“Energy balance” is the relationship between “energy entering the system” (food calories taken into the body through food and drink) and “Energy leaving the system” (calories being used in the body for our daily energy requirements).This phenomenon is also know as CICO i.e Calories in vs Calories out.

This relationship, which acts by the laws of thermodynamics, whether weight is lost, gained, or remains the same.

If energy(calories) consumed is equal to calories burnt then you will maintain the same weight.If energy(calories) consumed is less than energy(calories) burnt then you will loose weight.If energy(calories) consumed is more than energy(calories) burnt then you will gain weight.
