Seems to be a bit of debate about calorie intake guides. As they are very genralised and also relating to SAD diet and weight charts.
Right so this is pretty standard :
1500 for women 2000 for men
With diabetes association saying minimum cals should be 1,100-1,200
The feeling I am getting from the majority is that eating when you need and by instinct is most important. However does calorie intake play any part in your day to day lifestyle?
I personally eat when I am hungry and fast when I feel the need to, but I still have to see a western consultant/doctor and trying to explain that I dont need to run to some standard calorie amount is becoming difficult.
I find it annoying at the utmost, I cannot consume enough to meet SAD calorie standards. plain and simple,
So.. any thoughts anyways? Topic for discussion
Hope that wasnt too confusing!
