Eating Enough

Part of the Intelligent Systems Reference Library book series (ISRL, volume 91)


Individuals want to lose weight, gain weight, or maintain a certain weight. Food is our fuel or source of energy. It is measured in Calories. The uppercase C indicates food Calories instead of calories with a lowercase c used for science experiments. However, sometimes the uppercase C is not used on food labels, etc. as it should be. (One Calorie is the energy needed to increase the temperature of 1 kg of water by 1 °C.) To maintain a certain body weight, a person must burn up (use) the same number of Calories that he or she consumes. The goal of this activity is to design a plan for maintaining a consistent body weight, while carrying out the same exercise routine each day.
