When trying to assess how many calories you should be consuming, you
should always look at the side of food packets, as all the nutritional information
will be displayed. For example, a man should be aiming for approximately
2600 kcal per day and a women 2200 kcal per day.
However complications can occur when you consume too many calories than
you burn or you consume less calories than you burn. This can lead to either
an overweight or underweight body.
The calories you consume must be consumed from all the nutrients mentioned
above, thus leading to a balanced diet.
