Look at the Numbers!

47% of Americans overestimate how many calories they should eat daily!! And when 53% of Americans are trying to lose weight, and 25% of Americans are trying to maintain their current weight, this could be a problem!

Here is a general rule for people trying to safely lose weight (at about a pound a week):

  • YOUR WEIGHT * 11 = The number of calories per day you should be able to eat and still safely lose about a pound per week.

What Americans are doing to lose weight:

  • Changing how much they eat…..71%
  • Exercising……………………………….62%
  • Changing how often they eat…..44%
  • Counting Calories……………………19%
