It is not a secret that the amount of consumed calories heavily affects your weight. Average amount of consumed calories per day is 2000-2500 calories. People who stick to healthy eating usually consume a little bit less: 1800-2000 calories.

Today’s heroine consumed about 5000 calories every day. She is not a famous swimmer, like Michael Phelps, who needs to consume this amount for proper trainings.
