Do you know how many calories in pizza you just ate? How many calories do you need to eat per day? Did you meet your daily caloric needs? There is a delicate balance between calories consumed and calories expended. In order to lose weight, you have to expend more calories than you consume. Simple enough. However, you can easily fall in the weight loss trap of not eating enough calories to support weight loss. Therefore, you have to make sure you are eating enough calories. It is hard to count calories in your busy lifestyle. We at CPT Fitness have made it easier for you. On our this page you will find a calorie counter that will save all the foods you record for the day. Using a calorie counter is essential to ensuring you are on the right track to achieving your fitness goals.
