Consuming the correct amount of calories? Find out now!

If you're expecting a magic number that works for everyone and will solve all of your problems, this article is not for you. The most imperative thing to realize when it comes to calorie consumption is that the amount of calories that one person may need may be drastically different from the amount of calories you need. 

1. Metabolic Rate 

The very first thing that will determine how many calories you need is your metabolic rate, which varies from individual to individual. If you did nothing all day, your body would still be burning calories, and this is your metabolism working for you. You have probably already figured out how many calories you need to eat in order to remain satiated, and maintain your weight. Once you are aware of this, then you can consider the other factors. 

2. Lifestyle

Second, you need to consider you lifestyle and how active or sedentary you are day-to-day. If you are a die-hard exercise extraordinaire, your body will need more calories in order to excel (try our Ultimate Beauty Body Formula for a great pre-workout pump). If you sit all day, your body doesn't need as many calories, as consuming too many calories will lead to weight gain.

 

 

3. All calories are not created equal

While this may be a controversial topic, as many people believe all calories are created equal and that it's all about the number of calories a day you consume, we argue otherwise. If your diet is extremely "clean", meaning mostly whole-foods, lean meats, and unprocessed, you will probably find that you can actually eat a lot more calories, as your body will be hungrier more often. This is the diet preference we advocate for our beauties, with a cheat meal here or there (of course). 

4. Trust your body

At the end of the day, your body is incredibly smart and will work with you if you allow it to. Listen to your body when it tells you that it's fatigued, energized, hungry, full, etc. If you are truly in-tune with your body, you will effortlessly maintain a weight that is healthy for YOUR body. Own your body, babe.
