How much should 20 year old be eating food per day?

How much should 20 year old be eating food per day?

It depends: Most women will do well on ~1400-1700 calories per day. Women who are very active or have high metabolisms may require many more calories (olympic swimmers may eat 7000 calories or more a day). It is possible that some women may remain healthy with fewer calories but a bare minimum is in the ~1100-1200 calorie range. ...Read more

What is the total amout of iron should be taken per day, specially for anemiac adult person and from what food should be eaen to get that amount daily?

18 mg/day food+pill: Anemic folk need food+supplement. To work, you should take it 1hr before or 2hrs after any food/drink. Best food sources are "heme" (from animal) - but non-heme (plant) can also be good. List: shellfish, liver, pumpkin seeds, nuts, lean red meat, beans & lentils, whole grains, dark leafy vegetables, dark chocolate, tofu.

My baby is 11 months and 9.5 kg , how many bootle milk and food should he take per day?He take 210 ml  bottle milk 4 times and 2 times food .

Varies among babies: A healthy, normal-weight baby is getting enough formula if he feeds a while and then smiles and starts goofing around. Be sure he has a variety of solid foods if solid foods are a big part of the diet (after 12 months, babies can eat solids 3 times a day, in a high chair at the dining table with the family). At the 1 year-old check-up, the doctor can check his growth and a blood test for anemia. ...Read more

You're fine: Truth be told, you've just reached the status of grown man. Congratulations on your progress in your studies. You're too big to be asking us permission to eat as you like. Physical fitness is much more important now than someone's idea of a perfect diet. I would caution that if you're a vegetarian, you'll do well to supplement -- get advice from a sympathetic physician / dietician. ...Read more

What's to be expected? Might varying food types and calories per day help weight loss?

What's to be expected? Might varying food types and calories per day help weight loss?
