Diet Tip #2: Don’t Underestimate Your Caloric Intake

If you have been shredding calories – according to the cardio machine’s calorie counter – and reducing your caloric intake but are still not losing weight, chances are your caloric assessment is in your favor but unfortunately not accurate. “The bottom line is that people underestimate the calories consumed, and overestimate the calories burned through their exercise programs, said Michael Atwood, expert personal trainer at the largest health club in New England, and author of The Health Club Diet. Talk to a registered dietician as well as a personal trainer to determine the number of calories you need to eat and expend to reach your diet-related goals.
