A successful weight loss plan begins with making good health choices and sometimes it may mean making a healthy lifestyle change. Diet is one of the most important aspects of weight loss. When you eat, your body creates energy if it needs it, or stores it as adipose tissue (body fat). The only way to maintain your weight is to balance the number of calories you eat with the number of calories you burn.
Consuming more calories than your body needs from any source, good or bad, causes weight gain. According to the National Health Service (NHS), the recommended daily calorie intake is 2,000 calories a day for women and 2,500 for men. Foods which are mostly based on water and fibers contain few calories. They keep you feeling fuller for longer and don’t spike your blood sugar levels.
Here are nine choices that will help you maintain your weight and satisfy your taste buds at the same time while eating more food.
