New health advice says men and women should only eat 1,800 calories a day -- here's the idea behind it .
Public Health England has issued new advice for how many calories adults should eat per day. Men and women should aim for 1,800 calories per day, which is considerably less than official guidelines of 2,500 for men, and 2,000 for women. -PHE is issuing the advice because many people don't account for calorific drinks when calculating their daily calorie intake, and go over the recommended guidelines.-Critics say the advice is a panic measure in response to an increasingly overweight population.For ages, calorie guidelines have been the same - men should consume about 2,500 calories per day, and women should have 2,000.
