Preparing meals with the right nutrition balance
I am the preparer of food in our household. My partner is wanting to lose weight, and I want to do all that I can to help him. He exercises regularly (goes tot he gym about 4-6 days a week), but our downfall is eating. I want to prepare nutritional foods and meals, but I get caught up on what requirements I should be looking for.
For example, I know we need to reduce our calorie intake. Based on what I have read, our calorie intake right now should be about 1500 until we are at desired weight. However, I know that it isn't as easy as just reducing calories, we have to make sure that we are getting the right amount of carbs, protiens and fats.
What I am hoping this group can help me with is deciding what what level of proteins, fats and carbs I should be targeting for in a day. I think that once I figure this out, I will be able to prepare meals and snacks that get allow us to be healthy.
Thanks to all of you.
