Even if you don't have problems with weight, to keep you in shape and to be healthy, is good to have an exercise program for at least three times a week and have a diet that comprises a wide range of nutrients. Although everyone knows that the foods we eat are directly related to our weight and our health, not everybody knows how to combine foods so as to bring the daily intake of elements that our body needs to function at maximum capacity.

To achieve this, we must learn to eat healthier, and eliminate from our diet foods that are not beneficial to our body, and also must take care that the intake of calories is not to low or to high, calories in a maintenance diet should not exceed 2000 calories per day. If you are overweight and want to get rid of extra pounds, it is recommended that the number of calories to be about 1500 calories per day, which is sufficient for the body to function at normal parameters. You should not starve yourself in the hope that you will easily get rid of extra pounds, because it would be a shock to your body to not receive the necessary nutrients, and when you will eat something it will begin to transform food into fat deposits to prepare for the period when it will again not receive the necessary elements. So starvation is the worst thing you can do when you want to lose weight and then maintain your desired weight, because the body will fight back and when you will begin to eat normally, the extra pound that you lost till that moment, will be submitted in a greater number intro a very short period of time.

So if you want to be sure that the pounds you lose don't came back , you must have patience and try to change your eating lifestyle and not just for a short period of time but for life. Many regard this thing as a dramatic one but it is not true, you can still enjoy the small pleasures such as chocolate, but you just have to make sure the amount you eat and do so as not to exceed the recommended number of calories a day, for example, if you eat chocolate intro day, you can opt out at dinner when you can have a fruit or a yogurt, foods with a very low calorie content.
