kda0005's Low Calorie Diet


 Summary:

This is a calorie counting diet that requires that you commit to counting all of the calories that you eat within a day. You are allowed to eat 1000-1200 calories per day.

Once every two weeks you can eat one meal with more calories than usual. Within reason. Don't go out and eat one meal with over 1000 calories just because you can. Try and keep the value around 2000 calories for that day.

Only moderate exercise is required. While daily exercise is always good just walking or jogging for thirty minutes to an hour a few times a week is OK.

This diet is good because you learn how to watch the nutritional values of the food that you eat which will help you to maintain your weight after you stop dieting. it is also nice because you can still eat the foods that you like as long are they are in moderation and fit into your allotted calories for the day.

It is not the best diet for day to day weight results because it depends on what you ate and how much exercise you did the day before but it has good weekly results.

kda0005's top tips

1.Eat whatever you want within moderation as long as you watch the calorie amounts of each meal. This teaches you to be more conscious of the foods you eat even if you are not dieting.
2.Some of the foods from other programs are nice because they tend to be low in calories. Weight Watchers has a lot of good lower calorie foods and snacks.
3.Find low calorie snacks for between meals such as the 100 calorie packs that some companies produce. Fruits are also good between meal snacks.
4.Some frozen dinners like Lean Cuisine and smart ones are nice to have on hand in case you don't feel like cooking and they tend to be reasonable calorie wise.
