So, this is just literally a brief introduction about calories. Calories is units of energy. You need calories to survive. So you actually have your carbs, your proteins and your fats. Each has actually a different calorie per gram. So for example, carbohydrates has four calories per gram of a carb. Your protein has four calories per gram of protein and fat is nine calories per gram of fat.
So you’ve probably heard in the past where they didn’t understand the dietary values of fat, so they’re ‘okay, well fat is the highest amount of calories so literally I’m gonna remove fats from your diet’. So that’s why they gave people low-fat diets because that was the highest calorie, so let’s reduce that, and they didn’t understand the benefit of what you use your fats for.
Alcohol, so booze, has seven calories per gram. So for example, 100 grams of your carbohydrates will be 400 calories. Protein 100 grams, 400 calories. Alcohol, if you have 100 grams of alcohol which is gonna be 700 calories, and then fats, obviously nine per gram, so if you have 100 grams of fat, it’s gonna be 900 calories.
There is a thing called your total daily energy expenditure. For this example, this is how many calories you need to function. So for example, at maintenance, say if you needed 2,000 calories to maintain the current weight that you’re currently at, say if it’s 2,000 calories, if you want to gain muscle you need to be in a surplus. So you need to be eating around 2,500 calories, that’s if you want to gain muscle.
If you actually want to lose weight, which a lot of people do, you need to be below your maintenance value. So say for example, if your maintenance is at 2,000, you need to be at, say, 1,500. Any diet that you have lost weight on this is what it does. Whether it be Slimming World, Weight Watchers, any of them, Cambridge diet. Any of these diets that you’ve followed and you’ve lost weight this is what you’ve actually done. You’ve been in a calorie deficit, and you’ve probably seen in a lot of emails, calorie deficit, calorie deficit

Recording your progress is key each time you’re in the gym using a training template each time you go this will show weekly progress and will keep you motivated.
Measuring how much weight you have lifted isn’t the only way to measure how much you have been progressing. Also, fat loss is measured on the scales which isn’t always accurate as bodyweight can also fluctuate due to water retention and other factors
