If I'm eating the right amount of calories to lose weight…

Can I Eat Anything I Want & Still Lose Weight?

eat what you like and still lose weight?

Yes because…

You lose or gain weight based on how much or how many calories you eat and NOT What You Eat.

This is how you gain weight

Let's say your metabolism burns 2000 calories per day or your body only needs 2000 calories per day to maintain your current weight but you constantly eat 2500 or 500 extra calories everyday then you're going to gain weight because your body takes those extra calories and stores them as fat and it DOES NOT matter where those extra calories you eat comes from.

So if you eat too much or too many calories (of anything whether it's healthy or unhealthy) you're going to gain weight.

This is how you lose weight

Again, let's say your metabolism burns 2000 calories per day but you constantly eat 1500 calories per day then You're going to lose weight because you're not eating enough calories to maintain your weight.

Whenever you don't eat enough calories (regardless of what you eat) your body will burn off your bodyfat for energy (causing you to lose weight) to make up for the lack of energy/calories you're not eating.se

Examine the picture below to get a better idea of how to lose, gain or maintain your weight eating whatever you like…

I'm 5'4 male. Currrently at 126.8 lbs . My goal is 119.4 lbs. I'm doing this so i could lose my love handles and tummy bump. I also workout 6x a week (Hiit treadmill, leg raises, oblique crunches, planking). I also limit myself to 1500 calories/ day. I can't seem to balance the amount of carbs i take/day but it doesn't exceed the 1500 calorie a day diet. Will this impact the body goal that I'm aiming for?

I'm 52 and 5'6 and weigh 170-1722. I've lost 15lbs since April 8th of last month but have been at a plateau for the past couple of weeks. I am staying between 170-172. I am using myfitness pal and pretty much staying at 1200 calories a day. I would be happy to lose 10 more pounds but I can't seem to get past this plateau :(

May 24, 2016


You are eating too low in calories at 1200, go up a couple hundred
