Managing Your Budget

Managing Your Budget

How good are you at “balancing your checkbook”?

“Diet trends often focus on one food or one nutrient, promising it will be the magic bullet for losing weight and keeping it off forever. But when registered dietitians analyze a weight-loss plan, invariably it turns out the key is reducing your intake of calories.
Budget your diet just like you budget your finances. If you overspent in the calorie department one day, try to make up for it in the exercise department the next.
Over time, if you save up calories, you are able to have that once-in-a-while splurge and not feel like you’ve blown your calorie budget.”
