Let’s fig­ure out how to cal­cu­late your norm.

Employ­ees of the Pen­ning­ton Bio­med­ical Research Cen­ter in the USA have found out exact­ly how diets affect the human body. They pub­lished their research in the jour­nal Sci­ence. It turned out that peo­ple who lim­it them­selves in calo­ries expe­ri­ence much few­er prob­lems with the immune sys­tem than those who do not care about their diet at all.

Don’t self-med­icate! In our arti­cles, we col­lect the lat­est sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence and opin­ions from respect­ed health experts. But remem­ber: only a doc­tor can make a diag­no­sis and pre­scribe treat­ment.

What did you find out?

Sci­en­tists decid­ed to con­duct an exper­i­ment in which they put peo­ple and mice on cer­tain diets with a lim­it­ed amount of calo­ries, and then stud­ied their health indi­ca­tors. It turned out that in both the first and sec­ond cas­es, a bal­anced diet had an extreme­ly pos­i­tive effect. The immu­ni­ty of both the first and the sec­ond has increased sig­nif­i­cant­ly, in addi­tion, the life expectan­cy of rodents has increased.

Experts have iden­ti­fied sev­er­al more advan­tages of a prop­er diet:

  • pro­tec­tion against inflam­ma­tion;
  • improve­ment of metab­o­lism;
  • reduc­ing the acti­va­tion of inflam­ma­to­ry process­es.

Why is it important to maintain balance?

Don’t think that cut­ting calo­ries is the best solu­tion any­way. It is much more impor­tant to mon­i­tor a bal­anced diet, that is, to com­ply with the dai­ly intake of pro­teins, fats and car­bo­hy­drates. This will help sup­ply the body with the max­i­mum amount of nutri­ents and give it the right rhythm of work.

What does overeating lead to?

Obvi­ous­ly, excess calo­rie con­sump­tion will have neg­a­tive con­se­quences, name­ly:

  • decrease in mus­cle mass;
  • devel­op­ment of ane­mia;
  • dete­ri­o­ra­tion of hair con­di­tion, hair loss;
  • brit­tle nails;
  • drowsi­ness.

How to calculate your norm?

You can cal­cu­late how much to reduce the num­ber of calo­ries by first find­ing out your body mass index. This can be done at a fit­ness club or using an online cal­cu­la­tor. There are aver­age quan­ti­ties, like this:

  • for women lead­ing an active lifestyle — 1800–2200 kilo­calo­ries;
  • for men — 2400–2800 kilo­calo­ries.
