Understanding Caloric Needs

The amount of energy in a drink of food is measured in a unit called a calorie. To maintain a healthy body weight we must burn more calories than our bodies take in on a daily basis. If there is an imbalance of calories taken in vs calories burned, the body will start to store fat or on the flip side, lose muscle. On average, women need 1500-2000 calories a day to maintain balance. On average, men need 2000-2500 calories to maintain balance. These averages fluctuate depending on level of physical activity, age, current weight, and quality of calories.
