How You Can Lose Weight With This Simple Method...

If you're like most people, you want to lose weight but are intimidated by the jargon around metabolism, energy balance, and how you can use that knowledge to lose the weight you want.

Energy Balance

KISS- Keep It Simple Stupid. When it comes to weight loss, let’s keep it simple. For weight loss to happen, energy intake must be less than energy expenditure.

We know this isn’t what the latest social media influencer wants you to believe. At Pare & Prune, we believe in leading the way with what works. We get it, we are all individuals, and we have unique body types, different energy expenditures, different levels of stress, different levels of hormones, etc.

Follow The First Law of Thermodynamics

However, when it comes to answering the question of how to lose weight, we think that the first law of thermodynamics applies beautifully. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transferred.

The food you eat is a form of energy.

There are 4 parts to your total daily energy expenditure (i.e. how many calories you burn throughout the day).

  1. Basal metabolic rate- makes up 60% of total energy expenditure
  2. NEAT- Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis- makes up 25% of total energy expenditure
  3. Thermic effect of food.
  4. Exercise activity

You Must Be in a Negative Energy Balance

In order to lose weight, you must be in a negative energy balance. And, the only way to be in a negative energy balance is to consume less than you use.

Sounds overwhelming and confusing?
