In order to lose weight* effectively, you need to ensure that your daily calorie intake* is less than the total calories burned. If you eat more than what your body needs, the excess calories will be stored as fats. Thus, tracking the calorie content of your every meal is one of the easiest ways to lose weight, as you will naturally avoid high-calorie foods and opt for lower-calorie alternatives that allow you to lose weight while satisfying your nutritional requirements*.
Remember however, that there’s a healthy range to keep to even if you want to lose weight fast. Cutting down too much can harm your health*. A general rule is not to consume less than 1000 calories lower* than the amount of calories you burn. The absolute minimum calorie intake should be 1200 for women and 1500 for men*.
