A lot of information about ways on how to lose weight fast are taking the media today by storm and some even say that a wonder 1200 calorie meal plan gives fast results…
Search the internet today and you will be surprised to find multiple ways to lose weight , however most of them do not work. Why do I say so? The reason I am saying this is because the majority of people forget that the way they structure their diet is 10 times more important than the workouts they do.
How to structure your weight loss diet plan in order to lose 3-5 pounds per week
First, I recommend you watch the video below because you’ll meet my friend Diana, who has lost 15 pounds last month and she explains who she ate 🙂
The number of calories you consume each single day determines the amount of weight you either lose or gain. Having said that, let me introduce you to a weight loss regime that truly works provided you stick by the rules.
A thing to always remember: more important than the amount of daily calories is what calories you consume; so if you take most of them from protein, leaving carbs on a side, you can expect a weight loss of up to 10 pounds a week.
The 1200 calorie diet plan.
The 1200 calorie meal plan is recommended by most nutritionists and medical professionals because they feel it would provide enough nutrition to prevent malnutrition. However, checking with your doctor first before indulging in this kind of diet is a good idea.
What is a 1200 calorie diet plan?
A 1200 calorie diet is a diet that will allow you to lose weight while at the same time providing your body with the minimum amount of nutrition it needs. The rule of the thumb is not eating more than 1200 calories in a day for effective weight loss.
WHY IS A 1200 CALORIE MEAL PLAN GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS? DOES IT WORK?
Of course it is good for weight loss and it works! Losing weight is basically calories in versus calories out. And a 1200 calorie meal plan is the minimum you can eat a day and still go about your daily living. This diet works because since you are eating fewer calories, your body resorts to burning your fat stores hence resulting in weight loss.
The beauty of this is that you can also eat whatever it is you want provided you do not exceed the 1200 calories in a day. However, sticking to nutrition rich foods is always recommended. This is to help you keep your energy levels up and maintaining your overall health.
The best way is to divide your calories into 300 calories each in main meals [breakfast, lunch, dinner] and including the other 300 calories into both [snacking and drinks].
A 1200 calorie diet plan is not only good for maintaining sanity in what you eat, it helps you lose weight.Here’s how one lost 15 pounds in a week https://youtu.be/XbBB9Cgl1p8
However this diet plan is recommended for women, if you are a man and you want to lose weight using a less calorie diet plan, the minimum you can go should be at least 1500-1800 calories a day depending on your activity levels. This is because men have more muscle and less fat than women hence they burn more calories.
