Did you know, may people vastly underestimate the number of calories they consume during the day.
Normally, it is recommended that we should consume in the region of 400 calories for breakfast, 600 calories for lunch/dinner and to allow for additional snacks and drinks during the day.
In the UK, men eat in excess of 3000 calories a day, but say they only eat 2000. Women say they eat 1500 calories, while eat nearer 2500 calories.
The recommended daily calorie allowance is 2,500 for men and 2,000 for women.
When you consider these examples, it can take 22 minutes of running to burn off a chocolate bar, a chicken and bacon sandwich 42 minutes of running, and a blueberry muffin takes 25 minutes, it all adds up.
A healthy balance is needed between moderate eating and regular exercise to maintain a health balance.
