How Did I Get So FAT!


"I never saw it coming, how did I get so fat" is what people all over the world are thinking. Lets do a little math to see how we all got fat.

3500 is the magic number. If we take in 3500 more calories than our body needs, we will put on one pound of fat. How easy is this to do? Unfortunately it is very, very, easy. Lets say you currently are drinking only one soda a day and you have stayed the same weight for years. Then you discover a new better tasting soda and you want two sodas a day. That soda may have 100 calories in it. This means you just added an additional 100 calories to your diet than your body needs.

Remember 3500 is the magic number and every time you add up to 3500 you just added a pound of fat. This means you will gain one pound of fat every 35 days just by adding 100 additional calories to your diet. That adds up to around 10 pounds a year!

Now think about what happens if you suddenly started drinking two additional sodas a day. What about those big gulps that are the size of your head? I am not just picking on sodas. It could be one additional doughnut, cookie, or piece candy. Those little thinks add up.

The good news is that that 3500 number also works the other way. Lets say you are drinking three sodas a day and you weight is stable. If you cut back to two sodas a day, assuming that is 100 calories, every 35 days you would lose one pound. That means you could possible lose 10 pounds a year, just by cutting back a little.

Remember this the next time you that one extra cookie.
