A woman needs between 1,600 and 2,000 calories a day


Controlling your obesity

Losing weight without affecting your health

An adequate supply plan is to eat proportionate amounts of basic nutrients such as, carbohydrates, proteins and fats that can meet the functional needs of your body. The formula for losing weight is to eat foods that contain less fat and fewer calories simultaneously.

Were prepared according to the level of activity of the individual, bone structure, a nutrition accepted models that supply from 1200 to 2200 calories per day.

It is advisable to have a supply less than 1,000 calories a day because the person is going to feel powerless, develops fatigue, changes in metabolism, productivity at work and mental agility. We recommend that whenever she decides to start a new healthy eating plan, you should consult a health professional specializing in the field.

Factors to consider in determining the amount of calories a person needs, among others are, if you are male or female, current weight, metabolism, height, age and type of activity you do daily. Also consider if the woman is pregnant or lactating. Other considerations are chronic diseases, such as kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, hipercolesteronemia, and obesity, among others.

A balanced diet should include the total calories to 30% fat, 55% carbohydrates and 15% protein. Each gram of fat provides 9 calories to the diet. Each gram of carbohydrate provides 4 calories and each gram of protein provides 4 calories. Since each gram of fat contributes to the diet 2 1/4 times more calories than contributing carbohydrates and proteins, then weight loss should reduce fat intake.

How many calories are in a menu burger

– Burger: 600 calories

– Medium fries: 353 calories

– Medium-cola: 145 calories

Total: 1098 calories

If we consider that a woman needs between 1,600 and 2,000 calories a day, this menu is bringing you into a single meal for half or more of your daily energy needs. According to Elena Merino, “really outrageous”.

Change it to:

– 1 fillet of grilled beef: 150 calories approx.

– 1 tomato and lettuce salad: 35 calories approx.

– 1 glass of water: 0 calories

– 1 yogurt: 45 calories

– Or 1 banana: approx 80 calories.

Total: 230 calories or 265 calories if you choose the banana for dessert.

The difference is huge. Even if you add one loaf of bread, some vegetables or soup this menu, you’re still a far cry from the more than 1,000 calories of fast food menu.
