Calories, a measurement of energy, play a crucial role when one is aspiring for weight loss. If you have fewer carbohydrates, then how must you regulate calorie intake to ensure weight loss? Theoretically, if you burn the number of calories that you take in a day, your weight remains the same. And if you burn fewer calories than consumed, you will gain weight and vice versa. However, in reality, things are a little more complicated. Keeping a calorie count on a daily basis is surely not easy.

So here are a few ways which can help you regulate your calorie consumption:

1. Rely on proteins

Studies have shown that eating more protein can reduce your appetite, cravings and also help in increasing the number of calories you burn. So, try having a protein-rich diet like egg whites, boiled chicken, pulses etc.

2. Avoid liquid sugar

Another very effective way of cutting on calorie intake is by avoiding liquid sugar that comes in the form of soft drinks, fruit juices, etc. They are probably the most fattening part of your daily diet.
