Just a reminder that most meals should be 600 calories or less if you want to maintain your weight. Think about it, if the average human should consume 2000 calories a day, 600×3=1800, that gives you an extra 200 for snacks. That’s it. Any unused “energy” (food) gets stored as fat on the body and can only be “burned off” when you go into calorie deficit. Be mindful of what you eat, and don’t eat, and how many calories a day you burn. Everyone’s diet is different to them, and varies based on body-types, heights, weights, and activity levels.
