100 Point Strategy To Halt Weight Gain

Weight loss doesn’t depend on whether calories come from carbohydratesprotein or fat. To lose a pound, you must create a 3,500-calorie deficit by consuming fewer calories, burning more calories through physical activity, or a combination of both.

The upward trend in the number of overweight women is caused, on average, by an imbalance of only 100 extra calories per day. Eliminating this 100-calorie imbalance by eating a bit less and getting a bit more physical activity each day may hold the line on weight gain for many women. This can be accomplished in an almost unlimited number of ways. Below are several ideas on how YOU can start to trim and burn about 100 calories a day.
