When it comes to weight loss, we know that energy balance plays an important part. The idea is that when you take in more energy than you expend, you will likely gain weight. While when you take in less energy than you expend, you will likely lose weight. There are multiple factors that can affect weight such as:
- Macro intake
- Exercise program
- Resistance and strength training
- Sleep patterns
