Diet & Nutrition

HERE WE PLAN TO PROVIDE DAILY RECOMMENDED MEAL OPTIONS THAT WILL ALLOW INDIVIDUALS TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY AND BENEFICIAL DIET.

For Day 15, we’re going to allow you to choose your own meal! We have recommended nutrition facts below based on a 2,000 calorie diet, which may be higher or lower for individuals of different weight and age classes. Feel free to take foods from our Grocery List Essentials list. To ensure you are eating the right amount, here is how you can calculate your daily caloric intake. (click here). Once you find out your daily caloric intake, you will have to adjust the rest of the nutritional information so the ratio of the nutritional facts to calories align with the recommended nutritional information. You can also use the formula below to calculate the number of calories you should aim for. The Nutrition Facts below should be treated relative to the amount of calories you intake. If you choose a different meal, don’t forget to check the recommended range for your meal.

Once you can record this information, start eating! Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the night!
