Negative Net Calories


3600 calories = 1 lb. This "diet" is more of a lifestyle change. The goal is to burn more calories than consumed. Set a daily goal of how much you want to have as your net calories (Intake - Activity = Net). Needs to be a negative number to loose weight, positive number will cause weight gain.

 How To Follow Negative Net Calories:

Log all of your food as well as enter your activities including sitting, standing, work, as well as exercise. Use your Recommended daily intake as a guide to how many calories you are eating, budget for the extras or eating out. Your daily activities will dictate how many calories you can eat. If you want to eat out or enjoy a piece of cake, become more active that day to burn more in order to keep your negative net cal goal for the day. No food restrictions except compensate with more activities and budgeting calories.
