Having a balanced, varied and tasty diet is possible and it can be learned! My mission is to make you discover the pleasure of eating balanced in all simplicity.
Nowadays, everything is learned, and everything is valid. We learn to read, write, count ... Later we learn to drive, we learn a trade ... But why do not we learn to eat, when it is one of the pillars of our life?
Our diet not only determines not only our body mass (which makes us fatten or lose weight), but also and above all, it has a direct impact on our health, our state of form, our physical performances and our mental performance. My goal is to show you that this is not the case, and to begin to teach you to simply adapt your diet, to preserve your health and stay in shape.

The notion of ideal weight is obviously relative, depending on whether one speaks from a health, well-being or simply aesthetic point of view. Moreover, there are several indices to calculate it. Beyond the Body Mass Index (BMI), which is used to assess the health risks associated with leanness or overweight, other indices offer a more personalized result depending on your gender, morphology or Your bone. Also, for some people who are doing sports, and competitions, the weight can't be the best reference.
YOUR DAILY CALORIE REQUIREMENTs?
As a car needs gasoline to ride, our bodies need energy to live and perform everyday tasks. This energy is measured in calories. Every day, you spend energy to think, walk, digest ... The amount of calories consumed depends on several factors: age, weight, physical activity ... But the fuel needed for your body is brought by your diet. It is therefore essential to know your daily caloric needs, to adapt your intake.
* The basic metabolism This is the minimum energy the body needs to maintain vital functions, much like a stationary car with its engine running. The basic metabolism varies enormously from one individual to another: it depends on age, sex, weight, thyroid activity, etc. For example, it can be twice as important for a growing adolescent as for an adult!
* Physical activity To "walk, take public transport, climb stairs, etc." "For a sedentary, to" do 1 hour of racing, 1h30 of bodybuilding or a day of hiking in the mountains "for the active.
To conclude: Our body needs energy to live, and this energy is provided by foods in the form of calories. The laws of dietetics can be summed up in a simple algorithmic condition: If my contributions > my needs → Then I grow If my contributions < my needs → Then I mincis It is that simple ! If you get bigger, you eat more than your needs; and if you can not get fat, it is because you do not eat enough ... But beyond the quantitative aspect of nutrition, attention must be paid to its qualitative aspect, which has a direct impact on health. Which foods to choose? Why eat enough protein? How to balance your fat intake? Which carbohydrates are preferable? Why not miss some vitamins and minerals?
