1500-1800 Calorie Diet


My diet is pretty simple. I simply keep my carbs and Proteins to 80% of my diet, and then allow 20% to fats... I try and keep my calories within 1300-1500 range, but you can go up as high as 1800 if needed. The important part of this is this: VEGETABLES ARE FREE! Eat as much as you want to make yourself feel full. I tend to keep my fruit intake to a minimum, but that is my preference. I also take a protein shake (100 Cal per serving, 24G Protein) twice a day after working out. This helps to get my protein levels to where they need to be.

1.This diet WILL NOT WORK for those that have no will power. You MUST be able to say no to foods that you have loved your whole life. You have to be committed and have your final goal in site.
2.Form a routine. Although most people say not to eat the same thing over and over and over, I find it easier for me to eat the same breakfast and lunch, and then mix up dinner.

About / History

This diet was given to be as your typical 1800 calorie diet. I simply changed it around to fit my needs. I have a hard time following the prescribed menus, so I made it as general as possible... You only need to worry about calories, and Carbs/Prot/Fats. Once you get the hang of it, you will see how easy it truly is..
