We all know that a balanced diet is critical to maintain good health, we also know that part of this diet is to keep calories under control to avoid weight problems. On average an adult should be consuming between 2,000 and 2,500 kilocalories on a daily basis, more if he's into sports, less if he has a sedentary life, more for men, less for women. A nutricionist would easily find which is the proper amount for each case. Getting here is quite easy, but know it gets more complicated: what should I eat to have a balanced diet besides having calories under control? Make your own mix, here we show you how much of each of the 27 sample items, individually, you can consume knowing that the ingestion would be of, exactly, 200 kcal.
