Caloric restriction means eating fewer calories than an average person. It’s important to make sure you are still eating the correct amount of vitamins and minerals so you do not get sick. Caloric restrictions will help you lose weight, feel energized, and live longer. It can also help prevent metabolic disorders.
It is easier to follow this diet if you replace calorie-dense food with nutrient-dense alternatives. It also helps to keep track of the food you eat to help hold yourself accountable. This will also help track deficiencies in nutrients and identify changes in diet or supplements needed to stay healthy.
