If you want to lose weight, CALORIES DO COUNT! If you want to lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you consume. All physical activity burns calories, even activities like standing, sitting and sleeping. The more vigorous an activity, the more calories burned. To lose 1 pound, you must burn 3500 excess calories (500 calories per day over the course of a week).

Health care professionals recommend slow weight loss as the safest and most effective plan. You lose weight gradually over a period of time.

One-half to one pound per week slow weight loss promotes long-term loss of body fat.

If you reduce your calorie intake by 300 calories a day and increase your activity to burn 200 extra calories per day, you can expect a steady weight loss of approximately one pound per week

The heavier a person is, the more calories they will burn. Look under your average weight category below to see how many calories you burn per 10 minutes while doing a particular activity. Or you can use a simple calorie calculator by following this link to use our Calorie Calculator to see how many calories you will burn (for your weight) for many different activities.

Before you begin any exercise or diet program, you should have permission from your doctor.
