Hey Live Leaners,
In today's Live Lean TV video, I want to get back to the fundamentals and answer one of the most important questions regarding weight loss (or gain - yes some people need to gain weight)...
How many calories should I be eating in a day?
This truly is one of the key starting questions to answer on your weight loss/gain journey.
Now...before moving on...I need to make this clear....I do not count calories.
Does this mean you shouldn't count calories?
As anything in fitness and nutrition...IT DEPENDS.
a) understand the value of a calorie and it's macronutrient make up (protein, carbs, fat) just by looking at a food...
b) follow a solid workout plan... *cough* Live Lean Afterburn *cough*...
c) consume only whole natural food (not products) provided by the earth...
I'd say you don't need to worry about calories.
But lets be honest...maybe 5% of the population meets all 3 of these, and if you did, I'm sure you wouldn't be watching a video on it.
So with that said, if you're serious about losing or gaining weight, it's critical that you know your calorie numbers and measure them.
The things that get measured are the things that get done.
There are many different ways to calculate your calorie requirements but one of the most used and standard methods is calculating your BMR (basal metabolic rate) & your Activity Factor (Harris-Benedict).
I show you how to do this in the above video titled, How Many Calories Should I Eat A Day?
So calculate your numbers, and share them in the comment section below.
