People put on weight when they take in more calories than they burn. If you think of food as fuel, the energy content of the fuel is measured in calories. A slice of bread, for example, has about 100 food calories. If you were to add up all the calories you consumed in a day -- breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks -- that's your energy input. Your body uses this energy for everything from breathing to moving around. Everyone is different, but over the course of a day, an "average" man expends something like 1800 calories and an "average" woman around 1500 calories. It turns out that even a slight energy imbalance will, over time, have consequences. Eating only 50 calories a day more than you burn will over time translate into about one pound a year, or 30 pounds over three decades.

All diets work by restricting calories. Since simply telling people to eat smaller portions doesn't sell books, most commercial diet plans are built around a nutritional trick that makes it easier to restrict dietary intake. Food is made up of four basic components (so-called macronutrients): water, fats, protein and carbohydrates. Therefore, it follows that telling people to avoid fats or cut out carbs will automatically eliminate a lot of food choices. Low-carb diets, for example, are effective, because they remove an enormous number of potential foods such as bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, etc., from a person's diet. Learn how to enjoy all worlds of nutrients, by eating right.

The relationship between diet and health has been very complicated to pin down. Long-term controlled experiments are more or less impractical. While scientists can observe with great accuracy everything a person eats over a few days, most diseases develop over years or decades. On the other hand, it is impossible to monitor precisely what a person eats over a period of 20 or 30 years. One approach is to use large prospective studies. We believe that a change in behavior, and everyday needs would benefit you better on the long run.
