The Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation advises Crimeans to count calories

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation notes that overeating, excessive consumption of food is one of the most important problems in the modern world, especially in developed countries. On average, the world’s per capita calorie consumption per day is increasing, leading to excess energy consumption (calorie intake). This is the main driver behind the rise in overweight and obesity in the world today.

The best way to determine the volume of a diet is to calculate its calorie content. Caloric content is the amount of thermal energy that is produced by the body during the assimilation of food eaten (the energy value of food). It depends on the chemical composition, that is, the amount of the main components — proteins, fats, carbohydrates and other substances. Energy information is indicated on food labels. On average, women need about 2000 kilocalories (kcal) per day, men need kcal / day , experts say .

A person’s daily calorie requirement consists of two variables — individual energy expenditure and basal metabolic rate.

The basal metabolic rate is the minimum amount of energy required for the implementation of vital body processes (physiological, biochemical, functioning of organs and systems).

The average basal metabolic rate is the baseline. The optimal calculation of the caloric content of the daily diet includes an additional criterion — the coefficient of physical activity (CFA).

On the official resource of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, you can calculate your daily calorie intake

Please note that it is better to focus in the diet not only on the constant calculation of calories, but also on the qualitative composition of your menu
