Every Calorie Counts In Maintaining a Healthy Weight Research Studies report 33% of Americans are overweight or obese

Or add enough exercise to burn an extra 500 calories each day Or combine them both, by walking 30-45 minutes each day (burning approximately 250 calories) and eating 250 calories less each day According to the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, Calories do add
