You will lose one pound every time you burn up 3,500 more calories than you consume.
Conversely, you will gain a pound every time you consume 3,500 more calories than you burn up.
If you decide to lose one pound a week, you must change the balance of your eating and exercise so that you burn up 500 more calories each day than you take in. Since seven times 500 is 3,00 you will lose a pound each week.
ROLE OF EXERCISE
Exercise is a great way to extend your life-line. Remember that overweight means an increased risk of premature death. Overweight people often have higher blood pressure, higher blood cholesteroll levels and are more likely to develop diabetes as adults than people at the proper weight.
Exercise will help protect you against life-threatening ailments.
It will also help you control your appetite. Physical activity does not necessarily increase your appetite. In fact, regular exercise often has the opposite effect. It controls your urge to overeat.
While exercise is of great value, don't expect it to do the impossible. You would have to walk moderately fast ( at 3.5 miles an hour) for 60 minutes to burn up the calories (300) in a fairly small piece of apple pie.
You must, therefore, combine healthy exercise with a low-calorie diet if you need to lose weight.
