•    Very active
•    Active
•    Sedentary

VERY ACTIVE LIFESTYLE: Athletes, farmers, artisans etc belong to this group. These people exert alot of physical energy while carrying out their daily activities. They need a high intake energy giving foods, like carbohydrate, as staple food, high protein, fruits, vegetables and water intake. The consumed nutrients are rapidly metabolized by their bodies.

ACTIVE LIFESTYLE: Averagely active life includes regular civil and public servants, regular bankers, business men and women, etc. They also exert some physical energy but not as much as the very active people do, hence their dietary intake should therefore be moderate intake of high energy giving foods, lots of fruits, vegetables and water.

SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE: The sedentary nature of many work types is now becoming as much of a health risk as the stressful nature of others. Upper most on this list are the top class business executive. The low energy lifestyle of this group of people predisposes them to the increased risk of cardioviascular diseases. SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE CAN KILL.
