1,800 calories and 2,200 calories are the recommended daily calorie intake for an adult woman and adult man accordingly. However, these recommendations are just for general reference. Everybody has their own specific calorie intake goal based on their style of living, weight, age and health status.

Practices to Achieve Your Goal

Go for Healthier Choices: Choose dishes with HPB tag on the menu when dining out, these dishes are usually lower in calories, provide whole gains or cook with healthier oil.

Sharing is Caring: When dining out with your friends or colleagues, you can plan to share your food with them if the food portions are huge.

Place a Lesser Amount of Food Order: While having a gathering in a restaurant with your friends and families, the groups tend to order a lot of foods. Before you finish most of the foods, you will probably already exceed your calorie intake.

Flexible: Do take note that calorie intake is a day-to-day goal. So if you have a heavy lunch, do go for a light dinner to achieve your calorie intake goal by the end of the day.

Request for takeaway: If the food portion is more than what you need, you can always ask for takeaway for the remaining food.
