1. Health conditions – there are still so many people with health conditions who are unable to withstand the low cal diet. Medications, shots etc. might need for more calories to perform their daily tasks.
2. Body variations – Two bodies are not the same. What works for you might not work for me. So keeping these factors in mind, there are several changes to the calorie measurement.
