Eating Disorder Treatment in Philadelphia: Losing Weight

The exact amount of calories a person needs to consume a day depends upon personal data such as age, height, activity level, muscle mass, nutritional status, blood sugar fluctuations, climate, genetics, and frame.

Consuming less than 1400 calories a day is usually ‘too restrictive’. For example, the Average healthy adult female needs more than 1650 calories a day and more if she is physically active. Restricting calories through strict dieting causes the metabolic rate to decrease as the body attempts to conserve fat and energy.

If you are having trouble identifying a healthy weight loss plan, we recommend that you seek the guidance of a nutritionist.
