Energy Balance

Energy Balance

Energy Balance is the relationship between the energy you absorb from the food you eat and the energy you burn.

In simple terms, it’s the difference between energy in and energy out.

When we are in a positive energy balance, we will gain weight. This means there is a surplus of energy and your body will store this surplus as either fat, muscle or other tissues.

When we are in negative energy balance, we will lose weight. This means we have a an energy deficit, and the body will draw on its existing tissues such as fat, organs and other tissues to convert them into useable forms of energy.
