Achieving Weight Loss Booklet Determining daily calories to promote weight loss. Lets take a look at the exchange system. Exploring the guide to record keeping.
Daily Calories If you burn more calories than you consume, youll lose weight! Lets figure out how many calories you should get each day.
Calorie Deficits In order to lose 1 pound per week, you would need to have a 500 calorie deficit. Balance the deficit between smaller meals and increased activity.
Exchange System You dont have to memorize the calorie content of every food you consider eating. Use our simple exchange system to get an idea of the ballpark calorie content.
Eyeballing Calories 1 cup nonstarchy veggies = 20 calories 1 cup fruit = 50 calories 1/2 cup starchy vegetables = 80 calories 1/2 cup cooked dried beans = 100 calories 1 cup skim dairy = 100 calories 1/2 cup cooked grain or 1 slice bread = 100 calories 3 ounces lean meat = 150 calories 1 cup oil = 2000 calories 1 cup sugar = 774 calories
Record Keeping Guide Daily food records have space to log breakfast, lunch, supper, and three snacks. Write down what you eat!
Daily Food Records… Continued Fill in food type boxes too! Use an X for every 100 calories consumed. Use a / for every 50 calorie consumed.
Weekly Food Records Youll use the same shorthand as your daily food records (X, /, etc). Remember to record your weekly goal at the bottom of each page.
More Resources! Extra calendars, daily food records, and weekly food records. Well also have copies of the handouts provided at information sessions.
