What Are Calories?
The main question often is, what are calories? How much do i burn? And how do i burn them? Calories are a unit of measure for energy. Your body runs on it. It's like human fuel. To burn them, you will need excercise. The right type of excercise is very important for you to achieve what you want. Cardio workouts and lifting are not the same thing, though they are both necessary (including women). To lose weight, you will need to be on a caloric deficit. That means eating a bit less than what your body needs daily. Livestrong is a very good website that can help you on counting calories. Counting them can be tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's a no-brainer.
