There’s something called the ENERGY  BALANCE  FORMULA that’s the basic way to keep from getting obese. We at Health Power use a slightly modified formula that means the same thing. Ours is the CALORIE Balance FORMULA. No matter which name you want to use, it’s what you do that matters. In fact, using the formula can also keep a person from becoming overweight, and that’s also important because many people who are overweight end up becoming obese.

  • The basic ENERGY  BALANCE  FORMULA is:

ENERGY (or Calories) IN = ENERGY (or Calories) OUT.

In other words, a person has to get rid of as much energy as he or she takes in.

  • The Health Power CALORIE BALANCE FORMULA is:


In other words, a person has to routinely do enough physical activity daily to burn off the number of calories that he or she takes in daily.

    Your question got lost in our system, and I’m just seeing it. By now, you probably have your website up, but anyway, I prefer WordPress.
