Eating Low-Nutrient Foods
The accepted wisdom is that the “average” woman should consume fewer than 1,500 calories daily, and a man fewer than 2,300 calories. To hold to the 90 percent rule, women should not consume more than 150 calories per day of low-nutrient food, or about 1,000 calories weekly. Men should not consume more than 200 calories of low-nutrient food daily, or about 1,500 calories weekly.
