Calorie Intake and Expenditure

Calorie Intake and Expenditure

The Calorie Equation

Weight gain or weight loss is determined by the "calorie equation." If calorie-intake exceeds calorie-expenditure, we gain weight. If calorie-intake is less than calorie-expenditure we lose weight. If calorie-intake equals calorie-expenditure, our weight remains static.

Calorie Intake

All foods contain calories. Our calorie-intake is simply the total number of calories contained in the food (or drink) we consume.

Calorie Expenditure

Calorie expenditure is made up of three things. (1) Our Basal Metabolic Rate which accounts for about 60 percent of all calorie expenditure. Basal metabolic rate is the amount of energy or calories our body consumes while at rest. Basal metabolic rate varies according to a number of genetic and physiological factors, including our fat-muscle ratio and the amount of physical exercise we take. (2) Our Physical Activity. Typically this accounts for 30 percent of calorie expenditure. (3) Dietary Thermogenesis. This is the calories we burn as we digest food. It accounts for about 10 percent of the total calorie we expend.
