Energy Deficit to Lose Weight
To lose weight, people must create an energy deficit by consuming fewer calories or increasing their physical activity, or a combination of both. This causes the body to use stored fat for energy, leading to weight loss. Eating a balanced diet with whole foods and engaging in regular exercise can help create a sustainable energy deficit and promote healthy weight loss. Additionally, drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep can also support weight loss efforts.
