There’s no easy way to diet. And while we associate diet with weight loss, diet simply means the food we eat every day. Starting a healthy diet means eating the right amounts of food from all food groups. You’ll want to eat many kinds of food. You don’t want to overly restrict yourself from any one food group.
A Well-Balanced Meal
The food pyramid is probably the best source for the well-balanced meal plan. A healthy diet includes servings of the following:
The daily calories you need depend primarily on your age, gender, body type, and level of activity. In general, active children ages 2 to 8 years old will need 1,400 to 2,000 calories per day. Active teenage girls and women need 2,200 calories per day without weight gain. Active teenage boys and men, on the other hand, need to consume about 3,000 calories per day for weight maintenance. People leading a sedentary lifestyle will need to drop their calories by 400 to 600 calories per day.
While it’s not an act of “eating”, exercise is part of a healthy diet. Choose an exercise that suits you. You can start by walking or jogging 30 minutes a day.
Living a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise can go a long way. It helps in preventing various lifestyle diseases like hypertension or diabetes. Aside from that, it also helps you look good and feel good.
