  • SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS IS achieved through the creation of a negative energy balance, wherein the amount of energy taken in is less than the amount burned or utilized through physical activity and/or exercise. There are 2 factors to energy balance: energy intake and energy expenditure. Weight loss can only be achieved through modifying one or both of these factors. The focus of this report is on energy expenditure, keeping in mind that any reduction in energy intake will add to the effects of… CONTINUE READING
