Balanced healthy eating diet for women


Men and Women are equal, we know that, but our bodies and our nutritional requirements are not.  In this post, Balanced healthy eating diet for women, we’ll take a brief look at some healthy diet tips dedicated to women.

It is established through studies that women have different nutritional requirements compared to men, an average woman should eat about 2000 calories per day to maintain her health, and approximately 1500 calories if she wants to lose one pound of weight weekly. An average man, on the other hand, will need about 2500 calories to maintain general health, and 2000 calories if he wants to lose one pound of weight weekly.
