It’s Not Just About Calories in Cakes

As you can see, there are quite a few calories in snack foods like cakes. But it won’t hurt your weight loss plan if you have occasional cakes. It’s the calories and foods you eat in your regular daily diet, that matter.

About Calorie Intake

One pound of body fat is equivalent to about 3500 calories. Thus in order to burn one pound of stored body fat we need to create a calorie deficit of 3500 calories. We can do this (1) by eating 3500 fewer calories than we need, or (2) by burning an extra 3500 in exercise, or (3) a combination of both. That said, if we eat too few kilocalories, our metabolic rate slows down as our body conserves energy. So if counting calories, do not allow your caloric intake to fall below 1000-1200 calories a day.
