Energy balance equation

Energy-Balance Equation

Energy balance equation1

Energy-Balance Equation

  • Body weight is influenced by:

    • Energy expended through physical activity

    • Energy gained through dietary intake

  • Energy is measured in kilocalories (kcal)

  • This is expressed by the ‘energy-balance equation’

Weight Stability

2000 kcal

2000 kcal

  • The left side represents energy consumed

  • The right side represents energy expended through physical activity or exercise

  • This situation depicts a balanced energy equation – a stable weight is achieved

    Energy consumed = Energy expended

Weight Gain

1840 kcal

    Energy consumed > Energy expended

    Energy consumed < Energy expended

Energy balance equation2

Energy-Balance Equation

  • Some people want to put on a few pounds to look better, or to “bulk up” for athletic events

  • Healthy weight gain is best achieved through a regimen of increasing (healthy) food intake while participating in a strength training program to develop lean muscle tissue

    • Respiration

    • Brain activity
