At BYOU we have created two meal plans, which take into account the average height, weight and a moderately active lifestyle of the European population. We offer men the possibility of having a weekly diet with consumption of Kcal set between 1900 and 2200 for men and between 1300 and 1500 Kcal for women. The body composition is different between males and females and also the caloric intake needed each day. Women have a higher percentage of fat than men, for sexual and reproductive reasons and as a consequence have a lower basal metabolic rate.
The percentage of essential fat between the two genders:
Of this 12%, about 9% in women is sex-specific and corresponds to that reserve of fat purely concentrated at the level of the breasts, buttocks and genital organs, useful to make it functional for a possible pregnancy. These sex-specific factors will influence the differences in energy consumption and the basal metabolism between males and females. For this reason, the Kcal needed for the weekly energy consumption will be different for a woman compared to a man.
