Burning Calories

The Concept of CALORIES


CALORIES are needed to provide energy so the body functions properly. The number of calories in a food/diet depends on the amount of energy the food provides. The number of calories in a diet which a person needs depends on age, height, weight, gender, and activity level. People who consume more calories than they burn off in normal daily activity or during exercise are more likely to be over-weight.

Fat: 1 gram = 9 calories 
Protein: 1 gram = 4 calories 
Carbohydrates: 1 gram = 4 calories 
Alcohol: 1 gram = 7 calories

How many calories we need on daily basis?

The actual amount of energy consumed per day is a simple formula:

Daily Energy needed = “Amount your body needs” + “Amount you body needs to do extra things”

The amount your body needs is the total amount of energy required for your heart to pump, your lungs to fill with air, your body to keep warm, your hair to grow, your stomach to digest food and all those things you generally don’t think about in a day. This is known as the basal metabolic rate. This is what your body would need regardless of what activities you do. Generally speaking the larger you are the higher your basal metabolic rate. Think about it: a woman with 100 pound weight needs less energy to breath and pump her heart than a 300 pound man. This is no different than the amount of fuel a Mazda Miata needs to drive around town compared with an army tank.

The basal metabolic rate is usually pretty static, that is to say, it doesn’t change. If your body needs 1,000 calories of energy a day for your basal rate then it will need the same amount tomorrow and the day after that. It is also important to note that everybody’s basal metabolic rate is different.

The amount your body needs to do extra things is the total amount of energy your body needs to lift heavy objects, or type on your computer or walk to the store, etc. This is all the stuff that you don’t need to do just to keep alive, but you choose to do for whatever reason. Let’s consider this to be the amount of work you do in a day.

So we can now write our formula can like this:
Daily Energy needed = Basal Rate + Work
Refer Calorie Burning Chart for various exercises which can help you to plan your daily activities for fat burning & weight loss.

FAT should account for 30% or less of the calories consumed daily, with saturated fats accounting for no more than 10% of the total fat intake. Fats are a concentrated form of energy which help maintain body temperature, and protect body tissues and organs. Fat also plays an essential role in carrying the four fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, and K. Excess calories from protein and carbohydrates are converted to and stored as fat. Even if you are eating mostly "fat free" diets, excess consumption will result in additional body fat. Fat calories in food are readily stored, while it takes energy to transform protein and carbohydrates to body fat. The only proven way to reduce body fat is to burn more calories than one consumes.
Counting carbohydrates in the foods you eat can help you control your blood glucose. This is because carbohydrates raise your blood glucose more than any other nutrient.
The balance between the amount of carbohydrates you eat and insulin determines how much your blood glucose level goes up after meals. This means you need to know what foods have carbohydrates and how many carbohydrate servings to eat to keep your blood glucose within the target range before you follow any diet chart for weight loss. Refer Diet Chart which will give you an idea of calories present in some of the most common food items and plan your diet for weight loss accordingly.

The new guidelines for Indian Diabetics contains dietary recommendations based on several factors like calculation of Ideal body weight, Calorie needs as per body weight , no. of servings for different diet food groups/types for different calorie needs. It covers food for all regional diabetics. It also covers Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks, Dinner for Diabetics in India. It covers diet foods of various types viz, Cereals, Salads, Meat, Leafy Vegetables, Pulses, Beans, Chapatis, Rava Idli, Curd, Coffee, Dosa, Butter milk and many more.
