Why is it so important to ensure that you are consuming the correct number of calories for your goal? Well, whatever your goal, be it gaining muscle or losing weight, the number of calories you consume is vital to this.

Do you know how many calories you eat in a day? Well done if you do, but most of us don’t, and we need to get Calorie Smart when it comes to your weight loss or weight gain goals.

Every day, we all burn calories just living- some of us burn more than others, depending on our lifestyle and other physiological factors. This is called a Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR).

When we eat, we are consuming calories and these are going to be used for fuel for our daily activities. If we want to lose weight, we need to ensure that the number of calories we consume each day is slightly less than the number of calories we use per day.

If the calories we consume amount to more than our calorie expenditure each day, regardless of how ‘healthy’ the food is, we will end up steadily gaining weight because we are in a calorie surplus.

Tracking calories can be time consuming and a pain – so at BeanLite we have done it all for you!
