do you seems to gain 5-10 lbs a year without even trying? Those stealth pounds pad our bodies because we take in just a few more calories per day or week than we burn off. Just a mere 50 extra calories per day will equal 5 extra pounds a year. Don't believe me? Let's do the math:
50 calories/day x 365 days in year = 18,250 extra calories
Divide 18,250 calories by 3500 = 5.21428571 pounds
But in the same light, if we move a bit more everyday, we can counteract the bulge by creating a calorie deficit.
So many activities, so little time. Banging on this computer is not one of them! ;-) Now go take it outside!
