How much calorie from food is needed for a healthy life
What are the calories?
Well, this is the most essential thing which everyone wants to know. If you wish to balance your metabolism or want to reduce blood sugar level or cholesterol and most importantly reduction of weight, then we should at least know little or more about Calories. I know its difficult to count your bite every time, but if we talk about a balanced diet, then calorie is the only thing we should take care of. Doctors, nutritionist, and even gym instructors all of them recommend going through the calorie chart for our health. Initially, I could never understand this calorie thing and then when I knew what the situation was, I could never measure the food and calorie content. It was difficult for me to eat a piece of cake and then the whole day survive on boiled vegetables.
Anyways thanks to science, which is so developed that we can know what is right for our health and how much is best for our system. So coming back to calorie, I have known something very superficial that I am going to share with you.
Calorie refers to energy consumption and energy usage. Ok now in simple language 'energy consumption' that means whatever we eat and drink and 'energy usage' means the energy used by our body while physical activities or physical work we do in our day to day life, basically calorie is the food of our inside body which gives food to our organs and cells.
So next we should know how many calories or food of body is needed? Well, the answer varies depending on the height, weight, gender, and mostly your physical activity. It may also be different for people on weight reduction, diabetes, pregnancy, etc. According to average research calorie for an adult female is 1,800-2,200 per day and male is 2,200-2,600 per day. This is for people with moderate physical activities if your physical activities are more then you should take more calories accordingly.
Finally, we know that our body needs almost 2,000 calories a day (female)so that it can feed our organs, cells, etc. If we take as required amount of calories every day then we can maintain a healthy lifestyle but more calorie will store and increase our fat, and less calorie will make us restless and ill. Next, we will talk about how to manage calorie without having a long list of calorie chart.
