Know your BMR

Here is a great site for understanding your Basal Metobloic Rate, how much energy your body needs and consumes daily.  

Information like this is very helpful when determining caloric intake for loosing weight as you can monitor the calories eaten per day in accordance to your burn rate.  You would be amazed how (1) sitting at Taco Bell can slam 1300-1500 calories.  In most cases that is almost an entire day worth of BMR calories. 

Nutrition management is a science.  When we have awareness of how the food we eat affects the body, behavior to those foods begins to change.
