The 3 Variables
Why does it seem like it is easier for one person to lose weight over another? Why can two people eat the exact same thing and one person loses weight while the other person gains weight? Why can we eat more calories one week and lose weight and then eat few calories the next week and gain weight? Why can we exercise like crazy one week and gain weight and then not exercise the next week and lose weight? The answers to all of these questions come down to 3 basic variables or our energy requirements: Basal Metabolic Rate (our metabolism), Thermic Effect of Food (what we eat), and Thermic Effect of Physical Activity (how much we move).
