What is a Calorie?

 

I have suggested that you figure out how many calories your body uses each day.  Now that you have figured this out, what does it really mean?  What is a calorie?  The scientific definition for a calorie is the amount of heat necessary to raise the temperature of one gram of water one degree Celsius.  More simply, a calorie is just a measurement of energy that your body either burns or stores.  For appearance and health reasons, we want to minimize the amount of calories that our body stores.

Look at it this way.  If you are caring more body fat than you would like right now, it is nothing more than stored up energy.  All you need to do is force your body to use up that extra energy.  You can accomplish this by increasing your activity level and decreasing your calorie consumption.  Review Weight Management Lesson #1-4:

  2. Hi Suzanne:
    That’s quite observant of you to notice that.  Actually I was wondering when someone would mention that!

    Here’s what we just did on our newest menu that just came out. 

    Instead of having a separate section for 400 calorie items, which are now a bit larger (maybe around 500 to 550 or so, since most people are used to eating way more than 400 calories in a meal) are listed within whatever category they fit into like breakfast or sandwiches. 

    They are now called balanced bites and have an icon next to them which resemble a balance scale.

    Great question and thanks for pointing that out!

    btw, my favorite balanced bite is the Garden Patch.  love that!
