weight management does = calories taken in & calories expended = fat loss
BUT......how do you know the amount of calories your burning in a 24 hr period? In a hour long work out? while you sleep for 8 hours? How do you know how many calories you'll need to consume in a 24 hour period just to maintain survival (heart-beating, respiration, organ functions etc..)
This is your basal metabolic rate (BMR), Thermal Effect of Food (TEF), Estimated Energy Requirement (EER), Activity Calories (AC), and Goal Adjusted Estimated Energy Requirement (GAEER).
By figuring out your lean body mass %, you can figure out exactly how many calories you need a day to stay the same weight, loose weight or gain muscle mass. With your specific fitness goals I can help you get the exact amount of calories you need daily get results. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
