Plan of 2000 Calorie for Bodybuilders:

Food pyramid gives us a good reference for enjoying a balanced diet; however, some diet plans literally turn the pyramid upside down.

Consider the Atkins diet where protein-laden fats are encouraged and carbohydrates banned. To determine how many calories you need each day, use our daily calorie burn tool.

Calorie dietary guidelines promoters of the famous food guide pyramid which haunted so many of us back in elementary school.

A new generation of elementary school kids is getting to hear a slightly different message: Recommended ratio of meats to grains has almost doubled, and in fact, the recommended daily allowances are now almost the same.

Milk allowance has increased, and by comparison, vegetables' and fruits' allowance decreased. The truth of the matter, though, is that dietary needs are dependent on a number of different factors, such as metabolism, age, gender, activity level and weight.


Therefore, active men and women and men younger than age 51 will likely lose weight eating 2,000 calories a day.

2,000 calorie diets are appropriate for sedentary women ages 19 to 30, moderately active women ages 19 to 50, active women over age 50 and sedentary men over age 50 seeking healthy weight maintenance.
