When it comes to weight management, balance is key – you have to balance calories in with calories out.
WHAT IS A CALORIE?
A calorie is a unit of energy supplied by food. No matter the source - carbohydrates, fats, proteins, or sugars – a calorie is a calorie.
Calories per gram?
Foods are a combination of the three “macronutrient building blocks” - if you know how many of each is in a given food, you can calculate the calories (or energy) that a food contains.
- fat - 9 calories per gram
- carb- 4 calories per gram
- protein- 4 calories per gram
Why is calorie counting dif cult to regulate?
- The bottom line is that the amount of calories ingested does not necessarily equal the amount of calories that are digested or absorbed.
- raw vs. cooked-How food is cooked or prepared affects the digestion of the nutrients. The more something is cooked, the more calories are available for digestion.
- whole vs. processed-Processed foods are basically “pre-digested” forms of food. They are already broken down and the nutrients are more readily available.
- digestibility of fiber- 3. DIGESTIBILITY OF FIBER
- Your body does not completely digest or absorb ber. Some calorie counting approaches only count the calories that your body actually absorbs - this leads to a con ict in numbers.
The number of calories a person needs per day depends on many factors: Age, height, weight, gender, and activity level.
- ADULT WOMAN
- 1,600 – 2,400
- ADULT MEN
- 2,000 – 3,000
- YOUNG CHILDREN
- 1,000 – 2,000
- OLDER CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
- 1,400 – 3,200
Finding the right balance
Generally speaking, to lose 1–2 pounds per week, calorie intake must be reduced by 500–1,000 calories per day.4 This means that if you consume 2,500 calories per day, you will drop your calorie intake to 1,500–2,000 per day
Physical activity conbriutes to weight loss
- Physical activity increases the
- by 500–1,000 calories per day.4 This means that if you consume 2,500 calories per day, you will drop your calorie intake to 1,500–2,000 per day.
- amount of calories that your body uses for energy. Reducing your caloric intake in combination with regular physical activity creates the necessary calorie de cit, allowing for sustained weight loss.

Volumetric: Barbara Rolls
- Volumetric- people just like to eat
- the more (volume) the better
- given the choice ppl would chose to eat more food over less
- understand caloric density of foods
- fill up your plate with foods that are full of calories - eat more + weigh less
“weight is a bit like height”
- if you 6 foot you’ll never be 4foot. we have a general body type and all types are beautiful and can be health
- Calorie density (CD) is the number of calories per pound for each food. Notice that CD is lowest in unprocessed plant foods.
- By lling up with a plant-based diet, a person can balance their blood sugar and avoid cravings.
- This method will help naturally “crowd out” less favorable food choices, thus helping to keep calorie consumption low to maintain a healthy weight.

Define health coach:
Health Coach is a guide and supportive mentor who empowers clients to take responsibility for their health and achievement of their personal wellness goals.
A Health Coach does not take the place of a medical practitioner by diagnosing, treating, or taking responsibility for bringing about wellness changes in a client’s life; rather a Health Coach encourages positive changes within client-driven wellness goals.
While the role of a physician to a patient tends to be authoritative, the role of a coach to a player is more supportive.
- Health Coaches have a strong focus on behavioral choices along with
- the basic understanding of dietary patterns and overall health, ful lling an important and distinct role that compliments the tasks of health professionals and works harmoniously to develop strategies that enact real, lasting lifestyle changes.
