Fitness Diet Considers No Gender

Fitness & Gender

Fitness is for everyone and has no gender bias.

To be considered physically fit you need to follow a diet plan suitable to your body requirements.

The amount of calories required by a man is different from the calories required by a woman.

Generally, it is considered, an average man needs 2500 calories while an average woman requires 2000 calories a day.

Your calorie intake also differs with age, metabolism, and the category of physical activities you can perform.

A popular research magazine I read recently suggested that men are more likely to eat more meat & poultry items while women prefer to eat more fruits and vegetables.


To Each Its Own….

The food you eat doesn’t determine your diet, Right Foods Do.

Hence, it is very important to follow a Nutritious Diet Plan which covers all your body’s calorie requirements to give you peak fitness.
