Calories in a Weight Loss Diet

1000

A calorie is a pre-metric measurement of energy, first defined in 1824 by Professor Nicolas Clement. In most cases this measurement of energy has been largely replaced with the joule, accept when it comes to calculating the energy within food. The measurement of calories is based upon specific heats of water and when referred to in food and nutrition the measurement is actually kilocalories which are larger units that over time have been shortened and are now referred to as just calories.
The human body uses energy in order to function, even when sleeping your body continues to use energy in order to repair and grow. Weight is gained when you consume more calories than your body uses and the excess is stored. In order to maintain a certain weight level you need to balance the number of calories you consume the number of calories your body uses to function.
Continually consuming more calories than your body will result in weight gain which, in turn, can lead to obesity. This can have a drastic effect on the body. For example, obesity increases the likelihood of some diseases including heart disease, type- two diabetes, breathing difficulties and cancer.
