Calories: who how much?

Once I watched a scientific film about healthy eating, production, it seems, the BBC. The journalist asked the passers-by the same question: “What is calorie?”, And no one could answer. Everyone said: this is something that is in the products. There are a lot of them in chocolate, but nobody knew exactly what it really is.
I admit, I also learned the scientific definition, only when I began to be seriously interested in the issues of excess weight. The handbooks say that the calorie (kilo calorie is correct) is the amount of energy needed to warm up 1 liter of water by 1 ° C. I think it is not necessary to memorize this definition, because we are not in physics class. But it is important to understand that calories are a measure of energy, and not something else. (In ordinary life, for simplicity, everyone talks about calories, not kilocalories.)

A person spends a certain amount of strength per day. While he is going to work, walks in the park, takes a shower, even when he sleeps, the body constantly spends energy.
It is believed that during the night a person loses three hundred calories, although he doesn’t seem to do anything. In one hour of intensive training, when you leave the hall in a completely wet T-shirt, eight hundred calories are spent. But simple shaping more than five hundred of you will not pull.
If you do not turn to extremes (sleep and sport), then the figures are approximately the following: in one hour, lying down, a person loses only twenty-five calories, while sitting - fifty, standing
- hundred. When walking, of course, even more.
I write these lines, and on one of the TV channels the presenter says: “Celery is an ideal product for weight loss. A person, when eaten, spends more calories than he receives. ”
Yes it is. We consume energy and when we eat. And also - when we talk, cook, clean the apartment, we think.
By the way, an important note: in the cold season additional energy is needed to maintain normal body temperature, so in winter you feel like eating more (this is just a vivid example when our “liters” heat up to “degrees”, as in the definition). That is why many women have additional centimeters on the waist and hips.
So, if you add up all the calories we need in order to live one day, you get quite a lot. For a man - 2500. A large woman should get about 2,200 calories per day, a miniature - 2,000. In athletes, the daily rate of calories will be higher
- 3000 for men and 2500 for women.
It is important to understand that the body has nowhere else to take energy, except from food. Every day a person must eat so much to ensure the functioning of his body.

The calorie content of each product is different, it is always indicated on the label, I think it is not worth explaining in detail. Suppose you eat a hearty breakfast, lunch, dinner - each with 500 calories or a little more. It will turn out 1500-1700. And another 500 calories will contain the drinks drunk per day. In total, 2000-2200 will be released - as much as a woman needs in order not to get better and lose weight.

If your body has not received the necessary amount of energy for normal operation, it will turn to fat reserves, will pull energy from there. Then the most cherished wish will be fulfilled - you will lose weight! It is on this built many of the diets.

Calories: who how much?

  1. Calories calories
    Why so far failed to lose weight for everyone? We have already emphasized that the reason for this lies in the erroneous or inaccurate ideas about metabolism, about the mechanisms of accumulation and consumption of fat reserves. Mistakes give rise to doubts, and doubts make us stop in indecision. And one of these very common misconceptions is to think that the more satisfying a product is, the more
  2. To look into the eyes?
    Let your eyes look straight, and let your eyelashes look right in front of you. Proverbs of Solomon Retina is a part of the brain that has been taken to the periphery. Is this why so much is reflected in the eyes? It is known that the eyes are the most common target for the views of man. Even when we see someone on TV, our eyes are most often fixed on the speaker’s eyes, although
  3. Calories
    The value of products continue to be measured in calories. Calorie is the same unit of measure as an inch or yard. Low calorie is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram (20 drops) of water by one degree. A large calorie is the amount of heat required to heat 1 kg (about 2.25 pounds) of water per degree Celsius. Heat and energy are considered equivalents and
  4. Part 2: "how much"
    In the meantime, something completely different happens with part 2. If part 1 shows what an object is, then the "how much" part measures the quantity: how much of this and how many? This seems to be a bit, but this is much more. ↑ In the “how many” segment is determined by the number of objects that we see: four one, three others, and many others
  5. Picture 2: "how much" - the schedule
    Problems like "how much" are directly related to numbers. How many units of products have we sold? Do we have enough money to reach the end of the quarter? What happens in the stock market? These kinds of questions, loading our way of seeing "how much", make us constantly count (or at least try to count) the objects around us. Examples of “how many” problems: I am a financial analyst,
  6. Where and who lives better
    Where better to live in order to maintain health? In a large industrial city like Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Yaroslavl, or in remote Krasnoyarsk, or just on the periphery - the High North in the city of Nadym, which means: happy, kind, affectionate? Or choose a quiet life in the countryside? This question is not difficult, and we, the residents of a large industrial city with a developed
  7. Talk about calories.
    Most people losing weight today carefully calculate the caloric content of the food eaten, but they do it completely in vain, because the caloric content of the food eaten by and large does not affect anything. Surprised? It's not about the amount of the food itself, but about its qualitative composition, in the proportions of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Mainly carbohydrates. They, entering the body, are converted into glucose, which, on the one
  8. How much should we eat
    The question of how much you need to eat attracted the attention of many thinking men and women. But the answer was never given. So-called scientists have calculated our calorie needs. As I have already shown, this is a hoax. People are urged to eat what they call appetite for. But appetite is created by habit and can be worked out so that it will require either little food, or a lot. Excessive appetites
  9. Who needs practical psychology and why?
    The activation of practical psychological work in our country began in the 1980s. In just ten years, the number of practical psychologists has significantly increased, psychological services, psychological counseling have begun to appear everywhere, and psychological training has become very popular. However, this process proceeded most often spontaneously (Radzikhovsky, 1987). Social order for

  11. Step 2: Answer the question “how much”
    After we identified the players and understood what they were doing, we returned to the documents again to find quantitative data about each - something that allows us to change “how much”. After examining the masses of data, we decided that the first question “how much” that we intend to study will be related to the size of each company in terms of the value of annual income. Here are the results of seven companies with
  12. How much can a person live
    Why do some people live longer than others? Are there “secrets” of longevity and can we use them with you? These questions are often asked not only by young people, but also by people of old age. A systematic study of the duration of human life began at the end of the seventeenth century, and the beginning of this was laid by the English astronomer Edmund Halley, the very one who discovered Halley's comet, trying
  13. Well, how many times they told the world
    Fable! What a Russian ear will not stir at the sound of this word! Ivan Andreevich Krylov, in the assembly of monkeys, bears and donkeys! It would seem that he had exhausted this gold mine so much that no one wrote serious fables after him. Well, except, perhaps, Sergei Mikhalkov, but who knows those fables? But Krylov know everything. But let's, nevertheless, in order. As expected, the inventor or

The main thing in this diet is to reduce the daily caloric content to 900-1000 calories due to a substantial decrease in the amount of fat in the diet and an increase in proteins. It is recommended to include in the menu more vegetables, first of all cabbage,
  16. How many human sources of energy and substance?
    It’s too early to talk about the creation of prerequisites for the development of a complete theory of human nutrition, for there has not been found a rod that would allow to unite innumerable invaluable data collected by biochemists, biophysicists, physiologists and psychologists into a coherent system. In my view, any nutrition theory can be considered as such if it answers the main question arising from the
    It is known that some cancer cells may be insensitive to certain cytostatics, or during treatment they may develop resistance (resistance, resistance) to them. Resistance can develop for several reasons: changes in the structure of cell enzymes or metabolic pathways in it, modification of the assimilation and elimination of poison, etc. This type is especially dangerous.
