There's nothing wrong with being a little traditional when it comes to staying in shape. Here's an old-school, fuss-free diet plan for you. The Classic Diet has a macronutrient intake according to the government recommendations. A plan that advocates a great and varied intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grain options and healthy fat sources (such as fatty fish, nuts and seeds). Follow the rating in the app to keep a balance between what to eat more of and what to eat less of. Once you get into it you will be able to use it as a sustainable diet for the rest of your life! Don't eat below calorie goal, Don't forget to track what you drink.” Consider all of this as a general guideline, not something written in stone. The plan can be adjusted to your individual needs and preferences.
