How many calories should I eat each day?
The calories you need on a daily basis vary depending on your age, height, weight, sex and activity levels. There are numerous calculators you can use online to determine your optimum calorie intake but we’ve based our daily menu plans on no more than 1,500 calories. For the average female, who is moderately active, this should generate a shortfall allowing for steady and controlled weight-loss. For those who find they need more energy or are happy with their weight, supplement our daily menu plans with our suggested healthy snacks.
Try eating leftover fruit and veg to minimise waste and save money. Nuts and seeds are also good choices, while homemade kale crisps, nut butters and veg dips will satisfy cravings. Get a sweet fix with Greek yogurt topped with unprocessed honey, dried fruit and desiccated coconut, or try raw cacao if you can’t manage without chocolate.
