Losing fat and gaining muscle is one of the greatest desires of most people.; In addition, eliminating excess calories is very beneficial for reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol, but the truth is that it is quite complicated.
Weight loss occurs when fewer calories are ingested than the body expends, that is, you should eat less and exercise more. In this way, calories will not be stored as fat, but as energy that your body will use to perform physical activities.
