"Increase Activity in Day-to-Day Life Calories Burned by Moderate Activities In the table below, the calories burned are for a 150-to 160-pound person. A lighter person would burn fewer calories, and a heavier person more. Calories Burned by Day-to-Day Activities Activity Calories Burned For many people, it's more realistic to get exercise by incorporating activities of moderate exertion in their day-to-day lives, such as walking the dog or taking stairs instead of the elevator."

"They count calories and compare ratios of fat calories to total calories. In most hospitals, the sole concern of the certified nutritionists who prepare hospital "food" is putting together a proper balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. As you will soon learn, this is tantamount to nutritional insanity. • Proteins are essential for the growth and repair of all body tissue. Ptoteins ate made of amino acids, some of which your body can produce by itself, and some of which must be included in your diet."

"The low-fat group was asked to lower their fat intake to 20 percent of their total calories, but this was never achieved. At the end of the first year, the low-fat group was eating fat at a rate of 24 percent of their total calories, and by the sixth year this had expanded to 29 percent. The comparison group averaged 35 percent at the end of one year and 38 percent at the end of the sixth year. The low-fat group was also asked to increase their consumption of fruit, vegetables, and grains, but the investigators admitted that "the differences in fruit and vegetable intakes were modest."

"Each can contained 310 calories, 16.1 grams of protein, and 1.09 grams of EPA. Patients were assessed for weight, body composition, dietary intake, resting energy expenditure (REE), and performance status. Patients consumed a median of 1.9 cans daily. All patients were losing weight at the start of the trial at an average rate of 2.9 kilograms (kg) monthly. After administration of the fish oil—enriched supplement, patients had significant weight gain at both three (average 1 kg) and seven weeks (average 2 kg). Dietary intake increased significantly by almost 400 calories per day."

"Eating 1,500 calories a day, which is recommended for most women, will require you to limit your fat intake to 300 calories.23 In fact, a fat intake of 150 to 200 calories would be preferable. One tablespoon of olive oil contains 120 calories. One tablespoon of mixed omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 oils contains 135 calories. ?Buy all oils stored in glass, rather than plastic, to avoid contamination of the oil by toxic, carcinogenic PCB's. Changing the way you eat depends on changing the way you cook."

"Unable to import food or fertilizer, Cuba saw the calories and protein in the average diet drop by almost a third, from 3,000 calories a day to 1,900 calories between 1989 and 1994. The Soviet collapse resulted in an almost 90 percent drop in Cuba's external trade. Fertilizer and pesticide imports fell by 80 percent and oil imports fell by 50 percent. Parts to repair farm machinery were unobtainable. The New York Times editorial page predicted the imminent collapse of Castro's regime."

"For example, if food supplies were more equitably distributed, every person could receive about a hundred calories more than the 1,800 to 3,000 calories required for health. But currently people in North America, Western Europe, and Japan use (and to a large extent waste) 140 percent of their daily caloric requirement, whereas populations in countries such as Madagascar, Guyana, and Laos obtain merely 70 percent. Current trends in energy consumption are likewise unsustainable."

"Stevia has zero calories, so it cannot serve as food for cancer cells. Xylitol contains calories (about 40% less than sugar), but its slow release into the blood gives it a much lower glycemic index. If taken in moderation, Xylitol is unlikely to pose a problem. However, refined carbohydrates, such as pasta, white bread, pastries, and cakes are quickly broken down into glucose and act just as refined sugar does. (Note: complex carbohydrates as found in whole grains and washed white Basmati rice are fine, but avoid most other types of polished white rice due their depleted nutritional value."

"On American farms in the early 1800s, the balance between calories expended and calories produced as food was about even. This occurred as tools reached a high stage of refinement but before machines replaced human labor and traditional knowledge. It implies a distinction between tools and machines, between work done with tools and work done by machines. Production improved while entropy was kept to a minimum. Under the current industrial farming system it takes sixteen calories of "input" to produce one calorie of grain, and seventy calories of input to produce one calorie of meat."

"Combine that with binge-purge activity, where a person is losing a lot of the calories and nutrients in the purge cycle, or with anorexia, where they don't consume enough calories to sustain a balanced level of minerals and vitamins . .. you begin to understand this problem." The zinc connection also may help explain the predominance of eating disorders in females as opposed to males. "We finally realized that zinc is highly concentrated in the male prostate, providing a mineral essential for sperm development," Dr. Schauss says. "

"A lighter person would burn fewer calories, and a heavier person more. Calories Burned by Day-to-Day Activities Activity Calories Burned For many people, it's more realistic to get exercise by incorporating activities of moderate exertion in their day-to-day lives, such as walking the dog or taking stairs instead of the elevator. While a dedicated exercise program is preferable, including more physical activity throughout your day can help you maintain a basic level of fitness. Park your car a block away from your destination and walk."

"Reducing calories, however, means a reduction in the amount of essential nutrients the body needs for optimal health. Just to meet the daily RDI's for essential nutrients, you would need to consume over 2,000 calories if you are a woman, and 3,000 if you are a man. Furthermore, when you take into account all the factors that affect the nutrients in our food, even eating well does not guarantee you are getting all the nutrition you need. Instead of cutting calories to lose weight, make a conscious effort to eat better."

"The system by its nature uses vastly more energy than a pre-industrial one, and is also very inefficient: far more calories of energy from fossil fuels are put in than we get out as calories of food. We'd do better - if it were possible - just to eat the oil directly. For example, it takes 127 calories of fuel to fly in each calorie of iceberg lettuce from the United States to the UK. According to one estimate, the US food system consumes ten times more fossil energy than it produces in food energy."

"Appendix B: Weight Loss Weight gain can be understood as resulting from taking in more calories than are burned for energy. Limiting calories in the diet and increasing exercise are both valid approaches to weight loss. It is important to note that the ability of the body to burn nutrients for energy may be limited by deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals. Much of the modern diet is made from refined grains such as white flour. White flour is commonly found in breads and noodles. White flour is routinely enriched with certain nutrients."

"If you add 4 pounds of muscle to your body, every day you automatically burn an extra 200 calories or so, free of charge (plus another 200 calories from your exercise). Energy The Chinese call it Chi; the yogis of India call it Prana; here in the States, people call it Life Force. Whatever you call it, it can be seen, measured, photographed, felt, and manipulated. According to Chinese medicine, restriction in its flow is the ultimate cause of all disease. Exercise stimulates and helps move this "energy" through blocked areas of the body."

"Refined grains, by contrast, are among the worst processed foods, adding calories and quickly digested sugars without much nutritional value. You should also keep these in glass jars in the pantry—they all make great foundations for easy, affordable meals. And again, buy exclusively organic ingredients whenever you can. • Barley • Bulgur • Brown rice • Rice pasta • Jasmine rice • Whole wheat pasta • Soba noodles • Quinoa • Millet • Wild rice Beans Many stores sell beans in bulk. Look for the big plastic bins in the bulk-food aisle."

"Spectrum Organics canola oil • Spectrum Organics safflower oil Beverages and Juices The average American gets one-fifth of his total daily calories from beverages. Most popular beverages—sodas, juices, shakes, and even coffee drinks—are packed with sugars or artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, and other additives. I avoid these beverages and stick with good old-fashioned water, which is calorie, sugar, and additive free. If you want flavor, try adding a slice of lemon or lime or some fresh-cut herbs (mint is delicious)."

"Eating less fat is a proven weight-loss strategy—and not just because fat has over twice the calories of carbohydrates, says Dr. Olson. "You know why I think watching your fat helps? It's because it gives you more freedom," she says. "I think when people are counting calories, they can feel restricted. But counting fat grams makes you feel like you have more say in what you eat." Many nutritionists today suggest that no more than 25 percent of the calories in your diet come from fat. For a woman who weighs 160 pounds and eats 1,900 calories a day, that means no more than 53 grams of fat."
