To lead a perfectly healthy life, you need to introduce three regular practices in your life: Healthy eating, regular exercise, and mental relaxation. So just follow a good diet plan, go for a jog every morning and get yourself a premium massage recliner and you will be as healthy as they come!
The only vague instruction there was a good diet plan. That’s what we are here to tell you!
A healthy diet plan consists of food from every food group (Carbs, fats, proteins, and fiber) in almost equal amounts. The average number of calories a normal person should consume everyday should not exceed 1500 calories.
You must also keep in mind that regular snacking between meals is not as bad as it is made out to be. This doesn’t mean you eat a couple of handfuls of M&Ms’ after every meal; it pretty much goes without saying that you should snack healthy too! This is so your metabolic rate will remain constant and not have to accelerate up from 0 after every couple of hours.
The plan we will be discussing will help you consume 1200-1500 calories every day and will try to include all food groups too. It will help in shedding a few unneeded pounds without eating anything that is less than delicious.
