Weightloss and weight management really is easy.  It comes down to spening more energy then you consume. Understanding Calories for Weightloss as Simple as Pouring Water in a Jar for Keto, Macros, Eat by Color, IIFYM, Flexible Dieting and Every Diet or Food Plan.


Here is a simple way to look at weightloss and weight management.


Say water represents calories.  A glass mason jar represents how many calories you need every day.  If you fill the jar to the top but do not over flow it the water stays in the jar.  If you try and pour more water into the jar then the jar will allow, the water will overflow.  It does not matter when you will the jar.   All at once, or over the course of the day.  As long as you do not over fill the jar, nothing will over flow.


If you over consumer calories the extra calories will over flow some place, and that place is bodyfat.  It is that easy.  As long as you do not over consumer calories you will maintain weight.  If you consume less calories then you need the extra calories have to come from some place and that some place is once again fat.


Energy cannot be created or destroyed.  It is called the law of conservation of energy.


Calories come first when it comes to managing or losing weight.  Where the calories come from comes second.


Keto, Macros, Eat by Color,  IIFYM, and every other approach to eating to manage or lose weight works as long as calories are managed.  Under fill the jar and you will lose weight.  Over fill the jar and you will gain weight.  Fill to the top with out over filling the jar and weight stays the same. The real secret is whether or not the approach to eating can be followed long term.
