Matzo Bread

Matzo is a type of unleavened bread cracker of Jewish origin. Members of the Jewish faith substitute matzo for bread during Passover, in commemoration of their exodus from Egypt during which their bread had insufficient time to 'rise'. While eggs and other food items may be included matzo, only flour and water is used to make Passover Seder matzo. The two most common varieties of matzo are: brittle and soft. The more brittle type of matzo is like a tortilla or cracker, while the softer variety is similar to Mediterranean pita bread.

Note (1) 'egg matzo' does not actually include eggs. Rather, the name refers to matzos made with a liquid other than water, generally fruit juice. 'Egg matzo' should not be confused with 'Matzo brei', which is a type of matzo omelet. (2) Matzo is also referred to as: Matza, matzah, matzot, matzoth or matzos.

Energy Intake Needed To Lose Weight

One pound of body fat is equivalent to about 3500 calories. Thus in order to burn one pound of stored body fat we need to create a calorie deficit of 3500 calories. We can do this (1) by eating 3500 fewer calories than we need, or (2) by burning an extra 3500 in exercise, or (3) a combination of both, the option favored by most nutritionists and dietitians. That said, if we eat too few kilocalories, our metabolic rate slows down as our body conserves energy. So if counting calories, do not allow your caloric intake to fall below 1000-1200 calories a day.
