Simplifying the problem to the barest elements, he models the human body as a "rubber bag," where variables such as food type, frequency, metabolic rates and even exercise are considered negligible.
According to Walker, the difference between calorie intake and expenditure is the key a calorie surplus leads to weight gain; a calorie deficit leads to weight loss.
To solve the problem, one needs to monitor calorie intake and weight loss rate, and make the desired proportional adjustments to reach the desired goal.
While the diet is a fairly straightforward calorie -counting approach, data smoothing exponential moving averages in particular is considered a key element of the monitoring system.
