How to Lose Weight Eating More Food

How Many Calories Should I Eat (to Lose Weight)?

Whether you are trying to actively lose weight or simply to maintain a healthy weight, one thing that almost guarantees success is getting the right amount of calories each day. This is easier said than done, however.

If you’re wondering “how many calories should I eat daily?” you’re not alone. Many people wonder what the right amount is and often allow themselves too few calories when trying to lose weight.

In this article, I hope to address once and for all the amount of calories that each of us needs to eat daily.

Steven Siemons ACSM CPT's picture

As a lifelong fitness enthusiast and armchair philosopher (BA in Social Science, UC Irvine), Steven communicates his passion for health and wellness with an offbeat slant. It's a lifestyle, he will insist; and fitness is really a journey to find what fits--for you. His personal fitness journey has primarily centered on resistance training for more than fifty years. An intense three-year exposure to Shotokan Karate under Sensei Ray Dalke and Sensei Edmond Otis in Southern California during his thirties (he is now 65, since you're wondering) had a significant impact on his appreciation for the martial arts as fitness disciplines. It is his sincere hope that you will find insight, inspiration, and knowledge from the ideas he sends your way.

Gamifying Good Health - Cash-Curated Wellness

Study findings published in the journal Social Science and Medicine prove, yet again, that money is an effective motivator to “increase both the magnitude and duration of weight loss.” Imperative dialogue given the prevalence of overweight and obesity has more than doubled in the past three decades, leading to rising rates of non-communicable diseases.
