain
Everybody has their own reasons for weight gain, but loving yourself and keeping yourself fit is the most important thing we have to do. Weight gain is not an overnight process, reasons include unhealthy food, No physical activity, Post pregnancy.
