The perfect food for weight loss
We eat to supply our bodies with energy. This energy is counted in calories and, for many of us, our intake is higher than our requirement. When we consume more calories than we burn, we gain weight, making it hard for us to maintain optimum health. Our daily calorie requirement is shaped by a number of factors, including our gender, weight, age and activity levels. On average, women are said to need between 1,600 and 2,400 calories per day and men between 2,000 and 3,000. By keeping our calorific intake in check and performing regular exercise, we can work to maintain a healthy body weight and enhance our general wellbeing.
