Sticking to 1,800 calories a day is often recommended for most women to maintain their weight, and for most men to lose weight. With that in mind, choosing foods high in fiber and containing lean protein and healthy fats ensures you’ll have a satisfying day, without going overboard on calories.
This sample menu gives you an idea of what a delicious 1,800-calorie day looks like with some of MyFitnessPal’s best recipes.
One of the best ways to lose weight or meet nutritional goals is to keep a food journal. On the MyFitnessPal app, you can quickly log foods, view a nutritional breakdown and see how you’re tracking for the day. Go to “Diary” in the app or tap the “+” on your homescreen.
