It is recommended that men consume around 2500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). Women should consume around 2000 calories a day (8,400 kilojoules). Try to include at least 1 starchy food in every main meal. Some people think that starchy foods are fattening, but gram for gram the carbohydrates they contain provide less than half the calories of fat.
A serving of fresh, canned or frozen fruits and vegetables is 80 g. A serving of dried fruit (which should be preserved for meals) is 30 g. A 150 ml glass of fruit juice, vegetable juice, or smoothie also counts as one serving, but limit the amount to no more than 1 glass a day, as these beverages are sugary and can damage your teeth. Try to eat at least 2 servings of fish a week, including at least 1 serving of oily fish.
Oily fish is high in omega-3 fats, which can help prevent heart disease. More than 22.5 g of total sugars per 100 g means that the food is high in sugar, while 5 g of total sugars or less per 100 g means that the food is low in sugar. Use food labels to help reduce consumption. More than 1.5 g of salt per 100 g means that the food is high in salt.
Adults and children age 11 and older should not eat more than 6 g of salt (about one teaspoon) per day. Younger children should have even less. Being overweight or obese can cause health problems, such as type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, heart disease, and stroke. Being underweight could also affect your health.
Lose weight with the NHS Weight Loss Plan, a 12-week weight loss guide that combines advice on healthier eating and physical activity. The combined total of fruit juice drinks, vegetable juices and smoothies should not exceed 150 ml per day, which is equivalent to a small glass. Make most of your meals vegetables and fruits (half your plate). Make sure that the color and variety are varied and remember that potatoes do not count as vegetables in the healthy diet due to their negative impact on blood sugar levels.
Brussels sprouts, a favorite of foodies who are often bathed in butter and bacon in restaurants, get a much healthier treatment with a sweet smoky glaze mixed with brown rice, rutabaga and kale in the “Smokehouse Brussels Bowl” bowl.
