Maintenance Diet

Ms Haritha Shyam, Nutritionist, Treatment, Maintenance Diet, Apollo Hospital
A Maintenance Diet is a type of meal plan that is designed to help individuals maintain their current body weight and support overall health and well-being. Unlike a weight loss diet, which aims to reduce body weight, a maintenance diet is focused on providing the body with the nutrients it needs to function optimally while keeping calorie intake at a level that will prevent further weight gain.

A maintenance diet typically includes a balanced mix of carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats, as well as a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It should also include adequate hydration and may include dietary supplements, such as vitamins and minerals if recommended by a healthcare provider.

The exact composition of a maintenance diet will depend on the individual's specific needs, health status, and activity level, as well as their goals and preferences. It is important to work with a registered dietitian or other qualified healthcare professionals to determine the right balance of nutrients for you and to make sure that your maintenance diet is meeting your nutritional needs.

In general, a healthy maintenance diet should be balanced, and varied, and provide sufficient energy and nutrients to support physical activity and overall health. Regular physical activity is also an important component of maintaining a healthy weight and should be incorporated into a maintenance diet program.
