To lose weight we need to burn more calorie than we take in, this the recommended/normal way to lose weight, if you leave an inactive life, that is you do not do work in place that requires more exercise, activity or manual labor, you need to take in moderate amount of food that your body needs for energy to enhance weight loss.
A normal person burns between 1500-2000 calories from the food consumed per day to stay alive, whereas someone seeking to lose weight will need to take in lesser amount of calorie per day to lose weight, the recommended amount of calorie for weight loss is 1200-1500 calorie from the food consumed per day but if you can make it or trim it down to 1200 calories per day, I assure you that your weight loss will be fast and rapid.
For someone that lives an active life, that is someone that does a lot of exercises and manual labor, this number goes up because a lot of energy or calorie per day is needed, the calorie required here ranges from 2000 and above from the food consumed.
If you are working to lose weight(inactive person) avoid all snacks, sugary or junk foods this is because these food are unhealthy and contain sugars that increase weight but if you are an active person that engage in manual labor, you can try that because you can burn these food during work or exercise. Hence, this weight loss discussion is based on food table for weight loss, a food table is a series of food that follow each other from time to time, that is from Monday to Saturday in column and from breakfast to supper and in between meal in row designed by a nutritionist, dietician or doctor that show or teaches how and when to eat.
