Make Sure You're Not Overconsuming Calories
You need to use up more energy than you take in order to lower your body fat percentage, so monitoring your calorie intake is important. In order to maintain your weight, "Caloric needs are based on numerous factors," Stephanie Ferrari, a registered dietitian with Fresh Communications, told POPSUGAR. "The most important ones for a healthy individual include gender, age, weight, height, and activity level."
Registered dietitian Jessica Levings from Balanced Pantry recommended making an appointment with a registered dietitian so they can help you design an individualized eating plan based on your calorie needs and weight goals. If you're unable to meet with an RD, use this formula to calculate how many calories you need to lose weight.
