Everything you eat contains calories. Your body is burning calories even when you are resting or sleeping. When you are sitting on the sofa or sleeping, your body still needs energy to keep functioning. Automatic functions, such as breathing, heart pumping, liver functions, the production of hormones and growing new cells, require energy. Energy is obtained by burning calories. You can’t do a lot to stimulate your metabolism to burn more calories, but exercise is one way to temporarily boost your metabolism to burn calories and lose weight. The more you exercise, the more calories your body needs for energy. The fewer calories you consume, the more your body relies on energy stores, such as fat, for fuel. Reducing your caloric intake by as little as 500 calories each day, combined with exercise, can help you lose up to 1 pound every week. (:
