Healthy Lifestyle: A Balanced Diet Plan For Beginners
A good diet is one of the key components to lead a healthy life. Your diet should include different foods which will help you to get the required nutrients. Let me talk about energy balance as few of you might not have heard about this concept. Energy balance refers to the amount of calories taken each day which is equal to the amount of calories burnt or used by the body.
A balanced diet for beginners is no hard and fast rule, but again the whole point of a balanced diet is to include natural forms of food. Personally, I am a big fan of natural food items and I have mentioned this time and again. Fruits, vegetable , unprocessed milk, oats and nuts and peanuts are some of the good natural food.
Here is a balanced diet plan for beginners and there is always scope to make changes as far as you eat healthy food items.
Day one’s diet plan contains food items that will give you a good amount of carbohydrates, fat, protein and fibre. Here we are looking at a calorie range of around 2100-2200 calories.
