There is no such thing as an ideal diet. Each person's diet is different from everyone else's and that's the way it should be because we each have our own unique bodies with unique needs and requirements. A diet is simply the food you eat, the way you eat, when you eat, etc... There are good guidelines that you can follow and then that you can customize to create an ideal diet for you. The guidelines are as follows. Eat 4-6 small meals throughout the day starting with breakfastEach meal should consist of protein (chicken, lean beef, fish, eggs, beans, peas, lentils, etc...), carbohydrates (whole grains, brown rice, vegetables, fruits, whole wheat pasta, etc...), and good fats (olive oil, fish, nuts, etc...)You need to eat the right amount of calories your body needs so that you maintain your current weight while eating healthy (and we all know what foods are healthy and foods are not). You can calculate your calorie needs using these equations:Women: = 655 + ( 9.6 x weight in kilos ) + ( 1.8 x height in cm. ) -- ( 4.7 x age in years )Men: = 66 + ( 13.7 x weight in kilos ) + ( 5 x height in cm. ) -- ( 6.8 x age in years )Any calories burned during exercise or daily activities are not included in the above calculations, you have to add that amount.The above calculations tell you the number of calories you burn a day without any activities or exercise. Work around this calculation and use it according to your needs. Spread your calories over the 6 meals. Try to limit main meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) to 300-500 calories and keep snacks between 100-200 calories. Try to consume three main meals and three snacks in between to give you constant energy throughout the day.
