Low Calorie Diet Food

Low Calorie Diet Food

When it comes to losing weight there are many different types of diet food plans; low carb, high protein, low fat, and most popular, the low calorie diet food plan. This type of plan is one that is effective and rather easy to follow. There are two most common types of low calorie diet food plans. One is an extremely restrictive low (very low) calorie plan and the other is a common type of plan.

A very low calorie diet food plan is one that is extremely restrictive in nature and can consist of having as little as 500 calories a day. Consuming such a low number of calories a day is not necessary or healthy for people with only a minimal amount of weight to lose. Individuals who typically have a need for a low calorie diet food plan such as this are people who are suffering from moderate to severe obesity and are at risk for weight-related health issues. For those of us who are not at risk and would just like to lose some unwanted weight to be healthier or feel better, a typical low calorie diet food plan is best.

The average low calorie plan plan typically consists of between 1100 and 1600 calories a day. This is a healthy range that ensures your body is getting an adequate number of calories, yet more importantly is still allowing you to loose weight. At BistroMD, we follow a doctor designed low calorie diet food plan. Our weekly plans vary the calories day to day between 1100 and 1400 calories a day. This variation ensures that your body does not get used to one caloric intake.
