For all the talk about carbohydrates versus fats, the truth is that weight gain and weight loss are simply a matter of energy balance.

Take in more calories than you expend in the course of the day, and you'll gain weight. Expend more than you take in, and you'll lose weight.

It only takes a few extra calories a day over the course of a year or two to cause a slow weight gain. It doesn't matter whether those extra calories come from an apple or from a cookie. Calories are calories.

What's more, eating the same number of calories every day while performing less physical activity will also add the pounds. It's a delicate balance between input and output, and it isn't at all clear that excessive input is the primary cause of our obesity epidemic.

Weight Loss & Weight Management
An increase in physical activity is an important part of your weight loss program. Physical activity improves your muscle/fat ratio - thus raising metabolism for easier weight loss - and boosts your motivation to maintain the weight you lose.
