Calories
What is a Calorie?
A calorie is a unit of measurement used to measure the amount of energy that comes from food.

Just like an inch measures distance, a calorie measures energy

Caloric Balance
Caloric balance is like a scale. To remain in balance and maintain your body weight, the calories consumed (from foods) must be balanced by the calories used (in normal body functions, daily activities, and exercise).
Caloric Needs
Nutrition and health require balance. The choices you make every day add up to determine your overall health.

It's important to choose foods that offer NUTRITIONAL VALUE for calories, and avoid those empty calorie foods!
Remember that maintaining energy balance includes being active!

On average, a teen burns 5 calories per minute of walking and 10 calories per minute of jogging.


To be healthy, it is not important to strictly count calories. Rather, it is important to understand that calories are related to energy balance
If you are...
Your caloric balance is...
Maintaining your weight "in balance"= You are eating roughly the same number of calories that your body is using. Your weight will remain stable.

Gaining weight in "caloric excess"= You are eating more calories than your body is using. You will store these extra calories as fat and you'll gain weight.

Losing weight in"caloric deficit"= You are eating fewer calories than you are using. Your body is pulling from its fat storage cells for energy, so your weight is decreasing
