Example of a 2200 Calorie Diet
Article by Diet Bites
The 2200 kcal diet may be suited to males with a medium size body frame and who have a moderately active lifestyle. There is a wide birth for inputting all the required food group servings and about 300 calories that can be used for your own discretion in choosing foods that you enjoy.
What benefits can we expect during and after losing? Let's name a few, shall we?
A stronger heart equals a stronger set of lungs; these two vital organs - actually there are three if we count both lungs - work in tandem to keep blood flowing through our body so that it reaches our vital organs and tissues.
Are those shirt collars starting to feel a bit tighter these days? What about cuffs that won't fasten around the wrist? Watches and bracelets? Losing will trim down areas of the body that are often not the chief focus; the wrists will shrink so that bracelets and watches are a fit - the fingers will even shrink so that rings fit again, and the neck will also reduce in size; no more struggling with fastening shirt collars, buttons or putting on necklaces.
Another area that will experience shrinkage amid the weight loss process is the waist line. Belts and skirts will suddenly fasten with ease, as will pants. Those pantyhose will also fit on the body a lot easier, too.
