The two key points to a healthy diet are:
- Eat the right number of calories for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink too much, you’ll put on weight. If you eat too little you’ll lose weight. The average man needs around 2,500 calories a day. The average woman needs 2,000 calories. Most 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.
Eating healthy is all about planning in advance and ensuring you have an idea of how eating a healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best.
