Calories in, Calories out - who's really counting?


Many people manage their weight using the calorie in vs. calorie out method, a.k.a calorie counting. This method entails tracking calories (calories from food) vs. calories out (calories burned through exercise). This method allows those working out to eat more than their “recommended” daily intake of calories since they’re burning extra calories through exercise. While living in an energy deficit can result in some weight loss, some may also use this method to help gain weight or bulk up with higher protein intakes.


The experienced may find feeding the body enriching foods is far more critical when managing weight than counting calories. The “calories in vs. calories burned” technique we have grown accustomed to has not been proven as the most effective manner to maintain your weight. Suppose you are still counting calories from a nutrition label. In that case, we recommend using them instead as a reference to ensure your body is being provided with sufficient energy for bodily functions and daily energy intake.


The key to maintaining a healthy weight is a healthy metabolism. The power to speed up our metabolism is, in fact, in your hands and based on your activity levels and eating habits.

Metabolism means change. Our bodies first break down food molecules that will be released as energy. We then build up molecules to be used as the energy needed for bodily functions. This includes muscle growth and repair. We require nutritious food and oxygen to fuel our bodies and their parts. Rather than stressing over calories, we challenge you to fuel your body with nutritionally dense foods. Eating various fruits and vegetables, eating enough protein, and being active are integral to a faster metabolism.


Understanding "what is a serving size?" is essential in making wise nutritional decisions. Determining how many daily calories an individual requires can vary depending on age and activity level; however, most women may require 1600-2400 calories daily, while men may need 2000-3000 calories.


Our chefs and nutritionists have handcrafted every item at Meels to ensure any dish you choose will provide your body with what is needed to boost your metabolism, energy, and power throughout the day. Nutritional labels are a great reference to what you’re putting into your body. Still, we encourage those practicing weight management to not focus too much on counting energy (calories) but rather ensure you eat good quality food to nourish your body.


We’ve put in the research, so you don’t have to! Check out our menu, which will provide you with classic and exciting menu items made right.
