Calorie Diet Plan
are a variety of diets out there that can give quick weight loss,
but not all diets are the same or are healthy. We've heard of
the Atkins diet, the South Beach diet, the Mediterranean diet,
and the grapefruit diet, but have you heard of the 1200 calorie
diet plan? Let us explore what this plan has to offer in the realm
of weight loss and whether it is worth your time in pursuing this
Just as the name implies, the 1200 calorie diet restricts the
dieter to these many calories per day. Just think about how many
calories a fast food meal contains. You can easily take in this
many calories eating a breakfast meal that includes a breakfast
sandwich with egg and bacon with hash browns and orange juice,
and that is just breakfast. If we rethink breakfast, we can make
this work by having a ½ cup of skim milk and a cup of Special
K cereal and then a ½ cup of light orange juice. This will
run you about 40 calories for the milk, 55 calories for the half-glass
of orange juice and 110 calories in Special K cereal with berries.
This would be a much better choice and the total calorie count
is 205 calories with just 995 to go.
There is a new saying when it comes to consuming meals¸
it goes like this: Eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for
lunch, and a pauper for dinner. Going by the breakfast we just
ate, we still have some room to do a great lunch meal that is
filling and will get us through to dinner time. For lunch, a great
Caesar salad with chicken breast, dressing and croutons will run
377 calories. Now top it off with a diet soda and your belly is
full until dinner.
The tally so far is 618 calories left, so we can fudge a bit with
a snack before dinner. On the drive home, let's stop by McDonalds
and get a fruit yogurt parfait, this will run 160 calories and
is a tasty treat. Now that we are on the way home¸ we can
run by the store and get a Health Choice Chicken Teriyaki meal
that is just 360 calories that includes apple crisp, broccoli,
and rice with chicken teriyaki in sauce.
Based on this menu, it is possible to stick to a 1200 calorie
diet and eat well during the day without feeling deprived. Next
time you need to lose a few pounds, sit down and make yourself
a menu of foods that will help you achieve your goals in conjunction
with exercise. Stick with it and watch the pounds melt away.
