There is a lot of differences between gaining calories and burning calories. The definition of gaining calories is:
Energy your body does not use that it stored as fat. Examples of this are:
Eating to slices of pizza then only going to run for 5 minutes that would not burn all your calories. If you ate 3000 calories today then you only burn off 2000 then that is 100 calories felted in your body to get stored as fat.
The dentition of burning calories is:
Burning all the energy that you intake that day. So none of it is stored as fat because you burned it all off. Examples of this are:
Eating pizza then going running for 3 hours. You would burn off everything you just ate. Or eating goldfish that are 150 calories then doing a mile that burns 200 calories so you just burned more than you ate.

Wednesday I had a chocolate chip breakfast bar that was 50 calories. I also had a salad for lunch that was 138 calories. Yes, a salad is supposed to be good for you, but some times it isn’t.

I drink a lot of water too. But good thing for me water does not have any calories in it what so ever. For supper that night I had some beans which were 20 calories and some cornbread that was 119 calories. I also had some pork with that, that thing had I ton of calories! It had 585, most of the great food has the most calories it is just how it works.
One school days it is not to bad, but as the weekend rolls around it is a lot different story. You have more time to eat and you will eat more. For example this is what I ate on Friday:
I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich which...
