Nigerian meals under 500 calories + Calories in Nigerian foods…500 calories Nigerian diet plan, 800 calories Nigerian diet plan.
A calorie is a unit for measuring energy. In nutrition, calories refer to the energy people get from the food and drink they consume, and the energy they use in physical activity like walking, jogging, talking, eating, cycling, footballing, reading etc. Calories are listed in the nutritional information on all food packaging. Many weight loss and weight gain programs centre around reducing the intake of calories (increasing the usage of calories) or increasing the intake of calories (reducing calorie expenditure).
I have received quite a number of messages from persons who want to have a list of Nigerian foods whose calorie is below 500 calories…just recently , a lady rang me up to enquire about 1200 Calorie Nigerian diet. So I decided to write about this today by giving you a comprehensive list of Nigerian foods and their calories….over 50 foods where captured here.
