Eating for a healthy diet can seem difficult and overwhelming at first, but it is not as hard as it may seem.
The key to a healthy diet is eating the amount of calories that equates to how active your lifestyle is. Taking in more calories than what you burn means you will gain weight, and vice versa.
To put it simply, in order to maintain your weight and be healthy, you must have the same caloric intake as your activity level equates to.
Furthermore, you should be eating a wide range of foods to get a full scope of nutrients that your body needs.
The recommended caloric intake for men is 2,500 calories and 2,000 calories for women, per day.
In these modern times it easier to get more calories from fast food etc. so it is important to watch what you eat.
