Maintaining a healthy weight requires keeping a balance . . . a balance of energy. The same amount of energy IN and energy OUT over time = weight stays the same. More IN than OUT over time = weight gain. More OUT than IN over time = weight loss. You must balance the calories you get from food and beverages with the calories you use to keep your body going and being physically active. Your energy IN and OUT don’t have to balance exactly every day. It’s the balance over time that will help you to maintain a healthy weight in the long run. For many people, this balance means eating fewer calories and increasing their physical activity. Take your free assessment here to see your daily food plan.
