Maintenance calories are the amount of caloric intake your body needs for optimal function and output. Things like blinking your eyes, tapping your leg, chewing food and pumping your heart all take energy to perform. If your body isn’t consuming enough energy (calories) to complete these basic tasks, it’s going to overcompensate from somewhere else to get these jobs done the best it can. This may be why your energy level is low, hormonally imbalanced, low sex drive and in-effective weight loss. A diet that supports these calories with personalized Macro Nutrients will guide you towards a well balanced - you!
