Weight loss: It's all about the calories

Your weight is a balancing act, but the equation is simple. If you consume more calories than you burn, you gain weight. The logical solution is consuming fewer calories. It might be as simple as forgoing one extra item a day, swapping foods or trimming serving sizes. Give it a try! The number of calories you save may translate into pounds lost.
