Unfortunately, my 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge hasn't been going so well...at all! So, I'm going to have to start doing a little more leg work on my own to get this weight off. With all the information floating around about weight loss and diets it can be hard to decide what is fact and what is fiction. But do you know the basics when it comes to calorie intake? How much do you need to maintain the weight you are at and how much should you cut to lose weight? The key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is balancing calories in and calories out. If you consume the same number of calories as you burn each day, then you will maintain your current weight. Below is some great information to get you headed in the right weight loss direction.
