Daily diet plan

Health authorities do set some baselines - these are 1800 calories per day for men and 1200 calories per day for women. This may not be true person to person depending on someone who is tall, muscular, and exercises a lot.Too low calorie intake lead to reduced metabolic rate, catabolism i.e muscle mass is broken down for energy, sluggishness, nutritional deficiencies, fatigue and often irritability.

1200 calorie diet

1200 calories per day is about the lowest a woman should go when aiming for fat loss. For men this figure is around the 1800 calorie mark. The following diet plans are just given as examples.
