It is very important for every one to have and keep a healthy lifestyle. In order to be aware of your diet, it is very important to first track your calories intake for each day!
Two keys to a healthy diet:
- Eat the right amount of calories (depending on how active you are based on your daily activities). This is to allow you to balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. The average man needs around 2,500 calories a day, while the average for woman is 2,000 calories. Majority of the adults are eating more calories than they need, and should eat fewer calories
- Eat a wide range of foods to ensure that you’re getting a balanced diet and that your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs. Your diet should include fruits and vegetables of course, and also some carbs and protein as well
In order to help track your calories intake everyday, just simply go to app store and download Calorie counter or My Fitness Pal (the picture shows an example of how the application works). It has a large food database that you can access to and allows you to track your calories simply by keying the food intake.
Good news, it can also help you take a few pounds off!
