Ah, the age old question – how much can I, or should I eat?

Just as each of us is unique in our own special way, the answer to these questions is equally different for all of us. The good news is that FITTODO will help you find your own solutions! In our Lifestyle Planner, we’ll assist you in uncovering your own specific needs and allow you to smart making fun and healthy choices, and start creating a more fit and healthy you!
There are many ways to figure out and implement how much you should eat. However, the bottom line is if you eat more in a day than your body needs, you’ll gain weight. The same holds true for losing weight – if you eat less than your body needs, you’ll lose weight.

Make smart, fun and healthy meal choices, eat at the correct times, and eat less than your body needs in a day to sustain itself… and over time, you will lose weight. 

Once you find what works best for you and you’ve achieved your goals, continuing this process for the rest of your life will steadily build health and wealth and improve your odds of living a healthier and longer life!

As discussed before, FITTODO recommends eating six meals per day, spread out approximately 2.5 through 3 hours apart. 
Meal Plan
  • Breakfast
  • Snack 1
  • Lunch
  • Snack 2
  • Dinner
  • Snack 3

 Practice moderation and eat balanced meals for the best results. Eating more often may help curb hunger because it keeps you feeling full and satisfied. Skipping meals can confuse your body and mess with your metabolism. Plus, if you wait until you’re feeling ravenous, you’re more likely to overeat or make unhealthy food choices. Your mini-meals should be nutritionally balanced, containing complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats. Each meal should be about half the size of a normal, three-meals-per-day sized meal. By eating these mini-meals, you’ll still take in the same amount of calories and nutrients, but in a far more productive way to your overall health and wellbeing. 

The FITTODO Lifestyle Planner will help you meet your caloric range by the end of the day. You should also meet your body's needs for all other key nutrients such as protein, vitamins and minerals. The amount of calories that you require per day varies with your height, weight, age, gender, and activity level. Generally, men need 2000 to 2500 calories, while women need 1500 to 2400 calories per day. FITTODO takes all of these factors into account to provide you with the best guide possible!

Each and every one of us is an individual and has our own caloric needs. As noted, these needs depend on a variety of elements, such as body composition, gender and age. For example, those who are larger and have more muscle mass will need more calories. Men and younger people need more calories than women and older people. Activity also plays a role in the amount of calories needed. Women may need more calories while they are menstruating. If a person is run down, more calories may be needed to gain strength and recover.

In order to find your ideal body weight, you’ll need to calculate your BMI (body mass index) by using the following calculation:

BMI = (Body weight in lbs. * 703)
Height in inches 2

People with a BMI of less than 18.5 are underweight; between 18.5 and 25 is ideal, and between 25 and 30 is overweight. People with a BMI over 30 are considered obese.
