Thus, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association or ADA) has recommended a healthy daily diet for weight maintenance which includes whole grains (three 1-ounce servings),airy (three fat-free or low-fat servings), protein (five to six ounces of lean meats or other proteins), fruit (two cups) and vegetables (two-and-a-half cups)

Besides, women should also ensure that their diet includes vital nutrients like iron, calcium, vitamin D and folic acid.

Researchers have also asserted that irrespective of age, your health will benefit from a diet that is rich in plant-based foods and low on alcohol and caffeine.
