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. Pro tip: Eating every 3–4 hours is a great way to keep hunger at bay.
